A temporary fix available today, Sony says, is to boot in safe mode, though of course that is not an ideal solution. It is unclear how widespread the issue is.
Sony was quick to respond to the issues that cropped up following the release of PS4 update 2.0, telling GameSpot last week: "We are aware of issues reported by some PS4 users following the release of PS4’s latest system software update, v2.00. We are investigating these issues and will provide an update as soon as we have more information."
No timetable other than "soon" was provided regarding the release of PS4 update v2.01.
