Downgrade Ps4 Firmware

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

If I format the HDD inside the PS4 on a PC and try to reinstall the software to 5.05 can I? Or are Sony assholes and won't let you? I wanna jailbreak the console, if you're wondering.

No, that won't downgrade the firmware as some of the firmware has already been written to the internal NAND-flash. Sony doesn't want people downgrading the consoles exactly because that'd make it easier to jailbreak them.

no, its locked.

Sony thought about that.

 

So you need to get an older PS4 (PRO) with hackable firmware.
