    Is it worth keeping my vita on 3.18? I want to buy some games of psn

    The only reason I would keep it on 3.18 would be able to download games for free, will the eventually happen?
    Is there a way to download games to the vita without updating? I have a ps3 but its got CFW and banned online.

    It´s up to you. IMO letting a Vita gather dust while waiting for someone to release a native hack isnt worth it.

    Do you want to play now? Update and buy your games/download your PS+ freebies.

    You could also buy a second Vita, like a bunch of people do.


    Maybe. Maybe not. Progress has been made in the Vita-scene. Still, nobody knows for sure if there is a native hack around the corner.


    Nope.

    You'll be waiting a very long time, as no native Vita Kernel Exploit is going to be anytime soon to allow backups. Only CFW for the PSP emulation is available.

    Personally, I'd either update it, if you want to play games right now or keep the 3.18 console for whenever a hack is out (if ever??) and buy another Vita purely for originals and Online use.

    why dont buy the game you want and keep your psp exploit? I think you will loose much updating.

    atSora Takeuchi. No stop m8 now, don't update!!!

    You guys don't tell him to update at all that's wrong and misleading to him, you never know whats coming round the corner, you can leave your Vita on 3.18 and still do everything apart from the PSN store and really whats that to offer to you???, nothing just crappy free downloads and over expensive games that can be bought online or in a shop for next to nothing!. So no m8 don't update your 3.18 Vita, most of these peeps that are telling you this information up above either probably screwing cause they don't have a Vita on 3.18 anymore because they have updated them out of frustration or accidental, I don't know or just even tricking you into updating your Vita or probably don't even own a Vita in the first instance :evil:

    Your just saying lol because you know I'm right and your vitas stuck on FW3.35 which is useless to any native hack, hes still got something going for his that's if its not to late for him because of your ridiculous comments! You know very well a Vita on FW3.18 and below has a good chance of a native hack and you know that so don't lie and telling a newbie like him otherwise just wrecks his chances!!!

    So you dislike the idea of people buying games and using their console now rather than letting it gather dust while waiting for a possible hack that might get released some day in the future.

    He asked this question below, your comment is irrelevant:-
    Is it worth keeping my vita on 3.18? YES I want to buy some games of psn

    The only reason I would keep it on 3.18 would be able to download games for free, will the eventually happen? YES
    Is there a way to download games to the vita without updating? I have a ps3 but its got CFW and banned online.

    Your basically saying to him it will never happen to him so go ahead and update WTF, which is lies and you know that! there is a web exploit available now for Vitas below 3.18 which he could of tested and found out for himself, he is new to this and asked if staying on 3.18 would benefit for his vita for the future which the correct answer is YES not NO!

    Thats not what I said. I said that nobody knows for sure if there will be a hack avaible in the near future.

    That´s also not entirely correct. Yes there is a exploit.
    Which currently does...nothing. As of now, it`s only a proof of concept.
    Nobody knows for sure if there ever will be exploit avaible that will enable one to play backups on the vita.
    I told him that he could:
    A Wait for a exploit, while not being able to download games from the PSN.
    and
    B Update and buy the games, so he could play now.
    Temp seems to magically attract the most incapables trolls of the web.

    Your answer just now totally contradictes what you told him up above:-

    A/ It´s up to you. IMO letting a Vita gather dust while waiting for someone to release a native hack isnt worth it.

    B/ A Wait for a exploit, while not being able to download games from the PSN.
    and

    What ever you say and tell me you know very well you and others on the thread could of made a big cock up for someone who may of had a chance at a Native Hack on there PSVita!!! End Off!

    Edit: also if a native Hack was released next week by a Dev for Vitas on FW3.18 and below, what would you be saying then????

    Yes now that is clever thinking and well acted on! its just a shame for the guy that started this thread and was on FW3.18 and wanted to know the exact same comment you've just made, which could of been exactly what you want to do and me and lots of others on FW3.18 over at Wololo.net/, which will be very soon I'm sure, shame about silly members giving out bad advice to newbies!!! :(

    Edit: I mean my PSVita is not sitting on FW3.01 for nothing, which has been proved otherwise over at Wololo.net/ :lol:

    I'm sure Mech who is in the know all about the PSVita scene will back me up on this ridiculous thread 110%, I mean fancy telling someone who had a Vita on FW 3.18 that really did not know, not to bother waiting and basically update!!! :wink:

    Edit: I'm ruling Enigma Hall out of this because his comment was correct its just a shame it came one comment to late :(

    I mean the poor geezer if he had a PS3 he could of used the PSN Store if that's what he really wanted and did whatever he wanted through his PS3 straight to his PSVita, shame once again but I'm just ranting on now in frustration so that's it I'm done :(

    Im with you pal, if hes come off 3.18... as of right now hes pretty much wasted a vita if hes into the whole CFW thing, being on here i take it he was. Only rotten sods will tell you to update past 3.18.

    If you are not on the latest firmware and want PSN store you can just transfer stuff over from your PS3 when purchased. The Vita is going to be amazing when its broken open.

    DONT UPGRADE PAST 3.18

    If the exploit was patched in Vita's 3.30, does this kernel exploit include Playstation TV's 3.20?

    3.20 is the same as 3.18 when it comes to the playstation TV so you will be ok, i went for asian one on 3.18 as i didnt know the EUR/US one would come with a compatible firmware and it did ;)
