As most of us know, software updates tend to break all sorts of things that hacking communities develop. Recently, TheFlow hacked FW 3.65 and got HENkaku (taiHEN) and even HENkaku Enso to run on it but some things, such as some plugins, broke and ux0:/patch could no longer be used to install mods with as Sony patched its PFS decrypting abilities.
What is RePatch and RePatch reDux0?
On the day that TheFlow released his 3.65 CFW Updater, SilicaAndPina (no, this won’t brick your console or format your memory card) and dots-tb released a plugin called rePatch that allowed you to regain the abilities that ux0:/patch gave us. This meant that you could use game mods that require ux0:/patch to work such as the Persona 4 Undub mod and some English translations.
Mods, like the Persona 4 Undub mod, that use ux0:patch can now be used on FW 3.65 without any major issues!
Unfortunately, RePatch had one major flaw and that was that it had issues when you suspended the console (i.e turned the Vita’s/PSTV’s display off). Now, this is where RePatch reDux0 comes in!
Now, thanks to dots-db, RePatch reDux0 has been released and it has the following fixes:
The suspend issue is now fixed!
The plugin’s code has been made much more efficient.
It also seems that RePatch, the original iteration of the plugin, has been updated to version 1.0, which includes the suspend fix.
It’s also worth mentioning that RePatch works with NoNpDrm games.
How do I install mods with it? How do I get it?
To install mods with it, you have to place your mod files in ux0:/rePatch not ux0:/patch and load them with the plugin (it must be installed in the KERNEL section of taiHEN’s config.txt). Make sure that your game is updated to the version that the mod you’re using requires!
