I have a few issues with my Vita. For reference, I have a 2000 model on 3.60 running Henkaku.

-Not sure if this is due to homebrew, but 99% of the time, my browser refuses to work. Either it won't load sites or it outright causes my Vita to crash. It also messes with the database upon rebooting/turning it back on.
Edit: iTLS fixes it.

-Autoplugin 2 won't update my plugins. Something about not being connected to the WiFi despite my Vita being connected. I can still look for new plugins as well as install them.
Edit: an update came out at some point and I was able to get my plugins updated just now.

-This isn't an issue and more so a question I have. Is it worth buying a memory card and having physical games while having a hacked Vita? It's just something I've been wondering about for a while.

-The DS34Vita plugin doesn't seem to work last I check. Don't know what's up with that.

Help with any of these would be appreciated.

Why dont you follow the steps from vita hacking guide and check your setup?

Check all the steps and fix what is not corrected.

The browser needs an SSL update.
One of the steps is installing a vpk to fix that.

You can use original games.
If you use sd2vita you can store them there and preserve your carts.

I hacked my Vita over a year ago and I'm pretty sure I followed all the steps correctly (though I had to do some troubleshooting after. I'll look through it again though.

Edit: so I just looked through and things have changed since I hacked my Vita last year. Looking over the old steps, it doesn't seem like I missed anything.

Do you have a link to that?

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
