Prepare your PSN Wallet! – The next Vita FW Update containts PS4 compatibility!

The PS4 launch day is pretty soon, and Sony promised to make the PS Vita compatible with the PS4, obviously via a Firmware Update. The very next PS Vita Update seems to be the PS4-Ready Firmware, which was rumoured to be Firmware 3.00. Some other rumoured features of this new firmware, let’s just call it firmware 3.00, are, that you will be able to transfer files via a Wifi connection between the PS Vita and a PS3 console, which would enable you to transfer files without the need of any cable.

Even though we don’t know the actual version number yet, we can be sure that one of the conditions for the next PSPemulator kernel exploit release will be fulfilled. Earlier this summer Total_Noob stated that he could release another new kernel mode exploit for the PS Vitas PSPemulator, which will bring his improved TN eCFW, which will be TN-V4, to all the PS Vitas, that still can’t use a kernel mode exploit, cause of firmware limitations.

Another intersting fact will be, if his TN-V4 eCFW will run at the new PS Vita Slim & Light (aka. PSV 2000), or if Sony implemented some strengthened security, to prevent eCFWs from running at the newer slim model. I personally doubt that the slim model will refuse to run any of the PSPemulators eCFWs, or the Vita Half Byte Loader, since it should use the same PSPemulator as its older sister.

Will the PSV 2k be able to run the XMB?

Since the title states to prepare your PSN Wallet, I recommend to add some funds to your PSN Account, so you will be able to get a ninja release exploit game, which will, most likely, be released with TN-V4 together, so everyone gets the chance to use the good ol’ PSP XMB at the PS Vita, even though you don’t want to wait at a lower firmware, which offers you the ability to use the VHBL. Even though it is not confirmed that there will be an additional exploit game release, which could be released with TN-V4, I am very confident that there could be one.

In the End I would like to say that Sony might release another Firmware Update that offers just the PS3 Wifi file transfer feature, and nothing about the PS4, since they’ve announced this feature some days ago, and it is still not available. Even if they release a FW 2.70 before the big PS4-Ready FW, they will release a PS4-Ready FW in the next 8 weeks, since the PS4s launch day is pretty soon.

    Isn’t it safe to say that tn-v4 will be released in December. Because there is know way to tell if how many fw updates Sony needs to implement fully working remote play functionality

    Reply

    1. sathriel’s avatar

      The number is 0 because there is no number of FW updates that will make remote play work ;)

        Is the psvita hardware not capable of remote play?

          It is, this dude has no fucking clue what he’s talking about. Remote play is possible and will be expanded upon with new FW releases. That has already been confirmed from Sony. Wololo just confirmed it again.

          Listen to the article and Sony. not some dumbass.

      regardless of when TN-V4 will be release, sony can patch the firmware anytime they want and for players that connects to PSN “regularly” TN-V4 is an “optional bonus” feature for PSV, as for me, i enjoyed the online PSV features more compare to the PSPemulator but i will get this TN-V4 once release.. awesome work TN!

    If your waiting for the Wifi transfer between PS3 and Vita then you got your head in the sand as thats already happened with the latest update.
    Thats what the update was supposed to bring. I haven’t tested it as I dont sync between PS3 and Vita, I sync between PC and Vita as its faster and easier. Well USB cable to PC is faster and easier.

      It might have been added to the PS3 side of things but you are the one with “your head in the sand” as the Vita still has no such option

        if you have any game exploit then you are good enough to use TN-V4

        Reply

        1. Jin’s avatar

          So you mean any VHBL exploit ?
          Like say I got “air hockey and bowling ” then I will be able to get and install the TN-V4 ?

          Please advise .

            No, any VHBL exploit will not do. It has to be able to run in kernel mode. Don’t listen to everyone on here. If EVERY VHBL exploit was capable of TN-V4, we would all be enjoying it.

            These people are lying to you. Why? I have no idea. It’s not like wasting money on an exploit that won’t give you PSP isos, etc is going to benefit them.

            STOP WITH THE MISINFORMATION PEOPLE!

        Yes you are all set, if you have GOLOR with running VHBL exploit. :-)

    Hmm..
    I would recommend to wait for the update after the first “PS4 rdy”-Update so that those first (never-happening) bugfixes may appear out of the blue to fix compatibility issues between PS Vita and PS4.

    Greetings.

    Not sure I understand this. From what I gather, I have to buy ANOTHER CONSOLE to extend the library of my Vita? And in order to play these games you have to be online? Boy for being a handheld there sure are a lot of conditions and headaches to get this baby to run some damn games… Why won’t you let me love you, Vita?!

      Why would you need to further understand that to play PS4 you NEED a PS4?

      I don’t think there are any hidden surprises there.

    The function to transfer files from your Vita to you PS3 is supposed to be released in the last PS3 firmware update, it was written in the update details.

    Reply

  23. Tech’s avatar

    Hey Wololo i think you should tell Total_Noob to hold off the release till at least a month after the PS4 release. My reasoning is that once the PS4 is released and the many games in its line up are release and get to consumers hands and servers are activated for games to go online, there will be many errors! MANY MANY ERRORS. like even with GTA V there will be many errors, some of which will force Sony to release updates to the PS4, what this means is that the Vita may receive quite a few update as well. i would hate to see this release go to waste and released be fore Sony release two back to back security patches or fixes or adds new PS4-to-VIta capabilities that well have to hold out for.

    TL; DR:
    Release the exploit a month (or a while) after PS4 release to not have the exploit patched in Sony’s obviously expected maintenance updates to fix game compatibility or major errors not related to the TN exploit.
