If the system shows firmware as 9.0 then you should be all good, but I guess you could test it by entering a 9.0 host in the web browser and seeing if it works as expected.

Just run the exploit page of your choosing and load GoldHEN. Hint: if it loads at all you’re exploited. Also it’s not CFW as such, after reboot it’s reverted to stock OFW, it’s more just an enabler so no major differences will be noticed in the firmware itself, but if you used an exploit page which auto loads GoldHEN you would see the GoldHEN options in the settings.

It's not like the ps3, so all systems can be exploited as long as they're on the right firmware or lower. Only firmware matters.

8.55 would need updating to 9.00 anyway so either of those should work.

You wouldn't know when a 9.03 exploit would come out, it might be tomorrow, it might be two years later, so you should just get an exploitable firmware if you want to mess around with one.

i'd love to but it's extremely hard to find and most of the ones on ebay either don't ship to where i live or are unbelievably expensive

I know a seller with a 9.03 and told him not to update it as who knows when that'll become usable for HEN.

Also, it's not a CFW (permanent custom firmware), it's an unlockable official firmware, but guess you know that. Hopefully in 2-3 years we'll have one.

I read there's a better probability for those on 5.05 than 9.00.
