    Just need some opinions. I am on 3.18, and have TN-whatever installed, and have basically let it gather dust. I used it to play FF Tactics for a bit just because I couldn't figure out how to transfer my save to my legit copy on the Vita. Now there are new digital only games I wish to purchase. (Children of Mana springing to mind) I have no way to play new games, and I don't use the hack. Just frustrates me to ditch the hack after so long. Thoughts?

    Or just keep the ps vita as is and either buy another one or a ps tv.

    From what i saw it was from 2014 and it required a hardmod. Haven't heard anything on it since.

    I would just update it. Honestly if you just want to play the current Vita games on it and use the network features, just do it, the hack doesn't really bring that much to the table imo. Without a native hack you probably won't miss anything.
    I also wouldn't buy a second Vita just to maintain the hack or wait for a native hack(if that ever comes at all).

    There is the option of the cobra black-finn system for ps vita though which does not work on firmware 3.60 last time i checked on this. I see what you mean though.

    Save a 3.18 Vita in the wild for someone that wants Rejuvinate and TN-X if you can't afford buying a new one in addition.

    You can. It is under the PSP save area.
