The NEX-5 was the first to be decrypted a little while back ...

So what bugs were fixed or what additional functionality was developed for the Nex-5 by the hackers?

Was there ever any practical benefit to be had from having it cracked?

No, i think it was just a proof of concept that a new version number could be loaded and unloaded  without bricking the camera. No-ones going to "improve" the current firmware as far as i know, but presumably open the possibility of creating alternative firmware with more options and control, like rockbox for MP3 players.
