First, try restarting your PS4 by selecting the 'Restart PS4' option in Safe Mode. If that doesn't work, connect a DualShock 4 controller via USB and try option 3, 'Update System Software'. This can solve many issues!

Hot take: Sometimes it's just faster to initialize your PS4 (Option 6 in Safe Mode), but remember this will erase all data. Backup first if you can!

If restarting didn't work, try the 'Rebuild Database' option. This can fix corrupted data causing the Safe Mode loop.
