    Guys, any way how to delete update question in PS4? I am on 3.55 and I want to stay but PS4 downloaded 4.05 and everytime I want to play a game it asks to update.
    Thanks in advance

      it will do this all the time, there is no way to stop the message coming up. To delete the update go to your downlaods go to the update file press the Options button on your DS4 and press delete.

      There is not. Just be smart and don’t update.

    • Albert Covington

      Actually, strike that. I’ve just seen that one update now allows this. Just go into System settings and go into Automatic Downloads and turn the system software update Off.

    But this is valid for ps4 pro?

  14. Captain Jack

    Update file is on softpedia. Google is your friend. Wont let me post the link. Marek256 you need to format the hard drive but will lose everything. Antonio if the PS4 pro firmware is 4.01 or less then yes

    Guess staying on 3.55 was the best decision i’ve made. Let’s see how this drama plays out. I remember everyone was saying the Vita was never going to be hacked too lol and now they are even making a CFW.

  21. Yuuki

    my only problem will be ff15 which will require the newest fw… mostlikely….

    I can confirm that the PS4 Pro is on 3.70 and I can also confirm that THIS does NOT work in trying to update to 4.01.
