The so called 'Select Games' were not broken in v2.0.
They were only broken in v1.9 and the proposed v2.1 release by LightningMods.
Some of the games that v1.9 broke were PES2018, COD Modern Warfare, Just Cause 3 and Farcry 5.

As mentioned earlier this 2.1.1 release now breaks the rest mode fix that was resolved by SiSTRo in v2.0. With this when you resume from rest mode you get an instant kernel panic.

In my opinion this should be treated as a v2.0-MOD and not the next release in the chain.

The games I just mentioned had nothing to do with the rest mode problem.

These games stopped working and you could not play them anymore because of the patches LightningMods put in HEN v1.9.

In HEN v2.0 SiSTRo did not use these patches so V2.0 does not break any games.

Regarding Rest Mode.
Originally there were 2 main problems with rest mode.

Problem 1: Sometimes when you try and put the PS4 into rest mode it will not work correctly and it will result in a black screen when you resume.

Problem 2: If you entered rest mode (successfully) with a game running, that game would crash when you resumed from rest mode.

SiSTRo successfully fixed 'problem 2' with the release of HEN v2.0 but unfortunately 'problem 1' still exists and still needs to be fixed.

Here's a useful tip when using rest mode:
When you put your PS4 into rest mode you can tell if it worked successfully by watching the LED pattern on the PS4.

Flashing White > Flashing Orange > Solid Orange = Rest mode WORKED and all will be good when you resume.
Flashing White > Solid Orange = Rest mode FAILED and you will get a black screen on resume.

Here are a few games that used to crash instantly when you resumed from rest mode but now work because of the fix in HEN v2.0.
Flockers, Worms Battlegrounds, Worms WMD. Any of these game are perfect candidates for anyone wanting to test rest mode because they usually fail instantly when you resume.

A small amount of games are not affected by the rest mode problem and work without the fix so it is not a good idea to test with theses games because it will give you a false positive when testing. One such game is 'Sonic Mania' and should not be used for testing purposes.
