    I've seen varying information about so I'd though I'd ask before trying anything, is their any exploit for firmware 3.55?

    Check wololo.net. They specialize in all the vita hacks. But I did see on there that metal gear solid: portable ops was the most recent exploit game. Check the psn to see if it's still up there

    I think that was Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus and is JP only region. There's also Mimana Iyar Chronicle which is US and JP. EU PSN accounts are SOL ;-)

    Portable Ops exploit is for JP region only, and Mimina Lyar Chronicles has been pulled from all PS Stores. Mimina hasn't been pulled. You just have to buy it from the online store on your PC. Thanks, Teh Cupcakes! :)

    Basically, your screwed. :unsure:

    Unless you really really like Remote Play and PS Now, in which case 3.55 is currently the one to have. My Slim on 3.55 hasn't been switched on in a couple of weeks though, so that's the extent of my opinion on a non-exploited console...

    I don't believe the game was ever available in Europe. US and JP only, and it's only available through the web store. That's what all the guides say from the day the exploit was released.

    I guess I could perhaps make my PSTV's language English(US) and it would connect to the US Store. Would that work?

    The language setting has nothing to do with the region of a PSTV. You would need to register a US PSN account, then factory reset your PSTV so you can sign in to the US account. However, unlike the PS Vita, I hear that the PSTVs do have some region restrictions. I think the whitelists are region-specific, and are actually tied to the hardware's region rather than the PSN account's region. Thus, I'm not sure if an EU PSTV would be able to play US games... (Digital or physical.)

    PSTVs aren't region locked.
