In the Clean Mode, all the features except Region-Free are totally disabled, and you can’t return to Home Menu if you are running an region-locked game (the Home Menu will no longer accept it), use Power Button if you want to quit the game.
[Feature] Debugger: Debugger feature is normally disabled, you can use NTR CFW Menu to enable it, or put an empty file named ‘debug.flag’ on SD card to enable it automatically.
[Feature] Added support of US/EU/AUS regions: This was already done in the public beta version.

The system update 2.50 for PS4 promises to be one of the most interesting updates released for the Sony console. In addition the Suspend mode allows you to suspend and resume the game exactly the same point will also feature the ability to back up data stored on external hard drives. It is rather interesting because up to this moment the console was incompatible with external hard drives.

PS4 GLITCH LETS YOU TO WATCH VIDEO SERVICES VIA REMOTE PLAY

Do you like remote play, and do wish you could watch videos with it, well now you can. The latest PS4 update (2.50) which added Suspend and Resume seems to have inadvertently opened up the way for a workaround to this “issue.

The reason you might want to do this is with the PSVita is it doesn’t have certain media apps that the PS4 has, such as Amazon Instant Video app. Also the PSTV  doesn’t have a Netflix app. This has been one major cause of grief for the PSTV, but now that could all be behind us.With this glitch, people who want to use apps like Amazon Instant Video on their Vita or Netflix on their PSTV will be able to do so. Of course, you have to own both a PS4 and a PSTV or Vita for this to work.
