    I was getting “Reached loader” and then Error C1-2858-3 popup after a minute or so after switching to ARK. I switched back to TN-C and deleted all the ISOs in /ISO with VITA FTP, and now ARK is able to load.

    Any idea what the trigger is for this error? Could be really annoying to upload a random ISO that causes the eCFW to fail loading later.

      I noticed the ARK recovery menu can remove files or run the VITA FTP directly. If anybody has this problem, try using th recovery menu to delete one ISO at a time to find which one causes the problem.

    Awesome work, thanks to the Pro team for releasing this to everyone. I was using TN CEF and had no complaints, but Quake Arena homebrew wouldn’t run on it. ARK runs it just fine so ARK definitely has better compatibility. ISO’s and homebrews seem to load faster also. Kudos…keep up the great work!

    So can we apply patches to ISOs with this? I’m thinking of the slowdown fix to Final Fantasy Tactics WOTL
