    Perfect, I was trying to figure out how to clean my PS Vita before doing a clean reinstall of Henkaku (and maybe Ensô but I never used it, always activated Henkaku manually via the e-mail app). It never occurred to me that updating would actually clean the Vita. Perfect, thanks !

    Is it cool to update my 3.65 to 3.68? So i can use my psn features? But does it have a permanent henkaku enso that would only need one installation?

  4. windhazard says:

    Glad to see new release but I honestly think this has no practical use. You need a hacked vita in order to use it. But if you have a hacked vita already, why would you update to higher firmwares and lose Enso? Games requiring higher firmware will be dumped eventually and be able to run on 3.60/3.65 Enso Henkaku, so there’s simply no reason to update.

      Man, this is for prepare the vita for the upcoming hack to 3.68 on July 1

      • Gianluca Di Maggio says:

        You know that anything above 3.65 is simply worse than anything before 3.65? There’s no need to update to 3.68 if you’re not already on it..

        • windhazard says:

          Exactly, and if you are on stock firmware now, just update using normal method to 3.68.

    Is there a chance of enso on 3.68? Otherwise not sure why would anyone use official update, unless its needs to go on official 3.65. Also on the video teaser he showed an offline install. meaning while no permanent hack, you can activate without needing internet+ standby will make it semi permanent.

      Update to 3.65 using QCMA and manually downloaded (official) firmware file. Stay on 3.65 and you will be ready when TheFlow releases his exploit chain, scheduled to be released on 7/1.

      Here’s a guide:

      • Anonanon says:

        Confused why anyone would update to ofw 3.65 when we already have enso on 3.65 (providing you use theflow’s updater from 3.60)

        The new exploit is only really useful for those on ofw 3.65/3.68. if you’re on 3.60 you can already update to a henkaku enso enabled 3.65

      • EdenLegaia says:

        Beware about something that guide doesn’t say: QCMA may have a “Ignore the xml file” option enabled. Disable it or your VITA will give you a C3-12049-6 error.

    • zfreeman says:

      Update to 3.65 for future Enso. Or update to 3.68 for PSN and future Henkaku, but no Enso.

  8. Nergal says:

    Will be a updater metod like change the dns without need of use qcma(tried with no sucess) to update non hacked version 3.61/3.63 to 3.65?

  9. lightning says:

    Stay on ENSO at 3.65 and wait for all the games on 3.68 to eventually get decrypted and dumped by Mai. By then a new ENSO updater may come out. Cold boot Enso is too convenient to give up.

    Updated web browser would be nice. Getting tired of the SSL crashes on every second website.

    eh…. the github page is down

    • Nando says:

      Yes, it seams that TheFlow saw some confusion/mixup on users about the updater and got it off-line… =/

    The github page is down.
    It gives “Not Found” in

    • Nando says:

      Yep, it seams that people were getting confused on what the updater does and TheFloW got it off-line… =/
