    So only PS4 Slim Gold Edition shipped with a firmware higher than 4.05 and lower than 4.55? what about the PS4s with “HDR” on their cover?

  2. FFTW says:

    also,according to my research,the following Slim PS4 bundles are 4.55 too:
    -Horizon Zero Dawn, Ratchet and Clank, Driveclub, and Three Months PS Bundle (CUH-2116A) (do note that the same bundle but with (CUH-2108A) is 4.7) (according to gbatemp)
    -Minecraft Bundle (according to wikipedia)

  3. ludakashaka says:

    I believe FF XV bundle should also be a good bet.
    There is also a method on gbatemp that apparently let’s you know if the console is <4.05 by looking at P/N and serial number (but for EU only). – would be good if we can get confirmation that this is real and an update for 4.55.

    You always forget to mention the metal gear solid V bundle.

    Just bought myself a new PS4 Pro with

    CUH-7016B B01Y P-27452400-6 S01-7393654-N

    I can confirm it is on v4.55. This means any 7016B models with serial no. lower than 7393654 are guaranteed to be on 4.55.

      Thanks for sharing pal. Will take a look at my local Media Markt today and hope I’m lucky.

    • Vincent says:

      Hey amigo, I have to thank you one more time. I went to a local Saturn today and found an PS4 pro with a serial number 50 numbers below you. And it has 4.55 on it!

      Best regards,

      where did u buy this?

    • Jamx says:

      Do you/anyone have a picture of what’s the front box would look like for the older batch? I only noticed there are two different front box image; one with 4K HDR at the top right corner and one there is not. I just have to make sure it is the correct box before looking at the serials first.

    • Mohib Qureshi says:

      Do you have any idea about the serial number in India?

      • Tanmay says:

        The one I posted above was bought in India (imported EU unit). No official sold PS4 Pros will have have old version as they were recently resumed selling new stock.

    • Dex says:

      I have store that has p-27452400-6

    Someone in town is selling a BNIB CUH-2115B slim 1TB standalone that he claims to have bought it during the Black Friday sell last Oct. Can anyone with the same model number confirm the fw ver.? TIA!

  8. Vincent says:

    Is the manufacturing date somewhere on a PS4 Pro box? I might go to a Media Markt nearby and take a look.

  9. PS4Finder says:

    So really no different than 4.05, actually I would say the new bundles are even harder to find, Wololo if you read these comments add this to your post, visit in the USA its an inventory checker. Enter your zip code and the item ID/ UPC 55332685 . That is the infinite warfare black bundle there are still some in the wild I have helped countless people in my area find them!

  10. FFTW says:

    also,it is great that the webkit works until 5.05,as we are half way to a jail break there too.

  11. darkzero says:

    Thanks for the heads up as always, is there a way to check the date of the PS4 PRO without open the package? just checking the outside box info? i seen some on local stores but they wont open it unless u buy, if u return u have to go Sony, not to seller-

  12. cavinrocks says:

    I got myself the PS4 1TB Uncharted 4 Limited Bundle in Germany at the “HEM Expert” market, it’s the one with the grey-blue Playstation with Nathan on it. Code CUH-1216B BZ9Y. It has FW 3.11. Pic:

    Got the last two pieces 😀

  13. Asa says:

    Hey, does anyone have a good source for OFW 4.55 ? It seems to be down from Sony’s servers and everything else I found was pretty sketchy.


  14. theHelper says:

  17. Rubel says:

    I want an opinion.. I have found a used ps4 with firmware 4.07. It has some scracthes on top right corner. Probably 35% of the body are scratched. With one controller and 3 cds, those are 1. The last of us 2. Drive Club 3. Far cry 4. The console has no box. The seller want to sell it 210$. Will it worth it if i buy the ps4?

  30. Liv says:

    Hi. PS4 Pro 1TB Black, Europe, model 7016B, serial SO1-7433619-J bought it yesterday 24.03 is on FW 4.55. The HEN exploit works like a charm.

    • Issam says:

      Hi Liv,
      Where you bought it please?
      More informations if possible

      • Liv says:

        I am from Romania, so I ‘ve got it from a Romanian electronics store called Atlex with 380 Euro. I ‘ve plugged into TV in the shop and I’ve checked the fw before buying it. Do not buy it online, they could ship the 7116 version which is above 4.55. Also there is no chance to use the jailbroken console online. Not yet.

        • Issam says:

          Thank you Liv for your answear,I know about the online playing.
          Thank you again.

        • Iulian says:

          Hello Liv. I’m also from Romania. From what Altex shop did you you broth it (city/shop)? Thank you

          • Liv says:

            Hi Iulian. I’be got it from a Altex store in Alba Iulia mall. Be careful thought, I’ve tested another 7016B model and it was on 4.70. To be sure that the console it’s on 4.55, the serial number should be under 74xxxxx. Mine was the last one on 4.55 in Alba Iulia, I’ve checked both sores in the city. Also I’ve spotted last week another 7016B in a Flanco Shop in Alba Iulia.

        • Iulian says:

          Hello Liv. I’m also from Romania. From which Altex shot did you buy it? city/shop name. Thank you.

  31. Liv says:

    Update; today I’ve tested another model of PS4 Pro 7016B, Europe black 1TB, serial SO1-7639693-T, firmware 4.70. Few days ago I’ve got another PS4 on 4.55 serial SO1-7433619-J. Not all 7016 models are on 4.55 as I presumed. I guess that the ones with serial number above S01-76xxxxx are on FW 4.70.

  32. Mike says:

    Bought online PS4 pro today and returning back. Serial is S01-770… firmware 4.70
    DON’T BUY!

  33. Dan says:

    Just bought a ps4 pro from Wal-Mart the other day. Was model CUH-7016b. Thought I scored, unfortunately was on 4.70. Forgot to go by serial number. I returned it.
