    Neat, kernel exploit confirmed. I'm massively ignorant on the Vita's security system, but makes me wonder if Henkaku would be capable of more significant changes to the OS with some further research, maybe something like disabling the authentication steps for memory cards so you could use a mSD with an adapter instead. NAND redirection, possibly? Or maybe I'm just being too blind hopeful.

    And now let's see who will reverse stage 3!

    What will happen if they got the stage 3?

    MSD usage with adapter might be possible, tho it's external only.
    No way a Photofast like solution will exist for the Vita.

    NAND access to write protected areas is possible with VitaRW.

    Yeah, slot's too small to fit a mSD plus adapter. I'm sure some kind of not-entirely-ugly solution can be thought of. :P

    By "NAND redirection", I meant something like 3DS's emuNAND/redNAND, system software stored in a separate location so it can be updated while still keeping the console on 3.60.

    If anything, it would look like this
    [​IMG]
    Albeit much much slimmer.

    Unfortunately, that isn't really possible.
    The Vita memorycards are bound to a specific firmware.
    If you update your Vita (in this case, EmuNAND), the Vita memorycard will be set to FW 3.61.
    Your SysNAND would still be on 3.60 but your memorycard won't work anymore.
    Unless a CFW comes out which patches that (but you'll need to have it on SysNAND then anyway)

    Ofcourse, this is all theorized and I could be completely wrong about it.

    Well yeah my thinking is if, theoretically, Henkaku is capable of any of this, it'd be capable of patching out checks like that too. But yes all just blind speculation from someone who doesn't know any better for now. Hopefully if/when someone posts up the reverse engineered stage 3, we'll get some more definitive answers.

    I'd much rather see a dual NAND chip but that's just me ;p
    Personally, I could live with two Memcards (one for hacks and one for PSN) and having to solder in a dual NAND chip.

    Stage 3 is impossible. It's too complex.
    Also on the other note if anyone hopes for 3.61 kernel exploit. I read that if someone would ever get into kernel memory on 3.61 it would be a totally rewritten code compared to 3.60.

    Seeing yifanlu's posts on dumping the Vita NAND, how small the contacts are on the Vita board, and for the most part having to piggyback off some surface mount resistors, I'm not sure I'd want to rely on soldering in any capacity.

    This wouldn't be so bad for a PS TV, but for the Vita portable use, might be too bulky..

    Well the blackfin device did come with a gamecart with microsd slot (confirmation needed).

    Hopping something similar will be viable/released soon.

    PSTV hasa USB port, makes more sense to utilize that
