Vita Custom Firmware for dummies

You just got yourself a new Playstation Vita, and are looking for a Custom Firmware solution? Then bookmark this page, as it will be kept up to date with the latest, greatest, and simplest solutions available.

PS Vita 3.69

PS vita Firmware 3.69 is not hackable. Although you might be able to run PSP homebrews (within the PSP emulator that ships on the Vita) on firmware 3.69 via some “bubble installation” techniques, anyone who claims they have a 3.69 “full” Vita hack is most likely trying to trick you. You can read more on firmware 3.69 and how it patches the hacks here.

PS Vita 3.65/3.67/3.68 Exploit (h-encore)

H-encore is a full native Jailbreak for Vita firmwares 3.65, 3.67, and 3.68. Details on how to install and run it can be found on our release article here.

If you have a PS Vita running firmwares 3.61 or 3.63, you will want to update it to 3.65, 3.67 or 3.68 before running h-encore.

If you own a PS Vita on firmware 3.60, we still recommend to stay on firmware 3.60 and run Enso/Henkaku as described below.

PS Vita 3.60 Hack (HENkaku)

HENkaku is the Homebrew Enabler for PS Vita 3.60, and probably the easiest way to hack your PS Vita. HENkaku lets you run Native Vita homebrews, as well as PSP homebrews through VHBL. See the following resources to install it and get started:

VitaDoom on HENkaku

Vita Hacks on Lower Firmwares (3.5x and below)

If your PS Vita is running on firmware 3.57 or lower, you can manually update it to firmware 3.60 in order to run the HENkaku hack. Beware to not use Sony’s automated update system, as it will update your PS Vita to the latest official firmware, which is not compatible with HENkaku. How to update your PS Vita manually to firmware 3.60.

There exist other hacks for lower PS Vita firmwares, but at this point we simply recommend you update to 3.60 as explained in the paragraph above, as pretty much everything that used to be possible on lower firmwares (including PSP homebrews and backups) is now doable on Firmware 3.60.

PS Vita Hack history

Historically, many hacks required you to purchase an “exploitable” game on the PSN when it gets announced. In 2012 alone, 8 such game exploits were released. In 2014, more than 50 were announced. In 2015, several vita exploit games were announced for firmware 3.36. We regularly announced names of new exploitable games on this blog, but this trend has pretty much stopped with the HENkaku release on firmware 3.60.

    does anyone know why 3.65enso will disable after restore system

    enso can be made your vita permanently hacked is as known to everyone. my vita is 3.65henkaku enso as well, even if i format it or switch another psn account. the enso is activation as before.
    but some guy said that his vita is 3.65henkaku enso. but it will disable after restore system.

    his vita’s hacking procedure is as follows
    1: resign h-encore with his psn account. then upload it into memorycard via qcma.
    2: open h-encore hacking . after that download enso.vpk from theofficialflow’s and installation as usual.
    the problem is vita’s opening logo display enso symbol but the system information is 3.65 henkaku without “O”
    actually this vita needn’t to run h-encore after reboot. all games and apps can working well. it means henkaku is taking effect.

    it’s so weird that if this vita restore system. the henkaku is disable working. it become 3.65 OFW . luckily. this guy backup h-encore in another official memorycard and delete id.dat as well. so replace this MC could hacking rapidly without login PSN and via qcma.

    i was curious about it and had compared with 2 different vita’s root files between 3.65henkaku enso and 3.68henkaku.
    it’s amazing that there is a “tai” folder include hacking files under vs0’s partition device in 3.65henkaku enso. but that guy’s 3.65henkaku enso not be found. it’s the same as 3.68henkaku
    so i assume that is the reason why his vita’s 3.65enso couldn’t be working after restore system but mine is good .

    does anyone can explain or solve this problem?
    i am not sure whether i could copy this folder to another vita’s vs0 will not make it be brick.
