    Gents,

    Just in case you didnt know yifan & co are looking for wiling sacrifices to the VITA Gods.

    You can sign up Here: https://t.co/aO3jUJ09vS

    Yifans Twitter: https://twitter.com/yifanlu/status/864231704885469184

    BE WARNED: - As this is in BETA there is a very high risk of paperweight making software (Brick) , Please dont sign up, get a brick and then bit*h to yifan, he mentions Brick several times in the form so this application should only be filled out by people willing to risk it for the good of the community.

    As i have 2 VITA's and a PSTV i have offered one of them up for testing.

    Remember - without testers , bugs dont get found and software gets released like an EA game, almost there - just not quite :P

    I will add that some a-hole will leak the beta to the public without the proper warnings about the perma bricks.

    They require your console id, so they'll most likely be hardcoded into the installer (so not only a leak would be useless, if they're pissed they're even able to blacklist you in the final release :P )

    I think that the CID question isn't about mitigating leaks of the builds. But I may be proved wrong anytime by @yifanlu
    EDIT: Proved wrong, since I won't be participating in this beta (heck, I will wait months after public release) I didn't even gave a glance at the actual form :P

    I love how the Yifan has changed the Form name:

    HENkaku Ensō Device Bricking Signup

    ^^Brilliant^^

    There can be no doubt what you are letting your VITA into now :D

    He has also said on his twitter than you still have the final say (You dont have to install the build if you get sent it)

    or pre-beta if they is a chance of brick.

    If you're stupid enough there's always a chance of bricking.

    I kinda want to sign up but kinda don't.
    Bricking issues normally don't put me off but now.. ;'D

    I'll think I'll register anyway, wait for more stable builds

    If you could hard mod a brick, then I'd probably try this, yet there is no hard mod recovery from what I see.

    There's no hardware recovery nope.
    As Yifan said before, don't mess with os0:/ and you'll mostly be fine.
