    Henkaku is the only native hack you can use, so upgrade to 3.60 via this method: http://wololo.net/2016/12/03/henkaku-update-server-easy-way-update-ps-vita-fw-3-60/

    And then install Henkaku by going to henkaku.xyz and following the instructions. After that, check the noob thread for info on how to get various homebrew and games and other things working. If you want PSP mode stuff like PSP ISO loading, you'll need to have a PS3 in order to activate your Vita and transfer a PSP game/demo that can be used for ARK/Adrenaline.

    Petz Saddle Club Demo is still up afaik, and it works perfectly for Adrenaline. Just make sure you spoof 3.63 in molecularShell.

    NO COFFEI!
    There's no way to know. If the people who work on the hack figure out a way and want to they will. All anyone can say!

    Team Molecule has said that PSN spoofing is the absolute lowest priority for them, so unless someone else figures something out it's not going to happen anytime soon.

    You have to do a factory restore, after which you can add a PSN account before being asked to upgrade your firmware.

    Just read this, you don't have to reply to my other post anymore.
    Would I have to reset the memory card too? I have games on there.

    Nope. Just remove the memory card before you do a system restore and you won't have to wipe it.

    Just be aware that any official games that might have been on it won't work with your own PSN account. I'm not sure if backups are effected the same way, but I doubt they are.

    Guys, I keep getting the popup: "There is not enough space to save trophy information. Trophy information for the following application will be deleted. Do you want to continue?" When I start a new game.... Does anyone know how to deal with this?

    Thanks.

    You likely hit the space limit for trophies on the Vita.

    Backup ux0:/user/00/trophy and ur0:/user/00/trophy to your PC and then delete those folders. Shouldn't have any problems after that. You might need to rebuild the database afterwards, but I don't think so.
