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

    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 🙂
