How to fix the bug in PlayStation 4 firmware 5.00

Sony has released the long-awaited new update 5.00 for PlayStation 4 today . This new update incorporates many new features such as, for example and among the most outstanding, the possibility of broadcasting content at 1080p and 60 frames per second through  Twitch , as well as updates in the account and family control system to speed up your control.

This revision of the firmware of the console also has many changes in areas such as friends and communities , as well as improvements in notifications and support for 5.1 and 7.1 helmets in the PlayStation VR helmets  , in case we have them, to enjoy Blu-ray movies in cinematic mode .

But unfortunately, firmware updates are not bug-free and there are users who have started reporting bugs in the official forums. Specifically, the error that is appearing most frequently is the E-801809A8 , but also the SU-30746- . It seems that the new firmware 5.00  crashes the Blu-Ray drive  and causes problems with the PS4.

How to fix the bug in PS4 firmware 5.00

Following these steps we have managed to  solve the firmware error 5.00 of a PS4  of the first models (the  CUH-1000 ):

Download PS4 Firmware 5.00 via PC

If you follow this  link  and download the file, you will already have firmware 5.00. Now, you will have to get an empty pendrive and create a folder called »PS4». Inside this folder, another one called »UPDATE». The file that you have downloaded must go inside the folder »UPDATE» with the name »PS4UPDATE.PUP». All in capital letters. Connect this USB to the console.

Go to PS4 safe mode

To enter  PS4 safe mode , with the console off, press and hold the power button for 7-8 seconds until you hear two beeps. At this point, connect the PS4 controller with the USB cable and press the »home» button to access safe mode. Once here, select »Initialize PS4 (reinstall system software).

Rebuild database

If the PS4 system has been fixed with the previous step, this will not be necessary. In our case, we had to rebuild the database, something that takes a while.

If you have experienced the  PS4 firmware error 5.00 , take heart and we hope it will be solved with this method.
