    Hi there

    today i got a ps vita kiosk a.ka. Demo mode on fw 3.73

    h-encore 2 installed without problems

    sucessfully could change it to retail via idu-mode.vpk

    But when i did the downgrade to 3.60, when the console restarded got stuck at ps logo forever

    tried to enter recovery mode from all the ways but nothing happens , no menu at all

    any ideas?

    I don't know if you can downgrade a kiosk system, but do you know if the system could even downgrade that far back? I think it will brick if you do so and the system came with higher than that from the factory.

    I've been on idu mode with the vita before on my retail system. iirc, the system will power off after five minutes unless it's plugged in? it used to be part of the way to install pkgs (the smallest possible demo for adrenaline), which I wrote a tutorial on. quite complicated, but not necessarily difficult. anyway, I reverted back. and, I have downgraded from 3.65 to 3.60 as well. from what I understand, 3.73's downgrade process seems to be unstable, because there are a lot of people who've reported bricks. I believe they're fixable, but I'm not sure what that process is.

    Hi there!

    Thanks to all for your advices! first i let the battery drain, and then with a little charge i tried to enter on recovery mode and voilá!!!

    Then i followed your link and the ps vita is alive again!!

    i restored to ofw 3.73 using the PC, and luckily it kept h-encore so i tried the downgrade again, this time with modoru 2.1

    Fingers crossed and now it´s on 3.60 with henkaku and all the other stuff!!

    Thank you all!!

    indeed. something seems to be unstable with the latest modoru. I only downgraded from 3.65 enso 365 (the first version with stuff on vs0) down to 3.60. I did that to both vita and pstv. no issues now, but I did have some difficulty originally. enso365 -- there's no tutorial for it, so I had to figure it out on my own.
