We can safely say that technology and hacking coexist. The saying is also applicable on PS4 as well. The hacking here is different from what normally comes to your mind, you can hack your PS4 for your own benefit although it is illegal and not recommended but it is happening and people do outweigh the legal actions against the benefits that come along with it.
We will now list down a few hacking ways that are applicable on PS4 as of today:
Jailbreaking gets rid of some restrictions that Sony has put on your PlayStation. This means that it allows you to download certain third-party apps, automatically changing your system in a number of ways.
However, it comes with a condition, if you are caught your warranty will be void, you will not be able to play online anymore and in the worst-case scenario, you can be banned permanently from all PlayStation networks.
The app on your phone is completely free of cost and it comes along with lots of benefits. It enhances your experience of using PS4 by giving you the comfort of chat, you can browse the store, look up your trophies and it can be used as a replacement for screen to review menus. The best part is that with the help of this app, you can use your mobile phone as a keyboard and you will no longer need to type with the help of controllers.
Third party themes
You can legally purchase third-party themes on PlayStation but if there is something, you want and it is not allowed on the PS4 you will need to jailbreak your PS4 and you will be able to download all third-party themes that previously were restricted on your device.
The mighty adapters
The adapters are a great way to improve your PS4 experience. With the help of adapters, you can use the controllers for other systems as well. Now, these adapters do not directly come under the list of hacking and it is more like a trick invented by people who want to enhance the experience as much as they can.
Mods and cheats
Normally we have seen mods exclusively for PC but now we see the mods for PS4 – only applicable if you have hacked your system jailbreak it – which can enhance the user experience on a whole new different level. You can add mod menus to almost all of your games and change the quality of your games on a different level while playing it on the PS4 console.
Now, when you hear the word of hacking the other thing that comes to your mind is cheats. The cheats also increase the user experience.
Emulation of the console
Having each console be at its own point will make it so much easier to write. Moreover, for sure, it is too cheap, for anyone. There is a variety of hacks out there to play all sorts of games and they can even hack Linux alongside other different programs to run emulators.
You can hack your system for a greater benefit that comes along with it; comfort. However, beware of being caught because a permanent ban can be imposed and you will in hot waters very soon.
