☠ PS4 WebKit Exploit 5.05 (PoC) by ALEXZZZ9 – Kernel Exploit 4.55 Code by qwertyoruiop and Exploit Implementation by Specter

Today a new Hack for PS4 Firmware 4.55 and 5.01 was released by several Scene Developers.

After the 4.05 Kernel Exploit the Scene exploded and many more people worked on Payloads and stuff to improve the Hack.

Hacker qwertyoruiop released the BPF Kernel Exploit for 4.55 and only a few hours later Developer Specter released a full Exploit implementation (userland + kernel).

And that’s not all, Developer ALEXZZZ9 released a 5.01 WebKit Exploit PoC (Proof of Concept) which work also on Firmware 5.05 and 5.50 Beta 3.

☠ PS4 Kernel Exploit [4.05] Code by fail0verflow – Implementation/Exploit by Specter

PS4 Hackers and Developers worked hard to find vulnerabilities in higher Firmwares than 1.76.

They decided to share their knowledge public to obtain a Kernel Exploit on 4.05. Team fail0verflow released the code with information on their Blog for the Scene (interesting for Developers with the neccessary skills).

Specter worked hard with the code and has created a WebKit Page (Binloader) with the implemented namedobj Exploit for Firmware 4.05 to send Payloads (.bin files) to the PS4.

Zecoxao shared a 3.55 Kernel Dump and Developer Wildcard will port the Exploit to FW 3.55 soon.

Open WebKit Exploit Links on your 4.05 PS4. You find Specter’s Page on SCE.Party as well.

The Mira Project – 5.01/5.05 Framework CFW by OpenOrbis

The OpenOrbis team announced the Mira Project this month and today they published a test release for developers. A lot of good Developers worked together since a long time, end users have to wait for Specter’s 5.05 Kernel Exploit.

The Mira Project

The Mira Project is a set of tools that grants you more power and control over your jailbroken Playstation 4. It is the result of all the hard work by the OpenOrbis team.

It works differently to the custom firmware experience on Playstation 3, where CFW would be installed on the system via modified PUP files (e.g. Rebug), however once the framework is installed and ran it gives users the same functionality they were previously used to.

Run Linux on your Hacked PS4 (4.05/4.55) – Psxarch Linux by PSXITA Team

Psxitarch Linux: A Distro for PS4

The PSXITA Team released their Linux Distribution for PS4 4.05 and 4.55.
Psxitarch is a linux distribution for PS4 based on Arch Linux, developed to be light, with low resource usage and easy to install. Support of all PS4 models except PS4 PRO.


– A USB device (better if 3.0) formatted in FAT32 of a size not less than 12GB
– USB hub (optional)
– Keyboard
– Mouse
– The payload to start linux: Download for fw 4.55Download for fw 4.05
– The bzImage (kernel): Download md5: 85d3a15a22380591f5519122f436c7ba
– The initramfs: Download md5: a3e4d2e6a15fea750ed4e8cccacfa112
– The psxitarch.tar.xz file (the distro): Download md5: 26bae18ccc2e2173109a7fd954657c08

The USB device that you will use will be completely formatted, all the data will be deleted !!

1. Copy the initramfs, the bzImage and the psxitarch.tar.xz file to the root of the USB device
2. Connect the USB device to the PS4, if you have connected other USB devices disconnect them (you must have only one USB device connected)
3. Start the exploit
4. Start the payload
5. Wait a few seconds, the screen should go black and then the rescushell screen will appear
6. Connect the keyboard, write: exec install-psxitarch.sh (the keyboard layout is set to US, to write the dash you have to use the ‘ )
7. Wait until the distro is installed (you should see a long list of files that are copied to the USB), the installation time varies from USB to USB (if you are crazy enough to install the distro on USB 2.0 it should take about 25 minutes)
8. After the installation the distro should start by itself and show you the login screen, if it does not start write exec start-psxitarch.sh (from the next restart the distro should start by itself, you will not have to write anything)
9. On the login screen, enter username psxita and password changeit
