    Good evening, so one day my vita stopped being detected by my pc(won't even show up on windows device manager or charge through usb), i've tried the next methods without any result:

    -rebuild database
    -format memory card
    -system restore
    -different cable
    -different pc
    -qcma

    the odd part of all this is that charging to ground works and whenever i press select to run usb mode in vitashell it "works"(the "connected through USB" message shows up but i'm still locked).

    Any way to fix this?

    You can try re-installing henkaku.

    1)Reboot your vita to disable henkaku.
    2)Reactivate it by going to the website
    3)Keep the R button pressed so it reinstalls the program instead of just reactivating it.

    You will have to re-add any plugings you have installed to the text file since it will be overwritten with the default one tho.

    Kept the R button pressed and it didn't install molecular shell(had to format because the console didn't want to restart henkaku), same situation, not detected at all(as in, not detected by qcma and "couldn't connect to PC")
