Updating sony firmware
And maybe that copy won’t then have whatever software issue is permanently burned into the copy on my internal flash memory?Finding a copy of 6.50 required a little leg work, as Sony doesn’t keep a database of old OS versions.Surely Sony would fix this through their warranty system? It turns out they’ve given themselves a lot of outs so they don’t have to, if they don’t want to. Remember the beginning of the story where I recycled my receipt? Sony requires a receipt in order to provide warranty service.when my launch Xbox One was purchased and had no issue providing me service thanks to their network infrastructure, Sony has given themselves an out if you don’t still have your original receipt.In the case of Microsoft’s Xbox One, the flash memory functions similarly to a Windows recovery partition, holding a backup copy of the OS in case you need to reformat or reinstall.In extreme cases, you can use an official tool to install a fresh copy from a USB stick instead. Their safe mode menu allows you to install system updates from the Internet, from a USB stick, or from disc, and also allows for a full reinstall.But, thanks to some kind of software issue and the magic of whatever SU-30641-4 is, the system is not going to it.
A component will die and it’s off for warranty repair. But what if you’re a PS4 owner and your system software gets corrupted in a way that doesn’t kill your hardware outright, but instead makes it into a ticking time bomb of eventual system failure? And thanks to a weird arcane flaw in Sony’s software design, I went through just that scenario.
WITHOUT CONNECTING THE CAMERA, Click on Update Setting Tool. The update process takes about fifteen minutes to complete. When the following screen is displayed, click â€œFinishâ€.

At the Password prompt screen, enter the Name and Password for the administrative account, and then click OK. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable.
This makes At this point, I realize I’m officially stuck with a PS4 Pro that won’t ever update or reinstall any other version of the system software except the one it already has, in spite of the fact that it’s still totally working on the hardware side.
The flash memory itself is completely functional, because I was able to get through the standard hard drive reformat process twice without issue.
