Sony has released a brand new firmware update today for the PS4. This firmware patches the system software to version 5.55.
Captain we need more stability. The platform can’t take anymore exclusives
The stability... IT'S OVER 9000!
Stabilization Overload! Edit: PS4 might as well be THE most stable piece of hardware every created!
So f**king nerdy... but I love it! LMAO
it's so stable that randomly it decides to crash just to get the feeling of it
At this point, just say updated stability is now live. In fact, if they release a patch without stability, I don't want it. My ps4 is addicted to stability.
Lol and exclusive
You're amazing Lol!
And still it takes seconds to get to the apps then to load,sometime longer than other times,and when you push the ps button to close an app it lags😣
Reinstall your firmware. I don't have these problems.
Doesn't for me
Don't have that problem here either, on a day one base PS4. Any interface actions are practically instant for me. I do really wish Sony would fix the store though. Half the time I open it it just hangs on that God damn blue screen and I have to restart the console to get anything to load. Almost 5 years in to the PS4 life cycle and it still hasn't been fixed. It's so annoying!!
It's the Web browser that causes that stuttering dude, I get it also sometimes.
Don't get me started on the browser... my Pro runs incredibly smooth, unless I'm dumb enough to open the browser. Then I'm hit with the error code, "Not enough system memory", and then upon returning to the dashboard, the console lags like crazy.
Reinstall firmware or just try rebuild database (that fixes most lag problems)
Strange, but I think I may see the problem. Perhaps you’re trying to control your Xbone with your DualShock 4 controller? ;)
YYYIIIEEESSSSSSSSSSSS DADDY SONY SAN STABLE MEH PS4 MOHR
Please be a stability patch... Please be a stability patch...
I am running 5.55 It is Subaru stable.
I got it lol
It would be colins favourite system update ever. All the stability and none of the rubbish. Rest in peace. #theworldisfl4t #555
This just reminds me how badly I want the 22B STi in GT Sport. That car and Tsukuba Circuit go together like cheese & Vegemite.
I'd like the 5 door GRB Spec C in GT Sport
Stability is my spirit animal. Ahhhh *zen*
this probably to stop Ps4 kernel exploit
Windows and Linux disto's have been patched to buggery over the patch few months, and with PS4 running Orbis (a variant of FreeBSD) it does not surprise they are keeping it patched in line with RHEL / CentOS and Windows 10 etc. To not do so would we reckless. I have no idea why they call it a stability update instead of a security patch. LOL
This sounds good, but I have no idea what you’re talking about. lol I feel like Drax, “Nothing goes over my head... my reflexes are too fast.”
Be stable BOY!!
The PS4 and I are in a very stable relationship thanks to all the stability changes and exclusives. Love you babe, i'll be at home by 6.
You mad me chuckle buddy, comment of the yr so far
Will this help my launch PS4 fans from sounding like a jet engine when playing GoW🤔
You can open it manually and disconnect the fan cables. It will be quiet a lot.
Change that 'wind' to 'fire'... 🤔
And finish off my launch PS4? No thanks
You have that too buddy, my ps4 has been sounding loud for like 2yrs but my god gow was like please don't die, please don't die lol.
God of War is the only game that I've heard the fans pumping that loud. Playing Zombie Army Trilogy right now and the fans get semi loud
Use it without worrying about the hardware. That noise is the indicate that fan is working properly. It was made to cooler the hardware, not to be silent... but i would be nice If It was.
I changed my thermal paste over the weekend and now my PS4 is pretty damn quiet in GOW. GOW was the first game where I'd say that I experienced the jet sound that some people claimed. The thermal paste they put on at the factory was mostly on the edges of the main chip, and there was just a tiny bit in a thin layer on the rest of the chip....so little, you could actually read the lettering on the chip. Looked like someone just wiped their finger across it with some liquid grease. I'm surprised my PS4 didn't fail long ago based on how much was on the actual chip. The amount on the edges of the chip was probably 10x what is actually needed. I did it hoping to fix my intermittent black screen problems. It kind of did, but now when they come they come really fast in rapid succession, then goes back to normal without me having to do anything else like I used to. Granted, it's only been a week, so maybe it'll be a problem in the future. If you decide to go that route, or anyone else decides, really learn how to put on thermal paste, or get a friend that is actually competent at building computers to do it for you. It's easy to think that more is better, but it's really not. Plus, some of those ribbon connectors are very fragile. I had to resolder one of them due to my pliers slipping off the connector.
The black screen issue, was happening on some hdr tv's...i had it flash like crazy on the LG downstairs, had to turn hdr off, since putting it upstairs and making a games room, I bought a Panasonic tx panel, and it's been perfect.
I've tried every solution available out there. And every combination of them possible. I'm not going to turn off HDR, as it actually is a great way to see the games. Since it's intermittent, it's more annoying than anything. I will probably buy a new TV at some point, but I'm waiting for when I can justify some of the new panel technologies. I might try redoing the thermal paste again, since it seemed to help, maybe try to make sure I do a better job this time. But will wait a bit to see if the problem relapses first.
Maybe you could try cleaning your fans with compressed air? Worth a try I guess.
Do you remember Delaystation?
No, but one could call it PlayStation For..Exclusives as opposed to Xbox None. Or simply GameStation as opposed to Spec Box.
@ Tyler Delaystation 3 was a big nickname for the PS3 the 1st 3 years after launch. You probably wasn't around back then. Agree if you know bout it, disagree if I'm telling the truth
Love me some stability
wasn't a 5.53 kernel exploit announced a while ago? this is SONY's response.
When the f*ck are we gonna get HEVC support...
Great other usless update that doesn't fits my crashing ps4.
Say what you want but these high demand games be running super stable so...
