PS Vita 3.55 or 3.60? Which is better for emulation?

Post by blackhawk709 » Wed Feb 15, 2017 3:30 am

Hi guys,
I've been researching some stuff about hacking the PS Vita and I have come to a bit of a unsettling decision.

Is is better to update manually to 3.60 or stay with my current version (3.55)? I'm just afraid I might make a mistake by going to this later firmware.

The main reason I feel 3.60 is worth updating to is the ability to take advantage of the PS Vita's available hardware to run emulators natively. The games I would like to emulate are from SNES, GBA, and N64 systems.

I would really like to have everyone's thoughts and opinions on this matter so that I can make a sound decision.

Many thanks, Blackhawk

Update to 3.60 > Install HENkaku > Install Adrenaline > lit fam.
Don't expect much in the way of N64 BTW since the PSP one is cool but not very good on the compatibility and the Vita one is still very early in development.

Good to know, I'm ok with the Vita not being able to run N64 properly or at all, just the others (GBA and SNES) are my main focus. Also Adrenaline > TN-V right?

On the other hand, you mentioned that the vita one in 3.60 is still in early development, Should I wait a little longer?

Thanks Fate.

You seem to have misunderstood me, I meant native N64 emu is early in dev right now.
3.60 is the only firmware that has any real native homebrew.

also Adrenalin and TNV are the same, Just the way you start them is different really.

Your right, I ultimately misunderstood what you said in the earlier post, I'm sorry. Thank you for the correction.

Now I fully understand what you are saying. Just to make sure: native N64 is still in early dev and 3.60 is the only firmware that runs homebrew natively.

Again, I apologize for the confusion. Thank you for your response.

If I may ask, would this be the way to go if my vita is on 2.01 or 2.02? I have the "uno expolit" on it but haven't used it since that came out.

I would say so yes.
