    be a good buy and post a link

  2. NoThanks says:

    Uh, ya. Think I’ll wait for an official release.

  3. Greyfox says:

    This seems completely pointless. Of course we are not going to install unfinished software from a leak that WILL hurt your vita. That is wrong in soo many ways. I respect developers who take their time to make sure everyone has a quality experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am not a developer and cant do the things that they do.

  4. PoliteTimesplitter says:

    The person doing the leaking is known as ‘silica’ – I hear he has some kind of bad reputation behind him for distributing malware homebrew, or something like that?

    What is wrong with you leakers. You expect some kinda praise for leaking this? You think your a hero? Your being foolish, your going to damage peoples property. Do not get discouraged developers of Enso, I will not be downloading this til its official from you all. Your hard efforts are recognized and we admire your hard patience and time. Who ever did this has no respect for you all.

      “damage peoples property.” , you know that it can be used regards the sony right?, do not unlock the vita, only use the updated system, do not “damage peoples property”, dood, are u a child?

        It’s DUDE, ***!! Go Back To School! Hooked On Phonix Worked For Me…..

      • James and the peach says:

        “You know that it can be used regards the sony rights?,” – “Sony” “regard- concern or attention or consider or think” How does what you say work exactly? Is it A. You know that it can be used (concerned) to the Sony rights? B. You know that it can be used (attention) to the Sony rights? C. You know that it can be used (considered) to the Sony rights? or D. You know that it can be used (thinking) to the Sony rights? I’ll take “Considering the people” for 100 Alex. Dood – (Dude)

      personally, i think that if someone wants to try the leaked version – let him. just make sure he knows the risks and does it on their own responsibility.

      then again, someone might market it to users who are not very up to date with vita hacking and potentially brick their consoles. because this is a great clickbait material.

      the leak was bound to happen sooner or later, no need to spew hate on whoever did this. this is just a byproduct of the hype.

  7. JulienKoenig says:

    It’s still not very wise to leak it.
    We know what happened after the Vitamin leak..
    It’s okay if it was a challenge for him/her, but he/she shouldn’t made it public.

    Thanks Wololo for the warning, and because it’s not said often enough:
    Thanks to all Devs who keep the vita alive, if it wasn’t for you, my vita would still rot in a corner.

    • None says:

      yeah, i think it was an unnecessary leak, it was going to be realeased anyway, but for me its ok to let it be a public test, just let the guys know about the risks about brick, and it should be ok.

  8. NotAHater says:

    hackers who hack code and leak it complaining about getting their code hacked and leaked… kinda funny…

    maybe some people wanted to try the beta and NOT have their console ID on record and readily available to other hackers…


    • badleaker says:

      people who hack consoles do it for good, they improve the console by unlocking features and they expose problems/flaws which the manufacturer can then fix.. people who leak are impatient attention whores who steal other peoples work

  9. fox says:

    i like ensou 🙂 had participated in beta test , now dont neet to run any email or web exploit works superb 🙂

  10. fuleaker says:

    Leaker = Son of a B…

  11. NanoSpeedGamer says:

    Funciona todo correcto ya lo llevo instalada mi ps vita

  12. Ilyspb says:

    Very sorry that people are so pathetic.

  13. Sohel says:

    Yes i am waiting for an official release.

  14. Bunkai says:

    Hi, first of all I want to thank you for your time doing posts, It’s really appreciated. And thanks to all developers who make this scene alive.

    Second, I agree with what you said and I am not using other ensou except the one that molecule will release.

    And the last thing, for all readers here and for you, I want to say this only for knowledge purposes; if you want to know more about the leak, theFlow0 has tiwitted about that topic. I hope this doesn’t cost more damage than help.

  15. Kairzy says:

    And here they go again leaking *** or releasing things that can damage people’s property.

    Yes they did it once with there own home brew and now they release something tha was not there’s to release in the fest place which as been stated to brick consoles.

    No wonder no one trusts this person.

  16. sfa2miki says:

    Always official releases are better and only in trusted web pages… u_u

  17. zfreeman says:

    wololo, it’s not harassment. It’s negative reinforcement. Just some classical conditioning to keep the dog from chewing the furniture.

  18. sloppycrap says:

    Leaked by silicaandpina. I wouldn’t touch anything from him with a 100-foot pole.

