    HAVE I HELPED YOU? WANT TO THANK ME? ko-fi.com/kiiwiiaioguide :)

    With this guide you will have your PS4 on or updated to 5.05 (5.07 works too), and you will prep it for running exploits in just 4 steps!

    You will need:
    USB (2.0 or 3.0) HDD formatted as exFAT. 64GB+ Is recommended for even the biggest games, but you can use a 1GB thumb stick just for 5.05 update/recovery update)
    PS4 (any model) running 5.0X FW or below. (Linked to FW Bundle Guide by @Scarecrow B )
    A PC on same network as PS4, and/or an internet connection.

    Preparation:
    If you have a PS4 console running 5.01 or below follow the SAFE UPDATE section to upgrade to 5.05 via USB. If you have a PS4 above 5.07 FW you are out of luck for now.... ;)

    NOTE: If you have had ever run an Update Blocker payload before: you must use an Update Unblocker first or FTP into your PS4 (port 1337) and delete the PS4UPDATE.PUP.temp.net and the PS4UPDATE.PUP folders in the /update folder. Use any FTP payload and use filezilla on PC. Once these are gone you will be able to update through USB (BE CAREFUL NOT TO UPDATE VIA WIFI)

    Would have needed that bit about deleting the update PUP yesterday when I desperately performed an initialization update. I backed up my saves beforehand, though. Didn't hurt that much to reinstall a good amount of games, but it still took a while. :)

    i get errors when updating from 4.05 to 4.55 .


    SU-30634-6 and one about system memory errors - like hdd not plugged in properly or something.

    i actually tried a few usb2 and usb3 drives and extentions... the update .pup transfer to system memory then while installing it errors...

    anyone have any ideas on how to rectify this problem ?

    Have you MD5 checked the PUP? Could be corrupt download.

    Try re-seating the hdd?

    Personally, I would take the drive out and hook it up to PC and reformat it and do error-checking.

    thanks for the guide, anyway, just want to ask your opinion, with these released exploits, is CFW near? or does it need more time to be developed?

    Definitely needs time. CFW relies on keys and boot chain I believe, which no one publically working on that we know of.... yet.

    you know, after being console and account (ps3) banned by sony, I have no sympathy for what this exploit has lead to or where it will lead to.

    you may have used the wrong update file. there are two. one is the recovery pup for system recovery and hdd installation. that one is nearly 800MBs I believe. the one you want is around 300MBs.

    Hey guys i need some help.

    I got my brothers PS4 with me right now its on 4.07 i dont want to f**k things up because the 5.05 update is already downloaded into the system so i imediately turned off the wifi but when i choose to upgrade via usb it tells me something about DNS so i guess it wants me to connect again to the internet.

    Please can someone point me in the right direction.

    you can delete the update in the windows that shows downloads. uncheck download and install updates, then delete the update from there.
