    What I’d like to know is if there’s a way to delete already downloaded but not installed update from Debug mode. The update prompt every time I start a game or turn on my console is really annoying.

          • Mark

            To delete the update file in debug go setting-initial-reset personal setting. Dont do the hard reset you will lose everything.

      You can use the FTP server and delete the Update file using your computer

      • None

        The best option is to use the update blocker related to your current firmware. Not only will it delete these files if necessary, it will also prevent updates in the future. It’s important to note however, you should full power off your PS4, and run the blocker first, first before MIRA or HEN. You should be able to find this option related to your current firmware.

    4.74 firmware its last software update,with faulty or changed blue Ray. Imposibile update to 5.05,please rewrite exploit for this firmware. Please back toate live pur consoles

    • None

      More details: power being provided to the drive is enough to allow the update. If you are willing, you can attempt to open your console and correct / establish that connection even with a drive that will not read discs.

      Tem muitas pessoas com esse problema.
      Eu tenho dois consoles na 4.74 com blue ray danificado.
      Querias um xploit para essa versão ou um update modificado para OFW 5.05

    Does this guide change if your PS4 previously downloaded any other system firmware above 5.05 (or 5.07)? (But you are still on 5.05 or below)

    Okay have a quick question i have an old ps4 that the hdmi is broke, no signal i took the mother board out a while back so i can send it in to get fixed am pretty sure its like on 4 something so its good but problem is i took the harddrive out so now if i get it fixed will i have to update to newest firmware or can i do a full install with a old update.

    • timefuffin

      im sure it should work fine, yes you will need the full fat 900mb iamge is required and can be got from as linked on here:

      make sure you pick the right file here: and check that this matches before doing a full reinstall.
      MDH: c2a602174f6b1d8ef599640cd276924a for fullv 5.05 image.

  10. Fabii

    I always get an error when trying to install the update. It loads it from USB and nearly before it reaches 100% I get error SU-30634-6 🙁 Any idea?

  11. 007

    Team Dev
    kindly help Error CE-34706-0 >>>while PKG installation

  12. a

    Error SU-30634-6 on 4.05. I think i installed update blocker some time ago…now, how can i disable update blocker for 4.05 and makes it update to 5.05?

    Any payload to do it on 4.05?


    • a

      Nevermind, already managed to do it. Just by enabling FTP then connect from computer and remove the update appropriate update folders.

    • UndYinG

      Try al azifs dns, it hosts both update blocker and unblocker its fast and easy no need for ftp.

      add both addresses in DNS network settings and then visit any of them via ps4 browser.

      You also have HEN n stuff for all the xploitable FWs hosted already

    “update file is corrupted su-30645-8 error”. Anybody knows how to fix?

  14. Taneem

  15. Sergio
    seems like celeste try to make some for ppl having bray issues

  16. jlo138

    Thanks for the tutorial! I was on 5.01 from DBZ game so going to 5.05 was painless. I used a Micro SD Card into an regular SD adapter to a USB adapter and the update file from the link.

  17. Masoud

    My firmware is 5.53-01, is there any chance to get 5.05? I asked this quastion because u just mentioned thats not possible for 5.55 or higher versions.

    Hi, i’ve problem with update from 4.55 to 5.05.
    I don’t have the BD logic board on my ps4. If i try to update to 5.05 i give this error: E-801809a8. I’ve tried to: reinstall completly with 4.55 full fw, reinstall completly with 5.05 full fw(give E 801809a8). Update from XMB from 4.55 to 5.05(give E 801809a8) update from recovery 4.55 to 5.05 (give E 801809a8).
    Any suggestion for fix them? Because the fw 5.01 has a fix for E 801809a8, if i try to update to 5.01, the exploit on fw 5.01 it works?
    Thanks guys, best regars

    • Gustavo

      Hi, Roberto. My is like yours, stuck on 4.74 because I don’t have its BE logic board. (E-801809A8)
      Did you find anything to jailbreak it?
      Thank you!

    anyone has PUP file with 5.07

    • Albert C

      5.07 was a rare firmware that was never released to the general public. Chances are you will NEVER find that particular PUP.

  20. athy

    @roberto I also try to update my second PS4 from 4.55 to 5.05 with a default BD Drive.
    The only update that don’t make E 801809a8 is 4.73 all the firmware > 4.73 (5.00 beta 3/4/5/6, 5.01, 5.03 and 5.05) detects the faulty disk drive and fail to update in recovery too.
    Maybe a CFW can improve that or spoof the FW in 5.05

    • Roberto

      @athy Thanks, i’ve tried in any method for update, you alredy tried all firmware > 4.73? For example the 5.01 (In theory the 5.01 has a E 801809a8 fix) Thanks, Roberto.

      • athy66

        yes I tried and 5.01 doesn’t have any fix ! Same error.
        On discord and other boards I suggest to find in a decrypted PS4UPDATE.PUP the line where the update try to check the drive is running.
        I think it’s a write on the eprom/rom of the drive cause 5.00 improve dolby fonction of BD Drive.
        But it’s hard to find the ressources and the skills to do that…

  21. Dalogan72

    5.05 thanks so much guys, now I can play all the games without playing these thieves. love it, thanks

  22. Gheorghe Lucian Munteanu

    Please make to work exploit 5.05 to 4.74..imposiblile update to 5.05 with faulty blu Ray drive..

  23. teh_n0ob

    I think the time to update has come, mine is still on version 3.x or lower 😀

    In windows10 this command worked for checking MD5 “CertUtil -hashfile [path to the file] MD5”

    result: MD5 hash of PS4UPDATE.PUP:
    CertUtil: -hashfile command completed successfully.

    I suppose i’m good to go 🙂 thanks wololo!

  24. Smq

    Al azif host is fine for me, but after update my fw ro 5.05 now when I click on section 5.05 in the hist it shows me in the same place on the screen shows me Enable Updates. Its a little big scarry. I think that Hen in that place will be much better.

  25. Tony
