It figures Sony wouldn't let the holidays roll by without giving the PlayStation 4 scene a present worthy of regifting, and today following their previous PS4 OFW update comes PS4 System Software / Firmware 7.01 which is now live and includes even more system performance typically in the form of security fixes! 🔥

:alert: As always DON'T UPDATE if you wish to use PS4 game backups and homebrew apps when a new jailbreak exploit arrives, and we'll add any related Tweets below as PlayStation 4 scene developers have a chance to examine it.

Now this is like Christmas without Santa and Snow. Sony released the tree. Hackers are not releasing Santa and the Snow. wait or not but one thing i do know is that not releasing a jb is dividing the dedicated homebrew community which was here since the days of PS1.

Mark my words still it will all be kids asking how to install this jb when it gets released instead of interesting discussions with amazing creators.
Homebrew community is broken.

There was a app to detect earthquake on PS3. that scene was amazing despite all the jailbreak dongles and ode's.

damiano, most people complain don't have any patience. They don't know how to be patient at all. Ignored them.

Developer team will release it when they think its right time.. They have the reason. Nobody knows. Silly people who complain.

The OS is a little smoother on 7.01 the stutter I had when trying to open YouTube is gone. I have two PS4s one is on 5.05 so no big deal for me.
