    Hi I want to know how to remove gravity crash portable exploit as I'm planning to trade it in soon because I hardly play it anymore.

    Simplest answer: format your Vita.

    Long answer: the exploit itself is on the save file for the Gravity Crash game, stored on the memory card. If you remove the save file, or even just format the entire card, then the exploit will be removed alongside it. Once you've formatted, you can either leave it on its current version or update it. I personally would update it since the new owner won't be able to use the exploit without the exploitable game in the first place (unless you give them your PSN account along with the Vita).

    Don't forget to un-link your account from that console. If not, you may be unable to deactivate the console without the "deactivate all consoles", which can only be done once every 6 months. You could also call customer support and have them do it for you, but we all know very well to avoid customer service if you have a choice.
