    You can install reF00D and all games will work, without the need to install individual compatibility packs and regardless of firmware requirements.

    Well, we may have an unexpected turn of events here. The title being blacklisted in 3.72 may not be true after all, TheFloW has taken somebody else's word and believed him.


    Considering how things are going, I'll wait before updating the OP to reflect this just in case there may be another debunk or confirmation later on.

    Sony forgets at this point almost everyone with interest in cfw have their Vita already hacked. So this doesn't have significant impact.

    Although it looks like this is the case, I simply want to wait a bit more. Better safe than sorry.

    Ah my bad didn't see that comment. Just assumed you didn't know because you hadn't updated the OP yet.

    I did however find this video whilst doing further research. It does show that the exploit being patched but whether you want to take the dev's word or video evidence is up to you.

    I'm conflicted. There is video evidence to show it's been blacklisted but the dev himself says that it still works.

    I wish TheFloW would stick to his morals and wait to release these exploits. Because as we can see Sony will not let the VIta die just yet. Oh well I already have a modded Vita 1000 and PSTV but I would not mind to softmod a 2000. Oh well the wait continues.

    Somebody made a tutorial for it on 3.72! Granted it's in Spanish but there's evidence it does work.

    I think it's safe to update the OP now as there is evidence it does work.

    The video you linked was recorded by what appears to be the same guy that fist mentioned the 3.72 blacklisting. You know what that means.
    Anyway, there's enough evidence about the exploit working now, so I'll update the OP.
