I just wanted to share that I just bought my first PS5, and the only thing I've done so far is checked the fw (4.50). It's been so long since I've been involved with PS hacking, I'm really just trying to figure out a good place to start.

It's going to be a long slow learning process, but I'm excited for the chance to test out everything this site has to offer!

Looking forward to learning and being a member here! :alien:
