      New Vita users are in the triple digits at most at this point. Not a group that needs concern.

    The vita was no longer in production so would this mean you have to want the update and accept the install.??

    A big LOL. Sony is relentless…

      They gave up on the PSP eventually, and they’re going to give up on the Vita eventually too.

    If Skeba’s Moduro fork was not working on 3.73 FW, it was not due to the method it uses but only to a simple condition which checks if FW is strictly 3.71 or 3.72:
    “if (*(unsigned int *)(sysroot + 4) == 0x03710000 || *(unsigned int *)(sysroot + 4) == 0x03720000)”
    So, no reason to be worried for the moment 🙂

      i have tried upgrading to 3.73 and managed to downgrade it back to 3.65 but now when i tried running the ENSO it won’t let me do it, it is giving me an error message: Failed to load kernel module:0x8002d003. Pls help!

    When Sony never cared about the Vita yet keeps pushing updates to try and “prevent” people from hacking it. Classy act.
