    With the release of a kernel exploit for 4.05 I'm sure a lot of people will start looking where to buy a ps4/ps4 pro/ps4 slim within the correct firmware range. I think it would be a good idea to have a thread to share the firmware you got with your ps4, when and where do you buy it and also if it was a regular/slim or pro version. I tried looking for some info but only found a thread in wololo for firmware 1.76.

    HOW THE MANUFACTURED DATE LOOKS LIKE
    Manufactured code is 04/2015

    I just checked my PS4 Pro box, there’s a date like 2017/01 on a sticker of the barcode, and it came with 3.70. Maybe checking the date on the box would help? (If you pick them up from the store.)

    Yeah, I think that we can build a list based on the manufacturing date + firmware found.
    Btw, just added yours as reference. Is your console NA, EUR or JPN?

    JPN. Also, my slim with the same 2017/01 manufacturing date came with 4.07. So seems Pro got older firmware.

    Is the date 2017/09? That bundle we have here was made in 2017/09. If so then it's amazing that they use old fw on such newly made machines in EU.

    Then of course it's < 4.05 as it was released in 25th Oct. 2016. Dates before Oct. 2016 should get you an exploitable machine for sure.

    But wasn't Horizon Zero Dawn released on 2017?

    I thought this format might be a bit cleaner looking. Firmware is of course relevant, the date it was manufactured (Retail units shipped before the 4.06 firmware hit are of course going to have lower firmware), retailer (In case a retailer has old stock. It'd be nice to know which one the PS4 was bought from), date purchased (Ties in with the retailer section. If someone bought a PS4 Pro from Target online and it came with 3.55 then this'll help) as well as if it was a bundle console. I'm not sure if PS4 boxes have a slot at the bottom of the box that shows the serial number but if they do then it might help to go the Switch route. (They're collecting the first few digits of the serial number to correspond them with the software version they ship with.)

    Machine was made back in 2015, and then repacked with HZD in 2017? Otherwise it won't be possible to have a 2015 date? (No idea, guess only Sony knew.)

    Thanks, updated first post using your format. I think ps4 boxes have a serial number but not sure if it can be related to the firmware.

    I give my contribution :)
    Bought a PS4 D-chassis 1TB in March 2017, Horizon Zero Dawn bundle with 3 month of PS Plus :

    Model (on the label): CUH-2016b b01y
    Code under the model (on the label): P-27452396-K
    Another code (on the label): S01-2419712-C
    Another code (on the white box, not on the label): 4-593-859-01

    Native firmware: 3.55 (and still on 3.55, for my pleasure :D)

    Can someone explain all the 3 codes? :)
    Now I'm looking for a PS4 Pro with a native firmware < 4.07....
    But I can't find any info on the web about how to distinguish a good 3.70 from a bad 4.07... :(
    Moreover, Mediaworld has the Pro on sale at 299€, so I'm very tempted to buy it, hoping for good ...
    In the worst case I could always send the console back, but i prefer to avoid the return...

    That info is only good if you know what firmware it came with.

    As far as anything on a website that isn't a bundel its basically a crap shoot
