    Ready to get your stability on? Because the PlayStation 4 has a brand new update for you to download. Official firmware version 7.50 is available, with the minimal patch notes claiming that the update "improves system performance". The update is just over 450MB, so if you do need to grab the new firmware, it shouldn't take that long to do so.

    I don't think system version would affect the Save Wizard, since changing how save files are encrypted would just utterly wreck Sony's reputations via loss of game progress.

    It's not like this is homebrew, or something affecting the console runtime, which can be negated via updates. Save file encryption is set in bedrock from launch to death, to avoid PR shitstorms and maintain compatibility. Which makes it far easier to decrypt those files, edit them, then re-encrypt them.

    This proves something is patched on just previous update.

    Taken from the Discord: Some players are reporting that 7.50 is actually messing stuff up for saves after editing them with save wizard.

    I don't know exactly but it's happened before this update. These people use save wizard almost everyday so I've ruled out stupidity.
    https://discord.gg/xeFYmv Plus the servers have been overloaded since they released Final Fantasy 7 cheats but that's just an internet issue.

    So that's why uploading my Persona 5 Royal save takes forever now...I thought it was my anti-virus or something. Dunno why I need to upload my save, why it can't be done locally, in order to hex-edit it. Quick Cheats, maybe, but surely those cheats for games I've got save files for could just be downloaded once and applied locally too.

    Anyway, I wonder why 7.50 causes issues...maybe it is a new encryption method, or something.

    https://www.ibtimes.com/playstation...cant-issues-including-boot-loops-boot-2960850

    Sony's recent PlayStation 4 firmware update 7.50 has caused a slew of issues for users, including boot loops, boot failures and unresponsive consoles.

    The patch originally went live Thursday (April 16) following a round of beta testing that spanned several weeks. It released to little or no advance warning, as it was not considered a major update, and thus fans downloaded it and went along with their business as usual.

    However, now fans are reporting via the PlayStation 4 subreddit that there have been several frustrating problems that have arisen along with the update's launch. Patch 7.50 has reportedly caused some PlayStation 4 systems to completely fail to boot up. Others have seen problems with infinite boot loops, where the system attempts to start up, then shuts down immediately afterward and repeats without allowing users to interact with the console.

    Further, some users have reported problems with the error code SU-42118-6. This is an error code typically associated with the system's Blu-ray drive. It's preventing the update from being installed. Finally, some players are having trouble with their PlayStation 4 systems starting up, but appearing unresponsive.

    PlayStation 4 subreddit users have suggested trying to eject Blu-ray discs from the system before beginning an update. Alternatively, if the system is already affected by one of several errors, try restarting the system in safe mode. You can do this by holding down the power button for 10 seconds and using a USB drive to install the firmware.
    Sony has yet to release an official statement on the issues reportedly being caused by the new patch.

    Did they, like, bypass the QA team and release it half-assed, or something? This is not what I expected one of the largest gaming companies to do; make their usually quite reliable consoles bug-ridden paperweights.
    Especially now, when their console is more appealing than ever due to the multinational lockdown.

    I wonder when we'll see 7.60? Or a reversion to whatever the previous update was?
