    Doesnt hurt to keep it, eventually 3.71 will be moddable. In the meantime you should still be able to use vita half byte loader vhbl, for psp emulators and homebrew so you will have something for the system at least.

    Regarding the region-free stuff.
    Technically Vita is region-free but stores aren't... kinda...
    You CAN play (J) (U) (E) games on the same Vita but you have to have 3 accounts to do so, that's the only "requirement" of sort.
    Besides that yes, Vita is region-free.
    The irony region-lock was invented by... Nintendo and had a little different purpose back in the NES area, it was to combat the NES-fakes.
    How region-lock survived to this era is beyond me... At least Sony realized that full out region-lock is stupid idea at some point...

    EDIT #1
    I forgot Asian region and probably some others but the rule is the same for them, additional account for that region and you're set.

    I avoid this by explicitly telling sellers that I cannot have it updated and can’t use it if they do so.

    I got a CECHA PS3 that was professionally reballed a week after 4.83 dropped and I was 100% sure there would be no chance that it would have that firmware as it was new and boy was I wrong. I did not ask the seller first so they updated it to 4.83 before shipping it out.

    It worked out in the end since I played the waiting game until 4.84 could install CFW since I did not want to open the console at all for hardware flashing.

    if you want to run the 3.71 exploit, just open the web browser and type "192.168.1.192:8000" on it

    For folks that ended up on 3.71 one way or another, theFlow just updated h-encore with support from 3.65-3.71.
    (Please protect yourselves from future software updates)

    I guess Sony will pull the game as soon as they read his post.

    I'm honestly surprised they haven't already.
    Sony was fine with pulling the plug on PSP games in the past when those were shown to be exploitable, what makes this demo so special?

    On another note though;
    I imagine the big reason Bitter Smile was picked as the exploit game was because it's DRM-free.
    So even if Sony were to pull the plug, we wouldn't need to grab it from their servers to still use it.
    Someone would just need to host the .pkg elsewhere.

    Normally it takes Sony a few days to pull games from the store, they never instantly take them down.

    It was only revealed an hour ago. I doubt they are constantly hitting f5 on gbatemp. The UK is on a public holiday today, it's night time in japan and they'll only just be rolling into work in the US.

    Right, but Bitter Smile has always been the app used for h-encore since it first came out in June 2018.
    It's odd that over a year later it still hasn't been pulled from their CDN.

    I mean, Sony never permanently removes games from their store? It's usually just a temporary removal while the "initial" hack wave goes through, then they put it back on. I'm pretty sure it'd be against dev/publisher contracts for them to permanently remove a game from their store for no reason other than "someone uses it for hacks!"

    It is odd if this is the exact same pkg as was used before. Did they ever temporarily pull it?

    I do wonder if sony are trolling for exploits on the vita to educate them on their new console. I doubt they particularly care about the vita now.

    My bad then, I was under the impression that removal was permanent.


    I never heard of it being pulled, I'm not sure that it was or wasn't.

    Nope, back when ePSP CFW stuff was the hot new thing they only ever removed the games for a few weeks, or until they released a firmware update to fix the exploits.
