    can't you read? There is possibly a hack on 4.01 ? Why the hell would you update unless you want to wait 5 years on a new exploit damn...

    I am guessing playing pirated games currently would be like playing pirated games with Loadiine. It would suck, but work. As time goes on if a CFW comes out pirating will become better like the WudInstaller exploit. Idk if its just me I am more excited for SteamOS than pirating PS4 games. :)
    My friends will be sooooo jealous I can play some XBOX only games on my PS4. (Like Left4Dead 2, etc.)

    Not gonna be a ps5. Sony is releasing a ps4 upgrade called the ps4 pro which can be upgraded over time similiar to a pc so there will not be a need for a ps5.

    I forgot
    1. The only reason the 1.76 exploit was "shit" was because it came out a year after the firmware came out, when Sony (and everyone else) updated their console. Virtually no one had a 1.76 PS4, so virtually no one bothered developing anything for it. It's the same thing as Rejuvenate for the Vita, few people got it, so few people developed true Vita homebrew. If this hack were legitimate, it'd get infinitely more attention since a ton of people were sitting at 4.01.
    2. People used to just spoof eboots to get new games running on 3.55, I imagine the same thing could happen here, too.

    ps3 was offline only after 3.55 jailbreak? and games for higher FW were patched really quickly!

    I had that same problem, decided to format my HDD by using the Initialise PS4 option.

    You don't need to block using DNS, but you DO need to disable automatic updates in the settings.

    The spoofing thing on the PS3 only worked because they got all necessary keys to do it.
    On PS4 this isn't the case.
    It may become like it's on the Vita were you can go online, but new games will only run
    if you update.
    On the vita people were lucky until now because games used an older sdk version, but it will inevitably come to the point were KH3 or Persona 5 or similar great games will not run.
    If they would succeed in pirating the PS4.

    The comparison with the PS3 doesn't really help your point because a Rebug CFW PS3 is arguably the best modded console setup you can have. We now have s CFW running a modified 4.80 that can do everything - homebrew, piracy, PS1/2, FTP, the works, with full online capability.

    But I recognise your point - it will take a long time to reach that stage. We know that. But we also know that 3.55 was the one and only chance with the PS3, and don't want to miss that same chance with the PS4.

    I am lucky enough to also have an Xbox One and gaming PC, so I can give my PS4 a bit of a rest.

    Good thing I came here before updating.

    0 dollars is about what ps4 games are worth or even less depending on how much money one makes.

    i read on wololo someone saying 'update your ps4' to the latest, for the hax of that TRSI group.
    as it supposedly will work even on the latest fw.

    but i think i will stay on 4.01 for now.

    Stay on 4.01 if you're not sure. You can always update to 4.05 from USB later.

    Hope it may allow firmware spoofing (if it allows homebrew on 4.01+), want to access the store again.
    Also hope it'll work on the ps4 pro.
