A Jailbreak was achieved by using an existing and public WebKit exploit, again made available by Luca, in order to find a vulnerability within the PS4’s firmware. Luca has posted a photo to Twitter that would appear to corroborate this, too. However, before anyone gets too excited, we are still a way off this being made available for anyone else to try out with the chief reason for that being a need to keep vulnerabilities a secret.

If Luca does hold his jailbreak back in order to protect the exploit it uses, then while today’s news is important for the community, it will only serve as a source of frustration that a PS4 jailbreak is so near yet so far away. For now, it would seem that all we can really do is hope a second exploit is found, and found soon enough. A


As always has been the case, we will keep you updated as soon as we get to learn more about the whole PS4 jailbreak situation. Stay tuned for more.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you hope he releases it or would you rather something like this be kept private?
