    Hey guys, currently attempting to play a few VR games on 7.02 (using sleirsgoevy.github.io host), and the console is telling me "Update the System Software to use Playstation VR" as soon as I turn the thing on.

    If I remember correctly, this wasn't an issue on 6.72 using Leeful's host, because it spoofed the VR firmware, I'm assuming.

    Just curious if this is possible for 7.02 yet? Thanks for any advice!

    Edit: I do have Al Azifs DNS set up with a custom network connection, if that makes a difference.

    Bumping because I have another question.

    I was told VR can't be spoofed unless you're using HEN 2.1.3b. Is this true? And if so, are there any 7.02 hosts that use 2.1.3b? The ones I've attempted don't get rid of that VR update nag. I'm feeling a little lost here lol

    This gosh this is probably one of the most confusing things I have encountered. I will try to give you the definitive answer here and people feel free to copy and paste it for others.

    Ok here goes. Try to stay with me.

    To start just some basics ok.

    There are 2 versions of psvr. I actually happen to own both of them. They as of 01/24/2021 both work with either a retail ps4 on 8.01 (took my retail ps4 offline for reasons no clue about on 8.03 but should be fine and I could go on psn till sunday with the 8.01 still). I have had reliable users give me info that you could also still switch between a ps5 and your jailbroken ps4 as well. With that said I highly recommend that you do not share you psvr with a retail console whether it is ps5 or ps4 because I am almost positive that at some point you will end up losing that ability. But to each their own.

    So now to the good stuff. How do you use it. Well I know alot of people dislike Salt but in my humble opinion Salt has the best 7.02 menu and it does have hen 2.1.3b. Here is a video I made with some more info.



    I will add since this video was made that the exploit does now work for me offline cache as well.

    Ok so now you have your exploit and now you have a spoof so what's my next steps? Well it depends on the firmware installed on the psvr and what exploit you load. I have done limited testing on 7.02 of psvr and extensive testing on 6.72 of psvr.

    So first thing you should do is check the firmware the psvr is running.

    Alot of people confuse updating the psvr (which is safe) with updating their ps4 (which is not safe). So make sure your ps4 is offline. That you ran update blocked. That when you go to notifications that you don't have a pending update there if you do delete it. I am giving you these instructions to ensure you don't accidentally update your ps4 which would be terrible. But the prompts are completely different. If you connect a psvr to a ps4 on 7.02 and your psvr firmware is below 4.10 I imagine it is going to ask you to update the psvr. I believe this is what you are experiencing. The ps4 system itself will update the psvr for you. As long as you are playing games which are playable on 7.02 firmware there is no reason you should be prompted to update the console unless you are online and have a ps4 update pending (again remember do not confuse psvr upate with ps4 update). But you should not have such a message if you followed above instructions. It is hard to follow you because we don't have a pic of the screen you are getting but I believe you are explaining you have connected a psvr with firmware lower than 4.10 and the console is asking you to update the PSVR FIRMWARE NOT YOUR PS4 FIRMWARE but that is hard to tell.

    So there is like a PSVR firmware check and a PS4 firmware check right? The spoofer is for the PS4 FIRMWARE check NOT the PSVR firmware check. Kinda confusing right?

    Now the video I provided has a link to night king exploit which does have a spoof! Ain't I great? Yeah I know I know. Anywho. What you could do in YOUR case is try that spoof. Still getting same message? Made sure you were offline? That you deleted any updates for PS4 firmware in notifications. Well check your psvr firmware I imagine that it is below 4.10. In which case go ahead and update that bad boy!

    Unlike 6.72 hen b on 7.02 works perfect with psvr. So in your case the instructions you are being given are only confusing you sadly. So much bad info. So once you update the psvr firmware you should actually be golden!

    I just want to include the explanation for 6.72 users here cause it's a little different. On 6.72 if you have a psvr with firmware below 5 example 4.10 you MUST turn on the PSVR before launching the exploit and hen b otherwise you will get an error and the psvr will turn off. If you turn on the psvr and then exploit it actually works fine. If your psvr is above 5.00 psvr firmware on 6.72 hen b will never work for you no matter what you do. You have to use regular hen 2.1.3. I hope this makes sense to people! Good luck!

    I eventually got it going, thank you for the advice!

    I'm running into another issue, sadly. Gran Turismo. It's throwing out an error "Cannot continue further with sign in to PSN"
    Would the offline account activator work in this situation? Or is there another workaround?
