PS4 hack claim found to be fake Earlier this week, an poster going by Reckz0r posted to pastebin about an 'exploit' for the new PlayStation 4 that would allow the console to be jailbroken.
The pastebin had links to a PS4 Devkit, and a full jailbreak package, but the files did not really exist and there were no mirrors to the links.

Reckz0r even went as far as to post a screenshot of conversations between himself and "playstation" on Twitter to explain why the files were taken down. Of course, Sony would never directly contact a hacker via Twitter, especially one claiming to have exploited their latest hardware.

With another fake exploit, the developer has once again sullied his name. Last year he posted a fake Xbox Live hack and copy/pasted other exploits and claimed them as his own.

lol That's just sad. It is just a matter of time though. Everything gets jailbroke eventually.

Just my $0.02,
