Is it okay for me to apply this update without a spoofer? Will it brick my ps3 and prevent me from playing my backup ps3 games?

What number was the first firmware PS4 had before update to 1.61 ? Curiosity.

A 1.51 was the first Ps4 released in November??

Sorry about the double posts. I just found that PS4 first released in the store in Nov 2013 was firmware 1.00 version.
