    hi all,
    um I was wondering if it is possible to revert your vita's off back to and older off using an older backup you made at a certain period?

    etc.
    I made a backup of my vita system etc when it was in 3.01 fw in 2013,
    and I made a new backup of my vita in 2017 which is at 3.63 fw.

    if I restore my older backup (2013) will it revert my system fw back to what it was in 2013?

    not sure if this is possible just wanted to see if it works or not.
    cause I found my 2013 ps vita backup that I made left on my Mac from 2o13 when it was at 3.01 fw.

    thanx

    CMA doesn't backup firmware, it backs up games and apps. This will do nothing.

    oh I see, okay thanx.

    lol, thought so.
    I wonder if the "henkau enso" in 7.29 will be for 3.63 users aswell?
    or just for 3.60 henkau users.

    I checked to find a ps vita for henkau, but they are all gone from my country, lol only games like the wii,
    you can find the games but not the console.

    I'll stick with 3.63 if a hack comes out at one point.

    If you're handy with taking things apart you could always replace the motherboard with a 3.60 one. They're extremely cheap (like $30-$60 depending on the model) and are fairly easy to replace.
