In PS4 Scene news today proceeding the previous Beta update and latest DUPLEX PS4 FPKGs, registered testers can now try out PS4 Firmware / System Software 8.50 Beta to examine for any bugs while PS4 8.03 Firmware is still the current public PlayStation 4 System Software available. 🙃

Download: PS4UPDATE.PUP (459 MB) via 0x199 / (Decrypted) (459.3 MB - includes PS4UPDATE1.PUP.dec and PS4UPDATE2.PUP.dec) via notzecoxao / PS4UPDATE.PUP (459 MB - BETA 3) via SamettoChan

: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 it's hardcoded for only downgrading to the current highest released OFW regardless of what PS4 Firmware you updated from.

Below are the PS4 8.50 Beta Firmware revision changes thus far from, to quote:
