Well then, two questions:

1. If I buy a new Vita for this, will I be able to get it to FW 3.60?

2. What level of emulators could this be expected to run?

Hhahah same. Until I can play PC Engine discs on my Vita, even the PSP never toppled the OG Xbox scene. Still so good.

Super excited to perhaps get some old arcade games yet unported running on this!

I'm getting the report screen: "an error has occurred.."
C2-12828-1

It's a fat ps vita.
Anyone else having thins? didn't find anything in here https://henkaku.xyz/usage/

The web browser crashes and an error report dialog appears AFTER “Welcome to HENkaku” pops up

Press “OK” and try again. If this happens more than three times in a row, you should reboot the system and try again.

It took me about 20 tries and three reboots to overcome this, but it just worked. I was about to try a database rebuild.

God it's been a while since I've done anything like this since Wii. Do I just connect it to the FTP and just dump the roms and emulators in or do I need to put them in specific folders.

I had the same error. After you click install it changes the url go.henkaku. Letting the site load again always resulted in the same error for me.
Going back to https://henkaku.xyz and clicking install instead worked. Maybe takes a few tries.

I need an advise from gaffers. My vita tv has an old firmware with the email hack that lets me play all ps vita games on tv. Is it worth the upgrade to 3.60 ?

Also. Is it possible go download the 3.60 and update it manually to a vita later in case song blocked this with a future firmware ?

I'm guessing I am going to need a 64GB memory card and fast, and load it with all the games I want. Or is there a way to get into the download list with an outdated firmware?

I also hope their piracy prevention is effective, I'm worried about the future of the Vita, the indies may also stop making games for it if piracy grows too much :(

Sales have to be decent enough considering the amount of games still being released. Piracy would suck ESPECIALLY for games that don't sell big amounts in the first place.

You must do this every time you reboot the console–that is, every time you turn the console off and on again.

You can usually bypass and still get access to PSN on one firmware below the latest.

Otherwise you can download and transfer most Vita content through a PS3.

Those are, to my knowledge, the only options for a Vita not on the latest firmware.

Considering the best handheld console for emulation right now is n3DS, this should be a step up.

mGBA is .velf, which doesn't install, so it isn't working. Not sure if there is a .vpk file on the webpage? The Showcase links directly to that page, and I just chose the Vita Homebrew download.

I tried Vita Doom which installed but I have no Doom WADs so I couldn't play.

I'm outta time now but I'll keep an eye on this thread to see what I'm missing.

Have never tried emulation Before, but from what I understand you could get games like

NES
SNES
N64
GB
GBC
GBA
DS

PSP
PSV?

If so, how complete libraries, is there any Place where you can see which potential games they could emulate? Might try this after a month or so

Still plenty of PSV games I want to purchase, If I do this I guess i cant purchase any new PSV games hmm

yeah the GBA emulator isn't in the right format from the showcase link. you need .vpk format and it's in .velf, just tried.

just going to chill for now i suppose and watch the vita homebrew community grow.

It does not work with internal memory of the PSTV or Vita 2000. You must have a memory card.

Is it possible to only upgrade to a specific firmware though?

I don't really play games on the Vita so when I say publishers I think more about Ubisoft etc. 😄

Yeah for EA and Ubi it won't matter, they don't make games for it anyway :p The smaller guys like NISA would be hurt by it though.

You can download from PlayStation webpage 3.60 firmware and install the package offline at a later date. As long as you can download the firmware in a computer or something like that you shouldn't have any problem.

Is this easily uninstallable? It can't hurt to try this while 3.6 is still the most recent firmware, but since my Vita library is 90% digital being able to use some emulators wouldn't make up for not being able to access the PS Store once an update hits.

Edit: Oh, this is not a permanent hack :3
