    So I found out this morning about the ps4 Jailbreak. Now before ai get started there is one thing I would like to know. I intend to setup the jailbreak on another harddrive. I understand that the jailbreak is installed to the ps4 by firmware. What I want to know is, if I ever want to return to original firmware to remove the Jailbreak and be on the latest firmware will I be able to put in my cirrent harddrive ( the one containing my psn profile and games and stuff) and update without a problem?

    I am simply unsure if inserting a ps4 harddrive that was last used on an older system firmware will cause any problems. I don't want to get that far one day and then be told I must format the drive and lose my saves, games and stuff.

    It would make you format the drive to the current firmware.

    If you remove the hard drive and decide to put it in a different console, it'll force you to format it completely before launching the playstation.
