Looking to buy a Ps4?

My choice is between 1 on 4.06 and the other on 6.20.

Only really a £20 difference. I know 5.05 has has been the golden firmware for modding with the realease of 9.00 cfw things have really taken of.

So what would your opinions be go for 5.05 or 9.00?
Thanks

I recently bought a PS4 Pro running Fw 5.01. I chose to update to Fw 9.00 for jailbreaking. It has been working great. The best part is I don't need to backport (fix) the games.

Either one is fine, because now 6.72 has a perfect exploit that works every time, making 5.05 obsolete. So 6.72 is just as good as 5.05. So you could choose between 6.72 or 9.0. I would just choose 9.0 to not have to worry about backports though.

There are some rumors that lower firmwares might get a persistent hack though would be the only reason to stay on a low firmware but nothing has been proven. I could say it's just a rumor then you update to 9.0 and then it really happens and it'd be too late so you'd have to make that decision yourself. But it's not like the exploit is super difficult to get to work (unless you used 7.55 which sucks) anyway and you could use rest mode.

you've missed out 5.05 buddy you can easily jailbreak without the need of usb

my pro once in 6.72 version before i decided to upgrade 9.00, no it's not perfect no exploit are perfect once a week you've got a KP no matter how good your exploit is, then i decided to upgrade it to 9.00 which i found better than 6.72 first you didn't need backport fix and second when your exploit failed you have a chance to restart the system and do the jailbreaking process all over again, it's almost 2 month i've been using 9.00 on my pro yet i rarely got kp after i changed its storage into SSD the major disadvantage is you need usb stick and usb hub with a power switch

it's funny or it is 9.00 bug if the exploit failed and didn't show any goldhen/dwbug on the setting but you can still playing games stored inside your ps4 hen which was locked before i run the exploit

It only came out less than 2 weeks ago by sleirsgoevy

That said both of my PS4s have been updated to 9.0 because of a few backports that aren't getting done. I'm very happy on 9.0 except for not having FTP without running the payload but that's a minor issue.

I am not going to argue about your experience with 6.72. Did you try the one from Sleirsgoevy that is updated 12 days ago? Or better, can you let us know what host did you use for your 6.72 exploit?
Here is the exploit page data:
https://github.com/sleirsgoevy/ps4jb2/tree/83a3e516a65cfbe1e7ee08c2f59467ae06c10e48
The perfect exploit that is mentioned by @Jayinem is most probably ps4jb2, which is released after 9.00 exploit release.

I am currently using Prb's host that has been updated with the exploit from Sleirsgoevy and it is stable enough for my use (turn on the console, run exploit, install games, play games, turn off, unplug the console). Heck, even Leeful v10 which is released months ago was also stable for me as long I do not rush to open the browser and launch the exploit.

I do agree that backport is a hassle. If you do not like backport, perhaps just go to 9.00. Also on 6.72 if you rush the exploit, it's an almost guaranteed system crash/KP.

Currently, staying on 6.72, just waiting for a better exploit that might exist in lower fws but might be patched in the newer fws. I also am not rushing to play newer games.
