    is it possible to have a password for every app you want? it would be very useful as i have 3 ps vitas running henkaku and would like to give one to my 7yo nefew but would like to lock settings since he probly wont understand and maybe accidently update so i was wondering if there was such hombrew

    thanks in advance :)

    You can hide system update with Settings+, the original settings app is still there but i THINK you can hide it by modyfing the app.db

    possible i guess to use parental controls, and edit the parental control level in the sfo files for the apps you want.

    i guess like this, you could lock out anything :D

    maybe you need to rebuild database after the sfo edits though, no big problem.

    -- although if you want to be hardcore, you could use vitarw and delete/more/rename the settings app so it doesn't show. i did something similar on 3ds :)

    actually!! just edit the app.db and move the settings app screen position to a 'bad' position, so it won't display... like, make it show on page 90, for example.

    there are quite a few options you have :)

    ok, but changing the number in the sfo is simple enough!
    you can even do it on the vita with vitashell, no extra programs or computer
