PS4 System Software Update Version 1.50 Now Available
The easiest way of doing this update is through the internet (on the function screen, select (Settings) > [System Software Update]), but if you don’t have that option, Sony has detailed other methods:
- Use an update file contained on a game disc to update the system. Since Shuhei Yoshida said the update won’t be included on any launch games, this doesn’t look like an option right now.
- 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.
- You’ll need a computer connected to the internet and USB storage device with at least 400MB free space.
Here’s what you do next:
- 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”.
- 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 installation.
- 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.
