PS4 Firmware 9.03 and PS5 Firmware 21.02-04.50.00.05 out. Do not update!
Sony have pushed firmwares 9.03 and 21.02-04.50.00.05 to PS4 and PS5 respectively. This probably goes without saying, but in the light of recent rumors, webkit exploits and proof of PS5 kernel exploits, as much as possible we advise you to not update your console if you’re waiting for a hack. Easier said than done of course, but if you’re hoping for a PS4 or PS5 Jailbreak in the future, that’s what we recommend.
PS4 9.03 and PS5 21.02-04.50.00.05. What’s new?
For both the PS4 and PS5, these updates introduce nothing specific beyond the typical “improves system performance” message, which could be anything from minor specific game fixes, to a major vulnerability being patched under the hood. It could very well be a patch for one of the recent exploits (whether webkit or kernel), which needs to be confirmed by hackers (or the folks brave enough to update and try)
- This system software update improves system performance.
PS4 9.03 and PS5 21.02-04.50.00.05. Should I update?
In the light of recent revelations about PS5 kernel exploits, working webkit exploits, and “something big” coming hopefully by end of the year for the PS4, I would urge anyone interested in hacking their console to at least postpone these updates for a few weeks if they can afford it.
Of course for gamers, giving up on online services for several weeks in December can be problematic. You might want to get two consoles: one for gaming, one for hacking. But with the global shortage of PS5s going on, getting a PS5 is already almost impossible, let alone 2 of them. If that’s a possibility for you though, go for it.
Sounds like good news, they may be fixing something important. Seriously, when updating no longer does anything for users, but only benefits the provider, it’s time to hack
they probably didn’t patch the webkit hack, sony publishes their webkit fork on their site and it seems to not have been updated by them.
Damn it, I didn’t want to update but it updated itself when I put it in rest mode 🙁
I have 2 PS5 and keep them on the latest firmware.
for the future, disable the automatic updates when in rest mode.
What if the latest update removes the option to disable auto-update?
When do you think Sony is gonna pull this move, eh?
It’s hard not to update when the ETA for any PS4 and PS5 new hack is from a month to never…
Kexploit is coming.
Not updating here till the end of the year need a new PS5
Bud inpossible to get one
luckly I dont have ps5 or xsx
I got few days ago my 2nd ps5, exactly for this reason. Now I can keep one safe, on the fabric-default firmware.
I really hope PS5 custom firmware comes out by the end of the year! That would be the best present!!
even if it came out, what would you do with it?, play pirated games?
Getting SSD (internal & external storages) and PFS encryption (PS4/PS5 saves and trophies) keys… First for getting access to data outside environment (e.g in case of console dead), second for a way to resign data to different profiles (in case of future emulation(virtualisation), account ban, account clone outside console environment).
Not every people are stupid…
Oh Im well excitied for this, not much of a game pirate but love tinkering with Linux and homebrew I’ve got my PS4 pro collecting dust for a few months now.
You guys want to hack? How about get some skill and dignity and just play games without exploiting them
Thank God I don’t have dignity and patching Japanese non-released games in other countries to English. I also have no dignity and emulating games which are not available in the store. What a honour-less person I am…
dO Not UpDAte.
