      who cares about first? how about something about the topic at hand? like a guide for those who do plan to update.. steps in removing eCFW from the Vita.

  1. fu says:

    i have a question.
    is it possible to change my us account to hk or jap account without updating 1.81?
    i have several accounts and if 2.00 is require for changing account.. it probably have to update

  2. wekwek says:

    There is a 30 day free PS+ trial once we update to fw 2.0?

  3. Jan says:

    third, not to update.

    imagine, you anticipated the exploit for the long time, 24/7 watch, then you will gonna update?

    for IMHO, ECFW is better…….

    thank you total noob and other devs for the ECFW..

  4. Warlord698 says:

    you forgot the pro of being able to wirelessly transfer files

  5. huz84 says:

    working keep gc tn-c 1.81 to 2.00 frezee? and wait look latest if can ecfw? or not To Update 2.00 tomorrow launch update

  6. alan says:

    unless sony choice to use android OS, so I can use my vita like a tablet; otherwise no plan to update.

  7. por says:

    Does someone know of it is possible to switch from a US to a EU account without updating??

  8. ROCKhard says:

    Don’t update there’s truly nothing that great about the new update unless the update allows you to fully play your ps3 games or even more cool letting you play ps2 games so with that in mind don’t waste your firmware loss.

  9. ils says:

    can i still play the free game when PS+ inactive ?

  10. NakedFaerie says:

    I”m staying on 1.81 and eCFW until there is a new OpenCMA and eCFW for 2.0. Till then Sony can get stuffed. I’m not going to pay multiple times for the same games so I need ISO support.
    I have UMDs and EBOOTS of games and they cant be transfered to the vita so I’m not going to buy them a 3rd time.

  11. mad8vad says:

    I’ll update. About 6 dollars/month is good for ability to always play games

  12. SARS1983 says:

    1.81 is good with iso

  13. Maxilus says:

    What free games they are offering? If there a good game, then I will update but.. will regret after that for the loss of ISO and Homebrew support. :(

    • idontknow says:

      well i already had enough of psp games. Moreover we can’t use that beautiful touch screen and back touch pad with eCFW for homebrew anyway. i waiting for native vita hack to be released :)

    • HIMFan says:

      The line up will change periodically to keep people interested.

  14. notder says:

    play psp game until satisfy and then update OFW lol

  15. kuagelo says:

    Someone’s definitely going to update to 2.0 – either willingly or not. Best wait for them to report about eCFW still being runnable. ^_^

    • stOneskull says:

      i’m happy to.. i’m looking forward to gravity rush through ps+.. the only thing i want to make sure of is removing all traces of eCFW from the vita first.. even if it means formatting the memory card

    • Ukdna says:

      Wow, imagine Sony releasing an update that ‘seems’ to run eCFW, then at a specified time, is programmed to break it. I’ll never update again unless its to Vita CFW

  16. Crimson says:

    No plan to update, still need to wait longer

  17. bash says:

    I think I’ll wait a just while for the upcoming kexploit … SKFU selling a vita devkit device, after digging in it ;-p ; and Total noob stopping with the just released TN C version (thanks to him )
    I must admit that there is too much clues for not update too quicly.
    Because if I were someone who explicitly say that ther is leak in the vita sdk, allowing running unsigned code, then I would wait for a major firmware release before releasing an exploit.
    But maybe I’m wrong …

  18. Ryan says:

    There is no point upgrading just for the few games they offer for psn + users and losing the ability to run ISOs

  19. bash says:

    Cos for sure that 2.0 update will bring a strict CMA cheking more deeply what you are trying to download on vita.
    And a firmware that will of course, just check the content of the memory card, now it knows where and what to delete without notice … hmmm?
    Making IMHO, a new exploited game useless with those freshly anti-free-vita-use’s tools.

  20. idontknow says:

    i’m not care about ISO so i will update mine .. 😀

  21. Kizu says:

    •Improved Web Browser – The web browser has been updated with better HTML5 support.

