    I'm wanting my save data and profile on my brand new 5.05 PS4 but I don't want to lose its jailbreakability, is there any other way to get my profile and saves to my off-line PS4?

    Im pretty sure it wont let you restore the back up unless you upgrade first. I think it will bring up a message warrning of this before restoring but i wouldn't risk it personally.

    I have a lot of history on that old console, I guess that's the end of an era for all those save files. I personally wouldn't have risked it as having a exploitable PS4 is worth the loss but I'm sentimental, and would have liked to revisit without starting from the beginning.

    I might be wrong but I think you can transfer saves by moving them to a USB but you will need the profile to be on the PS4 to actually use them and I don't think the profile is transferable?

    Even if it's possible, most of your 7.02 saves are probably locked to newer game updates that require higher firmware than 5.05.

    Actually, I don't have any game saves newer then Horizon Zero Dawn as I've had my system put away until a new exploit released. I went ahead and purchase a unopened Star Wars Battlefront bundle which shipped with FW 2.51, the old system is in my kid's hands now, playing Apex, Minecraft & fortnite online, but my profile/saves are still on it. My research into transferring my profile to my offline system hasn't yielded any results.
