    From what i see on the boards it seems rev12 is more trouble than its worth

    What are the real benefits?

    I've been thinking the same thing... one of the benefits seems obvious: Increased Reliability

    i updated and i don't see any difference.. i don't play any games that use usb port so..
    my games used to work fine with cios 10 and they still do work fine with cios 12, so i don't see or feel any difference at all.

    Wait for rev13. It might fix some problems rev12 brought lately.

    the only compelling argument i can find is that this one is 2 better than the first!

    other than that people are confused because only 1 usb port works for hdds now which is dumb

    no man rev 1000 will bring hd graphics and a peripheral that rather than achievements gives high fives!

    LOL what a discussion....

    well, as for me I don't face any problems with rev12.
    The fact that cios comes with access for HDD and accsesoires port.
    so this cios also fixes the mic/keyboard in animal crossing.
    Also it got fixes in the EHCI driver.

    I would wish for more compatibility... Make "old" games like mk, red steel work correctly...

    i would say use the newest release...
    But, decide yourself.

    Does this really make the games load slower? And do the 249 games (Red Steel, CoD 3, etc) work with this via USB?

    no, the "249 games" won't work via USB.

    if this is then their really is no reason to update unless you have one of the lu64+ consoles right?

    but no real benefit though right outside of the lu64+ right
