Once again, from Sony's Twitter feed on the update:

System software updates coming soon for PS4 (v1.72) and PS3 (v4.60), both will improve system software stability during use of some features

Perform a new installation of the system software:

This procedure is for initializing your PS4 system and performing a new installation of the system software, such as for when you replace the hard disk drive.

  • Be careful when using an update file for reinstallation. All users and all data will be deleted.

The following things are needed to perform the update:

  • PlayStation 4 system
  • Computer connected to the Internet
  • USB storage device, such as a USB flash drive

* There must be 400 MB of free space.

  • On the USB storage device, create folders for saving the update file.
  • Using a computer, create a folder named “PS4″. Inside that folder, create another folder named “UPDATE”.

  • Download the update file, and save it in the “UPDATE” folder you created in step 1.
  • Save the file with the file name “PS4UPDATE.PUP”.
  • Turn off the power of your PS4 system completely.
  • Check that the power indicator is not lit. If the power indicator is lit up in orange, touch the power button on the PS4 system for at least 7 seconds (until the system beeps a second time).
  • Connect the USB storage device that the update file is saved on to your PS4 system, and then touch the power button for at least 7 seconds.
  • The PS4 system starts in safe mode
  • Select [Update System Software].
  • Follow the screens to complete the update.
  • If your PS4 system does not recognize the update file, check that the folder names and file name are correct. Enter the folder names and file name in single-byte characters using uppercase letters.
