    Is there a reason as to why this is so? Also is there a way to get the games compatible with Vtx hen?

    Definitely not gonna reinstall all 61 games
    I'll stick with Mira. I haven't experienced any bugs or anything yet. I was just curious why the games weren't compatible with Vtx

    interesting.
    what error msg do you get?
    i’ve had no problems whether i installed them via vtx hen 1.6 only via esp8266 or via mirahen on al-azif, although i tend to use esp8266 mostly.

    i should clarify, i get issues with mira but not in sense i can’t run the game once installed to internal or usb, just general other issues getting to that point

    No idea check the code on github.

    What is odd is that mira hen was meant to be mira+vtx wasnt it?

    The games are there, but locked
    I just started using the esp8266 as well

    But the games are only unlocked under Mira. I have no problems with Mira tho, but I just want to have the options to use both hens in case shit happens in the future

    To fix this, start ftp on ps4 and go to /user/license. Each fpkg you install will have a .rif and .idx file in /user/license. SpecterDev's exploit contains Vortex's HEN and creates .rif and .idx files with filenames that start with 'fake'. When you install a fpkg with just the HEN payload, the .rif and .idx filenames start with 'free'.

    With a ftp client rename the .rif and .idx files to start with 'free' instead of 'fake' then the fpkg will work with both versions.

    Definitely works. So what I did was copied all the licence files off to my PC the used a batch renaming tool to replace fake with free and Bam

    Thanks again.

    This will be useful for those who run into this issue in the future

    Also the reason why I'm leaning towards Vtx is because rest mode works on my slim with that hen.

    Thanks for the feedback, it's good to know that it's possible to copy the files back and they work.
    Not sure if it matters but you might want to check the permissions of the files you copied back. Ftp doesn't handle file permissions when you copy files, the permissions will always change to 777.
    They should be 770, so that's why I recommended to just rename the files through ftp since the permissions don't change.

    All I did was copy the file back and it worked. That's good enough for me.

    This is very useful info and definitely belongs in the guide.

    Though you gotta wonder why they don't just stick to an effing standard.

    By using the 'fake' prefix, the MIRA+HEN payload is able to get Entitlement Control working in the debug menu.
    Entitlement Control only works when the rif/idx files are prefixed with 'fake'.
    Overall the MIRA+HEN payload is geared more for debug/dev over the standalone HEN payload.

    It's in 'debug settings>game>add content manager'. It disables or deletes licenses.
    Most won't need this, but devs might.
