reF00D released for the PSVita / PSTV – You can now play FW 3.69 games on older firmwares without compatibility packs!


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :) Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    You mention the web browser. Has the web browser even been updated at all since 3.60?

    Do you guys think we’re ever going to see a custom UI home screen kind of like the PSP custom theme/UI.

    Where is the ref00d.skprx file?

    I doubt that Sony will leave it at 3.69. Even after 6 years in EOL, they released an update for the PSP. Not that it matters for this hack anyway.

    Sometimes an updated game doesn’t work with the compatiblity pack. WIll reF00d work even after updating a game?

    Pure art of work . Absolutely magnificent

    Why does the post literally state what $ony could do by using the terms. Im sure $ony knows about this website. Sony decides to change both the NPDRM and SPKG key. Just like how Nintendo changed the keys for the Switch so we can’t use CDN anymore.

      Sony knew what they could do before the blog post was made, but it wouldn’t take long at all because the chain of trust is broken so high up and any new keys from new firmware can be found.

      not like they developed the console and its security functions, obviously they wouldn’t know how to “fix” this breach. that being said, they probably couldn’t patch it permanently (the article even states that would *temporarily* stop this from working)

    Works like a charm. Big thanks to all involved.

    so glad im still on 3.60 and never updated for newer games 😀
    Patience always pays off on the hacking side of things.

    rePatch is faster! ref00d bad ***

    I can’t get it to work on my 3.65 enso Vita. When I try to open a game it says you must update your system software. It works fine on my non enso Vita.

    Any ideas?

    Nice info and guide as always Aurora, thanks.
    But you forget this little part:
    Make sure that reF00D is installed AFTER NoNpDRM in this config.txt.

  14. CryswerCore says:

    crashes an reboot on:
    – stardew valley
    – ocean horn

    C1-6703-6 error on start:
    – secret of mana

    I’ve installed it correctly like the description says. Whats wrong?

    […] the npdrm keys remained identical to those found in FW 3.69 and 3.68, reF00D will still work out the box without any […]
