Lance McDonald, the modder who created the unofficial patch to get the legendary Bloodborne to run at 60fps on PlayStation 4, has announced jailbreak playstation 5 releasethus opening the door to the possibility of installing unsigned software on Sony’s next generation console.
One thing to keep in mind is that if we say it was announced by Lance McDonald, it’s because he doesn’t seem to be the person, least of all himself, behind the jailbreak for PlayStation 5. announcing the release of the mechanism , posted video in which you can see him installing a PlayStation 4 PKG file that could correspond to the fabled PT demo, Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro’s attempt to resurrect Silent Hill.
Jailbreak for PlayStation 5 so far offers a limited support by running only on console firmware version 4.03, which was released in October 2021 and was replaced by version 4.50 shortly after in December of the same year. As a result, anyone who updated their consoles after the first date listed will not be able to use the jailbreak, although that doesn’t mean they won’t be able to in the future.
That is beautiful.

Another aspect to consider is that while you can use a jailbreak, only that grants read and write permissions to the user, but not executeso while Lance McDonald was able to install the alleged PlayStation 4 game, he can’t get it to work.
As we can see, it was possible to jailbreak the PlayStation 5 to allow the installation of unsigned software, but this support, which is against Sony’s policies, arrived in a very limited state due to the requirement to use an old version of the firmware, because according to what is known , does not grant execution permission.
From now on, the typical tussle between Sony and jailbreak developers can start to take care of who will take the cat to the water, because the company of Japanese origin will certainly not like this news one bit.
