Hey guys. I'm running 3.52 and have ARK and TN-V installed. One annoying thing I am encountering is no access to the store to download my games. Is there a way around this (tried to transfer them from my ps3, but the update nag will not let me do that)? Is it safe to update to 3.55 and keep my ARK/TN-V?

Thoughts? Thanks!

In for answers, I currently am in the same position kinda. If it's safe to update then this is really great news.

Instead of the above guy's "yes" answer, which doesn't give much information on the matter, I will tell you in detail.

If you have installed your TN-V/ARK-2/VHBL bubbles on 3.52, then go ahead and update now, I guess.
However, you will miss out on the email exploits and tricks which allow you to install custom themes and make custom LiveArea screens, etc.

As well as this, you could simply use a PS3 (assuming you have one) to download PSVita and PSP stuff so you can transfer it to your Vita without any update nags, or having to try and go to the PS Store, when you can't on a lower FW.

Thank you for this information. I will install TN and ARK to my ps vita then I will update. Main reason is new games cant played on 3.52 and I really want to play Trails Of Cold Steel!!

I don't know if this applies to any new games you play on your ps vita but i have a new game called superbeat xonic which asked me to update my system firmware. I am on 3.52 so that is why it asked me to update. I just clicked no and never got the update nag from the game ever again and can play the game just fine. It is a physical copy of the game.

Ow that's strange, I have that game too on 3.52 but luckily I don't receive the nag, perhaps my vita was offline then. I will try to insert TOCS anyway to see if I can play itcan avoid the update.

btw superbeat is one of the best games I played in my life. I am just getting to the stage where I am keeping up with howl.i.n.g at 2.5 speed on 6trax FX but still fail it miserably. I love the game xD

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
