    Hi guys i was bored and found this:
    Turn off ur vita
    Hold:
    PS+select+L+powerbutton +start for 10-15 secs (screen will remain black)
    Release
    Boot normally vita
    If it works: Instead of normall to-livearea it will ask you to set date and time (clock has been reseted)
    I dont know what this keycombo do.
    (I think it disconnect battery for a while)
    Or just resets clock
    UPDATE1: It seems that this keycombo disconnects battery for a while. The time of holding the combo may vary (try even 20secs) if the bootscreen appear (when holding combo) it means that the combo wasnt applied, try again.
    UPDATE2:After keycombo (not reboot yet) it sends some packets/requests to pc (if connected) which are different from normal vita turned off

    After boot it should ask for date time:

    Maybe this will be helpful:

    Got it working, after turning off the console I put in the key combo and held it. The PS logo popped up but I kept holding and it shut off, I continue to hold until I have held the combo for 30 seconds total. Then it boot up as you described! Nice find

    So its a key combo that acts like Power + Volume Down on Android to simulate a battery pull?

    The main issue is it will not sleep, instead shuts down. Another is that it will just cut off, although it hasn't done that in about a month. I initially thought it was a bad battery, so I replaced it with a brand new battery yet the issue persists.

    Would it be recommended to do this with the device plugged in? Or is it a quick install?

    The device can be plugged in (no to pc but to electricity).
    The vpk itself takes bout 129mb.
    Remember to set spoof to 3.53 and forget all wifis

    So to be clear I need to change what henkaku is spoofing from 3.65 to 3.53, disable WiFi, forget all connections and then run the installer?

    Successful re installation, I'll come back and give an update after playing for a while.
    UPDATE:
    everything seems to work fine now, it sleeps and hasn't cut off on me yet!
