    Hello! This is the Vita Handbook. Release 1.50. It features a complete rewamp of the guide, aimed at helping 3.60 users get full use out of their Vitas.

    1.50 changelog:

    * This system software update improves system performance.

    Download: Torrent - Mega

    If you don't know what download to use, use the torrent. You can choose what file to download with your favorite torrent client.

    This archive has five downloads. Ultimate is the full download. Slim is the full download with all big files (such as QCMA or certain big files) trimmed off. Light is the download with all software trimmed off, giving the lightest download but missing many large executables. Standalone is the guide as .txt. checksums.txt is to check checksums.

    No improved 'stability' update? Son, I'm disappoint.

    Anyway, thanks for this pack. It contains useful Vita modding information that are hard to find :)

    JOKES ON YOU IT OPENS WITH WINRAR

    Also the section about swapping X and O is rather pointless as you can change the functions of all VITA buttons in the settings

    There is an important difference between setting change of X & O and software change of X & O. Setting changes only applies to the LiveArea, while software change will change all apps that check for X & O status to use O instead. Do all apps use this? Some do, some force X or O no matter what X & O setting you currently have (hardcoded), much like the PSP days.

    Really? I wanst aware of that, everything Ive used has changed based on setting. PSP and PS1 games can be changed on a game-by-game basis as well, can't they?

    Spent all day figuring out how to upgrade from 3.52 to 3.60, since it would just error on me
    Turns out your xml lacks australia

    should be safe to update right? just added another chunk with an AU code
