HENkaku offline hacks coming soon


According to a tweet from resident Vita hacker Yifan Lu, soon the HENkaku exploit will be able to be launched offline by simply opening an email. There is no word of release as of yet, but it is confirmed that it will only support firmware 3.60.

It'll be released, according to XYZ.
It's a VPK for an installer, when launched it downloads latest payload and makes a new email account.

For all you people who actually use Vita's email (you really shouldn't) you can continue to do so.

Wait so. We won't actually have to connect to Wi-Fi ? It will open the email app.. And install from within the email app?

Edited: just seen the video .. Yup :) yes!!!

Sweet! (Still will need internet to FTP tho)
Well yeah, but now you'll be able to play emulators and stuff when you're out and about, without having to leave your Vita on standby :3

I'm just wondering why you'd rather be on 3.57 than 3.60. Since 3.60 can do everything 3.60 can, and also has HENkaku.

Don't you mean "Since 3.60 can do everything 3.57 can..." There are two 3.60s in the sentence twice, lol. Anyway, I just hate to do it again and again. I hope one day we will not need to do it again and again.

Yes.

That's why I prefer my PS Vita to be 3.57 or lower because I hate to do it again and again. @_@
But... the Vita's standby life is about 1 Forever, and you only need to run it on a bootup.
Also, we're getting offline HENkaku Soon(TM) via Email, so it'll get even easier.

I know but I will keep watching before I make my final decision. :) Thanks.
