What should you know before HENkaku Ensō lands!


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.

    Anyone remember the days on wololo site when you had to wait for ninja exploit releases for the psv? Now we have Henkaku which is better than ark and tn-v, it was released exactly one year ago on 7-29-16 and we also have sd2vita storage now. What a lot of progress since then. Thanks Deva

  6. cool

    If I install Enso, will it let me play PS5 games? 😀

    I downloaded the vpk from the henkaku website,but when it tries to install it says os0 is modified and to download and reinstall 3.60 pup.

    It would be great if CF Vitas, in a few months, would be able to run games above 3.60.

    A man can dream.

    woohoo! enso is installed and working perfectly with psvsd drivers loading my 256 gig micro sd!

    Can Ensō gives me ability to set up and use a vita2sd adapter without an orignal vita memory card. (Mine vita card died long time ago)

  15. Kaneda

    No superpowers for my PS Vita, ok 🙁

    PD: Greeting from Perú

    Works like a charm, pretty incredible piece of software!

  17. Frank

    Well Enso installed succesfully here thanks to hackinformer for the link.

    Current build date is July 23rd.
    Have fun, people. It works great.
    Ensou is simultaneously the most exciting and least exciting thing to happen on the Vita scene. 😛

    Use “Paste as plain text,” you noob.

    Had for both Vita and PSTV to update the 3.60 PUP. Installing the pup on the PSTV resulted a blackscreen, but just let it do its work.
    After that installing enso works fine.

    good news

  22. froid_san

    I was wondering how will enso be updated? henkakuis alwas updated to the latest version when you reactivate it using online, how enso gonna be updated? download a updated vpk every now and then???

  23. Mich

    It’s already available!

    This is another Aurora’s failed article…

    • Aurora

      I don’t think it’s failed. I can’t anticipate the release time. It was up for hours before the release article so I think it was still useful as an informative article.

      It’s journalism, you can’t say something is failed when the writer doesn’t have the release time at hand.

    • VitaDreams

      Hardly! I won’t be able to install enso for a couple weeks and reading this article is very informative to me, but in the interest of full disclosure I’m a fan of Aurora’s posts so I may be biased 😉

    >> It will not let you play games meant for a higher firmware either!
    >> You also won’t be able to play dumped games for higher firmware versions so forget about that.

    * Is there any possibility at present to run games with higher firmware? even with a different tool or offline installer, etc? or it will just be impossible with all?

    >> This will make HENkaku/taiHEN like a real CFW that we used to see in the PSP days
    * Do you know the name of a permanent CFW for the PSP GO? I had one installed but I had to relaunch it with every reboot, I didn’t manage to see a permanent one…

    Hola Aurora, podrías escribir un tutorial para los usuarios que hemos instalado Enso, resulta que a mi me ha dejado de funcionar ds4vita.

  27. bootyP

    I have a new in box psTV. Will the activation issue prevent me from be able to install enso (I plan to play a handful of vita games and use adrenaline for ps1/psp games)

  28. Kylis

    Did the non permanent Henkaku allow you to play games that required firmware above 3.60?
