Jailbreak for the PS5: We advise you against it for more than 3 good reasons
Once a console has been around long enough, it becomes increasingly likely that someone will find a way to modify their system. This is also the case with the PlayStation 5, with whose jailbreak, for example, the well-known hacker Lance McDonald succeeded PT, Konami’s playable teaser of the canceled Silent Hill reboot by Kojima Productions to bring to the PS5.
At its most basic, it’s about “freeing” the console from its “jail” to install custom software or non-legal games through the PS5’s debug settings. At this point, we don’t want to go into detail about how the whole thing works.
Rather, we will tell you a few reasons that will hopefully deter you from jailbreaking your PlayStation 5:
You risk losing your PSN account or Sony console banned becomes.

And: With a jailbreak you have to open in the future Updates give up your PS5.
If this brief overview of the potential reasons not to jailbreak your PS5 isn’t enough for you, we encourage you to reconsider your decision anyway. In the following we will go into more detail on the three most relevant counter-arguments.
#1 You risk getting your PSN account or console banned
Even after a jailbreak, it is possible to connect to the internet with your PS5. The console still automatically sends data to Sony’s server, which gives the manufacturer the opportunity to get wind of your venture. Since jailbreaking is a violation of the PlayStation Terms of Service, Sony reserves the right to permanently ban your PSN account without further ado.
Once this happens, you will no longer be able to access the PlayStation Network, with the result that you will have to say goodbye once and for all to all digital games, as well as the services and subscriptions you use. Since Sony is right with the decision, you should of course not expect a refund for your purchased content.
In other cases, it is also possible that Sony, instead of banning your PSN account, will put a stop to your entire console. That doesn’t necessarily make things any better, however, as it means you won’t be able to log into the PlayStation Network using the PlayStation 5 with any PSN account, whether or not it’s your own.
#2 You can no longer update your PlayStation 5
If you want to jailbreak your PlayStation 5, you need a specific version of the firmware that the console is running on. This excludes future updates, which means that you will inevitably have to forego the benefits of improving your performance, any bug fixes or new features before the jailbreak has been updated.
In order to connect to the PlayStation Network, your PS5 must always have the latest firmware. Once this has become obsolete due to the jailbreak, you can no longer register – and thus do without digital games from the store, even if you have already purchased them.
Also, the titles already installed on your console can no longer be updated and in some cases it is even possible that you cannot even get games from a disc onto the console. Because these can also require firmware that is more recent than that used by your jailbreak.
#3 Multiplayer modes goodbye
Another strong counter-argument is the omission of any online multiplayer modes of your favorite PS5 games – a consequence of the fact that you can no longer connect to the PSN after the jailbreak or the console is running on an older software version.
Sure, the local multiplayer mode of some games still lets you gamble with your friends. Online, however, this is no longer as easy as it used to be. And on top of that you can also say goodbye to the social features of the PlayStation 5, including the Share Play or the Share Screen.
