Hi,

I have my PS4 on 5.05 with HEN and several games installed.

Thing is I want to try a few games that don't work properly on 5.05 (like "Erica") and also want to play some original discs, so I was thinking about updating to 6.72.

So, I assume I just have to get the specific firmware for my region (EU) from the firmware archive thread, and just update normally with it,

but what I want to know is that if this will break my current library of games (backport patched especially) or make them disappear, and if so, whether I will be able to restore them with a DB/userdata backup I made from 5.05 without issue.

Also if there is any other issue you'd like to mention please do so (already know that it's not as stable as 5.05)

thanks!

I can't comment on whether your backups will be affected but 6.72 is absolutely fine for me. The odd 'out of memory' error but buttery smooth most of the time.

Good luck!

    usually the kind of programming that gets paid isn't the hobbyist side of it, but helps to create a portfolio of things you're able to do and for some reason HR and IT love that, lol.

    on a second thought, I will stay at Bitbucket even if they decide to scrap the GIT over HTTPS in the upcoming months. All these russian bots sure want to cause damage to dev communities. (like they did to nesdev)
