I bought a used hacked Vita recently, and it seems like the previous owner set up some things wrong, such as placing plugins in ux0 and using AutoPlugin. People on the HENkaku Discord server advised me to delete Autoplugin and AutoPlugin II and the plugins in ux0, but I'm wondering if there's anything else he may have done that'll interfere on my experience.

For example, I'm having an issue where I get a warning saying that I cannot earn trophies when I start up some games, such as Rayman Origins, and it seems that what's causing this is the Simple Account Switcher homebrew he used. Is it ok for me to just log into my PSN account or I should delete his id.dat and any other remains of his account? Also, Uncharted seems to be running at a much slower framerate than it should, at least when compared to YouTube walkthroughs. Is it worth it to manually fix all of this stuff or I should just start from scratch, and are there any files I should make sure to backup? Both h-encore² and enso apps are on the homescreen, and there's a henkaku option in the system settings, system version is 3.65 + two japanese characters.

@ZabusaMomochi i too received that message,in the settings in henkaku you set spoof version to 3.73?However,many users say that Autoplugin and Autoplugin2 create problems,i have been using it since modding my PS Vita,the only thing is that the plugins go in ur0 and not in ux0,and many are necessary.

Don't bother with Autoplugin, VitaDeploy (except for installing a particular firmware, it's f**king GREAT for that) or anything like them. Everything can be done through simple copy/paste and a little typing. I've noticed that, when it comes to Vita, at least, lots of the installer apps just kinda suck.
Also, you don't have to keep any of the stuff the previous owner did. Hacking the Vita and getting yourself on a firmware that does what you want is super easy. Just factory reset that bad boy and start over.
I kid you not, you can probably have your Vita wiped, rehacked, and all the plugins you want in about 30 minutes. I've been messing around with my Vita a lot lately, breaking sh*t, and the worst part is rearranging the icons after I'm done.

I'd suggest you to reset completely your vita for 3 reasons :
- vita hack is easy and short probably 1 hour long (my experience) or less
- I'd suggest to get the 3.60 not 3.65 since it's more compatible with whatever the scene is working on (games, patches, ...)
- and last but not least you'll have a complete clear mind when it comes to your vita.

@wassin8 ,wrong, 3.65 is better because if you want to use VitaCheat Z06 it doesn't work on 3.60.

    not sure. I haven't had that issue. the only computer related issue I've been having is with my isp and the smtp server getting authentication errors randomly. I'm going to have to call them again. this started happening again after changing my password.

    you may have to check the box that says "stay signed in." psx place used to have a problem like this for random people, including myself. that will prevent being logged out or it did anyway.
