DISCLAIMER:I do not assume any responsibility in carrying out this guide which is made with the sole purpose of informing users.

Modifying this time the PS4 is simpler than it was on PS3 as it will be enough to unlock the debug mode and the package installer to be able to install the games inPKGformat.These files (which are nothing more than game backups) are easily found by searching the net.

Currently it is possible to modify firmware 4.05 – 4.55 – 5.05.

For the other firmware including the last5.55have already been “punctured” but the developers have not yet released anything stable and easy to install, check back this article to stay updated.

MODIFICATION GUIDE 1.01 / 1.76 / 4.05 / 4.55 / 5.05

I recommend updating the firmware to the latest version that can be modified, ie 5.05, to install this UPDATE you will have to:

  1. Download the update fromthis linkor fromthis one.
  2. Create on the USB a folder calledPS4inside the PS4 folder create anUPDATEcall and inside put the update file calledPS4UPDATE.PUP
  3. Now plug the USB into the PS4 port and update the firmware

It is important to disable automatic updates by going to the PS4 download settings.


Eventually you will have a memory error, it is normal not to worry.

  1. Go to the PS4 settings and click onnetwork / configure internet connection / wifi / custom andput everything in automatic except the DNSchoose manual and enter:
    DNS 1:
    DNS 2:
    Now save these connection settings.
  2. Go back to the settings and click on the firstuser guideoptionand again on the user guide
  3. A web page will open, click on your firmware (example5.05)and then click onaim.After a few seconds you will have a message confirming the change … DONE!

To install games after modifying your Playstation 4 you will need:

  1. Download or have games / backups in PKG format
  2. A stick formatted in NTFS (so as to support files larger than 4GB) and copy the game over it.
  3. Turn on the PS4, carry out the steps to unlock the debug settings (being a temporary mod if you turn off the PS4 the menu disappears, but if you set the DNS as in the first method you just go to the user manual without having to re-enter the DNS) and connect the USB to the PS4.
  4. Go tosettings / debug settings / packeg installerand click on the game you want to install.
  5. At the end of the installation the game will appear in the main menu of the playstation.

WARNING:Some games after installing them may require you to update the firmware, click update later and they will start normally.

In this way you can also install updates for games and DLCs that you always find online in PKG format.
