The PlayStation 4’s 2.0 update wasn’t quite the revelation Sony had hoped. Instead of creating joy, it caused issues for a number of gamers, specifically with its Rest Mode, which ended up making a number of systems inoperable. Sure there were fixes, and users could easily have skipped using rest mode, but that’s beside the point. Thankfully, there’s a new update out now that’s rolling out to fix the problems the last one created.
There’s not much to say about the update, whose patch notes simply list “Stability improvements,” but Sony’s confirmed it’ll fix the Rest Mode woes that have plagued many since the 2.0 update rolled out last month.
PS4 software update 2.01 is rolling out today & will address issues some users have when powering on the system from Rest Mode.

The download isn’t huge, coming in at just 217.2 megabytes. It’ll start automatically if you’ve foolishly and recklessly been using Rest Mode, or can be activated through Settings>System Software Update. While the 2.0 patch initially gave me no issues, Rest Mode stopped working, and I had to reinitialise my system. I use Standby to charge my controllers and make sure my games are all up to date, so I’m rather happy this patch has come sooner rather than later.
