In the end, every console is a victim of hacks and exploits in order to run homebrew applications (and thus also full-fledged games). While Sony was known for its tight security during the PlayStation 3 days, its successor – the PlayStation 4 – was quicker to act, although the Japanese manufacturer was always quick to fill in holes with a new patch.
However, hackers don’t know when to stop, because three of the hackers split up Twitter New exploit they started working on firmware 9.00 and earlier. This exploit makes it possible to run a custom firmware so homebrew applications will not be long into the future.
The news does not stop there, because one of the hackers – Tweet embed – Indicates that the PlayStation 5 can be exploited in the same way. However, they can’t verify this as the lead developer doesn’t have access to Sony’s new console at the moment.

Well, it was just a doomsday joke.
Exploitation is legitimate and as a reward:
The kernel exploit affects Playstation5 too!
(No, the ps5 is not ready or released, the lead developer does not currently own a ps5 console)
