    1: Plug your vita into your PC via the charging/USB cable.
    2: Press the Windows key + R, in the search box type System32 (or navigate to it manually "C:\Windows\System32" or something)
    3: This is all the Vita protection files, delete the entire folder. Sony tries to hide them quite well on your own PC, but not well enough.
    4: Your Vita can now play any ISOs and homebrew that you place on it.

    the VITA is NOT hacked
    THERE ID NO CFW

    you update to 2.00 and BUY (with REAL MONEY) your games off the PSN

    you have miss your chance for playing PSP homebrew and PSP back-ups on your VITA with the eCFW

    you are going to need to BUY off game of the PSN if a new exploit is found that can run eCFW

    The post was full of sarcasm. Don't do it or your Windows computer will say boink.

    Also as posted before, there is no way to install CFW on the PSVita. Actually there never has been anything letting commercial PSVita games to run on the system. Just buy the games and be happy. If something does change, it'll be blinking like there is no tomorrow on the front page and stickied on every forum dedicated to this.

    You punch yourself in the face repeatedly.

    Now you can play homebrews and commercial games on your vita.
