PS4 10.00 and PS5 6.00 Firmware updates released, as always, avoid updating
Sony have released PS4 Firmware 10.00 and PS5 Firmware 6.00 a few hours ago.
PlayStation pushed PS5 Firmware 22.02-06.00.00 (PS5 6.00) and PS4 Firmware 10.00. These are updates with actual new features (most notably gamelist support on PS5!), but as always for people waiting for a Jailbreak on either console, we advise not updating.
PS5 firmware 6.00 & PS4 Firmware 10.00 – What’s new
PS5 – 22.02-06.00.00
- 1440p HDMI Video Output
- Compare 3D Audio and Stereo Audio to choose the best for your system
- Easier Access to In-progress Activities
- New social features (request share screen, Joinable game notification, view new friend’s profile, send stickers and voice message in game base)
PS4 – 10.00
- While using the Internet Browser, you can now select between two types of zoom functions.
- It’s now easier to use the keyboard on your PC or Mac when using PS Remote Play.
With openings through the Blu-Ray exploits earlier this year I would urge anyone interested in hacking their console to at least postpone these updates if they can afford it. Recent jailbreak releases almost always happen for older firmwares, following disclosure to Sony. By upgrading to the latest firmware, you pretty much guarantee you will shoot yourself in the foot for a potential future Jailbreak reveal.
PS4 10.00 and PS5 6.00 – Should I update?
As always, if your goal is to jailbreak your console, you should simply not update. The recent history of PlayStation hacking tells us so: people who keep their console up to date do not get the Jailbreaks.
This is in particularly true for the PS4, a console which has proven countless times to be jailbreakable for people who are patient and stay on a lower firmware. I’d be more on the fence for the PS5, a current-gen console that has been out for several years now, with no Jailbreak released yet, and hackers being pretty pessimistic on the possibilities to actually hack it anytime soon.
In an ideal world, you would have 2 consoles: one that you keep on a low firmware for a Jailbreak (or buy a low firmware one if you can find one), and one that you keep up to date in order to play your current gen games and access PlayStation online services. I know it’s easier said than done, but that’s how things are.
