    No, there are currently no methods to hack a Vita on 3.65 or above. At this time, you need 3.60 to install Henkaku on your Vita. There is a method to load Henkaku Enso on 3.65, however it still requires a base firmware of 3.60 to install.

    However, TheFlow has kernel exploits available for 3.65 and above, which will release sometime after September (no, we don't know exactly when yet). It's currently best to keep your Vita on 3.65, as that is the last firmware that officially supports Henkaku Enso, which is the coldboot version of the exploit (meaning you no longer have to run the Henkaku installer after every reboot, you only need to do it once).

    If you don't care about having to run the exploit every time you reboot, you can safely update to 3.68 and, once again, wait for sometime after September for TheFlow to release his exploit, as it still works on the current latest firmware.

    so there will be henkaku and to 3.68 but the diferent is that you have every time to do something to start it?
    but in 3.65 will only happened once?
    and it will be ready maybe in septemper? for every firmware?

    do we know if will be a simple move to run henkaku? or if its some long way more?

    thank you very much for your time

    For 3.67 and 3.68, you have to run the exploit after your system reboots, and only after your system reboots. Once you turn the system off fully (not sleep mode, just plain off), you have to re-run the exploit after you turn it back on to access homebrew/game backups. Assuming it's anything like 3.60, it should be as simple as just going to a web page and waiting a moment. We also had the exploit installed to the Email application, where instead of having to open the browser and connect to the internet and run the exploit, you could just open a specific email in the email application and it'd install the exploit that way no wifi needed. Whether that will still work or not is to be determined.

    For 3.63 and 3.65, you'll be able to install Henkaku Enso which is the coldboot exploit. Basically it's a one-time install, and then afterwards your device will always boot with Henkaku installed from the beginning. Do note that this doesn't stick if you upgrade firmwares, so if you stick with 3.65 for coldboot then you won't be able to update to 3.68 afterwards.


    Regarding release dates, all we know is that the plan is to release them sometime after September possibly, and it will release for all 3.6x firmwares. The reason the exploit doesn't have any kind of stable release date is because The Flow is waiting to see if Sony will announce/discontinue the Vita completely by the end of 2018, and that's pretty much it. As far as anyone is aware, the exploits are completely ready to go.

    If my PSTV is on 3.65, can I install Enso on it?

    Hi guys, I have a question which is kinda important. I have 2 vitas both modded but with different accounts, if I lose molecularshell and vita shell on one, can I copy everything from the other memory and put it on the one without the Shell? I find both the shells in the app folder, am I right?
