While there is no ETA on future PS4 jailbreak exploits yet and current jailbroken PS4 5.05 consoles can run homebrew and play hundreds of PS4 Fake PKG games, those stuck on PS4 4.74 OFW due to a missing or broken Blu-ray drive can now directly update to PS4 5.05 OFW to enjoy all the fun of a 5.05 PS4 jailbroken console following the previously released PS4Brew 4.74 Kernel Exploit! đź’˝ đź“€

:alert: As a precaution, PS4 scene developers strongly advise those who attempt this PS4 BD Driveless Updating 4.74 (No BD) to 5.05 Patch Updater method to backup your HDD as soon as you're on 5.05 Firmware. :alert:

From Logic-Sunrise.com, to quote roughly translated: [PS4] A solution to update from 4.74 to 5.05 with the HS reader!

The developer Zecoaxo informs us that a solution has just come out for those who were stuck in firmware 4.74 following a bluray drive out of order.

A direct update solution to version 5.05 is now available.

To update the console on the firmware 5.05, just run the HEN on the firmware 4.74, inject the payload jkpatchsyscall9.bin, install the package 505.pkg, then install the firmware 5.05 from a USB device connected to the console.

For the moment, no brick is raised, but hey you take the risk of experiencing this kind of problem.

To sum up:
  • Remove any PUP from the / update / directory of your USB key
  • Download the magic_update.7z (11.52 MB) payload jkpatchsyscall9.bin and the 505.pkg or here (Mirror)
  • Put the PS4UPDATE.PUP on the usb0 (the PUP of 5.05)
  • Install the PKG and restart
  • Install syscall9 with payload
  • Launch the HEN after sending it (zecoxao.github.io)
  • Launch the upgrade from firmware 4.74 to 5.05
Before you start, make sure you have all the elements, and understand the approach!

All this has been tested on PlayStation 4 1000/1100 series consoles, but it should work on PlayStation 4 Pro, in fact the payload allows to launch on a console at HS bluray the update.

Zecoaxo recognizes that the most unstable part is the HEN that can crash when launching an application.

Everything is there: discordapp.com

Thanks to the devs who helped in this advance!
PS4 No BD 4.74 to 5.05 Update via tiago92ba
Obscure PS4 fact of the day: If you, by any means, decide to attempt to update or downgrade your ps4 using weird methods, know that orbis_swu will check if the *** version in the backup banks is equal or superior to the one you'll attempt up/downgrading to.

An update is installed via USB, so why it is a problem of the BD drive is damaged?

I never understood this issue, maybe somebody can explain the reason?
(only for my personal interest)

Lucian96,

I bought a PS4 Slim last year on black friday, precisely because of a possible jailbreak past 5.05, never happened, it worked total for 2 hours the most in all this year, I have given up, the console is inside a cabinet wrapped for not collecting dust.

I also own some games, but all need to be updated, and to update need to upgrade to latest fw, I'm starting to think if it is worthwhile halting the console to 5.55
