    When performing the update, plug your Vita into a power source when the Terms & Conditions. This will bypass a strange Anti-Update function added to Enso-Ex which is known to block updates in the worst situations.

    You need to use QCMA to push an update to the console (3.69).

    Did you use Enso-ex?

    Ok. That error code you're getting is because your XML file in your Update is not the right region. Try changing it to yours

    sex is kiosk firmware. you can boot into it using idu. you're limited to 5 minutes in demonstration mode, unless the device is plugged in.

    I assume it's called sex, 'cause that's what it's called on the ps3. the s may stand for "store."

    I'm afraid I don't know what you did. have you tried plugging in the system? I've never been in recovery mode while in kiosk mode. iirc, you have to do a button combination to get out of demonstration mode. there's idu mode and uri caller that might be able to get you out of it, but I don't know if you'll be able to install those. obviously not if it errors right when boot the system up.

    btw: https://www.psxhax.com/threads/ps3-cex-sex-dex-firmware-features.2351/ sex apparently stands for "shop."

    hmm...I heard about that vpk from atreyu187 on psx-place. he also installed it, and it screwed up his system. I'll send him a pm to see how he fixed it.

    I Just pm'd him. was this a pseudo-rebug type thing you were installing? that kinda rings a bell.

    not sure. I've installed dex components but not the entire thing. I believe that without the dex shell.self, things become very unstable.

    I remember at the end it said your system is now a test kit
    Whenever I turn my vita on it says a serious error has occurred in the os or runtime error code C1-3473-7 or it will boot in safe mode
