    Hey guys,

    I'm not into the vita scene much. But am I right to assume that there is nothing I can do with my firmware (or 3.01) since I don't have any exploitable game and they aren't available for purchase anymore?

    If there is something I might've overlooked, please let me know. Better be safe than sorry :)

    Thanks!

    Follow the link that Snailface posted, update your Vita and purchase + download King of Pool ASAP, it will most likely disappear on monday. It will give you the possibility to run TN-V, the most powerful loader with PSP interface.

    Had some free time!

    Updated the vita, bought a $20 code of Amazon, and currently downloading the game.

    All is good right? :D

    All is good! Be sure to backup the game using CMA/OpenCMA so that you won't lose the game should something go wrong.

    also
    this is VERY VERY important

    on the vita
    go to setting
    load setting
    go to system-then->auto-start setting
    uncheck Download Update file for System Software


    so you will NOT auto download an update
    it will be ON by DEFAULT


    ALL VITA USERS should do it
    you never know when a bad update might happen (see what happened with the ps3 a few times)

    Also install the game not just buy and leave it on your download list.

    Awesome, thanks! I read your thread earlier up til the FAQ part. So I didn't read the CMA part yet.
    Thanks for the save files, and the CMA links. I'll check them out later tonight :D

    One last question, Why should I install TN-V? Isn't TN-V6 the latest?

    Thanks again!

    While you can install TN-V6 directly. You can still install TN-V4 and use the built in update feature to update to TN-V6.

    Oh ok but there isn't any point in not installing it directly right?

    Nope. It really doesn't make any difference if you update TN-V instantly. You will still get the same updates from installing and updating.

    I'm happy to help! That's why I am here after all!

    The Vita is a really good piece of hardware and it gets even better with an exploit. Hope you have lots of fun with TN-V!
