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!

  • 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

PS4 HEN Update Blocker Payload with Debug Settings by CelesteBlue.jpg



When Facing Your Enemies Always Have A Good Ass
And how do we check whether it is done correctly? Mine says the update is downloaded and ready to be installed after using the update blocker?


When Facing Your Enemies Always Have A Good Ass
I'm sorry to say this but the 5.05 PS4 update is still there and I recently pressed to install it to see whether I would be able to or not and the result was that I was able to install it if I proceeded to continue with it.

My PS4 had downloaded the PUP before running the Update Blocker V2 - does that have to say anything?


Anyone here experiencing their console crashing (hangs when shutdown, cannot open settings etc.) when using this hack via internet explorer?

Console also won't open when put in Rest Mode when using this. Anyone have same issues with me? Did I miss something? TIA


so my ps4 closes down after i run this and aziz exploits and then launch a game. can any body help me out what's going on ?

so i played/checked multiple game now and it was working fine... just don't run this and the exploit together seems to shut the console down or randomly freeze at setting. Also as most people have already commented this creates a PS4UPDATE.PUP directory in update folder on ps4 which should block downloading the update . if you are paranoid use dns method or once in a while run this again.the router method was not working for me

Why not simply put the Sony Server URL on Blacklist of your Router?
