    5.00 M33-4
    Changes:

    - Speed selected for umd/iso was not properly locked in some new games that used scePower_EBD177D6 instead of scePowerSetClockFrequency to change speed.
    - UMD/ISO speed settings now apply to PSN games too.
    - Fixed libupdown.prx connecting to dark-alex.org instead of sony when npsignin_plugin checks for a new version and m33 update is enabled.
    - Iso file descriptor was not closed in driver deletion
    - Added a shutdown command to vshmenu.
    There is nothing either good or bad.
    But thinking makes it so.

    all good reasons for me to stay on 4.01m33-2, now I want to see ƒR()§†H@X's rebuttal. but sadly I won't because it seems he never post at all in the debate forums.

    as of now I just got the cons. and now I want the pros.

    and ƒR()§†H@X seems to be a huge supporter of 5.01m33-4. he's usually really good at stating his reasons why.

    he could really help this debate out.

    This makes it work 100% from what I can tell on a game that laged a lot before so. I have no tried this on other games yet.

    personally ive answered this in another post somewhere stating that the only downfall is the lack of choice of custom themes.some say that its not compatiable with all homebrew but personally i believe they must have phats or just not tried the updated 5.00 m33-4.the autousb feature is nice as well as the sleep function for music.the psn store i rarely use,but it defeats the purpose of having to trick my ps3 into thinking normal firmwares run just to get a game from the store if i actually feel like it,and the exclusive full onscreen keyboard option instead of having to scroll thru 50 letters to get one letter.there really is no difference but a few features imho between 4.01 m33-2 and 5.00 m33-4 however,but the reasons i gave are what made me switch.custom themes will improve in the future.4.01 m33 was unstable and lacked any working things for it in the beginning as well,so honestly i dont see the hate.thats why they get -2,-3 etc in their names.for bugfixes cause no custom firmware was ever perfect at first

    Upgrading from 4.01 M33-3 to 5.00 M33-3 i haven't had any issues whatsoever.

    Everything still works as it did, apps, games, emulators etc, and you get the increased functionality of 5.00 features, if you want them. Like Frost said, having that full proper keyboard is a godsend. Obviously the only thing i did have to do is find a 5.00 compatible theme, but it didn't take too long to be honest.

    I haven't however updated to M33-4 and probably never will as none of the updates really appeal to me.

    I'd like to hear peoples negatives for 5.00 against 4.01 though, i haven't found any personally.

    yeah I remember when 3.90m33 first came out. a lot of people weren't making the move over to it. a lot of people complaining about how it was lame and stuff. it got a lot of hate. and because of that I waited a while before I updated. and... I felt stupid for not updating right away because there was absolutely nothing wrong with it. I have a feeling my hesitance to update to 5 will also feel like a huge waste of my time. making me think I should just update to 5. but I notice ƒR()§†H@X mentioning it might be because they have phat, and that's what I got is a phat. so now I'm even more hesitant...

    Yes popsloader for 5.00 M33 has 4.01 pops, i'm not sure if they're the same, but yes, both can be used.

    Yes The Pops Are The Same - And No There Haven't Been Any Cons Except That The New CXMB Doesn't Work Properly With My Old 4.01 Theme "Ultimate Black XMB" - I Just Flashed It And It Works Fine So No Problems Really.

    I up-graded last night, i think 5.00 M33 is an improvement, previously said it has a sleep timer for the music and they added a new keyboard set so you don't have to keep pressing one area to get a letter out, i recommend it
