    If you want an easier process take a look at this site:

    has a tutorial on youtube (portugues – brazil)

    it works perfectly!!!

    Now we need an offline alternative to:
    A PC application for it will be nice as some people does not have permanent internet…

      That would require either using your PC for raw calculations (takes about 2 days to brute-force a key on a modern CPU I think) or the database of keys pre-generated by molecule. I think they’re intentionally keeping it on the website.

    How safe is it to install this hack on a machine that I also use for legit purchases? Do I need to forever avoid going online, or just make sure I haven’t run the hack when I hit the PlayStation Store? I’ve got a V2 Vita running 3.68.

      I have a second Vita for my regular account that I use. I don’t want to risk a ban on my main one since I spent a *** load of money on legit game purchases since 2007. So I wouldn’t risk your main acct if you put a lot of money into it.

      • Sarge

        Okay, that’s what I figured. I’ll keep it off, then. I may start poking around for a cheap Vita when I get a chance. For now, the PSTV will have to do on the hacking side.

    Just successfully upgraded my 6 years old 3g vita right now. I was stuck at 3.63 back in the day. Is there any way to supress the mobile network validation c4-3575-0? It’s a little bit annoying.

  9. The dreamer

    If i decided to install H-Encore 3.68 using my phat Vita, borowing my friend’s official memory card (because i used SD2VITA), and return it do i still need to have memory card to install H-Encore every time i boot up my Vita or it will recognized my SD2VITA automatically?

  12. Saromanju

    To switch accounts on 3.65 H-encore, is really necessary to formate vita’s card or just restart vitas configuration, should do it for me???

  13. Charles Fasano

    How dow I disable my PSTV from loading plugins at startup using a PS3 controller?

  14. Kit Marshal

    What if I’m already hacked? Do I have to follow the guide to the T still?

  15. DRW

    so can you run 3.68 games on a 3.65 enso psvita then????

  16. Ross Kinlaw

    How do I get Permissions to copy stuff to vitashell? when i attempt to copy any vpk’s to it either through windows explorer or Filezilla it wont copy.

  17. Michael beltre

    I have a phat Vita running 3.68 laying around but I don’t have any memory ( I can borrow one ), if I change the directory to the one that is on the sd2vita I will need the Vita memory or not ?

    • Charles Fasano

      Since 3.67 & 3.68 cannot use Enso, you will always need a Vita memory card to load the exploit first. I use a 4GB Vita card for mine.

  18. OldGoat

    Use total commander instead of filezilla

  19. Dell3030
