taiHENkaku has been in testing since the beginning of November but it’s still not considered as being final since it’s still a beta. This has prompted the creation of SwitchKAKU which allows the user to switch the offline installer between HENkaku stable and taiHENkaku testing easily.
SwitchKAKU is pretty straightforward, it allows you to switch your offline installer from the stable to the testing build whenever you want as long as you have tai/HENkaku enabled. This is achieved via a pretty simple mechanism which points the offline installer to “beta.henkaku.xyz” for testing builds and “go.henkaku.xyz” for stable builds. To choose between the two only requires the user to select the installer they want to install. There’s also a feature to install updated taiHENkaku offline if you don’t have an Internet connection.
This is the changelog:
Improve error messages and add colors
Update offline TaiHen files to R7 (for a first offline install) <-Should refer to beta 7
Code clean up
Disable compression (henkaku R6 or earlier does not support compressed homebrews)
As one can see, the updates are quite minor but they should provide a better user experience and the ability to install taiHENKaku beta 7 (latest version) offline (you just need to copy some files to your PSVita). Version 1.04.1 fixes the application on Henkaku R6 or earlier since 1.04 had binary compression that only worked under taiHENkaku (due to compression becoming default in the updated toolchain).
The offline exploit files MUST be placed in ux0:/data/switchkaku and should be copied from the src/data folder of the archive you download.
As most of us know, taiHEN is close to being stable thus eliminating Henkaku R6 BUT this homebrew will still be useful if there are post taiHEN (HENkaku R7) testing builds.
Thanks to user ‘luck’ of Wololo /talk forums for all his hard work.
