Mandatory PS Vita firmware 3.36 is now available! – Good bye Custom Bubbles?!
Sony has just released a new firmware for the PS Vita. This new firmware is mandatory for using the online services, such as the Playstation Store, Trophies and other services.
Firmware 3.36 can now be downloaded onto your PS Vita 1000, PS Vita 2000 or PSV TV. If the firmware is not available in your region yet, wait a few hours and try it again.
Since the numeral difference between 3.35 and 3.36 is small, no new features are expected.
But what does firmware 3.36 actually change? Well…
I’ve just updated my PS Vita from firmware 3.35 to firmware 3.36 and I have to say that barely anything has changed.
The custom bubbles are still working, which is a relief, but Sony did change something in firmware 3.36, a change we do not like.
Prior to firmware 3.36 you were able to modify content inside of the /PSP/GAME/…/ folders, if you renamed the /PSP/ folder into /PSP2/, since this circumvented this protection.
As of firmware 3.36 you are unable to rename the /PSP/ or the /PSP/GAME/ folder, which pretty much stops you from setting up new custom bubbles.
Since you have to rename a folder to set up a new custom bubble, you are not able to do this from firmware 3.36. This also prevents cloning bubbles, since these also require some folder renaming.
Thats pretty much it. We will tell you if we’ve found anything else in firmware 3.36.
