Ways to use jailbreak on PlayStation 4

The safest methods to jailbreak on PlayStation 4 are offline methods without Internet access

From safest to least:

  1. Using the ESP board with an autonomous access point
  2. Placing the jailbreak code on a local server without Internet access (for example, on the Raspberry Pi)
  3. Application on a mobile phone with disabled mobile Internet.
  4. Run the server on the computer to use the computer as a DNS server for the PlayStation 4
  5. Connecting PlayStation 4 to a remote DNS- or Web-server on the Internet to run the code for the PlayStation 4 jailbreak

In cases of using DNS- or Web-servers on the local computer and on the Internet, it is possible that the PlayStation 4 may report about disabling of the license check system to Sony’s secret servers bypassing the DNS server settings on the PlayStation 4.
