Sony pushed a brand new Firmware revision a couple of hours in the past, and this one has the scene a bit puzzled.
Sure, it’s your typical “improves system efficiency” replace, and is formally labeled as 22.02-06.00.01 on PlayStation’s web site, however PS5FwBot notes that that is labeled as 22.02.06.00.00 in some manifest recordsdata, trying like a reupload of an present firmware, albeit truly a distinct file, so technically an replace with some actual modifications, however with the fallacious model quantity.
Sony simply re-uploaded replace “22.02.06” despite the fact that that replace already exists,
the replace has the identical model quantity as earlier, nevertheless the precise PUP is completely different

Effectively, Sony labels it as 22.02-06.00.01 (and that’s what exhibits up on the console after putting in, so most likely simply a problem with the manifest file) so we’ll go together with it, this can be a minor replace which fixes one thing that has but to be understood.
Change Hacker was truly a PS5 hacker all alongside!
Wait. What? So right here we’re studying that Plutoo is now concerned within the PS5 scene someway (which is admittedly superior), but in addition that he’s capable of decrypt/decompile/disassemble PS5 firmwares???
When you’re asking me, that’s the massive information hidden on this replace right here. PS5 hackers most likely have entry to greater than we think about, and this may very well be nice information for the long run. You don’t wish to replace.
PS5 6.00.01 – Ought to I replace?
As all the time, in case your objective is to jailbreak your console, you must merely not replace. The current historical past of PlayStation hacking tells us so: individuals who hold their console updated don’t get the Jailbreaks.
That is demonstrated with the current PS5 4.03 Kernel hack. Individuals who purchased a console early 2022 (or earlier than that) and stored it at a decrease firmware now have hopes to see important technical breakthroughs on their mannequin.
In a great world, you’d have 2 consoles: one that you simply carry on a low firmware for a Jailbreak (or purchase a low firmware one if you could find one), and one that you simply hold updated to be able to play your present gen video games and entry PlayStation on-line providers. I do know it’s simpler stated than executed, however that’s how issues are.
