    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…

    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.
