    No, the recent taiHENkaku update doesn't make it permanent. However HENkaku is now open source, which means that more hackers will be able to work with it. If there is enough interest and some good developments I don't doubt that we could get a more permanent CFW in the future! :)

    I am an idiot and don't know where to get 6.61 plugins for Adrenaline. I have a lot of plugins for use with my PSP, but they're all for 6.60. Any links?

    Late update, I know.

    March 28th 2017:

    taiHENkaku has been updated to R8 and PSN spoofing is working once again. Just restart your Vita and go to the HENkaku activation page. Your exploit should now be updated and you just need to use molecularShell to enable PSN spoofing. Get to downloading those PSN games you missed out on before it's too late!

    Will there be a mod for 3.63 eventually? Reason I'm asking is because a friend is selling his vita cheap but it's updated. I don't mind buying it and waiting but only if there is a chance that one day I'll be able to mod. If not I'll go look for one that isn't updated.

    We don't know, but if there is it likely won't be for a looong long time from now. We'd have to find whole new exploits to get to the same level as Henkaku which could take years to find.

    No, downgrading will likely never be possible without hardware modifications.

    May 12th, 2017:

    I've been a little slow on updating due to work and I'll have a summary below:

    HENkaku R9 has been released:




    Adrenaline v3 and v4 have been released:


    And last but not least, Team Molecule is back teasing something called Henkaku Ensō for the 1-year anniversary of Henkaku (2017/07/29). Not much is yet known about it, but it seems to be a permanent hack for 3.60 that you don't have to reactivate Henkaku everytime you reboot your Vita. It MIGHT (we don't know this) also be a tease for an actual CFW or at least a door to make CFW happen. The official site can be found here: https://enso.henkaku.xyz/

    Here is the teaser video:

    Henkaku has been updated to version 10.

    Changelog:

    • Moved files to ur0:tai, can run without memory card on original Vitas now
    • If molecularShell is removed manually, will not attempt to reinstall by default
    • Support loading plugins from ur0:tai/config.txt if ux0:tai/config.txt cannot be found
    • If you are using Ensō, you must redownload the installer and reinstall configuration in order to use the new path

    Can you explain what exactly is this "enso"? It looks like a permanent henkaku or maybe finally a cfw(probably not but yeah).

    Thanks. I'm new in the vita scene. Coming from the ds/3ds and feeling noob again it's a pain in the ass. One more question that i can't find on Google: there's some games that requires the newer fw, right? Can the henkaku spoof it?

    So I'd like to have a device to play PSX and PSP games, and my PSP is almost busted, might as well shell on a pirated Vita.

    Some question:
    1. Can Vita plays backup PSX games?
    2. If yes, where can I run it? on Vita menu, or on Ardenaline PSP?
    3. Can I run PSP backup on Vita menu? Or I have to boot to eCFW?
    I like convenience. I want to be able to run Vita games, PSP games, and PSX games right on the Vita's main menu, I'm asking if it's possible yet.

    I forgot
    1. Yes, via Adrenaline.
    2. You can add custom bubbles that boot directly to games running from Adrenaline.
    3. Games must be run through an eCFW, but see above.

    You can also play PSX games with Retroarch for Vita.

    August 1st, 2017:

    Henkaku Enso has now been released which gives you permanent CFW for your Vita regardless if you turn your Vita off. Download the VPK from https://enso.henkaku.xyz/ and put it on your vita. Install it using MolecularShell and then open the new Enso Application on your home screen. Follow the instructions and try rebooting your Vita when you are done. If you see the Enso Logo instead of the Playstation Logo while booting you are all set!
