Well well seems TheFlow has been really busy lately. Showcasing his latest contribution to the Vita scene. This time is a full fledged eCFW for the PSP emu. ARK which was in talks about being ported was for 6.60 PSP firmware and would have needed to have been adapted for 6.61 but Mr. Coldbird simply didn't have the time to port this over. So today TheFlow announced his new 6.61 based eCFW which looks to be much like the fan favorite TNV eCFW using the infamous XMB interface.
Here is a release that some of you will enjoy as developer usineur has released HOTA (Heart of the Alien) , which is the sequel to Another World which was also recently ported to the PS Vita & PlayStation TV.. This release is a GekiHEN Contest entry and is a port of the Reversed Engine (originally by Gil Megidish). The HOTA storylines continues where Another World ends but taking the role of Bubby the alien you know from Another World
In my previous post about HENkaku KOTH challenge I mentioned that something good gonna happen when HENkaku KOTH will finish. Now member of Molecule team Yifan Lu officially announced when source code will be released. Announcing by the way a "major update" to HENkaku exploit. Is worth to mention that in the mean time st4rk also solved final stage of HENkaku kernel ROP chain, which mean he also finished KOTH challenge. But this is not over yet, Yifan mentioned there is a third challenger (group) that probably did it, but they want to stay quiet for now. I guess that group is known from PS3 scene, but this is only my unconfirmed assumption.​
Yep you heard me right World of Final Fantasy is a 3.61 game and can run on HENkaku. Seems a user got WoFF a day early. While the game has the 3.61 update you can still install and run the game with a 3.60 enabled HENkaku Vita. It will ask if you want to install 3.61 update. Just decline with O button to proceed and run the game. But no updates or DLC that comes with the game. Just like Corpse Party that needed 3.55 that I could run from cart on 3.36 this same flaw exist for this new game. PSN still will require 3.61 to install so if this game is a must play buy the cart or if you must have the DLC buy the PS4 version. Or of course buy a 3.61 Vita. Game does not work with v1 v2 or combined v1 & v2 whitelist on PSTV but hopefully the new bypass that was recently found will allow this to work on PSTV.

VITAident is a handy utility for HENkaku enabled devices by developer Joel16, with the roll out of version 0.3 we see a new alternative GUI version (see included pics) or the original text version if you prefer something simpler is also available. In v0.3 VITAident is a bit more friendlier to the PlayStation TV [aka VitaTV] as some information that does not pertain to the device is not displayed , plus a few other changes as outlined in the included release quote from joel16.
