    1.) can I access psn store if I have a hacked vita? will it revert to official vita firmware if I access the store?
    2.) if I have a hacked vita can I play adhoc party for psp?
    3.) Can I update the firmware and keep the exploited firmware backed up to my pc? will cdma delete the exploited game on my pc?
    4.) lets say the exploited game wasnt pacthed on a newer official firmware will I be able to acces the psn store/Game that has multiplayer safely and go online? also can I go online for vita

    First off I would like to clarify that there is no Custom Firmware for the Vita yet, only the PSP portion has been hacked.

    1. Yes and no. If you've hacked your Vita on the latest firmware you will be able to access the store until an update is released. There have been solutions in the past like using VPNs to access the store on lower firmware, but those are removed really fast. Your Vita will ask you to update, so nothing is done automatically.

    2. To my knowledge, yes. You can play adhoc.

    3. Yet again: No firmware is hacked. The hack is more or less temporary since you have to start the exploit game everytime you want to use the hack. You can backup the game and exploit save, but you will lose the exploit if you update your Vita since the exploit will be patched.

    4. The known exploits will always be patched. You can however access PSN/Multiplayer safely in the short time that the exploited firmware is the newest one as the exploit isn't permanent and does not effect the Vita portion of your PSV. You won't get banned.

    First off I recommend reading my FAQ: http://gbatemp.net/threads/playstation-vita-hacking-news-overview-faq.341851/

    If you bind the same account that you used on your PSP on your Vita you will be able to redownload those games, no hacking is needed.

    Exactly, though I wouldn't really call them rom files. They are digital versions of the game that you bought on your PSN account, therefore they are bound to that account. That's why you can redownload them for no charge.
