How to enter it[edit | edit source]

In a similar fashion to the PlayStation 3, one can enter FSM by patching the Syscon EEPROM (unknown values). There also may be a way to enter FSM using USB. There are documented cases of Sony repairing services accidentally leaving PS4 consoles in FSM.

Features[edit | edit source]

Unknown, supposedly more restricted than the PS3 FSM.