    Finally sony has done something useful for us…..

  22. StepS says:

    Cons:

    • Zero support for both audio and video under HTML5.

  23. Thewish says:

    Its time to release the last exploit if there is realy a exploit. So people without ecfw have a last chance to get homebrew before update 2.0 comes out. I finaly must update if there is no other exploit. So there is no decission for people like me without ecfw that bought the vita 4 days ago.

  24. Ukdna says:

    Remember all the exploits for psp (and currently PS3) that require downgrading to older firmware to use? That’s because the devs start a project on a certain firmware and often have to finish it on the same firmware. So Be patient! Dont drink the Sony Kool-aid of free PSN games, you only ‘own’ them as long as you subscribe to PSN. I’m guessing this means you have to have Internet connection to even launch those games?

  25. Andalia says:

    Everything I do is playing emulators, why update then, lol

      • TelgarDrakore says:

        Why would you even buy a PSVita with prices that high and unobtainable by you? Waste of money then, you should never have bought the system.

  27. MantarR says:

    What they need PDF the vita is a PDF document viewer. official or not…

  28. AshTerra says:

    I have an awesome evil solution here. I hope you guys are on this one. I have a theory:

    Ok, I got a PS3 Slim (not even hacked yet) and a Vita, planning on keeping the exploit hack.

    Since my PS3 is using a legit PSN account and full access to Playstation Plus, it also has the capabilities to download PS Vita titles from Playstation Plus, am I correct? Will I be able to copy the vita game content from my PS3 which I downloaded from Playstation Plus into my Vita?

    • Adin says:

      No, because you transfer you will need internet access on PS3 (and to download games) and when you transfer it will check firmware and see it is below latest and refuse transfer.

      • AshTerra says:

        So you’re saying a legit, unhacked PS3 can’t even do a backup/restore for an exploited Vita. Is that what you’re implying?

  29. AshTerra says:

    Maybe I forgot to mention my PS3 is on Full PSN(internet) and newest official Firmware. Do you mean when the transfer being done the PS Vita itself needs to go online via PSN just to copy the game?

    • HIMFan says:

      It doesn’t work that way. Period. But out of sheer curiosity you’re gonna try it anyway “Well what could it hurt to try. Hey, wouldn’t it be funny if it actually worked?!” And then you’ll try it, and it won’t, and sure you didn’t lose anything, but you just wasted a significant amount of time on it. More than the 15 seconds it took me to give you a longer version of “no” just to try to save your life.

    • TelgarDrakore says:

      Your not listening to a word we say. The PS3 is connected to the internet, and it will use the internet to check your Vita to see what firmware it is on. When the PS3 finds out the Vita is on an older firmware it will refuse the transfer. Your Idea can never work.

  30. thedicemaster says:

    I’m not going to need a mail app.
    my phone has a bigger screen than my vita, and it would mean having another bubble that can’t be removed.

    • sasuke1981 says:

      lol what? your phone is bigger than a 5 inch screen??? thats not a phone is a donkey cart XD…

      • thedicemaster says:

        Samsung galaxy note 2, 5.55″

        it's not very comfortable for 1 handed use but for 2 handed use its the most comfortable phone I've ever used.

  31. AshTerra says:

    Total_noob… Don’t call it quit. The final boss just arrived how can you not want it’s EXP and coins.. Lol (T_T)

  32. Jennifer says:

    don’t update support homebrew! on vita!

  33. Skars says:

    I’ll not update until I finish Metal Gear Peace Walker on vita, that is far better to play with two analog sticks than on PSP. Thanks for all developers and big thanks to Total Noob for his CEF TN-C, that I’ll enjoy to the bones before it dies on forced updates.

    The day that I’ll surrender on updates is only when a very desired game force me to. And I have no one in sight at the moment.

  34. DQEight says:

    so with ps plus, how can the wifi vita owners play on the go if you need an internet connection?

    • Skars says:

      What? Didn’t know that, its a kind of DRM? PS+ forces players to stay online if they want to play?

