WARNING THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING BUT WILL BE ABLE TO GET EVERYTHING BACK THROUGH PS4 CLOUD FOR YOUR PSN ACCOUNT.

Whats the purpose of this ?

Well the purpose of this is to get your PS4 back to normal. This happens to the PS4 if you were playing the PS4 and it was disconnected from the all or there was a power outage.

What I need?

well you are going to need a computer with internet, a USB with 900MB of free storage for the ps4 update and your cable for the PS4 controller.

STEPS:

1. go to playstation.com
2. go to support on the top right and click on software update and click on the ps4
3. go all the way down to "Perform a New Installation of the System Software"
4. click the tag on that section to download
5. make sure you create 2 folders and name them "UPDATE" and the other one "PS4"
6. drag the download to the "UPDATE" folder and drag the update folder to the "PS4" folder
7. import that folder to the usb
8. make sure you eject the USB correctly
9. go to the Playstation 4 console and plug in the USB
10. connected playstation controller via USB cable to playstation 4
11. turn on ps4 controller
12. follow the steps and click yes to initialize ps4
13. set up ps4 as brand new
14. once like new sign in to your account
15. Download all previous downloads from account cloud
16. go to settings
17. go to "Applications saved data management"
18. go to saved data in online storage
19. put in game that you want to download content for first and click the game to download all content again and repeat for each game

Brian Daly
Thanks I found your video very helpful and alot easier way to the rest of the people
IMT Mearsal
if your ps4 keep saying cant find update then make sure the update file's name is correct sometimes if you downloaded multiple times it causes the pc to name is (1)(2)(3) and thats what messes it up =detailed explanation. if you download the file multiple times it renames the file to a number format. it should look like this: filename.exe but after multiple downloads you get files like this. filename(1).exe ,filename(2).exe . just delete the (#) part of the file name and then run the ps4 as the video says. glad i could help so many people <3. if you like stupid gaming videos or want to help a lonely tuber out come sub to me =D ill appreciated any help! ty

princeofpersia
My ps4 switched off due to power outage while saving in horizon... If I do this will my save files be intact? (I don't have a psn subscription)
HypeGaming
instead of doing this whole process just turn off your PlayStation then press the PlayStation button on the console and dont let go of the button until you hear a second beep then it's going to send you to a screen and what you want to do is click on number 6 and that's going to restart your PlayStation like if you first got it but I mean it's the same thing as doing it with a USB and much easier just listen to what he said at the end so you know how to get all your stuff back. (its been almost like 2 years and its awesome seing how much people ive helped, but if you guys want to see a video on how to do this search up "how to factory reset youre ps4" and its a video by a guy called Dimond King.)
