HENkaku is taking a step in a new direction; with Team Molecule working on it again. This time around, quite a major thing will happen. Think of it as an untethered jailbreak in which you don’t have to reapply HENkaku every time you load up your Vita.
What do we know about it?
Right now, not much is known but enough is out there to generate some hype; that’s for sure. The main thing we know right now is that HENkaku no longer needs to be reapplied because it’s automatically injected at boot time. While this may not seem so great considering that the taiHEN applying process is pretty stable; it opens a whole bunch of possibilities. This means that Team Molecule have delved deeper into the PSVita’s closed off boot process. Apart from not needing you to reapply taiHEN, this version of HENkaku can lead to many great developments and may turn taiHEN into a full CFW (a la the CFW’s in the days of the PSP). One thing the video confirms is that HENkaku Ensō is running on FW 3.60 so that means that an exploit on a higher FW may not be any closer. A cool feature that HENkaku Ensō seems to include is a custom boot logo you can see in the video!
Assuming the date on the HENkaku Ensō page is the release date of it; it’ll be released exactly one year after HENkaku landed. That means that it’ll land on the 29th of July 2017. It’s already more than 9 months since HENkaku landed so of course Team Molecule has surprised yet again. Development is currently in the hands of Team Molecule that is developer ‘Davee, Proxima, Yifan Lu, xyz’ as per the YouTube video. The video and the official site (which is quite barren right now) are linked below:

I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.