      Why people who pay for their games often got fu*k up while having isoldr is always more user friendly?

      In my point of view this is lack of respect from sony.

      I never used PS+, is that true? If yes, so, I’ll never use it for real.

  35. wartaf says:

    if my ecfw will be gone on this 2.0, i wouldnt update it! until there’s something new.

  36. Ramy says:

    What are the free games you get for ps+?

    • hammer says:

      different for europe but for north america
      uncharted ga
      wipeout 2048
      gravity rush
      jet set radio
      tales from space mba
      final fantasy tactics for psp

  37. jamesssss says:

    There is a solution to the PS+ “free games” issue…

    Get the 30 day trial and “buy” the free games on the PSN Store on your PS3 and let them download ready to transfer to a Vita (just make sure they show up in your history). Now they are in your bought history and your PS3.

    Once something more is known about the PS Vita firmware you can make an informed decision and you don’t lose out on these new games as you can download them when you like as long as you have a PS+ membership. There might even be a way to transfer them to the Vita using the PS3 at some point like people have been doing with Monster Hunter so don’t give up hope.

    The rest of the features are really not much use and the loss of eCFW for them would be disappointing unless you love PSN online play. I don’t like the auto update feature and the save to cloud feature probably doesn’t work without it like on the PS3.

    Good luck!

    • TelgarDrakore says:

      Your idea is not a solution, because the free games change every month. Your idea does not solve anything.

      • jamesssss says:

        No but if you have a PS3 with PS+ like a lot of users (including myself) do you are not losing anything.

        This way as long as you have got them in your history you can upload them at a later date once you know what the state of play is with firmware, as you know Sony cycle these games around and change them every few weeks (if we are lucky) so this way you get all the games ready for when the Vita can be hacked again and then load them up!!

  38. dan says:

    i have psone, dont need ecfw, isn`t the same playing RE3 or SILENT HILL on ps vita, as the psone connected to tv, comodity¿ just a cable between the console and tv, make me sick!

  39. adnan says:

    i sold my vita and now i m planning to buy it again but waiting 1 more year will give me new vita which will have update in its hardware more slim more powerful cpu ram and more brightness….

  40. Eric says:

    is there any update for phone features? like sending message on my network. bcoz i only recieved text message.. bcoz i want to use it as a phone. so COOL.

  41. quetz says:

    To not update until someone gets to know better the new OFW 😉 maybe it can be exploited as well, let’s hope

  42. Riku says:

    Wololo, I’d just like to point out that the facebook thing for a free month doesn’t work for US players. I tried it out, as well as many others.

  43. owanef says:

    FINALY OMG HTML5

  44. Reshiram says:

    Well I’m updating since none of you guys don’t know gamesharing is, and if I did do ut my psvita woulda beeeen hacked. So screw this damn wololo site

  45. ilostchild says:

    I have PSN PLUS on ps3 and sony said if you already have it you will get it with vita no need to buy separately, and i already updated aswell so i cant wait for the 2.00 firmware with FREE GAMES! 😀

  46. AshTerra says:

    The free 30 day games from PS+ kinda bugs me. Please explain further if anyone willing. After 30 days later, new set of games comes in PS+…so what will happen to the recent games that we’ve downloaded? Will it still be playable? Or decommissioned soon after it reach it’s free to play duration (30 days)? Or does it needs to be online everytime we want to play those PS+ games?

    • TelgarDrakore says:

      From what I’m reading everywhere you have to be online to play the free games, or at least to start them, and the free games become unplayable once the next months games come out. So basically its not “Free Games” which people need to stop calling it, its “Free RENTALS”.

    • hammer says:

      don’t listen to people who say you need to be online to play the free games.
      also you can play the free games for as long as you have a psn+ subscription,if you let you subscription lapse the games will be unplayable until you reup you sub.

