Henkaku 3.68, is Ensō really that important?
With H-Encore inbound from TheFlow, there have been allot of questions regarding the fact that 3.67/3.68 will not support Ensō. I’d like to address a few concerns myself, as I tend to follow recent developments, and have no life.
So first of all, what is Ensō? Ensō enables HENkaku on your PS Vita when the device boots. This provides a seamless experience when using a modified PS Vita. Your PS Vita will be “permanently” hacked, and there is no need to apply HENkaku again after each reboot.
It is unfortunate 3.67/3.68 dropped Ensō (patched by Sony), however the video TheFlow showcased it is evident that his code is more efficient, and not dependent on the browser or email app. This means that it will only take a few seconds to enable HENkaku, and there will be no errors that plagued the original release.
Most of us don’t shut our devices off completely, and use the sleep function like Sony had designed. You will only need to launch the H-Encore bubble once and it will stay exploited until a full shutdown has been performed.
Many are on the fence about 3.68, thinking WiFi will be required to launch the exploit. TheFlow has stated H-Encore can be enabled 100% offline. This is great for those of us who value portability, and eases stress if your Ps Vita reboots when you’re away from home.
H-Encore will require an official Ps Vita memory card if you have the original launch model (1000). If you have the Slim model (2000) it can be loaded from the internal storage provided by the device. The exploit should be very small and should install fine on any size proprietary Sony Memory Card.
Once the exploit is enabled, it should permit the use of SD2Vita, and PSVSD devices.
If you still wish to obtain Ensō, you need to be on 3.65 or lower. If your firmware is higher, you will miss out on Ensō, however H-Encore will still be amazing! You shouldn’t be too envious of the Ensō users who decided to stay on lower firmware’s (like myself).
3.68 users will also be able to enjoy new games without firmware restrictions using the NoNpDrm platform. While 3.65 users may be stuck with sub par backups, requiring eboot’s from MaiDumpTool. Hopefully this cleared up some confusion and helps you sleep at night, feel free to ask questions below.
