    First of all, I read the stickied post here already and I'm still quite lost, I also went to http://wololo.net/ but it was pretty confusing.

    I have a vita on 3.51, and I would like to hack it to play PSP games on it. But first of all, I was wondering if anything is possible on this firmware? If so, where to I get the list of games that I can get from the PSN store to do the hack?

    And can someone explain the TN-V , VHBL, ARK, and the email hack are?

    Thank You and sorry for the Noobiness

    First of all, can someone explain what those things even are, that's why I made the thread

    Do I need certain games from PSN to do so?

    Already have an XL, though it isn't new.

    But srsly, DO NOT UPDATE! You can still get Rejuvenate for your Vita! In fact, get PSM Dev for Unity, because you can make your own games for the Vita! (Kind of)

    Nice job on that guide! :)

    OP, I suggest you visit Hackinformer's Playstation Guide webpage. It'll show you all the known exploits and tricks for 3.51, and it will give you all the tutorials you need! :)

    for the vita there are more restrictions than advantages, this being said, you won't find a friendly guide t hack your vita, because you need stay on lower firmware, then you need specifics psp games so you can use some exploit, finally if you are lucky enough to have all this then you will find that those psp hacks has many issues like no certain home-brew with kernel access, bad audio or no audio at all, poor plugins, and then you will release that if you want to hack a psp then you should buy a psp, native hack for vita, well, you can check rejuvenate stuff but again, you will find so many requirements just to find a poor portability for rejuvenate, like every time you run a home-brew you need connect the vita to a pc, or make a server with your android phone so you can run some home-brew, also don't expect emulators run at full speed, even snes is not emulated properly, let alone psx or 64, so in resume, if you feel boring of your vita, you have another 2 viable options, buy games for it or just sell it.

    thats just not true, for a start if your on 3.52 or lower you dont even need an exploit game and i have wrote a program to make the email hack much easier and wrote an easy to follow guide and as for the psp isos i havent had any issues so far.

    Where should the pboot be installed to?
    I used the PSP-INSTALLER fail-mail trick to write a PSP game to the PSP/GAME folder.