  47. AlphaKiloCharlie says:

    I’m going to update, the only reason I would want to hack my Vita is to play Vita games which I am sure will happen one day but for now my PSP games can be run on my PSP’s (I have 2 2000’s and 1 bricked 3000). The update will help me since I can get some Vita games to play. I have 3 months of PS Plus left as of now, hopefully this will be worth it so I can continue paying for PS+

    • Zimond says:

      “the only reason I would want to hack my Vita is to play Vita games”

      Then you are the type of user the scene does not want and need.

      • wizardinblack says:

        no, the scene is for everyone. everybody in the scene wants something different, be it homebrew content, a custom fw or even free games. i know there are a lot of pirates among us, so just because somebody wants something different than you (or different from the majority for that matter) does not mean that they dont belong. dont speak on behalf of the scene.

        • ndh777 says:

          The problem is that freeloaders just want to freeload for the heck of it. When I was at the end of my piracy, I was only pirating stuff to see if it was good then I’d purchase it, but if it was ***, I wasn’t going to buy it. I’ll give him one thing, at least he is honest. I admit that I want to be able to run Vita ISOs too but for games that I legally own and want to use on another Vita or just not want to keep switching out the chips, or allowing my friend to play against me for a day… But the pirates really do hurt us when all people want is just a free game. Then developers look at the system and don’t want to make anything for it because people aren’t even going to buy it. That’s ultimately why the Vita library sucks as it is, is because of all of the freeloading that went on with the PSP and continues in the PS3. But I agree that we do have people on here like that. But that still doesn’t make it right especially that people just want free games and that’s it. I’m sure they’d be pretty upset if someone was stealing something from them that they worked hard for.

          • crypto says:

            so you’re saying, because the psp and ps3 was heavily pirated, the PSV has so few games, and those games are incredibly overpriced? Judging by your logic, as the PS2 and PSX was heavily pirated before PS3 came out, there should as few games for the PS3 as there are now for PSV? I’m feeling there isn’t really the real reason.

            The reason in my opinion for the PSV lack of games is because it’s a niche thing. Very few people i know in RL who could easily afford it are not interested in playing on a small screen, it’s just the way it is. Also Sony is very stubborn on promoting it to devs and the rest of the consumers.

            Remember that the PSP was very promoted by other means than internet (tv commercials, ads etc). The PSV is very obscure, and too few people know it even exists.

            Again, the games are incredibly overpriced. I’ve payd 300 usd for this console and a single AAA game is 50 bucks. Aw heck no, i’m not paying that much for a watered down game.

          • fpstps says:

            are you an idiot ??

            the xbox was pirated even more then the ps3 the ps3 piracy is restricted to a few million models world wide

          • ndh777 says:

            But how many people back in the day were hacking their Xboxes? Compare that number to those hacking their PSPs.

            Either way, developers take the stealing into account. If a system is known to have vulnerabilities versus one with next to none (speaking for corporate companies bent on making money), they choose the one with as little vulnerabilities as possible. It’d be suicide to release a product on a system that the majority of people are just stealing from. There are other reasons that the PSV doesn’t have a huge library, but people like Alpha cause the developers to think twice before releasing their hard work for a price on a system like the Vita. I don’t think that things like ISO readers shouldn’t be made just because of a few leeches, but the attitude shouldn’t be encouraged in the scene that we will just use loaders for games we didn’t buy.

        • I Agree i also want to play Psvita hacked games and psp iso, didnt we do the same with the Psp iso loader…

  48. Brandon B. says:

    The only thing I’ve really used the eCFW for was to load DLC for my Dissidia Duodecim PSN title that I normally play through my Vita anyways. I have hope that sooner or later, Sony will get around to letting us use PSP DLC without a PS3, or that somehow I will be able to enable it again – so it’s a very easy decision to update for those nice videos and an improved browser. 😀

  49. AyeGuy says:

    Depending on what the free games are I MAY update,but if the games suck then im staying on 1.81 a little longer

  50. GsyDonkey says:

    I am sticking with 1.81 and TN-C eCFW!

