PS Vita Firmware 3.52 is out, revokes PSM support, effectively patching the Rejuvenate hack (do not update!)
PS Vita firmware 3.52 is out, and it patches the Rejuvenate hack, by revoking PSM from the device.
If you are running the Rejuvenate hack, or are hoping to run it, do not update to firmware 3.52. This “stability” update has the only goal of blocking the recently released native hack.
Just like many other stability updates on the PS vita, the sole goal of this update is to slow down the hacking scene, and this will not bring any stability whatsoever. Add it to the pile of updates Sony released only for the sake of the scene 😉
For those of you who do not have a publisher’s license but have the PSM Dev App installed, we’re still figuring out the timing to release PSM+, the tools that will let you run Rejuvenate without a publisher’s license.
It is important at this point that as many people as possible stay on 3.51 or lower. A significant amount of people running the Rejuvenate hack could make a huge difference in how lively the PS vita scene will become in the months to come. I have lots of things to announce to follow up on the hack release, unfortunately the timing is not perfect on my end as I just switched jobs and don’t have the time I want to spend on this. Please bear with me.
Do NOT update to 3.52 if you ever want to run Rejuvenate. Even if you can’t download/use PSM DevAssistant, hold off on 3.52 for now!

Our friend Heleius at hackinformer stated that other, undisclosed hacks, including ePSP hacks, are still working on this firmware, confirming that the Rejuvenate hack was the only target for this update.
