Here is what they have to say on this very user-friendly and awesome set up we all get to use.

To install you must use the PS vita web browser and just click the orange box  HERE within the PS Vita Browser, you will get a “Welcome to HENkaku”, hit ok and  it will install then back out then you will see your new bubble.

The first time you install HENkaku, the molecularShell bubble will be added to your LiveArea. This will be your portal to installing homebrew.

Installing Homebrew

  1. The homebrew package you wish to install should be a file with the .vpk extension.
  2. Make sure Wifi is enabled and you are connected to the same network as the host computer.
  3. Open “shell” by launching the bubble.
  4. Press SELECT to start a FTP server. Please note that the FTP server is not password protected. Only run it on a trusted local network.
  5. Note the IP address displayed in a message popup.
  6. Open your FTP client on the host computer and connect to that IP address.
  7. Navigate to “ux0” (this is the root of your memory card) and you can upload the .vpk package here or in any subdirectory.
  8. Once you upload all the packages you wish to install you can disconnect the client.
  9. Back in molecularShell, press CIRCLE to stop the FTP server.
  10. Navigate to “ux0:” and then to where you placed the packages. To install, select the package and press X.

For apps such as realboy you will need to go to your “ux0” and make a folder called anything you want i recommend GB roms  it stands out and place your roms in there.

I have to say this is easy for the most part, and see many good things ahead in its future. There was one hiccup, I was unable to get doom to work or GBA since it hasn’t been converted yet but  I’ll keep trying. We will be keeping a look out for more and help any problems that may come up .

Thank you for your hard work  Davee, Proxima, xyz, and YifanLu. We couldn’t all be here without your hard work 🙂

  5. what app are you to use to convert files to .vpk i’ve been using vpk.exe( from valve) and getting errors about incorrect format

  6. How can i Install mGBA? i download a .7z instead of .VPK, thx for help

  7. How can i install velf hb? how can i change them to vpk

  8. Filezilla let’s me connect to the FTP server but i can’t do anything

  9. I can’t recall, is there a safe way to block vita updates?

    • Just turn on the proxy with the wrong info, but no real way block updates. Unless you do it manually in your router.

      • If you have auto download updates disabled, does it have a constant nag about updates being available? Is there any risk in not having any proxy or router blocks set up? Haven’t really touched my vita since the 3.52 exploit. Can’t really remember how it works.

  10. I’ll wait for it to be ported to older firmwares. Really looking forward to it though because even after a full reset on 3.52 I still can’t get the email hacks to work. Yes I’ve done the setup reset stuff. Still doesn’t work. I just want some psp and ps1 emulation to go, and this would be perfect for it.

  11. I’m on 3.36. If i update to 3.60 my PSP shell will get freaked up 🙁