    I am not letting all their hard work go to waste!!

  51. dimy93 says:

    ++ Cons : There would be a disturbing feature called automatic update.I’m not sure how that would work but certainly it doesn’t seems nice

    • hammer says:

      psn+ for the ps3 has this as well, you can turn it on or off at will

      • D says:

        All automatic update does is download the update data during whatever time you set the system to check for updates (by default its something like 2-4AM). You still need to manually select “OK” to continue the update the next time turn on the system, or if you don’t want the update installed, don’t agree to it. You’re never forced or tricked into updating without knowing, you are required to agree to it.

  52. mystic shadow says:

    I’ll stay on 1.81 I like to play my old psp games and hoping for ps1 support idc for sound great work guys keep it up ^,^

  53. I love my ps vita running N64, SUPER NES,game boy advance , NEO GEO, cap com, mame, AND ISOS psp, i think i need buy this games, my memory has a 32 gb, you need a loot space for this 6 games, may be 25 gb where you can get this only buy a memory of 32 gb but i think is just a strategy of sony to dead the new hacks i don belive any more on sony mail sucks and i dont need mail.

  54. King says:

    well easy decision to make ,since I own 2 vitas ….
    2.0 update will be great is worth it to update and i suggest you guys to get a second vita !!

    • E says:

      Wow not a bad idea. Guess I just need some money now lol. I am surprised I did not think of that considering that is what i did w/ the PSP (I have like 6 of them lol).

  55. oreo says:

    Not updating I got GC and TN-C so I’m set until Killzone comes out.

  56. hammer says:

    I bought my vita for vita games and I already have 1 year of psn+ so this update is too good to pass up. Besides the hack I really want is the UVL

  57. x33hack says:

    1.81 till next exploit is ccoming to the vita thanks to that wonderful Dev´s Thank thanks thanks i can´t stop to say it

  58. Jonathan says:

    I’m still on 1.67, I only use it for a video player with open cma lol. If gamestop has some good used game deals I might grab a few hard copies and play 100% offline.

  59. Aardy says:

    My question. After the update to 2.0 Will the web browser support flash? I would like to be able to watch hulu and twitch.tv on my vita.

      • Aardy says:

        Thanks for the reply.

        And to Sony… You suck. My $20 mp3 player from walmart can play flash videos. Support your damn products.

        • ndh777 says:

          To be truthful, Flash is on its way out. The new Internet Explorer for the 360 doesn’t support it, iOS devices don’t either, and Adobe is pulling their app from the Google Play Store for Android devices. What we should really be waiting for is HTML5. Sony needs to get with the program and update the browser already with some features people actually want.

        • Prinny says:

          …You…do know it isn’t sony that doesn’t support flash do you? Before calling them dumb, research that Adobe no longer supports flash on handheld/mobile platforms. Your $20 mp3 player probably has it pre-installed before adobe stopped supporting it.

          • wololo says:

            Well, then Sony should support audio and video in their browser, like any other browser has done for the past 5 years now.

          • Aardy says:

            It doesnt matter what comes in the future, or if its adobe supported or not. I just want to watch the flash videos that 90% of all the internet uses, now not later. The vita is definitly capible of doing it.

            I dont care if its called flash, or java, or whatever. Is it to much to ask, to be able to watch hulu or twitch on my vita?

          • Prinny says:

            Wololo, html5 on the new browser may be (and I say may as I’m not exactly sure.) be able to play youtube html5 videos. Here’s hoping for that. Other websites, I doubt it though.

            @Aardy: Of course it does matter. Adobe pulling out does not let you watch those videos. 😐 So it’s not sony to blame but Adobe, once those sites that you ever so want to watch actually supports a html5 video player, you won’t be able to. The vita is capable of doing so no doubt, but it’s kinda hard to do so when the vita was born around the same time adobe pulled back its mobile flash support.

  60. Paul says:

    No PS3. No justification for PS+ for me.

    I am more then happy staying on 1.81 where I can play all my emulated games.

