Hey guys, I have a PS Vita on 3.15.
1. is it still hackable even though I have not yet purchased a hackable game
2. Am I safer upgrading to 3.36 and buying patapon 2?
Thanks

If you have a OFW ps3, you can transfer an exploit game (for your specific firmware) to your vita that way so you don't have to update the vita.

AFAIK, 3.36 blocks ability to duplicate bubbles so you can have individual live bubbles to launch specific homebrew directly. It only gives you 1 vhbl bubble to launch your homebrew through.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong

once you have VHBL and FTP installed you can dup your games for coustom bubbles but it is a bit of a pain in 3.36 im on it and it can be a pain

Thanks for the replies guys! I messed my first post up completely! I have access to 2 ps vitas one on version 1.69 and the other on 3.01 !!
Should I upgrade to 3.15-18 or is it hack-able on a lower version also are the games required still on the PS Store and not patched? eg. Patapon 2?
Thanks

I believe exploit games aren't patched, the firmware is patched to block these exploits. So yes these exploit games are still up on psn, just use a ps3 to buy/download, then transfer to vita.

There is a webkit exploit for the vita side of things that only works on lower vita firmware (I think it only works on 3.18 and below). So if you want access to that, I wouldn't update. That's if anyone is actually working on this exploit still. Kinda like the Wii U exploit...it's been discovered but I'm not sure anyone is actually doing anything with it...at least publicly.

Also I should make sure you know that these exploits are only used for the psp side of the vita. Just to allow you to play psp homebrew, emulators, and ISOs on your vita.

But anyways, I just checked psn and patapon 2 is still up. So it's up to you what you want to do. Personally I have vitas on lower firmware then I have 1 that I keep updated so my options are open incase native vita hacks do get developed.

Oh and The_Zett has made charts showing which exploit games work on what firmware. You could try his site zload.net (has been down for the last few weeks), or you could check out his twitter for the charts. You might have to dig back into his pictures a bit but I know they are there.

Best of luck, hope I was some help. Have fun!
