Custom Firmware ENSO for the PSVita is live!!

Well, we all have been waiting for this and the day is finally here where the PSVita and PSTV get a permanent Custom Firmware! Thanks to the hard work of Team Molecule we now have a CFW, sorry if I said it again but it’s true and we all couldn’t be happier. So what are you waiting for to download ENSO the CFW for the PSVita/PSTV below?

Download: Custom firmware Enos for PSVita/PSTV

Please read the Q & A from team molecule site below:

“Does this work with firmware 3.61/3.63/3.65? No.

How do I use this “vpk”? You need to install HENkaku first. Then open up molecularShell and press “Start” to enable the FTP server. Then connect using FTP client and copy the vpk to “ux0:/data”. On your Vita, browse to “ux0:/data” and select the vpk to install it. Then you should have a new bubble in LiveArea which you can launch to install ensō.

Will this harm my Vita? The short answer is “not likely.” The long answer is that it does make permanent modifications to your system so there’s always the chance that something goes wrong. However, we had months of testing done by over a hundred testers without any major problem so we are fairly confident in the code. Nevertheless, we will not provide any warranty if something wrong does happen so if you do not wish to take the risk, we recommend using the HENkaku offline installer as a risk-free alternative.

How do I uninstall ensō? First, note that you can “deactivate” ensō without uninstalling it by deleting “ur0:tai/boot_config.txt”. You can “reactivate” it again by opening the ensō installer and using the Square option to fix the boot config. Otherwise, you can fully uninstall ensō with the Triangle option. Note that if you no longer wish to use HENkaku, you should clean up any installed homebrew before uninstalling ensō.

Help! I installed a bad taiHEN plugin and my Vita doesn’t boot anymore! You can disable taiHEN plugin loading by holding L during boot.

Help! I messed up something else and my Vita doesn’t boot anymore! You can reset allVita settings (including non-hack related ones) from safe mode by selecting “Restore the PS Vita System”. You can also enter safe mode by disconnecting and reconnecting the battery during a failed boot loop. Note this does not uninstall ensō but keeps it inactive. To reactivate it, you must run the ensō installer and use the Square option to fix the boot config.

Can I see the source? We are currently polishing up the source and it will be released soon. If you are a developer, you can contact us about early access. Here is more information on who we are.”

  1. Yo, so i installed everything as per instructions on the enso homepage, and the molecule logo shows instead of the playstation logo, but for some odd reason still boots into OFW.
    Is anyone else having the same issue, or maybe have remedied the problem?

    • you put enso.vpk inside ux0:data/ ? sorry for my english
      something like that happened to me and i uninstall enso and put on data/
      if you have enso.vpk in another folder doesnt works

      • Yes it does. They wrote the instructions saying ux0:data/ to avoid confusion for noobs. It doesn’t do anything to the system besides installing the installer so the vpk can be installed from anywhere.

    • Its suppose to right…enso? (Menma) nothing really special but the Logo right?

  2. Will someone release cfw on 3.63/3.65?And do you believe someome will create downgrade? I do.

  3. Why nobody made cfw for 3.65? 🙁

  4. I dont have the molecule logo =( but Enso is working after reboots! I get a loading circle instead!

  5. DS3vita won’t work after I deleted it when it was recognized (so I can update it), it wouldn’t show up in recognized bluetooth devices and is stuck on searching even when I did all of the steps right.

    It seems to be Enso’s problem, or is it just me?

    • I had the problem with my vita and you must completely format and restore vita to original settings. Then install henkaku again. enso will still be there. Now ds3vita and ds4vita can work again. I think its because the vita somehow has the old settings. I tried sixasispairing tool also. make sure the ds3 or ds4 plugin is in tai folder and add in config under *KERNEL

      • I installed vitapad and added it to config just fine, fully working.
        So why is ds3vita not working?

        I’m scared in formatting my vita as there are issues people are having with activation and my vita might revert to such a state.

        • you probably already know by now but the ds3 plugin has been updated for enso. If anyone finds this please remove the old skprx file and install the new one. Then make sure to add the correct line to enso config which is in ur0
