    I have a few questions about hacking Vita:

    - I think current FW I am on is 3.60, is there anything I can do as far as hacking goes (Play PSP games, etc.)?

    - Is it worth hacking Vita if I already have a PSP hacked/with CFW?

    Thoughts and help appreciated on this :)

    Hacking Vita will enable you to play native homebrews that are superior. Moreover, Vita is stronger, thus better emulation (desmume (NDS emulator) is already running on Vita. Give it some time and it will be full speed. Lastly, its easy to install Henkaku (the hack itself)

    Are you kidding me? The homebrew is KICKASS.

    Unfortunately Rinnema's the only one creating any. RIP the scene.

    If you got nothing better to do then to post rubbish then please don't post.
    Besides, developing homebrew isn't something one can do in a few hours.

    As for OP, I'd hack it and wait it out.
    Ever since HENkaku got released, the Vita scene has prospered.

    One thing to point out about the Vita. If you happen to own the first model, its screen is OLED. That means any emulated game will look really nice given the deep contrast of colour, compared to the PSP's cheaper LCD for example. - Just something to bear in mind. The megadrive games I have been playing on the Vita look so vibrant, it's given my Vita a new lease of life.

    Why don't you create some then m8? Time spent shitposting about yiffcuck not releasing his source would be better spent learning about the intricacies of the vita or even creating your own HB.

    It's lacking in quantity, but quality-wise Rinnema is doing some great work, as well as others. Don't undermine their efforts in a useless attempt to get yiffingjew to release his source. It's not gonna happen anytime soon matey.

    I wasn't even bringing up the source code but nice way to try to cram that it.

    You could install the offlineinstaller.
    That way you can just open the email app and launch HENkaku that way.

    Nope, as long as you put the system into sleep mode, the hack will be there, although once you turn of completely, you will need to install it again