    This allows the Vita to actually have games worth playing instead of the depressing library that is growing at a snails pace with lackluster titles.

  61. Fantomphox says:

    i have an old psp2000 with cfw. i liked playing with the ecfw but really i like the vita for what it has. that mostly being psvita games. if i wanted pops games or psp games i have my old psp for that. (it does feel good in the hands having 2 real analog sticks for psp games though.) so i guess to conclude this fact. i’ll be updating to the 2.0 at least till there’s a real cfw for the vita.

  62. Ryan says:

    “…to be able to play the games we bought for the PSP on the Vita instead of buying them again.”

    I laughed hard at that…

    • wololo says:

      Want to compare my collection of legally purchased PSP games with yours?

      • Aardy says:

        Its funny in an ironic way. I have a dozzen leagaly purchased PSP games, that are useless to me. UMD hard copys that are just gathering dust. I shouldnt have traded in my PSP to get the Vita.

        • E says:

          That is why you own 6 of them :) And I agree w/ Wololo, it is absolutely frustrating that if we want to play our old games on the Vita we have to re-purchase the same games we already bought. It is completely asinine. And i hate the fact that Japan got the UMD Passport program to transfer their UMDs to digital format on the Vita. Completely bogus. I guess Sony figured that the US has so many Pirates that they would find a way to abuse it or something. But not everyone who has been on this seen for a while is a Pirate. Some just want to get the most out of our hardware because Sony does not seem to be doing it. -End Rant- lol

  63. Mr-Shizzy says:

    I would buy a second Vita before updating. No way would I ever give up my eCFW!!

  64. Jvhellraiser says:

    I will surely wait on 1.81, NO Flash-the update is not worth it.
    I really dont care about email i can check it with normal Psvita browser.
    “Sony” now u can twitt your adress (-_-) i dont give a #”‘% wheres copy/paste?
    sony really dont learn,and if the Psvita can play mp4 files why not make the browser
    load mp4 video files,1080p good, now what we need is for the video player to accept
    Other formats like mkv,rmb,xvid,avi etc,but NO!!! Like always Sony dont get it,so iam staying in FW 1.81 with TN-C for now.

  65. wartaf says:

    please sony! dont be harsh on us who using ecfw! 😀

    my ecfw is just only a month y.o. on me, i don’t update unless they don’t blocked the ecfw 😀

  66. Natsu says:

    To be or not to be that is the question
    -Shakespere

  67. AshTerra says:

    It sucks if you can only start playing the PS+ games via PSN online.. Cause I have the Vita Wifi version.. So basically I can’t play those games while i’m outside from any Wifi-comfort-zone. Seems like I’m gonna stick with eCFW cause I’m pretty confident someone will hack this new firmware. If not, what’s the use of this Forum?

  68. GigaGaia says:

    I hope the Vita itself doesn’t get hacked for at least a few years. Let the console actually get some life in it before you do it, which mean third party support, good games and a big fanbase.

    The Vita is not dead, but an actual hack to play vita games would really kill it.

    The games are only free if you stick with the plus subscription. So when the subscription is over you wont be able to play them. So i consider it as a con to be honest. Let’s see what happens next…

    this is the reason why i bought 2 vitas. one to keep legit and one to keep my eCEF. The real question is for me anyways, I cant decide which one I wanna keep eCEF on. I got the black 3g/wi-fi one, and the white assassins creed wi-fi only one. AS of now they are both running tn-c. guess ill wait a few days to read some posts on the new ofw, before i decide what to do. any thoughts on my situation? pls. reply

      Do you use 3G? If so, I’d say update that one because you can’t do anything of value (maybe browse the internet) unless the firmware version is update to date.

        I agree thats what i was leaning towards was my 3g one. Payed 6 months of the 30$ month plan and never used it, because it couldnt do what i was told by sony that it would do. I have a cell phone that does more than the 3g vita can do, what a waste on my end, i always think of how many games i could have bought with that wasted $ instead. Oh well we live and learn, was always kinda hopin there would be a hack that would unlock the sim card, and basically make my vita my new smartphone. Heres to hope and the future that something of that sort comes about.

