Hi guys, I've just ordered a new PSTV from ozgameshop, which should be arriving in a few days. I'm hoping you might be able to answer a few questions that I can't find the answer to. If they have been answered before, I'm sorry. 1. What firmware do new PSTVs ship with? I'm not sure if there are different production waves or not, but this is the one I ordered http://www.ozgameshop.com/playstation-vita-accessories/sony-playstation-tv-eu-plug 2. What is the best firmware to be on? I don't care too much about homebrew, but I would like to do the whitelist exploit to play most Vita games, and I would also like to run PSP backups if possible. 3. If the firmware is below what is recommended, can I update to the recommended one like in the PSP days, or am I forced to update to the latest version? 4. I see the bubbles exploit tutorial here says any PSP game/demo can be used, which I have from my PSP days, but am I able to access the PSN store on a lower firmware by using Vita Update Blocker to download the PSP game? 5. Apparently the PSTV needs a PS3 to activate if I don't want to update the PSTV, which I don't have. Am I able to do the email exploits without activating to fix the whitelist, then update to 3.55 to install eCFW? Thank you so much for the help!
