    Hidden information about the current firmware installed on PSVita can be revealed by following the following steps:

    1- Go to Settings > System > System Information
    2- Press simultaneously R Trigger + L Trigger + DPad Left + Square for a few seconds
    3- Release those buttons then immediately press the Start button

    This menu contains information about system build, repository, revision

    It has been reported that the exact combination of keys works on PS3 as well, also accessing a similar hidden menu, and also on PSP if you keep holding Start after the first buttons combination (credit to Foxi4).

    Works on PSP aswell, with one difference - you need to hold down the START button, otherwise the extra info will disappear.

    this could be nice if you bought a vita used, or if someone released a CFW for the vita.
    I don't see a use for it at this time...

    SnailTip: (no extra charge :P)

    Just tap Dpad left while holding Start and the infos will stay put.

    I always prefered CRT displays over LCD - it's really a matter of preference... but yes, it's damn classy. :P

    Has anyone gotten this to work on 1.61?
    // Nevermind, went to the youtube page. This method has been patched out now.
