How to host PS4 Exploit for FW5.05 right from your PC

has just updated this PS4 exploit host program to reflect the new FW5.05 kernel exploit thanks to lighting mods, vsoftster, Joonie86, & flat_z. This version for FW5.05 includes the Webkit, Dumper, Update Blocker, Hen + Mira, & FTP. This is a great tool for anyone wanting to host the exploit on a laptop or PC and not have to worry about the PS4 touching the internet everytime you want to launch the exploit.


How to run (Run Locally)

1. Download the files..  PS4 exploit host

2. Double-click the executable (`ps4-exploit-host.exe`, ``, etc). If it starts with no errors, note the DNS IP given
– Alternatively run it from the command line (`ps4-exploit-host.exe`, `./ps4-exploit-host`, `python`, etc)
– If you are not rooted when running on a non-Windows machine you need to use `sudo`

3. On your PS4 `Settings > Network > Setup Network` to setup a network. When you get to DNS Settings select `Manual` and set the Primary and Secondary DNS to the IP address you got like above.

4. Double check and make sure the PS4 is on firmware version 5.05 or 5.07 (`Settings > System > System Information`).
– If your firmware version is higher then 5.05 or 5.07 you are out of luck there is no public exploit available and you cannot downgrade.

5. On the PS4, go to `Settings > User’s Guide` and select it. The exploit should run and there should be output on the script window.6. From there you can just pick which payloads you’d like to run for Fw5.05

7. When done use `Ctrl+C` to cleanly close the application.


Linux versions, Arm version, and Source can be found here.

  1. Hi its not possible to connect my ps4 to the host ,, internetconnection failed ,, i used the ip the tool gave me . need some help

    • hackinformer

      Your PS4 will need to be connected to your home network and then use PS4 host on the PC. Then put in the DNS is gives you into the PS4 network settings manually. Go to the user guide in the setting on the PS4 and the web browser with the exploits you can run will show up.

      • that is exactly what i did , but the test show me internet connection failed
        and it is imposible to run the exploit from the guide menue ,

  2. i do the exact same thing but the buttons arent visible on the network settings manually

  3. Hi,
    I’m new at the scene and need an explanation.

    When I starting the user guide is the exploit already loaded? Because the the buttons Dumper, Ftp, … are payloads or is the exploit injected in each payload?
    And what is the Website Button doing?

    Thanks in advance

  4. Sorry I mean *Webkit Button

    • When you see the webpage with the dumper, http://ftp..etc.. you pick which one you want to do and it will load the payload/exploit & tools to either dump a game, run FTP etc.. Each one of these injects the payload and each one is done one at a time. Meaning you want to use FTP, run it and that’s what you use when if you want to dump a game you run that. It’s best to reset the system after you are done using each of the payloads you want as some can conflict with each other and just lock up the system or just shut it down out of nowhere once you tried to trigger the second payload.
