    HENkaku /TaiHEN exploit for 3.60 Firmware
    (Patched in 3.61 and later)

      • Exploit (Currently best Exploit): HENkaku - A Native PS Vita / PlayStation TV (aka VitaTV) exploit for firmware 3.60 - The Following tabs on this post is dedicated to that exploit

      A Quick Overview of Tabs:

      • Requirements
      • Updating to Firmware 3.60 (from a previous firmware)
      • How to Install HENkaku Exploit
      • Warning: Dangerous Files
      • Installing Vita Homebrew
      • Overview of Vita Applications
      • Exploiting the PSP emulator on HENkaku (eCFW on PSP)
      • FAQ

    • Requirements
      • A PS VITA or PlayStation TV [Vita TV]
      • Official Firmware 3.60 ONLY (note: HENkaku was patched in v3.61 and later)
      • Internet connection
      • PC - for moving files (incl. vpk packages) between PC and your console
      • Internet router (For smoother experience your console and PC should use same home network)

    • How to update to 3.60 Firmware

      Simple Version
      • Set your DNS to 212.47.229.76 and choose to update from Wi-Fi. Proceed only if the message says "A new version of the system software is available. Firmware 3.60 (変革 Compatible)". That's it!

      Detailed Version
      1. Open the Settings app
      2. Select "Network"
      3. Select "Wi-Fi Settings"
      4. If you are not connected to the internet, do so now. Select your current connection (there should be a green dot to the left).
      5. Select "Advanced Settings"
      6. Under "DNS Settings" choose "Manual"
      7. Under "Primary DNS" set it to 212.47.229.76
      8. Leave "Secondary DNS" blank. Make sure "Proxy Server" is set to "Do Not Use". Press OK.
      9. Back out to the main settings screen. Select "System Update" and then "Update Using Wi-Fi."
      10. If you get an error saying your system is up to date, that means either your Vita is on 3.60 already or your Vita is > 3.60 and is not supported by HENkaku
      11. Otherwise you will see a pop-up saying there is a new update. Make sure the message says "3.60 (変革 Compatible)"! If the message does not say that, do not proceed and try to repeat these steps to see if you missed something.
      12. After ensuring you are updating to "3.60 (変革 Compatible)", proceed with the steps on screen to update.
      13. After updating to 3.60, you can follow steps 1-5 again and then set "DNS Settings" back to "Automatic" to restore your DNS settings.

      Other Features

      Alternative/offline way for PSTV-only users:

    • How to: Henkaku Installation
      HENkaku is temporary hack that need to be enabled again when You power off your console. Firstly only way to re-enable exploit was connecting to developers site. Luckily this restriction is currently outdated. Internet connection is needed only during initial installation.

      1. First install:
      • Open https://henkaku.xyz from the built-in web browser on your PS Vita or PSTV
      • Click on “Install” button
      • Wait until download/install process will finish, browser should close itself automatically

      Troubleshooting:

      a).
      Error C2-12828-1 and an error report dialog appears:
      • Try to close your browser completely, and try again
      • Try to reboot your PS Vita or PSTV
      Note: This is common error, don't give up here. Sooner or later it will install.

      b). Installation look successful but it stuck on black screen:
      • Press the PS button and close the browser manually. Installation should be successful.
      2. Enable unsafe homebrew
      This step is needed for most common operations on your hacked console, but keep in mind that option is exactly that what it name is suggesting. For more info read: Dangerous vita homebrew tab.
      • Open molecularShell
      • press Start button
      • Change "Enable unsafe homebrew" to "on"

      What you should know:
      After enabling unsafe homebrew you will find a lot of new partitions on your Vita/PSTV (while using molecularShell/VitaShell). Keep in mind that you can't touch them if you want your console alive! Sounds serious? Because it it serious. Only partition safe to use is ux0: that is your memory card or internal memory card, and can be restored by formating itself if completely messed.

      3. FTP connection:
      This step is needed for most operations on your console, is only known way to transfer needed files to your memory card/internal memory before you completely hack it. And is only way to make henkaku offline. Next steps assuming you selected filezilla as your FTP client.
      • Download Filezilla Client to your PC (Windows, Linux, MAC supported, also android alternative is available, my suggestion is AndFTP)
      • Make sure your wifi is enabled or your ethernet cable is connected to both, your PC, and your console. And you are connected to the same network (in most cases to the same router).
      • Open molecularShell on your console
      • Open filezilla on your PC

      Console side:
      • In molecularShell press SELECT button to start a FTP server.
      • Read displayed IP address and port

      PC side:
      • After turning on filezilla you should see tab with variables like "Host, Username, Password, Host
      • Type IP address displayed in molecularShell in "Host"
      • Type "1337" in "Port
      • Click "Quick connect"

      Now You should have root of of your Vita/PSTV file system displayed in right window/side of filezilla.

      4. Make HENkaku offline hack:
      Before doing next step you need to open your email app minimum one time to allow system to create needed files. Just open email app, and close it one time.

