How to stop bricking vitas, IDEA!! Programmers/Devs needed!!

Post by P3T3 » Sun Oct 09, 2016 10:31 am

I see it as simple as this..
What they are doing is calling for OS0 to be mounted along with OS0:KD and VS0, so for most STD users do not need access to this, and no need to mount for R/W access, no R/W access no way to brick!!
We need a vpk app or some kind mod that blocks for these partions being mounted for R/W, perfect for for none devs, simple but workable, im not a programmer and this is why I will post this for some one that can WIP it up ;)
Shore a few people will be thinking the same as me, it been going round in my head for a few day but would not know where to start on the VITA!!

We already have safe mod that stops this, the problem is people ignore the warnings..

Yeah, a small permissions system would be nice. Leave the system partitions read-only. But let room for an option to change it to Read/Write if its really needed. I image something like the following dialog

"*NameOfTheAPP*.vpk is trying to mount *partitionname* for read/write access" and then some buttons like "Agree" "Disagree"

Of cause if u disagree, it wouldn't mount these read/write and stop the vpk installation with a error.

Such system could be implement via a new HENkaku Version.

Also, you need to read up on the forum rules as well...

[READ THIS] Requests are not allowed on this Forum!
viewtopic.php?f=116&t=46474

POST YOUR HENKAKU [REQUESTS] IN THE SUPPORT SECTION

Also, as others said... this is not needed as long as the users download from legit sources such as the devs itself and like others said Henkaku comes with a warning to the user to be wary of installing any old vpk package you might find.

*PSA* Only download and install VPKs from trusted sources
