TheFlow officially advises on what to do if your PSVita/PSTV is running 3.61-3.68: Firmware 3.65 will become the new FW 3.60 and more!


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.

    And what about 3.68 with ARK?

  3. Karol says:

    And what about 3.63 with ARK?*

    • Dmaskell92 says:

      Dude Henkaku means ARK is obsolete. Adrenaline will probably come packaged with it, because it was created by the same person.

    As mentioned in tbe article, stay on 3.60 until the new exploitis released. It’s the safest and you can re-install enso without losing any data in case something goes wrong.

    Uh… you can play “Backups” on 3.65 just fine. You just need to update your plugins to 3.65 compatible. Please do research before actually writing an article, it can ruin your reputation.

    Aurora, I hate you so much. Your articles are a damn mess every time.

    • Dmaskell92 says:

      You seem like a fun person at parties

      oh shut it

      You used to be one of the great trolls of our time….what happened?
      “I hate you so much”, “Your articles are a mess”, come on, there’s no real feeling or emotion here. It just seems like you are going through the motions now.
      Maybe it’s time to take a break. Give yourself a couple of months off. Travel for a bit and relax. Then, come back with some of the fresh and clever dialogue that we have come to know from you.

    You are on firmware 3.60, for now I personally advise staying there as you can play dumped copies of games that require 3.61-3.65 (albeit illegally) and run all your favourite homebrew/plugins.
    Wait… thats means I can play games intended for firmware 3.61-3.65 on a hacked psvita 3.60 henkaku ins’t it?

    • Shen says:

      Yes MaiDump can decrypt game. So they can be playable on 3.60.

      The day when MaiDump will run on 3.67-3.68 it will be the same.
      Game 3.61-3.68 will be playable on 3.60.

      • surcof says:

        just to be clear: if i install maidump, i’ll be able to play games (like Darkest Dungeon or God Wars: Future Past) on my 3.60 vita?
        that would be awesome!!!

    I have to say, it’s amazing that I’ve got a PSTV on 6.35 and my PS4 Slim is at firmware 5.05 this week was a great week for me.

  9. Itachi says:

    How to update from 3.63 to 3.65?
    Patiently waiting for the CFW.

  10. TrickyNinja says:

    I am on 3.63 OFW, how I’m I able to update to 3.65 OFW?

  11. oreo says:

    What if I wanna play vita online on psn?
    – upgrade to 3.68 and hope for hack coming .
    – buy a second vita.


    • Oreo and Milk says:

      There are many ways to go online.
      1. Psn Spoofing which automatically comes preinstalled with Henkaku
      2. Netcheck Bypass (you’ll have to look up what games are compatible)
      3. Proxy Server that you set up on your PC (I use Charles Proxy)
      4. Restore + ReNpDrm (these 2 plugins let you go online)

    • kok0ro says:
