Release: HENkaku-Android – Host HENkaku locally on your phone with the push of a button
For those of you who want a convenient, locally hosted solution to load the HENkaku hack on their PS Vita, or for those who simply like the cool factor of running the most badass hack from their phone, Codestation just released HENkaku-Android: a server that hosts the HENkaku files on your Android phone for you to access from your Vita.
This means you don’t necessarily need to go to the HENkaku official site anymore in order to install HENkaku (which is required every time you reboot your PS Vita), instead you can do everything in isolation from your own Wifi network. (see here why it’s important to have such options).
Icing on the cake, HENkaku-android runs with the simple push of a button.
Keep in mind that due to the “local” nature of this thing, this will not work on 3G, only on Wifi.
Codestation credits the following people for this release:
Based on HENkaku offline by Yifan Lu
Based on the AndroidWebServer sample project by Lopez Mikhael