    So do we get 30 days playstation plus when we update? Coz I already got 60 days because the shipment of the ac3 liberation pre order codes were delayed so an extra 30 on top of my 60 would be awesome.

    I really like VHBL and TN-C but honestly…I’m going to update because I just got Black Ops and love playing it online. If there was some way to keep my original firmware and keep playing online, I’d do it. I don’t really care for all that new *** Sony keeps talking about. “New Interface”…blah blah and really nothing else is new about it. If it was just the firmware, I wouldn’t even update. Then for homebrews, I haven’t had much time playing any homebrews or even uploading any ISOs. And on top of it, Sony made it really hard to add ISOs like me adding ROMs to my N64 Emulator. Sony should be glad they got Black Ops because otherwise, I would not be planning to update.

    auto update is for PS+ members and AFAIK it will only update if you set it to update like on the PS3. You set a time frame for it to perform the update, and it will automaticaly boot up, sign in, upload all your saves to to online storage, and update your games that need updates

    I dont use the vita exploit, i rather use my psp to play the games, and i dont see the 6 free games in the european plus store, but im still going tu update.

  75. Metalliphyll says:

    i have 2 3g/wifi models i will update my non ECFW one but i hope that there is an update to open CMA so i can still copy homebrews to my 1.81 ECFW vita

  76. starfall05 says:

    guys, i dont know if its mentioned already but i have read a very nice info on eurogamer.net that the web browser will now be considered as a “minor” app in ps vita meaning you can open the web browser without having to close your current game! great for those using walkthroughs or just want to browse the internet suddenly without the problem of restarting your game! how cool is that!

    sony make me lafs, is no way i will update my vita is… very nice very good on 1.81,plus is stand there from day one they sell it waiting for better times like now.
    plus is no way they will get a credit card detail on sony accounts NEVER EVER and to make the Vita Plus availeble is need a credit card number to pass for next stage….

    REGARDS

    This sux….. I really enjoy my emulators but having plus already its so tempting to grab UC & GR idc about the other stuff but those games are making it a difficult decision…. Not to mention i play umvc3 alot on vita

  79. lowkee33 says:

    I only ran the custom firmware for Peace walker so for me I will just have to buy Peace walker again in digital format, and enjoy the benefits of the new update. I hope that a new vulnerability will be found. I do have to say that this is the best update that sony has had to offer. Way to go Sony with bribing us, you win for me this time.

  80. Soldier says:

    Simple solution take an hour or 2 to back up your entire cfw 1.81 and than update. Than you can go back to 1.81 whenever right? Isn’t that what backups are for or does that not work with firmware updates? Going back and fourth?

  81. Blackforest says:

    Anyone know what 6 games they are giving or can we choose the game we want?

  82. E says:

    Okay okay, this is a major dilemma for me but it really all comes down to ONE thing: WHAT games are you getting for “free”? Because if they are lame games I will just keep my TN eCFW and continue playing my Bleach: Heat the Soul 7 and DBZ: TagTeam. Really that and the 3 months of PSN are the only incentives because the other parts of the update will be there regardless of whether or not you update now or a year from now. ~Just One Guy’s Opinion~

  83. SofaKing™ says:

    eCFW is great and all, i use it mainly for super mario and the UMD’s I ripped, because ther is no DIGITAL version, like Tiger woods, or World Series Of Poker, ya, ya, they need a POKER app and an INTERNET radio app like on the PSP

  84. Hunter says:

    Stay in the 1.81
    I Updated to 2.00 and now i can´t conect the PS VITA in my PS3 CFW 4.30. (to play game in the conect mode)

    Get a job TuckDezI……..

  86. Lawliet156 says:

    How do I sign up for the free 30 day trial? I don’t see it on Vita

  87. Ukdna says:

    Ha, I ‘second’ that
