If so this utility developer @SilicaAndPina created in collaboration with @CelesteBlue will make the task much easier. . Want to revert some of your modifications or recover from some corrupted files, this utility may be very useful and as an added bonus there an extra feature you can read more about in the release notes.

Developer reprep (@ReRepRep) released O'Clock Vita Minimal. What's that? It's a kernel plugin that allow you to overclock your Vita/PSTV. Specially useful for PSTV users where power consumption is not a problem, and there is no need to disable it ever. Big advantage in that case is that plugin don't need any input from user, just add needed games to config, and forget you got it.
The new HENkaku Settings TheFl0w just recently previewed are now LIVE for ALL HENkaku users!!!! Screenshots taken from my PSTV just now!!! Notice the LAN connection and not the 3G Sim he had enabled. molecularShell is still v1.43 but no longer has the spoof options in the app. As you can see in the last pic (in the screenshots tab). I grab/ PSX-Place!!bed it 4 minutes after going LIVE!!! Go ME!!! That's right folks you seen it first here at where else
Developer bosshunter known from his contribution in to PSP scene released modified version of Camera Patch Lite. Plugin taking little bit different approach to enable right analog support on PSP games played on Vita/PSTV. This resulted in improvement support in some games (eg. SOCOM series).
Evolution continues as some serious progression appears on the horizon for HENkaku user's on firmware 3.60. As a new video shared from Yifan Lu of Team Molecule (creators of HENkaku / TaiHEN) which shows the group is back at it with a new release we will see on the 29th of July. In the teaser video the team showcases HENkaku/TaiHEN active on system boot (unlike having to be launched after system boot currently) and as a little extra spice the team shows what appears to be a custom coldboot modification as well. Is this the progression of a HEN maturing into the first true Custom Firmware for PS Vita & PlayStation TV devices? On the surface it appears that is a possibility as the video teases a bit, but until more details are learned I would caution calling it anything such as CFW, but one thing is for sure this is from a legitimate group that brought us the original hacks and come late July we should have more details with I am sure some teaser and information will arise in between.
Noled is a recent kernel plugin released for the PS Vita created originally by Xerpi, and then has been released in compiled version by reprep (@ReRepRep). This taiHEN (kernel) plugin is very simple as it can becomes very useful when you are gaming or watching video's in the dark and the led light becomes a major distraction. Now you have the option to say goodbye to light while you have this plugin running.
In July 2016, we seen Ben Heck (Hardware Legend) first got his hands on elusive Nintendo PlayStation (SNES-CD) Prototype Console for a teardown demonstration of the textremely rare "urban legend" that came to surface just several years ago, after being located in an attic of the current owners home. It was not in working condition, but we were able to learn alot about the device as Ben Heck compares various parts and modules to the Super Nintendo (See Video Here), Then at various time throughout the year Ben Heck was trying to restore the Prototype Console to a working state and in late July of 2016 we seen Ben Heck make some significant progress and was able to get some portions working but the SNES CD drive was not working and while no official games were available we do have the Homebrew Game Super Boss Gaiden . Then in late November 2016 Ben Heck once again gets a crack at the prototype that change history and while progress was made with the CD drive we still were not able to use the SNES CD add-on but today Ben Heck releases a video titled: "Nintendo PlayStation Prototype: Finally Working!" So, was Ben able to boot Super Boss Gaiden or Another homebrew Game? check it out.... :
The latest homebrew release for HENkaku user's comes from developer vladgalay, who has released a very fun 2d Shooter that is very similar to the game playplay in CSPSP (a homebrew for the PSP), which is a 2-D top down shooter. Flyer Deathmatch is a LUA based game that was created with ONElua and i suggest giving this game a look on either your PS Vita or PlayStation TV that hopefully is on Firmware 3.60 and utilizing the HENkaku exploit as that is the only way you will be playing this VPK file.
Recently developer @BenMitnicK left a message informing us about the latest update to AT9 & AT3 Converter (v2.2) A useful utility for converting audio files, Such as popular formats of wav & mp3 files to codecs such AT9 & AT3 fthat is used by the PSP / PS Vita & PS3 system, so this little tool makes process much easier as there is not many tools out there that will convert easily to those formats.
