    The evolution continues as the Vita exploit taiHEN reaches Beta 6 and while not officially marked as Stable Team molecule more specifically team member and respected developer yifanlu, tells us in the latest release details that a final release is approaching and also thanks to the evolution of the hack and polishing of it from the developer it has now become much easier to port to other firmwares then it was initially in early taiHEN and HENkaku version. This update provides some fixes and updates the exploit to support VitaShell v1.43.​

    • 大変革 Beta 6

      Thanks to everyone who helped test taiHENkaku! We are approaching the final release. Indeed, the current "beta" is less buggy than HENkaku R6! On a sidenote, the payload now only has six 3.60 specific offsets (excluding the kernel rop). That means porting it to other firmware versions is easier than ever (just dump SceSysmem and find those offsets).

      Developers: Please make sure you are using the latest toolchain from (https://goo.gl/RaEB9L). We made a lot of changes so using an older toolchain to add taiHEN hooks will result in crashes! Also make sure to update your taiHEN development libraries to the latest version.

      If you are not interested in helping test the beta, we recommend that you stick with the old stable release at (https://henkaku.xyz/) instead. To update the beta, reboot and visit http://beta.henkaku.xyz/ from your Vita's browser. To remove the beta, delete molecularShell, reboot, and visit https://henkaku.xyz/ instead.

      New Features

      • Updated molecularShell to 1.43 which supports changing HENkaku config without needing reboot.
      • Re-enabled CRC checks on skprx files to prevent corruption. You should not modify taihen.skprx/henkaku.skprx and should only modify config.txt.
      • Fixed problem where the latest version is not installed
      • Fixed "hold R1 to reinstall"
      • Fixed installer drawing problems when text overflows

    • Missing/Known Issues
      • PSN spoofing no longer works. This might be fixed in the future, but is currently low priority.
      • molecularShell now only shows ux0: and only part of it. This is part of the move to molecularShell being a safe homebrew while VitaShell has full powers. Please install VitaShell manually to access other partitions moving forward.
      • If build the offline installer yourself and point it to beta.henkaku.xyz, you can use offline mode. The release builds will always point to HENkaku stable.

      Please report any other issues to the issue tracker


    • 大変革 Beta 5
      Developers: Please make sure you are using the latest toolchain from (https://github.com/frangarcj/buildscripts/releases) or (https://lolhax.org/bamboo/).

      New Features
      • Rewrote the kernel payload and installer. Installer should be more stable now.​
      • Add ability to update HENkaku config and taiHEN config.txt without needing a reboot. VitaShell needs to be updated to use this feature though.​

      New Features

      • Fixed many bugs that causes instability, memory leaks, and crashes with hooks. Full details here.
      • Fixed dynarec issue resulting in many emulators including PCSX and mGBA not working.

      大変革 Beta 3
      The updated toolchain with support for plugin creation is almost done. Prebuilts for OSX/Windows/Linux should be up sometime this week, although I am not the main party in that project so don't hold me to this. In the meantime, those who are brave can try building the latest toolchain themselves from vitasdk/buildscripts. With the new toolchain, you can add the taiHEN files to your toolchain installation to use the taiHEN APIs.

      New Features

      • VitaShell 1.42 is updated such that HENkaku configuration works and package installation from safe homebrew works.


      大変革 Beta 2
      Sorry for the messy beta 1. I didn't want to break my promise of a 11/1 release so I had to cut many corners. Hopefully this should be a more stable beta, although there are still a lot more to do before it is production ready. Although it is still recommended only for developers, it is now ready for anyone to test and report issues. In filing your bug report, please be very specific in your setup (Vita/VitaTV, memory card?, what apps are used/installed, etc) and in triggering the bug (even if it is not possible to always reproduce it). Before filing any issues, make sure it is not listed below in the known issues section and read the other reported issues to make sure you are not submitting a duplicate ticket (submit a comment instead).

    Installing the Exploit Requires
    Visiting beta.henkaku.xyz from a PS Vita or a PlayStation TV [Vita TV] running firmware version 3.60 .
