    Uncharted Nathan Drake Collection Bundle comes with below 4.05

    • spok

      ok but let us know if there is also one with PS4 Pro so we can use the best gaming experience in case if there is hack also for FW 4.5+ 🙂

  2. TheOne

    So glad I was patient and already have a 4.00 PS4, can’t wait!

  3. TheZpeepees

    Does this mean we will be able to steal and download PS4 games later like we did with the PS3? This is such great news and pirating is so awesome!!

    • Yep

      Yes, this means you can “steal” PS4 games. Just make sure you don’t steal all of them. Leave some for the rest of us please.

      It’s people like you why EA and other devs drop single player games in favor of multiplayer and loot boxes nonsense. Thanks a lot.

    Call of Duty Infinite Warfare (Walmart exclusive Glacier White) came with 4.06

    • andoryuu3

      Also, forgot to mention this is a SLIM PS4 bundle. The black version may come with FW lower than 4.06 due to the white version being released later than the black.

      • andoryuu3

        CONFIRMED: PS4 Slim Call of Duty Infinite Warfare bundle (standard black edition) comes with 4.01.

        I know this because I just bought one from Target on clearance today for $209.

          Physical store? Never seen the online store drop so low lately

          That said I think I’ll wait for Kohl’s black friday offer anyway

    im on 4.50 f***

    • Steliosaa

      Same for me. Damn “Injustice 2” 😛 Qwertyoruiop has kernel on 5.00 (as well as others) and CT has for 4.55 so dont start crying 🙂

  6. ludakashaka

    Would this
    Uncharted limited edition also have <4.05?
    That's the one I seem to find in Europe – it has different box and is 1TB. It says CUH-1216A.

    What about Final Fantasy 15? It was released 29 Nov 16. And 4.06 was released on 17 Nov. Surely they couldn't have managed to update them in less than 2 weeks?

    I have 100 launch PS4 pro’s in a storage locker I’m about to cake off

  8. Darko

    I listened to articles here, got one ps4 on 4.06 a long time ago and now I’m sc***.

    • wololo

      You’ll have to wait more than those on 4.05, but potentially less than those on 5.00. We’re making suggestions here based on the information available to us at the time of writing. If you could point me to the article that suggested you’d be fine by buying 4.06 rather than 4.05, I’d love to see it 🙂

      • f4

        I suppose if you don’t read carefully, you might have been led astray two articles ago. It says the webkit exploit was ported to 4.06 and 4.07, but I’m guessing there’s no kernel exploit to go with it?

    • TheOne

      The articles here all clearly stated to stay on 4.05 or below, next time read carefully and listen to wololo and you wouldn’t be in the mess you’re in.

      • Darko

        If you read comments you wouldn’t post trash. It was reported a long time ago that 4.06 was fine, turns out it osn’t.

        • wololo

          Hi Darko. 4.06 was initially reported to be hackable by Fail0verflow, but the error was corrected within 12h of the article’s publication. I doubt anyone jumped the gun and bought a 4.06 in that time interval?

          • Milagro

            I did. And I also seem to remember that 4.06 was mentioned as hackable as soon as it arrived even with no hack releases announced.

        • TheOne

          If you had a brain you’d know how to read and wouldn’t make yourself look like a fool here. Seeing as you’re ignorant, you deserve that 4.06 PS4. Stay in school kid, no hacks for you until you learn to read.

    • TheZmoron

      You stupid idiot *** you are the only one that went to 4.06. Learn to read dummy no one said to go to 4.06 you big cry baby pee pee face.


      hahahah get rekt kid, learn to read next time

    • DarkoMoron

      Darko, we all have the right firmware you just don’t know how to read you dope. Did you see anyone else update to 4.06? Nope, just you, hahahahaha

    • Alex19

      No you didn’t idiot, cause the articles never said 4.06 was safe. You’re sc*** cause of your idiocy, not the articles.

  9. P3T3

    Add watchdogs 2 and lego Star Wars packs for slim! Will have 3.55

  10. cboushell

    In my experience pawn shops are a great place to check for things like this. They usually have no idea why someone is looking for such an item and have consoles that have been sitting around for a good while.

  11. noman

    i have 3 3.10 ps4’s anyone needs one let me know $450.00

  12. noman

    The Best place to get from Go to pawn shop they will let Look at the FW before you buy it good luck hunting…

  13. Trapstar30

    I have two ps4 on 1.76 I got one on day one when ps4 came out and then I grab second one (the last of us) bundle so I will wait some more until jailbreak come out I’m hyped.

    Hi. One question
    Can all current games be played on fw 4.05??

  15. Lol

    Buy A PC and stop waiting selfish fake developper.Ps4 scene is lame

  16. Goku

    I’m on 4.05 with a pending 4.50 in downloads. Is there hope for me?

  17. kevin

    the real question is, is it worth it?

  18. Tenka

    Damn…the prices at the stores near my place have already shot up to $700…guess they read wololo

  19. Wanderson Boy Rodrigues

    I’v Found A Lot of PS4 on these specs, the question is… Worth Buy a Os4 Pro ? or Ps4 Slim.. I’v Found the 500gb Uncharted 4 Bundle… and 500 gb MW3 Bundle, but for 100$ more the PS4 Pro with 1 TB hd. No one mentioned the PSpro on this topic, SO I’v became a bit confused, PS4 PRO will get jailbreaked ?

  20. Me

    Which Fw is on the single PS4 pro, anybody knows?

    • Tristanbr

      Same for me, I’m in the way to buy it, But Stuck in the Question, CUH-2014A – Uncharted 4 Slim Bundle 500 Gb, or CUH-7015 1 TB PS4 pro. Any of these, suposed to be on lowerr than 4.05, and I will verify on the fly.

      Can the Mod of this site change my previous post name, to the one in this post ? and delete this line.

  21. omar rana

    This release of jailbreak exactly when xbox one x is being released. Is this intentionally by sony to lower sales for xbox?

  22. DarkElementPL

    Bought an PS4 CUH-2116A Minecraft Bundle today for 290 euro. Came on firmware 4.55. Already added it to wiki.

  23. Bubi

    If you are on fw below 4.05 can you update on 4.05 or is it like if you update you can only update on the latest one?
