    Default Playstation 4 Firmware Updates

    Current PS4 firmware version: 5.00


    How to update your PS4's firmware via USB

    What you'll need:
    • A PS4
    • A computer
    • A USB drive with at least 400MB of free space

    1. From the root level of the USB drive, create a PS4 folder, and then create an UPDATE folder inside that, like so:

    2. Download the latest firmware file from here, and save it inside the update folder mentioned above.
    3. Turn the PS4 off completely so that the light goes out. If you can't get that to happen, holding down the power button for 7 seconds should force it to happen (until you hear a second beep).
    4. Connect the USB drive, and then hold the power button for 7 seconds to boot up in safe mode.
    5. Select [Update System Software] and follow the prompts.


    Note: if rather than just doing a firmware update you will be starting from a blank HDD (either because you're replacing the internal HDD with one of your own, or you just want to format the current internal drive for some reason) then you need to use a full recovery firmware (~900MB) rather than just the update firmware (~300MB). Full instructions on the recovery firmware installation process as well as a link to the current recovery firmware file can be found here.

    Using USB should be easier as long as the file DLed properly onto the USB. No dropped connections etc plus with everybody else trying to Download it should also be faster.

    Also Stiff does PS4 use USB 2.0 as well as USB 3.0?

    Can I use an external HDD to transfer the file as well?

    Sorry I'm a bit out of the loop at the moment.

    I don't think the PS4 supports external HD unless they're patching it?

    There can be PSN congestion issues at launch as a million people all try to download the same 300MB file, making it very slow to get (and prone to errors). Downloading it in advance gets around that.

    USB 3 is backwards compatible.

    Any USB drive will work but I assume it still has to be formatted as FAT rather than NTFS. That was the case with PS3.

    There was a link to the 300Mb & 859Mb versions (859 includes the playroom and is for setting up a replacement HDD) on the EU PlayStation site, but it was removed. It will be back on Thursday (EU time I assume). Probably better off using the files provided for our systems.

    Has anybody seen how long it takes to download BF4 digital? I'm thinking my link probably won't be the bottleneck

    Debating whether to take Friday off to play PS4 or whether I'd just be sitting there watching the download bar all day...

    Finally found a computer at work that isn't blocked to download this sucker,, doing so as I type.. Col I've decided that I'll probably end up buying the disc now ... Waiting for the download would be painful..

    Seeing how cheap it's going to be for day one release games I'm glad I waited to buy BF or any other transferable game.

    MD5 hashes were the same so they were literally the same files. It's possible they're planning on a new firmware release before launch though.

    That they've been removed is interesting though and krunt's advice is sound, I wouldn't recommend using the ones up at the US site until we get some clarification.

    Just stay tuned. The PS3 had only a single firmware file for all regions and hardware revisions, and the PS4 should be the same, but for some reason the EU mirrors of the firmware file have been taken down. Check into this thread before running your firmware update when your PS4 arrives, just to make sure there haven't been any last minute changes.

    i think all this frigging around is a waste of time.
    by the time you turn on a computer you could have downloaded and installed it imo.

    but hey, will be interesting if proved wrong

    how long is it taking to dl it on a computer and why will t be worse for a ps4 ?

    You can do it that way no worries. It might just take a bit (or a lot) longer depending on how the PSN copes with EU launch.

    Took me five minutes to download to day on to a USB stick.. And as the others have stated if the servers are chock a block on Friday by those downloading this patch.. Then it may be a drain.. But each to their own.. And all good Darad.. If you want to ps4 download.. Go for it.. It was just an offer I'd put out..