    • d4rk51d3 says:

      Not sure that it was his leak though. Someone else leaked Enso, S&P “cleaned it up” and re-posted it.
      Would have still been prudent to wait for the official release though.

  19. Alpmaster says:

    I know if you *** off yifanlu or molecule than they might not even release Enso

  20. Ilitri says:

    Pillo la pole, pillo hueco y te doy mis dieses shurmano!!

  21. Franz Rogar says:

    I don’t care but… what is that yellow appendix in his/her PSV?

  22. Primula says:

    Didn’t get to say this in the gba thread but… who the heck is silicaandpina beside the fact they are char from SAO the girl and her dragon…

    Also only dl thing from legit sources…

  23. fidosy says:

    Users beware!!

  24. adover1965 says:

    Silica and pina……He’s A ***. Period What He Did Was The Lowest Thing You Can Do.

  25. Toni says:

    A esperar!Gracias Wololo

  26. TheTechDoc says:

    Everyone getting all high and mighty saying the leaker is this and that and getting all on the Morale high ground… didn’t see any of you complaining when vitamin was leaked, pretty sure that day was the most active the vita scene has ever been, and that too had a significant risk of doing damage to your vita..

  27. boypalos says:

    a leak of a software soon to be release is called… EARLY ACCESS.!!! hehehe
    but seriously.. what gives… what do people gain from an unofficial version?

  28. Demian says:

    Myself, as long as it doesn’t come from the original developer I won’t touch any release, leaked or not.

    On the other hand, when Vitamin was leaked, everyone praised the leaker (except the developers of course), so then why the Ensö leaker isn’t praised and hated instead? Kind of a contradiction. I’m not in favor of leaked content coming from the scene, it just means trouble for our consoles and the risk of a brick (as is the case now).

    I can wait until July 30th, after all the hype of the release is getting down (kind of) to download and install Ensö on my Vita, I’d be sure it is a stable release and the risk of a brick would be very inferior than it is right now. Would’ve liked to be a bug-hunter but didn’t knew about the beta testing up until a week or so.

    • Charles Fasano says:

      Since this software can potentially brick your Vita, this is why people are not happy with this being leaked since unknowing people would install it than complain to the developer that it bricked their Vita when it wasn’t his fault.

  29. Nightman says:

    This is why we can’t​ have nice things

  30. Sonyfanboy says:

    I am the one who leaked those files anybody want a copy.

  32. PromptPudd'nPop says:

    The leak, is basically hacker piracy, it sucks, but it will happen eventually given the demand, and the drive to deliver onto that demand, I cannot really blame the guy for wanting to crack the DRM, nor can I blame him for releasing it, as I’m a strong supporter in piracy, and the use it can have in leaving the consumer in control of their choice, as well as for code junkies, or devs to get a source of nutrients to lust upon whether for educational reasons, or “other” reasons, but if you personally don’t like it then don’t use it (the leak), and let it be noted as your open opinion just as you have, nobody can stop you, and I surely won’t as I support free thought in all it’s glory (as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone, which let’s be honest nobody is, or will ever be at harm here) I personally won’t use the leak despite my stance, I simply don’t have a valid enough reason to run it pre-launch with all it’s buggy beta build goodness, I’ll just take it as it’ll be on release, and leave it at that.

  33. infern says:

    By telling people not to click the link is the worse thing that could’ve been done in this situation.

    Yes the source works, yes the beta runs fine.

    By telling people not to, you are just giving it more publicity. Just like when movie studios get forced over leaks.

    Should’ve either
    a) Not said anything, ignored the leak until it became traction. People wouldn’t be searching otherwise
    b) The team should have released a public beta in response, shutting the leakers down

    • Think says:

      It’s his duty as the biggest vita blog site to report the hacking scene news to us, not hide things. What a moronic response.

      Besides, leak has 0 effect, yifanlu doesn’t care except for the fact that the leaker is a fool who doesn’t show any respect.

  34. DJPlace says:

    wow this is ******* stupid.

  35. Mustapha ali says:


  36. MegumiGumi says:

    Dmn it would be great if you told them that this guy too is the one who release Harry potter lego that reformat everyone M Card

  37. Bob says:

    What I don’t understand is, why release the unfinished version when the developers are planning on releasing the stable and complete version?