      Transferring/Installing vpk file:

      • Download to your PC "offlineinstaller.vpk" here: https://github.com/henkaku/offline-installer/releases/tag/1.0
      • Transfer it to your Vita/PSTV ux0: partition using FTP by drag'n'drop from download location to ux0: (will be cleared// kozarovv)
      • In molecularShell go to ux0: and click on your freshly transferred "offlineinstaller.vpk" and install it.

      Next step:
      • Go to Live area (PS Vita/PSTV main menu) and run offlineInstaller bubble
      • Follow the on screen instructions: press CROSS to install
      • Installation done. From now on your email app is your way to run HENkaku, internet connection is not needed

      5. Running HENkaku offline
      Now is good time to Power off your console, and test newly installed offline hack. :)
      • On freshly powered on console go to email app
      • If you have multiple email accounts, select "HENkaku Offline"
      • Select "Inbox", then click on the first email
      • Now you need to wait patiently until you will see the same screen as with online installation (black screen with text and molecule logo)
      • Email app closed - you are in HENkaku world

      Troubleshooting:

      a). Error C2-12828-1 and an error report dialog appears when in "first email":
      • Try to close your email app completely, and try again
      • Try to reboot your PS Vita or PSTV

      Note: This is common error, don't give up here. Sooner or later it will go to next step.

      b). Offline re-enabling look successful but it stuck on black screen:
      • Press the PS button and close the browser manually. Installation should be successful.

      6. You got it.
      Basically you followed all needed steps to install HENkaku including offline installation. Congratulations, next tabs will guide you how to make your console filled with your favorite homebrew.

      From now to enable HENkaku offline after powering off console you need to:
      • Go to email app
      • select "HENkaku Offline"
      • Select "Inbox", then click on the first email
      • Now you need to wait patiently until you will see screen with molecule logo
      • Email app closed - you are in HENkaku world again


    • Warning: Dangerous Vita Homebrew

      Next tab is assuming that You have enabled unsafe homebrew for smoother user experience with HENkaku exploit. Is not mandatory step, but highly recommended. But is named unsafe? Yes, name is not accidental, is because some dumb people that tried to call themselves developers, made dangerous apps that can brick you console. You need to know that enabling unsafe homebrew will allow apps like that to work!

      Explaination:
      Most dangerous apps are deleting os0: partition content making PERMNENT brick. For now there isn't known solution to retrieve your Vita/PSTV from that state. Even hardware flashers are useless here (maybe if you have dump made hardware way..).

      Known dangerous apps (by known file names):

      IDU Mode enablers (can be used by Advanced users, but currently there is no reason to do that):

      IDU is mode used in kiosk Vita, most dangerous thing is that console in that mode will update itself AT BOOT automatically to latest available firmware! And by that you will close your Vita/PSTV for homebrew forever. Also you can seriously mess your system (incl. perma-brick) in that mode!

    • How to Install Homebrew
      If you followed previous steps then you are already know-how. Step is explained in tab " How to - Henkaku installation" at fourth point named "Make HENkaku offline hack" in substep "Transferring/Installing vpk file" but let me explain this again with some more details. Most common and most universal way for file transfer on Vita/PSTV is FTP transfer. PSTV users can also use uma0: usb drive mount point (explained below).

      FTP setup (should be already done if you following that guide):
      • Download Filezilla Client to your PC (Windows, Linux, MAC supported, also android alternative is available, my suggestion is AndFTP)
      • Make sure your wifi is enabled or your ethernet cable is connected to both, your PC, and your console. And you are connected to the same network (in most cases to the same router).
      • Open molecularShell on your console
      • Open filezilla on your PC

      Console side:
      • In molecularShell press SELECT button to start a FTP server.
      • Read displayed IP address and port

      PC side:
      • After turning on filezilla you should see tab with variables like "Host, Username, Password, Host
      • Type IP address displayed in molecularShell in "Host"
      • Type "1337" in "Port
      • Click "Quick connect"

      Transferring and installing files:
      Vita homebrew world is using installable files with vpk extension. Most popular apps that can install those files are:
      • molecularShell (based on VitaShell - lack of some advanced features)
      • VitaShell (PS vita AIO app, all you need to manage your files, including vpk's one)

      Transfer thru FTP - molecularShell/VitaShell, and install:
      • Download vpk file that you want to install to your PC (Good place to find VPK's: http://www.psx-place.com/resources/?prefix_id=6)
      • Transfer it to your Vita/PSTV ux0: partition using FTP by drag'n'drop from PC download location to ux0: partition. IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MOVE YOUR FILE TO ux0: NOT TO ANY OTHER PARTITION!!!
      • File can be transferred into folder on ux0:, don't need to be into root of that location
      • After file transfer is done. In molecularShell go to ux0:, find your file and click on it.
      • Confirm you want to install it
      • Done, your new app will be added to LiveArea

    • Hacking the PSP Emulator with Vita / PlayStation TV Firmware
      There are currently two known PSP built in emulator hacks. Good news is that you can have both of them installed same time! If you already read previous tabs you know about "unsafe homebrew", every step described below is assuming that you previously enabled unsafe homebrew in molecularShell settings.

