    Yes I know theres noob threads but wanted a clear personal answer.

    I have a Vita that I would say hasn't been updated in 3 years, just chucked it in cupboard when I got it and never used it.

    I also have a PSTV which has never been taken out of box 1-2 years old.

    I have seen the guides online on modding it but wanted to check things like is henkaku the best thing to go for? And is it just a case of get hold of the 3.60 firmware and flashing it to both pstv and vita?

    I also am getting a SD2Vita thing as well.

    If you haven't activated your VITA/PSTV yet, you might be waiting for a bit longer for full functionality. Recently Sony fixed the circumvention method that was used to activate 3.60 VITAs. HENkaku Enso is definitely the way to go, but I wouldn't touch my VITA/PSTV until the activation problem is resolved (at least give it a month or two).

    After you do that, you can change the DNS back to normal, then just visit go.henkaku.xyz on the web browser on vita, then you got it active. :yay:

    Not sure on activation on Vita as when I used it lets say 3 years ago I downloaded a few demos so I don't know if that activated it though all were Vita demos.
