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 PS4-HEN-Update-Blocker-Payload

This Payload contains Debug settings, Update Blocker, and HEN in 1!
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


Special Thanks to

How To Remove Update Blocker On 4.05 To Update To 4.55 (PS4 Jailbreak)
Cheers to @LightningMods for the heads-up in the PSXHAX Shoutbox earlier! :beer:
PS4 HEN Update Blocker Payload with Debug Settings by CelesteBlue.jpg



Hey guys! I'm in 4.55. To run exploit I only need access Update_Blocker or need download some files?

My question is because I don't see anything about where put this files.

@alanmugiwara You setup an internet connection with the following DNS addresses:
Then you go into the PS4 Help/Guide option and it will redirect you to the hack site. From there you click on 4.55, then on Browser unlocker, then once that is done, you click on HEN and once that is successfully completed - you click on update_blocker.


This is awesome! Anyway I didn't tested it by downloading system software update, just in case.

I think I've installed it twice by mistake, does it get disabled if I install the tool more than one time?


@Nino Z No, I didn't update my ps4 firmware. I'm on 4.55 FW right now, I just activated the Update Blocker twice, by mistake.

I noticed that, even if I downloaded that tool twice, it still block updates. I thought that blocking updates twice would have 'disabled' the blocker, but didn't.

if i use the new payload and i go to the rest mode the ps4 freezes when wake up!!!

Vortex wrote as commantar in his code for the ps4-hen-vr code:
  // target_id patches DISABLED as it causes issues with vr starting
  //*(uint16_t *)(kernel_base + 0x1FE59E4) = 0x8101;
  //*(uint16_t *)(kernel_base + 0X1FE5A2C) = 0x8101;
  //*(uint16_t *)(kernel_base + 0x200151C) = 0x8101;
Does he mean this issues??

Ok now i have made tests:

If I comment out the vr spoof offsets
*(uint32_t *)(kernel_base + 0x144B600) = 0x5500001 ;
the PS4 does not reboot from the rest mode!!!

If I comment out the new offsets for TargetID spoofing
*(uint16_t *)(kernel_base + 0x1AF82C4) = 0x8101;
*(uint16_t *)(kernel_base + 0X1AF85A4) = 0x8101;
*(uint16_t *)(kernel_base + 0x1B6D08C) = 0x8101;
the PS4 boots normally from the rest mode!

The problem are the new offsets
Does anyone have the Problem too??
