Assuming the first is 1.00 of course, update 1 and 2 are included in sys.

From Sony PlayStation 4 hacker SKFU (via skfu.xxx/2013/11/ps4-us-launch-preperation.html) to quote:

1) PS4 Firmware Download

This time, SONY officially releases the firmware 1.5. Now what we know for sure are a few things:

The 0x01000000 in the SLB2 firmware container files is the SLB2 version, not the firmware version.

The prior firmware which was "leaked" is not the same as they released now. The current firmware has the version 01.501.000. The prior one had 2 different XML's files, so it's still unclear if it was 01.000.000, as the US update list said or 01.500.000, as the JP update list said.

Full MD5 list:

01.500.000 / 01.000.000 system: C64D11F839AC8628176941B99FD3670E
01.500.000 / 01.000.000 recovery: 6F4D6AFE98DD7297C70AA4D6E7E5482B

01.501.000 system: DF008B5601F4A214A3CC65030A02AC4A
01.501.000 recovery: CEDADA625478DB608D5878C019454380

Finally, from Sony (via us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps4/pc_update/index.htm and us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps4/index.htm) on How To Update The PS4 Firmware:

These are instructions for the 800+MB file:

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 1 GB 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”.
  • PC 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”.
  • [Register or Login to view links] - Click to start the download.
  • 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.

These are instructions for the 300+MB file:

You can update the PS4 system software by any of the methods described below. To confirm that the update was completed successfully, once the update process is completed, go to the function screen and select Settings (Settings) > [System] > [System Information]. If the version number of the system update file is displayed in the [System Software] field, this means that the update was successful.

  • Update using the Internet (via us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps4/index.htm#update-internet)

Use your PS4 system’s network update feature to update the system.


  • Update using a disc (via us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps4/index.htm#update-disc)

Use an update file contained on a game disc to update the system.

  • Update using a computer (via us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps4/index.htm#update-computer)

This update method can be used if your PS4 system is not connected to the Internet. Download the update file to your computer, and then save it on a USB storage device. Copy the saved file to the system storage of your PS4 system to update the system.

Update using the Internet

The following things are needed to perform the update

  • PlayStation 4 system
  • Internet connection (wired or wireless)
  • Before using the network update feature, you must configure your PS4 system’s network settings. For details, refer to the user’s guide for your PS4 system.

On the function screen, select Settings (Settings) > [System Software Update]. Your system automatically checks if you have the latest version of the system software. If you do not, the latest update file is downloaded to the system. When the download is complete, a notification message is displayed in the upper left corner of the screen. To install it, go to the function screen, select Notification (Notifications) > [Downloads], and then follow the screens to perform the installation.

Update using a disc

The following things are needed to perform the update

  • PlayStation 4 system

I have now mirrored the PS4UPDAT.PUP (308 MB) in the main article. The Recovery file is around 859 MB though so I can't bother mirroring that one myself, but if someone else does I will add the link to the first post.

Update: The Recovery PUP is now also mirrored in the main article thanks to a kind soul who PM'd me a link: [Register or Login to view links]

My understanding of the rules is like this:

If the PS4 is set as the account's "Primary/home PS4" then any user on that PS4 can play content from said account, even if that account is not logged in.

For all other PS4s the account that bought the content must be logged in and used to start the game/content.

Also, 2 PS4s can use an account at one time, the Home PS4 + one other PS4.
