So my current Vita OLED got 2 dark spots in dark scenes such as games and movies and that's pretty annoying.
Been looking for second hand Vita OLED and most are on 3.70. Anyone else with 3.70 got troubles running Henkaku on it? Working? Same as on 3.65/68?

Why not swap your screen for a new one?
You can find them on AliExpress.

As for 3.70, There will be a hack for it.
No clue when it will drop but it will drop.
Have no clue on how to repair the screen. From what I've seen in the video's the front panel is glued to the screen.
And not sure if PCH1104 screens will work on my PCH1004.

They sell them including screen bezels.
No need to remove the actual OLED panel.

Yes, PCH1104 parts work with PCH1004.
Aside from the different identifier (based upon region), hardware wise there's no difference.
Are they the same OLED screens quality? To replace it, the entire motherboard has to be screwed off? And the connectors of the screen to the motherboard? Can they be easily connected back?

Yes, the main issue is that you literally can't.
Ah yes, henkaku en h-encore are different?
They're just different ways to load henkaku, the end result is the same (aside from differences in firmware version)
So I should avoid Vita's with 3.70?
You can, but getting one just means you'll have to wait a bit longer until theflow releases his 3.69/70 hack (which will be sometime later this year).

As mentioned above, you'll probably just want to buy a new screen & replace it.

So today I've got a second hand PSVita OLED with....3.65 lol. So basically two Vita's. The seller prepared everything so henkaku 3.65 is already installed.
This one has no dark spots like from fall but there are those blodges on the horizontal half of the screen. But atleast they are not visible unlike the other Vita that has the dark spots visible in opening intro of DBZ: Battle of Z. I expected that as those minor problems are inherent for OLED but never ever LCD.

So everything goes fine. But when I wanna log in with my PSN, it screams "You have to update system software" and spoofing is enabled.
How can I log in without getting that msg?

There's a 'screen flasher' app that can temporarily reduce the blotches the oled screens suffer from over time.
It literally just flashes colours at an epilepsy inducing rate - but in my experience it does temporarily reduce the dark areas affected on the screen. Just leave it running for ten minutes and you should notice a difference.

That's exactly as I was thinking so I was right. Expected it tho. My own Vita hasn't been played on a lot so it's like a perfect oled screen.

Got the update software msg fixed by changing the spoof version to 3.70. It was on 3.68. No wonder why I kept getting the msg lol

Any idea which screen flasher app to reduce the blotches?
