    the dedication in this scene to make the impossible a possible. thats why i keep my hopes high waiting for a better homebrew for the ps4 and a permanent cfw for the switch which will eventually happen after the consoles are discontinued.

    Unless I missed something along the progression, but I think to this day Vita still has no true CFW like on PS3. Enso is just a cold-boot jailbreak like on the Wii-U. Am I wrong?

    Interesting read. My Vita was a paperweight for many years and I didn’t bother getting into Vita hacks until Henkaku so the earlier stuff was unknown to me.

    There are two statements that were duplicated in the article about the ENSO 3.60 to 3.65 upgrade.

    What a long-*** article. It was very fun to read tho.
    Thanks for summarizing all these years. Its crazy to think how long ago some of it happened.
    I remember when rejuvenate and henkaku were released…. Time flies.

    Very nice read, thanks again and cheers

    Great work

    The hole story of the Vita, thank you.
    The greatest thing for me:
    Total_noob form PSP 6.20 to Vita TN-V and after that form Vita shell to adrenaline to PsViat God. Gibe that guy a beer

    “Ark was just an iso loader”
    Oh wow, good to know that the writer of an article about hacking doesn’t know what a Custom Firmware is.
    I guess PPSSPP is just an ISO loader. And so is M33 since loading the XMB on a retail PSP isn’t really an impressive feat, or part of the CFW in any way.

    A really well made article I learned a lot on the special journey of hacking the vita . The best moment for me is when I received a mail for the ninja release of HENkaku. A the time, I was super exited that I could finally hack the unhackable thanks to the community, so good memories.

    Thanks again for your article and keep up the good work

    Great article @CIMMERIAN_ITER!
    You’ve described nice piece of hacking history, a tear curls in the eye when I recall that I was following all those events daily through years…
    Thank you Wololo for being here for us!

    Como olvidar cada hazaña, tal como lo dice esta gran historia, algunas veces me sentía desmotivado y creía que no habría luz al final del túnel, pero sin embargo cada aportación de parte de los hackers era una esperanza. Y al final lo consiguieron gracias a todos por su esfuerzo.
