Playstation 4 Jailbreak !!

Sony's PlayStation 4 – the hottest-selling gaming console in the United States – has been in the market for a while now, and since its release, hackers have been tinkering with it to find a way to run unauthorized software.
 
Though breaking the protection on PlayStation 4 is a huge deal, a hacker who calls himself CTurt has claimed to develop a fully jailbroken version of the PlayStation 4 with the help of a kernel exploit that he previously created.The current jailbreak allows dumping of the system RAM from other processes and installing custom firmware that can be used to run homebrew applications that aren't approved by Sony.

Thanks Abhishek for sharing this. 

 

I also read about how the hacker actually did this. He exploited most recent version of PS4 firmware - PlayStation 4 v1.76 firmware to inject an external code in the system, thereby taking control of the hardware. The article also mentioned that the exploit only worked for PlayStation 4 firmware version 1.76 but apparently it could be tweaked to work for more recent firmware.
