Error Code: BOAR
All Platforms
If you are receiving the BOAR error, you may be losing connection to PlayStation Network or Xbox Live services while downloading any patches or attempting to load content. Furthermore, accidentally canceling the download can trigger a BOAR error. If you are afraid the install has halted, please navigate to the Active Downloads/Download Management window on your system to view the progress bar before canceling the download.

Additionally, there are reports of BOAR errors while using a wireless connection. If you are having difficulty obtaining any patches or updates, please attempt a wired connection if possible since losing connection will stop the download without an option to resume. If you get into this state, please delete and restart the download process.

If you are not downloading a patch or update, it is possible you are experiencing a service issue. Service outages can mean limited or no connectivity to PlayStation or Xbox Live services that results in the BOAR error due to the content loading failing.
