PS4 Firmware 8.52 released
Sony have released firmware update 8.52 for the PS4. This is a minor update, which according to the official changelog, “improves system performance”.

PS4 8.52 Jailbreak – Should I update?
As always, people who have a hackable PS4, or hope for their PS4 to become hackable in the near future, should not update. To be clear, there is no hint at a possible 8.xx Jailbreak at this point (although hackers may have found a lead recently), and it could take months before any Jailbreak is made available for 8.52 owners.
The latest PS4 Jailbreak works on firmware 7.55 and below, so 8.xx owners have no solution available at the moment. Nonetheless, staying on as low a firmware as you possibly can is always the best choice if you’re hoping to hack your PS4 eventually.
