Found this video on Youtube to access the PS and forcing your way in by repeatedly trying to connect and canceling the update.



This guy tried up to FW 4.00 but I have just confirmed working on FW 4.02 and now downloading the matrix UE5 demo.
If you don't play online then there really is no reason to update now.

Can anyone else give it a try to confirm again?

Update:
So anything you have purchased before being forced to update for PS store will download and play fine but anything you purchase after being locked out of the store will not be able to authenticate. Working on a solution.

Update #2:
Found much easier way to bug since every time you shut off (rest mode is okay) you will have to do it again, But have the ps plus and ps now icons next to each other and alternate attempt to sign in back and forth and I was able to get PS store access in under 2 mins.

Update#3:
Was able to get the ps4 version of quake to install and play (authenticate) after leaving ps5 in rest mode over night.

I can confirm. It works.
Been going back and forth between ps now and ps plus, did rest mode, woke it, did ps now and plus again for a while, then rest mode again, then ps now and ps plus a few more times... and then managed to sign in under accounts in settings.
Now i can download my DLC for my PS4 games.

Thanks for letting us know mate!

EDIT: Sadly my content cant verify that i have the license. What a shame.
I hope leaving it in rest mode works for me, too

EDIT 2: It activated. So happy, i cant believe it.
Will it stay activated now tho?

Had you signed in previously on older firmware or never signed in before? Just wondering if it's possible to get this to work on a new out of the box console on 4.03

You can use this Bug with your first Sign In into PSN. Works the same as mentioned above. Took 5 min. :) (also created new PSN Account this way). (Bad english, sorry --> I'm german)

Update:
If you want to activate your stuff simple activate the Offline-Play (same Method as above, try and try and avoid the update)

Can someone post a video or detailed instructions how to get this working? I've tried so many times but I still couldn't get pass the firmware update check.
I've got a brand new PS5 on 3.20 FW, never logged in to PSN, I don't have PS Plus or Share Factory apps. How do I make it glitch this way?

I first had to update the firmware to 4.03 before it worked

Currently I do have 04.03 firmware version but I do not have that video editing application. Is it possible to somehow download that or to abuse this somehow in any other way?

EDIT: Just spammed PS Plus and PS NOW icons and got it to work, you do not need that video editing application

I'm wondering something similar. I have a 03.20 console that's never been signed into PSN/had any updates installed so only has the Playstation Store and Astro's Playroom. I tried just launching and closing the Playstation Store app but no luck.

(I also have Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition, The Last of Us Remastered and Uncharted 4 on disc that came with my PS4 bundle, I don't think those will help haha)

Update to 04.03, do this bug and it will sign in to PSN and you will be able to login

@popescu Disable all automatic downloading of system updates. Check Rest mode features to ensure that no system updates will get downloaded during sleep mode. Now put PS5 into rest mode with network enabled. Leave it like that for an hour or two, maybe even overnight. The PS5 will eventually aquire the license during that time and the content will now work.
