    None of the tutorials I have watched show this. I have firmware 3.73 and I have just h*cked my Vita.

    you'll have to search google, but there's a website with game links for all playstation platforms. they're official links too, so they won't be removed via dmca. it's against the rules to write the app name here (I think).

    look up pkgj. I don't think the app name is against the rules, but the links for it are. it will say how to use it on github

    "h*cked" lmao
    Vita application packages are installed using VitaShell which comes with HENkaku, but that's all the information you're basically allowed to share on GBATemp because they don't want any takedown notices

    Words like hacked and pirated aren't censored on GBAtemp.
    It's against the rules to directly link towards pirated content however the discussion of it is allowed.

    So is mentioning the name of pkgj or w/e the name is.
    Think about Freeshop and how popular it was on the 3DS boards back in the day.

    @Lettmon I suggest NoPayStation.
    Games that come in .vpk form (usually maidump or vitamin? dumped games) have to be installed from within Vitashell/Molecular shell.
    I recommend against installing vpk backups as it's not a clean backup.
    The saves and DLC is incompatible with retail games.
    Games that come as folder rips can be installed by copying them to the respective parent folder (app folder etc)
    Refreshing the Live Area from within Vitashell will display the bubbles of the game.

    Directly mentioning names of piracy sites isn't allowed, but if you edit your post the way I edited the quote it's fine.

    He's saying you don't need to censor it. Discussion about hacks and piracy is fine.

    Ok, I copied the game folder to the Vitashell app folder, but when I press triangle my Vita reboots instead of showing Options and Refresh Live Area. Is it because I have firmare 3.73 instead of 3.72? Do I have to downgrade to 3.72?

    Lettmon, all plugin do not support firmware higher than 3.65 because the enso only work best on 3.60 and 3.65. If you prefer to use 3.68-3.73, you have to accept that thing will break and will not work correctly because the firmware block those plugin. If you want to use plugin and hack and ecchi game, consider downgrade.
    For your info, 3.68-3.73 hacked can play some psp game Patched, and can use vitashell to transfer/edit file. That's all.

    Do not follow video guides, follow vita.hacks.guide if possible. Just downgrade, hacks aren't stable on 3.69+ and it will improve your console in a few steps...
    To downgrade, make sure to use SKGleba's modoru. It fixed the problems on higher FWs. (I would recommend FW 3.60 so you can reinstall Henkaku easily)
    After you downgrade, make sure to use reFOOD to play games 3.61+.


    For piracy (or pir*cy as you like), you can use PKGj/ NoPayStation. They use the official links so no DMCA possible (as stated above).
    Do not use maidumps/vitamins dumps, most of them aren't just vpks and contain some folders along with them but maidump in particular is very unstable and outdated.
    If you find a clean VPK dump, why not, use VitaShell (It doesn't come with Henkaku, MolecularShell does and i would recommend to install VitaShell from it) to install it.
    If you find a NoNPDRM dump, that's fine but you will need to use a plugin (which is required for piracy anyways, it's also called NoNPDRM).

    you should research before blindly following guides.

    understand what you need, what needs to be done.

    all guides ive known explain whats needed, but to give you the best answer, pkgj is the best option.

    i used to use miadumps, never had any issues other than boot options were a nightmare to get certain games to work, so stick with the above.
