So awhile back I downgraded my firmware to 3.60 and installed Hankaku so I could have a coldboot hacked Vita instead of having to launch H-Encore every time and to avoid some issues I had with deep freeze mode. My plugins seem to be working and I can use my SD2Vita okay only some games cause my entire system to lock up and they won't launch. I have to force restart the system as it won't even turn off properly. These aren't pirated games wither. They're legit games I have on my account. Some of the games I can't get to work are Letter Quest: Remastered, Cosmic Star Heroine, Squares, and Street Fighter X Tekken I think . Some are purchases and some are PS Plus games. I'm not banned from PSN and my PS Plus subscription is active. To add another complication my Vita would no longer recognize my legit memory card after the firmware downgrade, so I worry if I disable plugins or mess with certain things I'm screwed and cart games are totally out. I don't receive any error messages in the games. I made sure that game patching/decryption aren't the issue. I've also tried adjusting my default clock settings in Lolicon. Currently my default is config 4 and I'm not sure if that's causing the issue. Thank you for your help! Let me know if I can provide any additional info.

Edit: I don't think how recent the game is has anything to do with it. P3D and P5D work great.

Are you sure? refOOD seems to be working fine. I'm not getting the error message I usually get when a game is on a higher firmware and can't launch. I'll try it though and report back. Autoplugin a good enough method for reinstall?

I uninstalled and the reinstalled reFOOD. I made sure to put the reFOOD line in ur0 and ux0 tai config but they both point to ur0 and they're directly under nonpdrm.skprx
I'm still having the same issue as before. I kn ow reFOOD is working because I can launch the Nonaray Games collection and specifically Virtue's Last Reward which is above my firmware.
I tested with Cosmic Star Heroine and it still won't boot.

Get rid of the config in ux0:tai and reboot.

Alright. I did that but I'm still having the same issue. Zero Escape launches okay but my other test game Cosmic Star Heroine still won't boot and I have to force restart when attempting to boot it. Are there any plugins I should watch out for that might be creating a conflict?

I downloaded them directly from the playstation store. My Vita may be hacked but I still purchase games to support the Vita and the developers who make games for it.

Yeah. Some of my games are legit and some are pirated. I've tried using pkgj to download games I've bought to see if they'd run that way but so far no luck. I'm trying to reinstall Cosmic Star Heroine right now to see if its a bad install but I've tried that many times to no avail. You never know though. Also thank you guys for all the help so far. Sorry for all the trouble.

Edit: Both of the games I'm using for my tests are legit and were obtained through the Platstation Store.

can you post the games that are legit you are testing and if there pirated or not pirated and also if the non-working games if you can and want. i'm not sure how to do this stuff but maybe a list would be helpful for other's to figure out.

install reFOOD from autoplugin, and delete all plugins and config file from ux0:tai, then restart, I guess this will resolve the issue

For me 3.68 henkaku version is better because it far more likely not to brick your handle console.
because enzo permanent...

and more compatibility because is higher firmware with a good henkaku version...

For example: on a 3.68 tai config not always on. And if you soft brick your console probability small because the o.g firmware is untouched and if so it will not going to activate the mod in safe mode... so it is easier to restore via firmware/data ux....

Don't forget ref00d needs key file.

Setup correctly 3.60 is the most compatible with homebrew and commercial games. I wish it wasn't so, I normally prefer being on the latest of everything.
