PS4 2.01 Firmware Rolling Out to Address Rest Mode Issues

Posted by at 12:12 pm on November 5, 2014


PlayStation Europe announced a new PS4 firmware update is “rolling out today,” designed to fix at least one of a range of issues that cropped up following the 2.00 patch. The company’s Twitter account said the 2.01 update “addresses issues some users have encountered when powering on the system from Rest Mode.”

We’ve successfully downloaded and installed the 2.01 firmware through PSN Europe – the update notes didn’t offer any further clarification on the patch beyond addressing stability issues. Typically Sony’s firmware rolls out worldwide at the same time, and a tweet from the main PlayStation account indicates 2.01 should be available stateside “soon” if not already.

While Sony’s big 2.00 update added new features to the PS4 including Share Play, it brought with it a variety of issues for some users, including the Rest Mode one as the comments here attest to. Users found they couldn’t power the PS4 on from the standby mode. According to Kotaku, holding the power button down until the console turned off was one way of getting out of the Rest Mode rut.
