    But when I say something that's not popular opinion, they may look at my profile, see that I'm 14, and mistake me for a noob lol xD

    It's pretty fun, your conversation that is :D

    Don't want to interrupt it, but I guess I have to, it's just a simple question:

    I'm in 3.51 and I have TN-V installed on my Vita. I want to update to 3.55 so I can play Trails of Cold Steel when it launches.
    The question is: If I do that, will I be able to still transfer .isos like PSP Games and Homebrew to my Vita for use with TN-V? I'm also using VHBL as an .iso in TN-V just in case.
    The other question is: Will I be banned if I update while having the TN-V and Ark Icons I have at the moment? Because that would not be... very good (buying a game just to be banned and not being able to play it... lol). If it's a probability of me being banned instead of a "No, you won't be" or a "Yes, you'll surely be" then if you can please detail ways to evade being banned.

    This could also work for putting it in the FAQ portion of this guide :), pretty useful.

    Razor, thanks for your utility, really handy! I hate doing the mails myself after all. Keep on with the good work!

    We don't know how Sony will react to these hacks, so I dunno about the banning situation.
    If you already have a PSP game on your 3.51 Vita, then go ahead and do Part 3 of my tutorial to be able to get TN-V and VHBL. After that, update to 3.55, where your TN-V bubble will stay the same. That way, you can still play PSP ISOs AND play Trails of Cold Steel when it launches! :)

    Well. Didn't know I would lose the e-mail exploit, but I guess that's an obvious one.

    Hmm, what will win. My fanatism for the series, or hacks... I'm kinda prepared already if I might say so, all I really need for the future is TN-V and VHBL so... I say I go for it.

    Well, thanks for the quick answer guys! Just in case when I update I'll be careful about not connecting much to PSN unless it's absolutely necessary. Don't want anything weird happening, do we?

    Yes, I think I'll do that just in case.
    Well, that means I won't even need to log in to PSN since I have a PS3 to transfer things to my Vita.

    pretty much, all you really need is TN-V and ARK or onemenu or all three if you like lol you should also look at using vitaFTP to transfer your stuff like ISO's its less hassle i think

    Oh yes, I have VitaFTP. Yeah, I think I have most of the stuff that I would need in the future.

    Well, December 5... can't wait!

    Okay, I'll stop spamming messages here already xD
