It is awesome that the finally did this, but one feature they still haven't implemented I'm sure that everyone wants is a theme option.
Man I wish I would have read up before updating. Looks like I'll be waiting a lot longer. My PS4 will have to tide me over until that day, I guess.

And @hoale, I agree with you about a PS5 theme option. I think I'll check out the PS4 scene on those in the meantime.
I’m so pumped for more progress in the ps5 scene!! I’ve had a ps5 in the closet since launch and have been waiting for the day. I have my current ps4 pro on 9.00 jailbreak, and it’s worked perfect.

But now as more games are being published as ps5 only, it’s time. I can’t wait!!
