I have a few questions.
I havent been on the playstation scene since when I owned a psp1001 a few years ago. Back then I remember having a custom firmware that let me play homebrew applications and iso/cso backups.
Is this still possible? I've looked to see if you can download any vita games, but I cant seem to find any, only psp games...any idea why?
Lastly, will ARK allow me to do all this? Where do I begin?
Ark will only work on 2.02, with uno. Also, unless you have a PS3, you are out of luck in getting an older firmware to play homebrew.
Getting ARK (or TN-V
2.Buy Uno (psp version) on said PS3
3 Transfer Uno to Vita

4 DL ARK/TN-V and copy over.
However, if you don't have a PS3, or at least access, all you can do is update to the latest firmware, 2.06 right now, and stand by for the upcoming release of VHBL. Now this won't do PSP backups, aka no ISO/CSO, but will do most homebrew. You just have to be signed in to Wololo.net, and check back often at the forum's, and blog incase you miss it on the forum's, and hope you check in in time to be able to DL the correct game. If you first notice it on the blog, get it "NOW", as that means sony can see it and will be removing it soon. As we don't know the game, it is best to have around $20 ready to go to buy a game from the PSN. Though last time for Uno it was just $4.99, it's better to be safe the sorry.
Also, whatever route you take, I would "buy" the free games they have on the PSN for now. I know Wild Arm's is free, as is Patapon and Patchwork Heroes. There is one more, but I can't remember. Also get the Vita app's you want. There isn't much, but I would get Youtube, netflix if you can use it, Wake-up Club (crappy crappy alarm, but still alarm), and maybe Paint Park. Rememeber Twitter/Facebook/niconico don't work on lower firmware, so not usable on "hack's".
