    At present time, no. It is 3.60 or bust when it comes to HENkaku.

    It's impossible for now and it maybe never will be possible.

    Edit: not fast enough...

    My question is how fast a release for 3.61 was made just shortly after henkaku was revealed. Was sony preparing a update without even knowing about henkaku? Even nintendo has a distant time before firmware updates and new exploits. :unsure:

    It was one or two weeks later.
    I don't believe that Sony was working on a Vita update back then, but just fixing the webkit exploit (the first exploit used by HENkaku) was really easy. They just had to update webkit to a newer version and test if it's working.
    But I heard that other exploits used by HENkaku where fixed too (had no chance to take a look by myself if this is true).

    Your vita didn't update on its own while you were sleeping. You have to agree to have it update. It downloads the update, but won't install unless you say it's okay.

    Doesn't the ps3 and ps4 have auto updates? I believe it only works if you set it that way or have playstation plus account. Just like auto downloads i wasn't sure.
