Since their previous update last month, today Sony pushed a PS4 System Software / Firmware 4.55 Update (confirmed as non-mandatory at this time by @VultraBabe) live which appears to be another of their infamous stability updates to 'improve the quality of the system performance' which may fix the WiFi issue and patch exploit holes. :eyerolling:

Download: PS4 Firmware 4.55 Update (US) / PS4 Firmware 4.55 Update (EU) / PS4 Firmware 4.55 Update (UK) / PS4 Firmware 4.55 Update (AU/NZ) / PS4 Firmware 4.55 Update (JP)

:alert: We'll update this article once we catch word on whether the JailbreakMe PS4 WebKit Userland Exploit, PS4 4.50 Kernel Read / Write Exploit or the Rumored Brazilian PS4 4.50 GameSharing Method is confirmed to be patched in OFW 4.55... until then, as usual it's recommended not to update your PlayStation 4 console.

Changelog via PS4Firmware.com: Main features in version 4.55 update
  • This system software update improves the quality of the system performance.

Nothing new ? Of course there is ! It is not the usual 4.55 BPF UAF kexploit, but a backport of the 5.05 BPF Double Free kexploit ! Now 4.55-5.07 use same webkit exploit and same kernel exploit !
Cheers to @Centrino, @DarkElementPL, @guido970, @Jeff and @simobuoncuo in the PSXHAX Shoutbox for sharing the news this morning! <3

It isn't mandatory at this time, eventually it will be though... usually in a few days or week tops, you can tell by monitoring the ps4-updatelist.xml, specifically:
Code:
<force_update><system level0_system_version="04.508.000" level1_system_version="04.508.000"/></force_update>
