I hope this fixes error np-38564-6 and np-31950-8. There are forums on here about these codes and they're driving many of us crazy.

Most likely not, but it's always a possibility. That is why it's a very good idea to read the agreement for the beta before accepting. If you accept, SIEA and Sony will owe you nothing should your console suffer any issue.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

[INFO] PS4 Firmware Beta Phase

[ Edited ]

It’s nearly time for another major system software update for PS4, and we could use your help beta-testing before it launches. Starting today, you can sign up for a chance to be a beta tester and get an advance look at some of the improvements and new features coming to PS4.

 

You can register to be a beta tester anytime between today and the start of the beta in early Februa....

 

Users must be 18 years or older. Once the beta starts, we’ll close registration.

 

 

Beta testers for our last system software update, 4.00, got to see things like our overall PS4 UI refresh, Folders, the revised Quick Menu, and much more before launch.

 

If you’re part of the program, you’ll receive an email with instructions on downloading the beta version of the next system software. In order to sign up, you’ll need a PS4 with an internet connection, and access to a Master Account.

 

And remember — you can roll back to the previous system software at any time.

 

We’ll be back soon with an update on the features you can expect in the beta.

 

Many thanks to everyone signing up — especially our returning beta testers! You’re helping us make the system software update even better.

Was in the last beta, although other then one instance of my console freezing I never had a issue, although to be safe it doesn't hurt to backup your data.

Do wish they would give a small hint of things to come before putting up beta registrations, something like a "Be among the first to try a much requested feature" or something like that.

Just back up your data.  If there are any issues, you just roll back to the current version of the firmware (you'll have a direct link to do so in the settings/update system menu).  I did the 3.0 beta and never had any issues.  I passed on the 3.5 and 4.0 betas, as I didn't have the time or inclination to install it.  I'll probably do the 4.5 beta, depending on what new features they are adding.  Usually, it is something substantial if there is a beta involved.
