If you wish to get more out of your PS4, especially now that the new gen console is out, you should consider jailbreaking it!
That’s right! It may make you feel old to hear this but the PS4 is pretty much a retro gaming console at this point due to the release of the PS5 making it obsolete in the near future when dev companies will stop making games for it.
However, that being said, the PS4 Pro in particular, is such a powerful device that can handle pretty much everything you through at it, which also means it’s quite a great console to mod!
This can open up a new world of possibilities for PS4 owning gamers by adding a bunch of features that are usually not available.
With that being said, here are some cool things your jailbroken PS4 can do for you!
- It Can Create Custom Themes!
A jailbroken PS4 offers a lot of customization options, allowing you to change pretty much every element of the theme.
You’ll be pleased to know that there are all kinds of different graphics, variations and colors you can choose from, personalizing everything to suit your taste and aesthetic without a problem!
If you are someone who prefers games that offer great character creation, you are sure to enjoy this!
- It Allows You to Install and Run Linux
If you wish to play Steam games on the PS4, all you need to do is get Linux on the go but keep in mind that you’ll have to do a lot of research since it takes some serious Linux knowledge to make some of the bigger and newer games work on the console.
- It Can Emulate Other Games
A notable benefit of jailbreaking your PS4 is that it allows you to play PS1 and PS2 games on it as well, letting you enjoy some extra backwards compatibility!
And that’s not all! You could even take this a step further by downloading emulators like RetroArch in order to emulate tonnes of some other consoles.
- You Can Access FPS Patches and Cheats
Arguably one of the best features of a jailbroken PS4 is being able to download 60FPS patches for all your older favorites.
In addition to getting better patches for games like Bloodborne, Alien Isolation and Witcher III, you can also get some useful cheats!
If you wish to upload cheat files into that mix, PS4 Trainer and Multitrainer both come with a number of different great options.
Not to mention that you can even make your very own cheats as well with just a little practice!
