Following the PS4 Firmware Checker and PS5LinkGenerator Application, those seeking to download the latest PS4 Firmware (OFW) Update or Recovery / Reinstallation file complete with changelog details may want to check out the PS4 Firmware Downloader application from SmallPP420 (o_O how was this missed on 4/20 :LOL:).

According to the developer it's theoretically a multiplatform application: supporting Windows, Linux and MacOS... although someone with a Mac would need to build and test it using the source code to confirm (Update: confirmed working by rakanbakir) this theory. 🍎

:idea: For those new to the PS4Scene, the PlayStation Updater XML Files can also be used to download the latest revision from a PC alongside the current PS4 System Software Update Features... however, while PS4 Beta PUPs often surface from scene testers including @Sametto Chan we've yet to see the PS4 Beta Updater XML File link surface publicly. :confused:

:alert: As always, DON'T UPDATE if you wish to use PS4 Game Backup PKGs via PS4 Torrents and Homebrew Apps whenever a new PS4 Jailbreak Exploit arrives.
