    Hello, my ps4 pro (cuh-7116b) is currently on 5.05 and would like to know what if i disconnect the Blue ray drive from inside and disconnect the connectors for rom and if i ever accidently update or someone else does. it will fail to update due to failure of Rom.

    I think you are on something: HW update blocker, guaranteed monkeys proof! ^o^

    FWIK with a broken (or disconnected) Bluray player, updates for FW 4.70 aren't possible, so unless it was changed with FW 5.05 it should be an option...
