    How do you install DRM free apps with this?

    • SilicaAndPina

      You need the decrypted backup of one, xD but i dont know of anywhere you can get these
      your best bet is probably to use the account switch method to downlaod and DRMF’s you need

    “Noob question.

    This is coming from the same scene member who “accidentally” released a Vita bricking vpk as a “prank”. I’d be hard pressed to trust anything they make in the future.

    • SilicaAndPina

      Huh whaat bricker?

    • John

      yeah sure, blame the dood for everything who happens, blame his entire life for something he did once, come on dude, dont be dumb.

    • netmanequin

      He released a VPK that formatted memory cards. Never bricked a single Vita. Sure, it’s still a *** move, but no need to lie.

    • Rozalina340

      You are the kind of guy who blames someone forever for just one screw up ? XD

      • SilicaAndPina

        it wasnt even a bricker.. >_< and i didnt release it as a prank..

        • FrameEndet

          You released it as it was and someone else redistributed it as a fake Harry Potter game according to what I heard at the time

          • FrameEndet

            I’m not against you or anything it was a concept at the time I understand concepts can be skewed but it was made to brick regardless of the intent I know now your intent wasn’t malicious but for respect of those effected we shouldn’t forget what actually happened so we can at least keep it from happening again with another upcoming scene creator you are one of the reasons why HENkaku is so secure today which is good, and you’ve contributed a lot since your days of code stealing for things like package installer 2 witch I think is a good redeeming quality for you i hope you don’t forget these Silica and you use them to only get better from here I’d hate to see you drop again and us have too blacklist you intirely

    first

  7. isabel

    do i need to have this installed before updating?

  8. ESL-kun

    what a surprise, doesn’t work. tried on two PSPs. it makes the Arc bubble and save data, but loading it just gives a C1-2858-3 error

  9. ROD

    Thank you very very much for the Linux bin/installers.

  10. Panda

    So for a 3.60 user like myself, would it be possible to use this to install Netflix like you stated?

  11. kokujo

    How to swap the O and X button for ARK?

    Could you please tell me the status of the ps4 cfw , I’m from south africa and for us the the price of games is doubled and internet access sucks and is to expensive to go digital so could you please tell if they are close to any cfw for the ps4 as I really want to be able to play games at a much more faster rate in terms of availability don’t get me wrong I’m not looking to pursue a distribution of the cfw just for personal use as I can’t afford to keep up with new release hope to hear from someone sone thank you. PS I like this site work and the articles written here are great and easy to understand unlike most site to mean to be a hater to them but this site is way better

    • BlumCoLe

      Yes!

    • Vox

      Not just the price, but the availability too. Getting a good Vita game in South Africa is near impossible.

    • chuck

    Hey SilicaAndPina is there anyway you can take me step by step with this process?

    • SilicaAndPina

      what do u wanna do with psvimgtools?

      • Kooper

        Hey never responded, but I am looking for the same thing. When I try to install VBHL through the GUI I get the error in the terminal “IOError: [Errno 22] invalid mode (‘wb’) or filename ‘C:/Users/(my usrname)/Documents/PS Vita/EXTRACTED/PGAME/NPUH90024/game/ux0_pspemu_temp_game_PSP_GAME_NUPH90024/’ ” How can I fix this?

        • Kooper

          I am running 3.65, but I have heard that psvimgtools works just fine with FW 3.65. Am I wrong about this?

      • Kooper

        When I try to install VBHL using psvimgtools GUI I get the error “IOError: [Errno 22] invalid mode (‘wb’) or filename ‘C:/Users/(my usrname)/Documents/PS Vita/EXTRACTED/PGAME/NPUH90024/game/ux0_pspemu_temp_game_PSP_GAME_NUPH90024/’ ” How can I fix this?

  15. Noober

    Wasnt he the one who released the &%@ harry potter vpk?

  16. Uwotm8

    This tool seems like it would be pretty good and helpful but I simply can’t look past the fact he released a vita bricker in the passed. I’ve read comments saying about how you can’t blame people for a mistake they made a while back and all this ***, but this dev went out of his way to maliciously damage people’s consoles as a ‘joke’. I don’t know how anybody like that could be trusted.

    There have been articles on this site in the past about the 3ds cards and how those devs have added code intentionally to brick consoles and vilified them for that, and yet this guy isn’t.

    Can’t say I like those double standards, frankly.

    • wololo

      The difference I make here is in the amount of damage that was made. I don’t like what he’s done but it was a (bad) prank and we still report on his releases. Gateway, conversely, are a company that makes lots of money and intentionally bricked thousands of consoles in order to make more money.

  17. DemonWing90

    so im new to the vita secen so i have no idea what anyof this is i wish i didnt update but i didnt learn about henkaku untill it was already updated it seems neat to do but i just dont understand what it is or how to do it … maybe i should sitck to nintendo hahahaha

  18. Charles Fasano

    No Mac love again, huh. Guess I’ll have to stick with the command line versions for now.

  19. Super MArio

    1. Thank you guys for doing all of this, i love you.
    2. I am new VITA owner and working with 3.63. Dont understand *** yet..
    3. SilicaAndPin, tool ROCKS, dont let h4t3rs get you. Coders make mistakes! Thats something people that didnt get over “Hello world” dont understand.
    4. Few days ago i installed ARK manualy (with psvimgtools) and last night, with your GUI i installed VHBL without any problems and put 138menu on top of it. All in all its looking AWSOME!

    QUESTION: What can i do with this? Can someone explain how to install homebrews/emulators/games or point me on reading?

  20. SsJVasto

  21. wailam

  22. DJPlace
