PS4 firmware 5.55 released
Sony released PS4 firmware 5.55 yesterday.
The official changelog states that “this system software update improves system performance.”. This could be anything, including patches for undisclosed exploits on the console. As always, if you intend to hack your console, we advise not to update unless you really have to. Better yet, if you can afford it, the easiest way to get the best of both worlds is to have two PS4s: one for gaming, another one for hacking.
This firmware release happens in the context of an upcoming PS4 Jailbreak for firmware 5.05. Those of you who have patiently been waiting on a lower firmware should be able to hack their consoles very soon now. I’ve personally splurged with a PS4 Pro God of War limited edition, it came with firmware 4.73, and will be updated to 5.05 once the hack is released.
