    The only thing I can say is: please, do us a gift and release it earlier. We get it, is one year since this wonderfull hack, now do it for the people!

    If it is what I think it is, then I can finally stop the questions from my friends asking for mods on >3.60 vitas.

    No it's not, the video clearly shows that the firmware is still 3.60.

    (Video didn't render, so couldn't check) Well, looks like I have a few Vitas to sacrifice to the Sony gods.

    Didn't realize it's nearly a year since Henkaku was first released, time does go fast. I definitely welcome a permanent solution:)

    It just loads Henkaku on boot which is no different from what we have now if you look past the five to ten seconds it would take you to open up your browser. It's definitely not something to get excited over. Also, I prefer the browser exploit as the hack removes itself after a shutdown.

    This I would be inclined to agree with but you never know. It would make things marginally easier for me as I switch between PSTV/Vita regularly but otherwise it's a small change.

    As I say though you never know, might be more to it than that, but it's still on 3.60, and it's still called Henkaku, so...

    I really hope this means we will also have ux0 USB mount at boot for PSTV. That would be perfect and the most important feature for me.
    Plugging your USB drive/stick in and out each time you turn the console on is not only annoying but also not very healthy for the USB device and port.

    This just made realize something:

    I have a 1TB external HDD hooked up to my PSTV which itself is powered externally and I switch it off from the mains everytime I switch off my PSTV

    I wonder if it will work if I leave it plugged in the USB port and off from the mains, turn on PSTV, Launch Henkaku, launch Vita Shell, Try to Mount, wait for "insert USB" and only then switch on the main of the HDD

    Lol, I understand what I just said xD

    If you're willing to give up portability, go for the PSTV instead, external HDD support via USB is huuuuge IMHO

    PS Vita memory cards are very expensive

    64GB Vita mem card (the biggest there is currently) costs as much as theVita itself


    With PSTV all you need is a PS3/PS4 controller, an external HDD and you're good to go

    You can find brand new for a very decent price at local shops

    I found mine 2 weeks ago, brand new in box running on OFW 3.20. I paid it 50 euros

    Shops have had PSTV sitting on their shelves collecting dust forever
