PS4: How to get a PS4 with a 1.76 firmware or lower

#1
How to get a PS4 with a 1.76 firmware or lower

A fully functional PS4 Jailbreak is now available for PS4 running on Firmware 1.76 or lower. The Jailbreak allows to run native code and/or Linux. All files for that exploit have been released here. As such, PS4 models running firmware 1.76 will probably skyrocket in prices very soon, and now might be the last time to get one at a reasonable price.

About PS4 Firmware 1.76

PS4 Firmware 1.76 was released on 8/20/2016(August 20th, 2014). Any bundle released before that date will have a firmware below 1.76.

Some advice when buying for a PS4:
  • It’s easier to ensure you have the right firmware version if get the device new and sealed, not “used”
  • If you get a “used” console, be careful: expect the seller to update before it is shipped. Same with Local stores also. Asking first is always best. Make sure you clarify you want it on that firmware.
  • On Amazon and eBay, description isn't always spot on. Make sure to ask the sellers for details if possible.
    *Amazon has a great return policy. Use it if the PS4 is not the one you expected!

Buying a PS4 new, with guaranteed low firmware

The best way to get yourself a PS4 with low firmware is to buy one of the old bundles, and get it new. The listings below are old bundles shipping with the old PS4 hardware, which are guaranteed to have firmware <= 1.76, if you buy them new.

On eBay, you can look for PS4 Launch Systems in the Game consoles category. Make sure it is a “sealed” unit.
  • Ps4 Glacier white with Destiny Bundle
  • Battlefield 4 Launch Bundle
  • Knack launch Bundle
  • “InFamous Second Son + Killzone Shadow Fall + Knack” Bundle
  • NBA 2K14 Bundle
  • FIFA 2K14 Bundle
  • Dynasty Warriors 7 bundle
  • Dynasty Warriors 8 bundle
  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Bundle
  • Infamous: Second Son launch bundle
  • Watch_Dogs bundle
  • Destiny Bundle (black)
  • DriveClub Bundle (Black)
  • DriveClub Bundle (Glacier white)
  • Call of Duty: Ghost Bundle

Additionally, people are reporting that consoles bundled with The Last of us usually ship with firmware 1.76 or 2.03. Get confirmation from the seller before buying those!
