    Hello, I wanted to clarify how can I start using VHBL on these versions. (currently on 3.51) I know there was an exploit with the toukiden japanese demo, which has been taken down. Any other way??

    the demo is back up but you need to do the ps3 swap trick otherwise you will end up with the patched version.

    So does this mean there is zero exploits for 3.52? I just got a used vita slim from gamestop. Apparently all my local gamestops updated all the used and new in stock to the newest firmware. Something with Sony wanting any below with firmware 3.52 updated or recalled from their stores. So they updated them all.

    3.52 is still pretty new and has zero exploits currently. No PSP mode, no TN-anything, no VHBL, no homebrew, nothing. Even 3.51 only had an exploit via a JPN account, and that was only for VHBL. I don't know if hackers have just stopped caring about PSP mode exploits now that coding stuff for the Vita is actually possible, or if it's just getting more difficult to find openings. I'm guessing it's a bit of both.

    It probably is both, there is quite a few PSP mode vhbl exploits working on 3.52 but its been kept secret and away from the public, Zett himself confirmed that for me on twitter but i don't think we will see any exploits for a while now or if we do, you will have to grab the game fast as it seems likely that releasing them is becoming a lot less common.

    is that so nothing like what happened with Coldbird before happens ? or just so Sony doesn't update again ?

    There is no way to get the psm or psm unity on 3.52 since its blocks both, so you just have to wait right now for native hacks or buy another at lower firmware (preferably @ 3.18 but 3.35-3.51 will work)

    No. There is a chance a native hack could work on 3.52 and above, but there is an equally as good chance that it could only work on a particular firmware and lower. My crystal ball is broken, so I can't tell you if there is a magic firmware number, but don't be surprised if one day a native hack does come and you're already on too high of a firmware to utilize it.

    Btw Nathan , in 3.52 Sony removed PSM , or to be more specific "revoked" it , right ?
    than why when i go to system settings there is still a PSM option avalible ?
    it looks like this :

    is there any reason for this menu to exist if PSM was revoked ? i don't get it

    Probably because Sony is lazy. You can't actually install PSM anymore, so any leftover system options are largely irrelevant.

    Sony disabled PSM on 3.52. That was the entire purpose of the 3.52 update. If you had PSM, it won't work. If you try to get PSM, it won't install no matter what you try.
