    Don’t see what the problem is, I updated my console last night and been playing games on it on and off all day without any issues whatsoever.

    Dont forget certain Sony softwares require 5.05 to run properly. These have been appearing on various warez sites as a result of the 5.05 exploit. Warez dumped with 4.05 and 4.55 work on 5.05. Just FYI…

      May sound a little like an obvious thing, but thanks for clarifying the 5.05 thing, as I have only just got on board with 5.05 I assumed this was the case… but nowhere has anyone actually clarified this yet!

    5.05 is more stable than 4.55 and the succes rate is higher.

    Same as I… got 2 ps4, 4.55 and 5.05. Wondering how fast things will be published for 5.05.

    Hmm, no mention whatsoever about the ability to play higher firmware games…

    In my opinion 4.55 is where its at for stability in the 3 months I have had my 4.55 fat hacked I have had 0 kernel panics compared to 4.05 and 5.05 which I would get quite a few kp’s . Of course 5.05 has substantially less kp’s compared to 4.05, either way once persistence is achieved the kp’s should be a part of history but only time will tell.

    5.05 is a bit less stable on the exploit process. Although I’ve always disliked XVortex’ HEN option because it causes REST mode to crash. The original HEN payload didn’t though, where’s @m0rph3us1987 when you need him? :p

    3. Then again, how exciting is 4.55?
    yeah not exciting at all… my ps4 is on old FW not shore what exactly maybe 4.05 and it’s only a decor right now if not for that glassy face it would have been a dust magnet otherwise
