:alert: Those not registered in Sony's PlayStation Preview Program will not be able to install Beta PUPs as they require a valid PS4 license for installation, and as DEFAULTDNB confirmed be aware that you can only downgrade to the current highest released OFW regardless of what Firmware you updated from. :alert:

  • The following changes have been made to Party and Messages
    • When starting a party, you can now choose to create a new group or select an existing group. When you create a new group, it’ll be saved even after the party has ended. You can start a new party with the same members by selecting the group that you previously created.

Its seems like a big update, but the real question: is Sony trying to move focus to the PS5 or it's just a normal update bundled with some new features ??
