    I downlaoded henkaku when it came out so I still have it in the home menu. Does the new update prevent me from activating it in the browser? Am I still able to use it?

    You can still use the browser without updating.

    And If I want to download games from psn, I have to do the QMCA trick with the ps3 right? Will I be able to download the DLC and updates too?

    You'll be able to get anything that's on the PS Store. So, DLC yes but probably not game updates. I doubt there will be many updates at this stage.

    Do the downloaded games from the psn store come pre patched with updates? I never bought games from the psn store, just physical.

    My gut feeling is no, I doubt they update the downloadable files whenever there is an update.

    Honestly, this is just a compromise you're going to have to make.

    I guess I'll leave my vita on 3.60 for a few months to see if the scene grows tremendously with more emulators and apps. If it doesn't I guess I will have to update or buy a new vita or a pstv.

    When I transferred Muramasa Rebirth Engl (PS+ title) to my Vita via PS3 (since I'm on 3.51), the game transferred and after that it automatically downloaded a 30mb file While it was still connected to the PS3. I guess that was a game update.

    Also you can update games on lower FW Versions (it doesnt need to sign in to PSN). But for DLC and games you need to transfer it with your PS3.

    yeah but think of it this way - sony's memory cards are expensive, with blackfin we can use micro sd cards (right?) - so, it wouldn't be so bad to use it to store the games on, so long as with new hacks we don't need to do that authentication stuff via online.
    if we could use it like sky3ds, it may be worth the price.

    For the QMCA trick, do I need the vita update blocker or no? I never tried this. I have a ps3 on the latest firmware.

    aha ok, so just like 3ds, we can't decrypt it (the eboot) without the key that we only get when we buy the content...?
    although - the key would also be present in the cartridge, yes? (unlike 3ds games)
    i have a cfw ps3 but i never looked into how it all works (rif files etc)

    I still think is dumb the updates for games aren't already on the store server, it should just be already done..

    Buy game
    Download game
    Start game
    Get update, quit game, update game
    Then play.

    It should just be

    Download

    START PLAYING WITH THE LATEST UPDATE.

    The only reason why i can guess this is not the case is that games and update and dlc data are in seperate folders for it to function so that is only reason why it probaly isn't the case.

    If you are using a regular Vita you dont need Update Blocker. Just keep the Vita in Airplane mode (if the Vita wants to update check "offline mode" in the QCMA settings).

    If you are using a Vita TV however you need Vita Update blocker for syncing over WiFi.

    they are update 'patches', which is much nicer than the developers/sony having to push a full update of the game (maybe a few gb big sometimes) - just because of some new dlc, or a little big fix.
    unless it's a game breaking bug or something important (like how mario kart comes with 1.1 built in)

    Thanks, also, if I want to know how to do the trick, I just search QCMA trick on google and it will give me a guide on how to do it? Another question, is it true sony will ban me for using henkaku? I used TNV previously for 2 months and never got banned.

    we don't know, but sony is strict, always expect a ban, and be happy if you are still ok.

    I'm fairly sure that there is not a single norse legend where Thor bans someone from PSN.
