A few weeks back we saw his PS4 Ghosts RTE Mod Tool, and now @Modded Warfare is back with a guide on how to block PS4 updates on any PlayStation 4 Firmware from his YouTube Channel. :)

Those seeking a similar block list that covers more host names can also check HERE, and to quote from the video's caption: How to Block PS4 Updates On Any Firmware

How to simply block PS4 updates from being downloaded to your PS4 when you launch games or connect to the Internet.

DNS Addresses:
  • fuk01.ps4.update.playstation.net
  • duk01.ps4.update.playstation.net
  • fus01.ps4.update.playstation.net
  • al02.cdn.update.playstation.net
  • a01.cdn.update.playstation.org.edgesuite.net
  • playstation.sony.akadns.net
  • a192.d.akamai.net
If these addresses don't work please follow from 13:28 on the video. If your PlayStation 4 updates are blocked you'll receive a SU-30696-4 PS4 error code.

Download: Wireshark

Additional Sony servers to block are also posted HERE covering more host names and regions, or see here if you're looking to Update to a Specific PS4 Firmware but not Sony's latest PlayStation 4 OFW.

How to manually BLOCK any system firmware update PERMANENTLY on your modded PS4
On PS4, blacklist http://crepo.ww.dl.playstation.net using proxy/DNS. This is the crash reporter.

It depends how many you block, if you just block the xxxxx.ps4.update.playstation.net you should be able to access PS Store fine... some people are more paranoid than others though. :cautious:

LOL I never played online with my PS3 either. I just do campaigns and relax without anyone trying to join my game. It's my time, not theirs.

Just tried it. Doesn't work on 3.55 fw. The DNS Addresses are working so no messages appear to update the console but it doesn't sign in to psn. Error message SU-30709-9
