Since the release of PS4 HEN (which can be used with Android and iOS) the 4.05 PlayStation 4 scene has been on fire while PS4 developer @CelesteBlue worked on a PS4 System Update Blocker with testing and hosting done by @LightningMods followed by V2 and V3, V3.1, V3.2, PS4 4.55 Update Blocker HEN and PS4 4.55 Update Blocker HEN V3! :fire:

To recap briefly, we've seen guides on how to block PS4 updates, covered some reasons why you may want to block them, reported on Sony blocking some PS4 Playground sites in PS4 Web browsers, and most recently added a tutorial on how to remove the downloaded PS4 Update PUP from your system if it hasn't been installed yet. :sneaky:

Download: HEN + Blocker.bin (13.8 KB) / BlockerV2.bin (14.3 KB) / GIT / UpdateBlockerFTP.bin (22.1 KB - V3) / PS4 4.55 Update Blocker FTP GIT / Blockerv3.1.bin (22.0 KB) / Blockerv3.1woSpoofer.bin (22.1 KB) / BlockerV3.2.bin (22.1 KB) / UpdateBlocker+HEN+Spoofer.bin (1.00 MB) / GIT

To quote from the included README.md: PS4-HEN-Update-Blocker-Payload

This Payload contains Debug settings, Update Blocker, and HEN in 1!
  • UPDATED
only 14kb now
  • More Info
The update blocker creates a folder in /update and unlinks the folder DO NOT REMOVE IT You WILL still get the notification of a update let the update download to %100 then you will be greeted with a "Cannot download" message and you cannot install it either so now you cannot update it accidentally...

You can use my website to inject it without injecting it via PC

So should we just inject this over the old one, or do we need to uninstall the old one first?

So I wrote it wrong last time - it was PS4UPDATE.PUP
In any case, I went ahead and deleted it. I suspect that this folder is where the new firmware would be placed once it's installed or something. So now I only have the PS4UPDATE.net.temp folder and a few filed in the update folder.

my custom local host :
PS4 Exploit Host Custom.rar (6.12 MB)

u can make one too if u want... just arrange it however u want.
al azif haven't uploaded vortex's latest work and i thought i'd make it simpler. it's only for 4.05/4.55, i removed everything else.

PS :
i haven't included pkg2usb, because in my opinion it's not very user friendly atm. waiting for new versions.

@GameDemon Nope, but why would you want to go online anyway? You are not on the latest firmware, so you won't have PSN access. You can't do anything with internet on that firmware.