      ARK eCFW
      Introduction: ARK eCFW is known Vita/PSTV PSP built in emulator hack used even before HENkaku was released. Most noticable reason why you want to use it, is enabled PSX emulation. It's not outdated, but it looks like developement is currently stopped.

      Adrenaline eCFW
      Introduction: Adrenaline eCFW is first HENkaku enabled PSP emulator hack. Have built in ability to use a custom graphics filters, big advantage is that Adrenaline is working also on native Vita side. This can bring many nice features in future releases, like currently available GTA Remastered plugin to use right analog on PSP GTA games. Developer promising to add PS1 support, and 64MB ram support, usage of ur0 as a memory stick, and even savestates. Project is currently under developement, and probably we will see many updates in the future.

      Installation:
      First step:
      I faced some problems using build in molecularShell so after enabling unsafe homebrew download latest VitaShell.vpk here: https://github.com/TheOfficialFloW/VitaShell/releases Install it, and follow below instructions using VitaShell, not molecularShell!

      My installation tutorial assuming that you want both, ARK and, Adrenaline. And if you decided to have both of them, please follow my steps EXACTLY in that order:

      Download:

      Copy all files to ux0: partition using FTP, and install all of them. Now when you have all of them installed, close VitaShell and go to LiveArea (main menu of PS Vita PSTV).

      Install process:
      For safe install you should follow this guide EXACTLY step by step. Way can look little bit unnecessary, but I found it most successful.

      Vita/PSTV Activation:

      • Run ePSP Bubble Installer from live area
      • Press X to install bubble
      • After reboot remove created game bubble from live area

      Adrenaline:
      • Re-enable HENkaku via email app or thru www
      • Run Adrenaline Easy Installer
      • Select option "4. Advanced Options"
      • Select "Install a small PSP Basegame if needed"
      • After succesful install console will reboot
      • Re-enable HENkaku via email app or thru www
      • Run Adrenaline Easy Installer (next step REQUIRE internet connection on Vita/PSTV)
      • Select option 1. Install Adrenaline eCFW
      • Select NPEZ00104 - BIGHEADSNOOKER
      • Confirm
      • Wait until download, and install will finish, and push X to reboot
      • Re-enable HENkaku via email app or thru www
      • Run freshly created "Adrenaline" bubble
      • Wait until install process will finish, and push X (install is one time process, later it will start to XMB)

      ARK:
      • Re-enable HENkaku via email app or thru www
      • Run ARKFast
      • Push SQUARE (is important to push square, not cross! Or you will mess Adrenaline install)
      • After successful install push Cross (X)
      • Re-enable HENkaku via email app or thru www
      • Have fun!

      Cleaning:
      This step will remove unnecessary installers from your live area

      A: No, there is no way to install HENkaku on that firmware

      Q: Can I downgrade my Vita/PSTV?
      A: No, there is no way to downgrade your firmware

      Q: Is there a permanent hack for Vita/PSTV?

      Q: Can I buy new device, and it will be hackable?
      A: In PSTV case you can be completely sure that new, not used device will be on firmware lower that 3.60. In vita case is not a rule, but is highly possible (confirm vita case, PSTV 100% ok// kozarovv)

    Thread is heavily updated during latest 24 hours, so I though is good time to refresh it on forum. Good way to that is post here changelog from previous state to actual one. :)
    • Added almost everything that new user should know.
    • Removed W.I.P. marks as thread is "Ready to go" - of course there is still place to improve some stuff
    • Added simple way to update to 3.60
    • Improved requirements tab
    • Added guide to install henkaku online
    • Added guide to make henkaku offline hack
    • Added dangerous homebrew list with small explaination
    • Added Installing homebrew guide
    • Added FTP setup guide
    • Added BIG list of Vita/PSTV homebrew sorted by name and category
    • Added way to hack PSP emulator incl. both ways in same time
    • Improved F.A.Q. - but this actually will be build by users questions, so for now is not delightful yet.

    in my last vita tutorial, I have noted the two dns servers to block updates in IDU mode. when I first used IDU on my vita, I blocked the connection, deleted my wifi, and turned on airplane mode due to paranoia, but @atreyu187 later told me that the dns servers which r for henkaku also work in IDU mode. that's what I did on my pstv since there was no way to use a usb cable to connect to the cma to install pkgs. it worked out perfectly though. @kozarovv u might add that as an annotation. great job on the lists though. I wasn't familiar with many of the dangerous vpk files except for duck hunt. :)

    I revived my PSTV (actually I lost it in my room, and now found it XD) so I messed little bit with PSTV again. I just want to said that some things are changed since that guide was wrote, and much of that can be done in simpler way. Anyway guide is still valid, and safe.

    I was thinking about making changes to some steps right now, but due to Enso release in 2 weeks I wait for it. No smartest move to change anything now, when 29.07 a lot of things can change.

    psp, playstation, and most vita backups r playable. u can also do some cool mods, play translations, emulators, homebrew, etc.
