Pleas excuse my using the reply function for this post, but it's the only way i can think of for some much needed advice for those running the Beta. . . . Turn off Automatic downloading of updates asap. Turn it off for all downloads, if you want to be extra careful.  . . Many, many people have had Major problems, some very serious from what i've read, after ver 4.74 has been installed automaticaly, instead of Beta 5 ver 6. If this happens you  will not have access to bug reporting, or the Beta software untill the next version arives. . . I hope this post helps save a wholw heap of grief. . . If i've done the wronb thing posting in this manner, i'm sorry. My only intention, is to be as helpful as possable. All my best to everyone

This has never happened before in beta testing of firmware, because the release of a new game has never been so poorly handled before. Whatever mistakes Bungie and PlayStation made in their QA testing of Destiny 2 have no doubt been identified, and steps taken to ensure they don't happen again. As far as anybody being "inconvenienced"  by the automatic firmware download / update feature,  well it's only a game. Hopefully new instructions are being drafted into the beta firmware manual. Turn off auto firmware update - which is a good idea anyway

If you update to 4.74 from 5.00 (beta 5), you will not be able to go back to 5.00 (beta 5).

 

You will however be able to go back to the beta once the version 5.00 (beta 6) is released.

Hi

 

Was running PS4 firmware 5.00 beta 5 until this morning when I was forced to do a update to 4.74.

I now lost the beta 5 option and cannot seem to get it back.  Tried using my redeem code again but it says it was already used.

Ho would I go about getting back to running the beta 5.00 firmware again.

Thanks

Yes it does this. Version 5 is probably just round the corner.

You can rejoin the version 5.00 beta when 5.00 Beta 6 is out.

I was just sent the redeem code a few hours ago, and I redeemed it. But when I logged into WiFi on my PS4, it asked me to download 4.74. So I did that. When I tried to redeem it, I was met with the, you have the current update. Thought I had done something wrong. I tried using my redeem code again too, and got the same message as you. But I'm glad that it wasn't me that had messed something up lol.

Why would 4.74 kick us out in the first place? (Glad I was not alone)!

It doesn't kick you out if you don't update to 4.74, I'm still running 5.00 Beta 5

Couldn't this update have just been included with the full version of 5.0, instead of messing everyone around who is in the beta?

 

I've got to download this update, to then redownload the beta and then download the full version of 5.0. 

 

What idiot thought this through? Better question, what idiot didn't think this through?

I don't think any updates were planned during 5.0 beta. But obviously something serious enough has arisen that they were willing to break the beta to get this update out.

Well I've had an e-mail saying not to install 4.74 if I want to avoid the limitations.

 

So it can't be that important.
