PSX-Place's own @atreyu187 has recently shared two guides with us & the Vita Community. One is written by himself and another written by reddit user DarkBlack711 , These two separate guides will remove some of those unwanted Sony ads on the LiveArena of the PS Vita & PlayStation TV, DarkBlack711 shows us how to remove the multi-tasking ads and also made some clever suggestions with modifying it to add things such as HENkaku links, which could be useful to some user's/ Then recently atreyu187 also showed us how to remove the Feature Screen on LiveArena. Both useful guides for HENkaku user's if these in system ads bother you. Checkout these latest HENkaku Guides ..
- How to Modify / Remove multi-tasking menu for Vita/PsTV
- How to Remove the "Featured" Screen on Vita / PsTV
How modify/remove multi-tasking menu for Vita/PSTV
By following this guide you will successfully remove all advertisements on the multitasking menu when you press PS button and you can replace with HENkaku apps or your favorite games for a quick change.
You should know that if you rebuild your database in recovery you will have to do the same thing all over again.
- Enable HENKaku
- Open molecularShell/VitaShell and navigate to ur0:shell/ and there you will see a folder named whats_new. Delete it and restart your PS Vita.
- When your Vita restarts you have to press PS button couple of times, this is so that Vita can download new advertisements.
- When the advertisements pop-up again navigate to ur0:shell/whats_new/np/ with molecularShell/VitaShell and inside that folder you will see whatsnew.xml file. Delete it and create a folder named "whatsnew.xml" without "".
- Restart your PS Vita and enjoy your brand new multitasking menu without those pesky advertisements.
ALSO SOME EXTRA DETAILS BY ATREYU187:
So this is the easiest guide I have ever written. The "Featured" screen for the PSTV is so annoying always making me take a look at it and slowing down what I am trying to do at the time. Sony never updates it with anything new and until @DeViL303 @bitsbubba or some other crafty genius can make use of the XML files I feel it needs to go.
This useless screen isn't even in every region as some countries have seen it as intrusive ad possibly illegal so Sony just didn't add the darn thing. Would have been nice if they gave us a choice to disable this screen.
So here we go as it will take you longer to read this then to actually go the "mod" but here is what is needed to do this. BTW this will also stick after a firmware update to 3.61 if you should so choose. It with my little guide on the permanent v1 whitelist survive the updates.
- PSTV/Vita TV on 3.60
- HENkaku installed and enabled
- File Manager e.g. VitaShell molecularShell or OneLUA
- FTP access (not needed but up to you)

PS VITA / PS TV How to Remove Sony Ads from PS Vita / PsTV Live Area
By STLcardsWS on Oct 22, 2016 at 8:13 PM
New Vita Jailbreak coming in July 2018 (3.65-3.68 HENkaku / 3.65 Enso) from TheFlowAs the PS Vita Community knows hacker/developer TheFlow had discovered a new vulnerability for jailbreaking the PS Vita / PlayStation TV (Vita TV). The developer had planned for a much later releases since the Vita seems to be nearing the end of its life cycle and since official support could cease down the road. The idea being it was better to hold on to this exploit saving it until Sony officially pulled the plug on the device(s). However, since that time another exploit was found and thus this exploit (the first one) has moved up the release date to a new date of >> July 1 2018.
With firmware's 3.65-.3.68 there will be a new window to install the HENkaku hack which is a HEN (Homebrew Enabler), But if your on 3.65 firmware you can even take it a step farther by having the ability to install Enso (the CFW framework), With this soon to be released method TheFlow is saying you will need a Memory Card(see update), as no other storage medium including the system's internal storage will not work.Continue reading

reactPSPLUS Payload - ReActivate PS Plus Games on PS4 5.05 (Release by Zer0xFF)So you have your PS Plus Subscription and well you can't use the games the service offer's because your on firmware 5.05 (exploited PS4 firmware)?. Well, there is now great news there as a solution arises thanks to Zer0xFF as the developer discovered a way to "reset" the timer on the content by tricking the clock by using the new reactPSPLUS payload. The PS Plus subscription requires you to check into PSN from time to time and with an exploited system that is currently not possible. So, this becomes a great solution to regain the goodies from your subscription to PS Plus. Sony states that long as you have an active PS Plus Subscription you will not lose access to your game collection, which as we know is not 100% factual. What they fail to mention is that if you do not update your console to latest firmware and agree to the ever changing Terms of Service's you also lose access to the content EVEN if you are paying for the service. So, hacks like this give power back to the honest user's, Who just enjoy homebrew and system hacks on the hardware they purchased and as well as the content they purchased through various services.Continue reading
