Hello

I'm considering buying a new PS4 and modding it when a jailbreak for 7.00 comes out.

I have a specific list of requirements. I want the PS4 as the following (bear with me)

1. A tv receiver for BBC Iplayer, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky Go, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Sling, DAZN, Kodi (for media on an external HDD) and Fox Soccer (I live in the UK)
2. A emulation station
3. Rip and burn Blu Rays, DVD's and PS 4 games (pkg)

Is that actually possible?

Many thanks in advance

The last public jailbreak was 5.05. You might be waiting a while.

Well in terms of everything you're asking then yeah.

1. I would buy an IPTV subscription and use that on the ps4. You would probably have to dualboot linux and download vlc media player and watch on linux, unless someone (or yourself) created an application to stream watch m3u playlist files on ps4.
(or playstation vue)

2. You've left this incredibly vague. So again you'd probably have to dualboot linux and use qemu or something.

3. Ripping blu rays: linux.
Burning blu rays: might not be possible, depends on whether the dvd drive is capable of doing this or not.
DVDs: see above.
4. PS4 Games: yeah this is already a thing.


I don't get why though.
1. You can do this on your pc, and if you wanted a thing for your tv you can install kodi on a firestick and use that.
2. You can do this on your pc.
3. You can do this on your pc (with the right drive), and then setup a plex server and watch it on a firestick.
4. Fair enough you'd need a PS4 for this.

Firetv stick: €30 : https://www.amazon.fr/dp/B01ETRGE7M/
You can get a Blu Ray burner for aorund €80, maybe less elsewhere: https://www.amazon.fr/dp/B00DRHOLGC/
€110 in total.

Or you could just buy a ps4 confirmed to be on 5.05 or lower, like this bundle from amazon for €455.

Or go on ebay and get one for €220
