    Hello all, Im new to custom firmwares and I've done a little research about hacking my PS Vita but im not extremely confident.

    Im wondering what is the best CFW or guide to follow in order to play PSP ISO's and possibly Emulators on my PS Vita running Firmware 3.15?

    I dont own a PSP so im mainly interested in playing Final Fantasy Type 0 on my PS Vita along with Crisis Core but if I could get a Gameboy Emulator/Nintendo or something to play the old pokemon games that'll be great!

    What are my options? Is their only one 'PSP Mode' hack available or do I have a few to choose from?

    Also is it possible to undo a hacked Vita? Install the original firmware if need be or change CFW? Im also assuming my original Vita games will play with a PSP hack?

    I downloaded Skate Park City from my PC on the PSN website, I've added it to my download que but it wont seem to download to my PS Vita.. I've also tried downloading it to my PS3 then transfer which I cant do unless I update my Vita.. Am I too late for this?

    3.18 and below is fine to run psp, ps1 and all the other emulators.. you will need access to a ps3 to do it though.

    my post from wololo:

    - choose to stay on your current firmware or update manually to 3.18 using your vita and pc (ps1 roms work better on 3.18 when you run it through XS Moto/tekken 2 if US or Sports superbike 2/tekken 2 in EU)
    - Install openCMA patch over CMA on your pc in admin mode
    - log a ps3 onto the psn with the same account as your vita
    - download the exploit games/ps1 loaders on the ps3 from the psn store and leave them in bubbleform, no need to install.
    - make sure yoru vita is activated if not then format it and follow the steps when it comes on, log into the internet and login to psn account, watch the intro and then goto settings and put the vita into plane mode, reboot it.
    - plug cable into vita and pc and on the vita goto cma, when it loaded unplug the cable out of the pc and leave the error screen up and plug it into the ps3 and follow the steps on the vita to go into the ps3 and copy game across
    - copy exploit games across and then goto the pc and setup the exploit save files AND THE PSP 660.PBP file (named like that, make sure if file extensions are off to switch on and name like this) by putting them in the myydocuments>ps vita>86fd876g78f6gd ETC ETC> saveetc etc
    -plug vita back into pc and transfer the save exploits over which you just put in the vita folder
    - launch the game and trigger the exploit while holding down the Shoulder (cant remember which prolly right) button and you will get a black screen with text
    - goto advaanced>install and install the 660.PBP then back out and exit, your done.

    Thanks.

    Sorry if its a stupid question but buying Tekken 2 in the AUS store is just the same as the EU right?

    If its all leading up to an EU game save that I need then yeah it'l be fine because all DLC from Region 2/EU and Region 4/AUS is all cross compatible along side game saves..

    Sorry to ask a newb question, but...
    Do you absolutely need a PS3 to use CFW on a 3.18 Vita?
    Or can I use the download queue to install Talkman Travel: Tokyo and Tekken 2?
    I ask because I myself am lacking a PS3.
