So guys what do you think about this subject ? in terms of stability number of Kps and ...
is 6.72 > 9.00 or 6.72 < 9.00
because, all of us we know that 9.00 is > 7.02|7.51 and 7.55 and in the same time we know that 5.05 > 9.00
so our fw to discuss about is 6.72
thank you all.

If you are not on 5.05 you should update. Stability is much better than every other firmware besides 5.05 and the only reason to stay on 5.05 is that you need to plug and unplug a usb each full reboot which some people would find inconvenient

My 6.72 setup is easier to jailbreak than my 9.00 as of right now. This is how I got my setup working.

https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-how-i-made-a-kernel-panic-free-6-72-setup.588532/

I'm not going to update my 6.72 because I don't want to unplug a USB stick whenever I want to jailbreak it, I don't get KPs and there are some features (like Linux) which don't seem to be working yet; but obviously will. The only inconvenience for me is waiting for backports. It's still really early days, so I'm not discounting 9.00 and I would say it'd be best if most people (especially 6.72+) went to 9.00 because how I got it going took a lot of time and money. I have been really tempted to update to 9.03 on my 9.00 for convenience sake, especially since I have a lot of spare time and want to finish my disc games, but I haven't updated yet.

I think I'd rather just plug in a USB and unplug it than go through all that hassle. You only have to do it once, then rest mode keeps Goldhen alive ahaha

Totally confused about how a lot of people think plugging and unplugging a single USB once per full power down is a huge issue :rofl:

Sleirsgoevy latest 30th october jailbreak you never ever experience a jailbreak failure, but for some unknow reason, the console sometimes gets a little bit unstable after that, but not every time, I guess Sleirsgoevy owing to his very good knowledge of ps4 architecture, if he wishes ofc, he can tweak a little bit his jailbreak and I believe, it will be the same as 5.05, I think is so close but so close to that.

Came here for this

Im stuck on 5.05 as my unit has no blue ray and hence I cant update any further (unless things changed)

Should I bin it and just buy a new one below 9.00 or shall I have hope that games will start getting backported?

you don't have to, with 5.05 and change your internal drive into ssd you can rest assured

it's only matter of time 5.05 backports will come out, but if you eager to update to 9.00 it's up to you later you'll be in a deep regret when fw is up it can't go down, not yet we didn't have downgrader at this moment

Oh yeah, absolutely. I get a kick out of doing stuff like that though.

It's not a huge deal at all but fuck bending down!

Getting old are you ;)

I totally understand what you're saying though! It's good to experiment and if you enjoy seeking better ways of doing things for the challenge then hats off to ya!

Decisions.. decisions..

Like bbqtool, I followed his guide on v6.72 and everything is running pretty darn stable using an ESP8266 board. At this particular moment in time, I'm more than content holding off and waiting a few weeks before making any rash decisions on whether to update or not. It's the Xmas holidays and there's still a whole bunch of games that I want to get round to playing first. The plan is to play those and touch base in a few weeks to hear the thoughts and opinions of everyone who's made the jump. If nothing but good things are being said about the v9.00 jailbreak, I think I'll bite the bullet and make the upgrade.

I don't understand this constant desire for people to stay on 5.05. its such an old firmware and with 9.00 being sooooo simple to JB then its practically a no brainer to update.

Are people really that lazy that they cant be bothered to plug and unplug a usb drive....? It literally takes less than 10 seconds between putting it in and out.

There is even a ESP method now that does the usb bits for you AUTOMAGICALLY.... Sure you need to make a custom adapter right now buuuut I can see them being manufactured and sold soon enough.

Link here.... https://github.com/stooged/PS4-Server-900u

Personally ive been on every JB firmware since 5.05, always updated when a new hack is released and the only time i really regretted it was 7.55 (The webkit was sooooo unstable) 9.00 is great.

IMO just update and stop waiting around for backports etc and just update, pretty much all payloads are available on 9.00 now and the games are coming thick and fast :)

I guess it's just because there is no (easy) way to downgrade and because there is still some hope left to get a real CFW... possible maybe for early OS versions, somehow, sometimes. Idk. ;)

Btw, my Pro is on 6.72 and my slim on 7.55. I was just to lazy to update the slim for now.

    It's an example their workers make more in that state so they can charge higher prices

  • Veho @ Veho:
    That's some 5D math that only makes sense in America.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its different prices per state because state taxes are different, Cali taxes are higher than most, its has nothing to do w min wage.

    It does at the end of the day because they'd demand more and go on strike

    You admit the corporations charge more because people can afford it, not because it really costs more, right?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Yes companies look at average costs of what people can afford to sale products

    And there's no competition?
  • HUNTERFOX @ HUNTERFOX:
    Competition in companies here are like crazy
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Sure but competition does the same if anything at lower rates because they don't have the same resources

    Usually like a 10-20% difference

    Of course they would, both your parties are spineless corporate stooges.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What about companies that are nationwide. Do you think they charge in that states stores based on state economic situation. No they charge the same, but taxes per state make the price difference. (Exception maybe Alaska, Hawaii)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Once you minimize cost of living a $500 gaming console could feel like a $1,000 console to a average home
