The new PS4 update improves the... guess what?


The next PS4 update is already here.

It’s only been two weeks since the PlayStation 4 received an update to version 10.0, and the next system software update is already live. Unlike the previous patch, the update to issue 10.01 does not contain any innovations, only a well-known note appears in the change notes.

Contents of firmware version 10.01

Almost every PS4 fan should be able to recite the main feature of the latest update while they sleep:

“This system software update improves system performance.”

However, this does not mean the actual performance of the PS4, but the elimination of minor bugs and errors. The PS4 should therefore work more stable in isolated cases and be less prone to software problems. In addition, security holes are regularly closed so that the console cannot be hacked by hackers and used in online mode.

Known issues and how to fix them

As with the previous update, users report that problems with external data carriers have occurred after updating to version 10.01. Apparently, USB HDDs and SSDs are not recognized or are only recognized late.

You should always disconnect the external storage media from the console during the update to avoid possible errors during the update. In most cases, however, it is sufficient to unplug the USB cable from the external storage device after the update, restart the console, and reconnect the storage device.

Error code SU-30746-0

Additionally, error code SU-30746-0 is mentioned. This is a general bug with software updates. In this case, Sony recommends deleting the update file and downloading it again. To do this, find the update notification in your notifications and tap the options button. Then delete the entry.

Now all you have to do is go to your PS4 settings and push the system software update again. If errors reoccur, you can try installing the update via a USB flash drive.

Proceed as follows:

  • Format a USB flash drive on your PC or Mac with FAT32 file system.
  • Create a folder called “PS4” and within that another folder called “UPDATE”.
  • Download the update file “PS4UPDATE.PUP” from Sony’s official help page and copy it to the “UPDATE” folder of the USB flash drive.
  • Connect the USB drive to the PS4.
  • Connect a PS4 controller to the PS4 with a cable and start it in safe mode. To do this, you need to hold down the power button until the PS4 beeps a second time.
  • In the menu that follows, select the third option “Update system software” and then “Update from a USB storage device”.
