    Got another pstv to upgrade and play new games, but wanted to get rid of the annoying featured tab before running a system update.

    I followed this guide and stupidity deleted the folder because vita shell kept freezing when I try to rename it.
    http://www.psx-place.com/threads/tutorial-how-to-remove-the-featured-screen-on-pstv-vita-tv.11095/

    Now pstv boots to black screen. I've tried holding down the power button when I insert the power cable, but I just see the light blink twice and then nothing.

    Anything else I can do to try to recover it?

    Ok never mind, false alarm. I kept trying to power on and off and it booted normally now. Henkaku and everything seems to be working too! And the featured tab is now gone so no more trying to get rid of it and crashing the system again.

    Mods please delete thread. Thanks!

    I forgot
    Most things on vs0, generally speaking, won't result in a brick if modified/deleted.

    Just a future warning, os0 is where system files that really matter are, messing around there without knowing what you're doing could easily result in a brick.
