PS Vita OFW 2.11 available

Earlier today Sony deployed a new version of the Vita firmware to their network.

It is still unclear what the update does, and according to most sources the update is not mandatory for now.

As The Z pointed out on our forums, this is most likely a quick issue fix, probably some minor bug introduced in 2.10 that had to be quickly patched, as is the case for most minor revisions of Sony’s firmwares (i.e if it doesn’t end with a “0″, it’s not worth it).

Of course, it’s worth mentioning you shouldn’t update unless you really have to, especially if you value hacks, homebrews, and all that stuff that the cool kids seem to love. Yeah, I mean us when I say “cool kids”.

Stay tuned!

    hi Wololo are there some games wich you advice to buy, for a future TN V? (im currently in 2.10) and what are the techniques to get a game in Vita without having to update in order to buy it.

      Buy every PSP Game AND Mini on the store to ensure you get a user exploit, once you get the user exploit, you are sure to get a TN-V when/if it is released ;)

        Also buy at least 1 vita per region and buy all the PSN vita games in addition to all the PSP and mini games per region.

    Many people have problems with playing games after the update 2.10 Like FIFA13. It has to do with creating a folder and putting the games in it. It creates some sort of a bug many people encountered.

    You can read more about it on the PS Vita general discussion, in the playstation community forum. 2.11 has fixed few of these problems

    F.I.R.S.T

    Also, interesting with the irrelevant update. Maybe it was an attempt at patching the folder trick from Z?

    Reply

    1. hgoel0974’s avatar

      No, there is no folder trick, we just changed the homebrew directory, and we can do it as many times as we want/need to.

      It was probably a native patch, maybe they left a horribly gigantic hole open in the security?

      I wish we could tell if they had updated the PSP emulator firmware

        The z has a folder trick that is probably more convenient than changing the folders.

      the update isn’t major, just a small fix for something, it isn’t something that would really change anything you do, possibly just fixes a few speed/compatibility issues in games.

      There is no exploit in that demo.

        People, stop asking “Can you make an exploit in the game ?”. You can’t make an exploit out of any game, just certain ones that have vulnerabilities in them.

          Sorry, that comment should have been:

    Sony. They only do updates.

    ANOTHER UPDATE ALREADY? damn.
    They really need to get their head out of their ass and fix this Vita. How about some beta testing before it goes public.

    where to publish the exploit, I can never buy. I’m on version 2.1 and want to go to 2.11.

    It’s most likely and update to be compatible with ‘Soul Sacrifice’ due to the fact that Sony was suppose to release the U.S. Version of the demo yesterday, yet it’s still not up.

    2.10 FW broke a few games, including Hot Shots Golf, which was hard crashing my Vita. the 2.11 update fixed that.

    For the guys in the latest update: Im in 2.01 still with the exploit for psp iso’s and all from Wololo and all the other royal hackers (Thanks guys for making this possible). Ive been playing games that can be played on my psp on my vita and it seems like there’s no difference (other than the huge screen and additional keys but nothing major). The only similarity with 2.11 users and hackable firmware users is were waiting for something new. Why not we aim for something BIG, like something that’s worth waiting like a PSVITA game hack, or an OS that we can port on a vita instead of complaining and arguing about a PSP exploit that they can’t put on the latest FW. The hackers are working their ass off for us guys so lets just hope their brains won’t collapse for our demands.

    For the Hackers: Thanks for your great work and I know that these things aren’t your greatest work yet. We know there’s more to come and we’re looking forward for your greatest achievements.

    THIS UPDATE LITERALLY DESTROYED MY VITA. Sending it back to warranty, because it is turning on and off alone, power button and PS Vita button doesnt work, USB connection turns on and off alone, i cant keep my games organized the way i want, whenever the console turns off it defaults the games positions on the main screen. Screw you Sony.
