    Hmm… I’m still at UNO.. to upgrade, or to not?
    Actually I still need to read the article but just wanted to spoil the fun for the cursed word poster kids 😀

    • Moi says:

      Don’t update. Uno will have large memory support in TNV-4 (2.02) which will allow for the entire library of PSP homebrew to work with little or no issues. Just get a new Vita.

  2. John Butter says:

    I just hope this update won’t block TN-V4 because I’ve been waiting for it since its announcement but well…. Also the panoramic photo function looks somewhat cool..

    • Haze7 says:

      Trust me it isn’t that cool. I’d rather use my smartphone fo that.

      • The Z says:

        Smartphone kinda sucks for emulators.

        The PS Vita has physical buttons, that is a straight win.

        • commandnconquer says:

          True it sucks with the touchscreen. But smart phones have awesome multitasking abilities. With that said is there anyway I can remote play my android device to the vita? I would love to play my android emulators with the vita

        • Dmaskell92 says:

          I think he means the panoramic photo function, not gaming. Sony could have made us a better camera, my quality is really bad. My Iphone wins that battle I guess.

    Benefit or usefullness of package installer?

  4. Mario says:

    what is this? Package Installer

    • M says:

      using Package Installer u can install PKG files homebrew and games(i am not sure of it) its like a setup to install apps etc on ps vita

  5. PlaGeRaN says:

    Thank you Z for the info, keep up the good work guys!

    We are counting on you XD!

  6. Haze7 says:

    When do we get the new OpenCMA ?

  7. Mizu says:

    For those people with previous exploits (Uno, Monster Hunter, etc), will we be able to use TN-V4 when it is released through our exploit, or be required to have whatever new exploit is available in order to install it/use it? Another question is whether upgrading firmware will block exploits in game software (eg; Uno), thus rendering them useless?

    • Jd8531 says:

      TN-V4 will indeed be ported to almost all previous exploit releases. You will not need a newer exploit unless you want it. Upgrading WILL block all previous exploit releases rendering them useless.

  8. SSJ-Vita says:

    I really really hope that the TN-V4 puts me just that much closer to being capable of entirely scrapping the worthless… operating system? of the Vita and place android or anything whatsoever other than sony proprietary garbage. I don’t want free vita games, developers deserve to be paid for their hard work no doubt, I just….want…weather in motion on my vita like my generation 1 ipod can do. CURSE YOU ADOBE I DESPISE YOUR GUTS!!!

  9. edukarlo says:

    i love the panoramic as it somehow increases the vita’s low camera resolution.. specially the omnidirectional panorama one.. wow….

  10. walala says:

    cant wait for the exploit game announcement. hopefully it isnt costly.

  11. beastes6453 says:

    hi please i have ps vita firmware 2.6.1 it save to update to 3.0.0 for next tnv4 or i must wait thank and sorry long time i dont check the evolution ps vita

  12. gideon says:

    yeah!!! first piece to the puzzle arrives…

  13. megaman781 says:

    *** guys, this is awesome, cant wait for the release and the good things coming for the Vita, i cant stress enough how awesome you guys are for keeping us informed, Thanks.

  14. welele says:

    Will the real Wululu please stand up?

  15. curious says:

    will they announce a date for the 2.61 or 3.00 exploit game name befor releasing it like will they give a date for the exploit release befor releasing the exploit it self like say for example (nov25 we announce the exploit game name so get wallet funds ready)

  16. beastes6453 says:

    really no one have a answer

  17. Eddy187 says:

    who can i find the package installer`?

  18. Yifan Lu says:

    > Some people were enraged about this, that Sony might remove this, because this is such a cool feature, but it was stated, that Sony cant remove it, without completely changing the whole Firmware structure, and well, it seems that this is correct.

    Wrong. It’s actually as simple as removing the app eboot from the os filesystem. Or they can just patch the way we’re accessing it. They just didn’t have time to respond yet. I’ll bet that 3.01 will patch this (along with tn-4).

  19. gunblade says:

    if the ps4 having anader update then its probly got vita stuff think what sony jus update the vita with the last year trying to make the vita and ps4 more compatable..

  20. Vitality says:

    The panoramic camera sucks a bit, because it doesn’t let me take a picture manually after pressing capture button; the camera automatically takes a picture when it’s aligned, resulting weird stitches of panoramic image.

  21. tangra87 says:

    Finaly , now we all just have to be patient and wait for the ninja release of a game (hopfully mini) and the tn-v4 🙂 the only regret I will have is not to be able to play Injustice Ultimate edition with my vita online for a wile(wen it came out later this mont)
    The Z ,thanks for the fast info 🙂

    • curious says:

      well I hope its a game that supports my right stick that’s what I hope it is so I can use both analogs during kh bbs

  22. KanadeEngel says:

    The Package Installer is a bit useless, u can only install Packages from Sony.

    Also no Debug and Pseudo Packages….

  23. tangra87 says:

    i dont know if this is new,but I didnt knowit befoure- inthe brouser of the ps vita if you tipe(press) the square botton apere “mouse” like the psp and with the leftstick you move it. may be is some thing I simpli didnt know- wen im browsing I normaly never toch the bottons.

    • tangra87 says:

      im sorry my mistake ive lookd and it was becouse of the option of use of the bottons on the vita menu was on.

  24. BigBossJC says:

    My question is now that 3.00 is out and ps4 is out in 2 weeks I want to update so the two can work together however I am currently running 2.02 uno exploit and I don’t wish to lose this. So when TN-4 is released will there be another game named that we can buy and install on 3.00? Thanks for any help given.

    • RickyD says:

      Try reading the article. It says there’s a problem with exploits running on this firmware. They’re looking into it, but I wouldn’t update yet if you’re worried about not having an exploit anymore

  25. robin994 says:

    is there a way to call the pkg installer?

  26. AliFOJ says:

    No matter what update comes out, I’m gonna stay at 2.12 using VHBL on Gamocracy so just give me TN-V4 now. 😀

  27. DSwizzy145 says:

    The *Package Installer is enabled from the PSVita menu or PUP file it’s self?

  28. M[u]ddy says:

    “Every german hates the USK, since they cut games…”
    Actually it’s the publishers that cut the games. They want to avoid, getting the game indexed. Indexed games cannot be advertised, which is every publishers nightmare.
