Well, it looks like the cat and mouse game is back on with Sony releasing a new update for the PSVita in light of the new hack HENkaku. A lot of us that are not new to the scene knew this was coming but like always just don’t know when it will happen. Most of the time it takes sony just a few days or even a few months to patch exploits and this time it was a whole 10 days.
Like always there is nothing special about this update all it does is patch HENKaku. So that means, no more access to native emulators, homebrew, apps, and whatever else comes to HENkaku. So DO NOT update to 3.61FW if you want to keep using HENkaku.
Remote Play still works on FW3.60 for now but once Sony releases the next FW update for the PS4 it’s going to ask you to update if you are on FW3.60. The next thing is you can use vita update blocker for the next few days if you need access to PSN but get what you need now as vita update blocker only works for so long. You can find vita update blocker here.
If you updated to FW3.61 by accident, or you little brother did it, your kid updated it, or whatever happen. There is some good news, it seems just like before Sony has left the VHBL bubble, custom themes and the PSTV whitelist hax ver2 alone. They only patched HENkaku and access to making any of the hacks.
Now VHBL, custom themes, whitelist hax have to be done on FW3.60 or lower as there is no way to install them on 3.61 since it was just released. Once again DO NOT update to FW3.61 or you will lose HENkaku. If you need any help always check out our guide here and our forums here.
