It’s been a while coming but PS3 system software version 4.80 is finally here.
There has been a lot of talk about Sony implementing 2-step verification for the sign up process and what this could mean for version spoofers and custom firmware. It would seem that so far at least Sony have not turned on this feature but it does seem that the mechanisms for implementing it are already there as can be seen from some of the sign in screen messages.
So currently ps3 jailbreak 4.80 custom firmware is 100% working online with all cheat engines undetected. If 2-step authorisation changes anything here you can be sure find the latest updates to the situation here.
Details from Sony of what is in this version and how if differs from 4.78 are still to be fuly released by Sony but you can bet they include the usual “stability updates”.
The obvious addition of note though is of course the much talked about twitch app. With twitch seeing a surge in popularity recently an easy way to follow channels and discover Playstation broadcasters as well streaming live and recorded events is an obvious boost to the PS3 community.
Off topic but big news that needs covering.
If you have been around on the PS3 Jailbreak scene from the early days then you will remember the late Christmas present we got in 2010-11. Just as many of Sony’s consoles has found their way into homes across the globe a bunch of hackers busted it wide open. Paving the way for first game backups and then homebrew and everthing else that came after.
This time for PS4 owners its an early Christmas present based on the work of just one hacker by the name of CTurt.
PS4 Hack: Background of the kernal exploit
What Cturt did was discover a PS4 Kernal exploit which gave access to the ram and a way of patching the ram. This then leads to running of unsigned code.
What does this mean for PS4 users?
Well for current users there’s a working jailbreak with backup manager on the way. It is also likely we will be seeing dongles heading this way from China soon too.
For those people waiting until Christmas and a new PS4, all you can do is sit and hope that Sony don’t release an update before December the 25th.
For PS4 systems up to firmware version 3.11
