can i update a JB PW2?

Hi, i got a PW2 last year and jailbroke it, it is running KUAL 2.6 and FW v5.6.5.

Can i update the FW version to the latest?

Is it worth it?

Yes.
Worth it? It does not cost anything.
Other than that, "worth it" is a subjective question that only you can answer.

Plus, you can go back to 5.6.5 if you want to.

Only use the firmware from your model's amazon page (6th gen, PW2).
