    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.
    1. Enable HENKaku
    2. 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.
    3. When your Vita restarts you have to press PS button couple of times, this is so that Vita can download new advertisements.
    4. 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 "".
    5. Restart your PS Vita and enjoy your brand new multitasking menu without those pesky advertisements.
    You should know that if you rebuild your database in recovery you will have to do the same thing all over again.
    Have fun. :)

    I actually just found out, to launch an app change this

    Code:
    <target type="u" >psns:browse?category=STORE-MSF73008-VITAGAMES</target>
    to this

    Code:
    <target type="u" >psgm:play?titleid=VITASHELL</target>
    As an example for new multitasking from the Live Area just replace the VITASHELL with the titleid of whatever game/app you want and you can then launch whatever you like right away. I will post some examples later but @kozarovv @bitsbubba @DeViL303 @Berion @pinky @STLcardsWS I am sure you guys can make good use of this. Maybe I will make some pre-made modded XML files when I have the time.

    Also you can use this with any uri calls to open hidden system apps like PKG installer and more. Here is a list of them.

    Code:
    settings_dlg:
    
    settings_dlg:updater
    settings_dlg:updater::via_downloader
    settings_dlg:updater::com
    settings_dlg:updater::via_game
    settings_dlg:updater::via_mc
    
    settings_dlg:wifi::wps
    settings_dlg:wifi::manual
    
    settings_dlg:signin
    settings_dlg:psn::account_information
    settings_dlg:psn::profile
    settings_dlg:psn::twitter
    
    settings_dlg:custom_themes
    
    settings_dlg:console_info::psm
    
    settings_dlg:reset::format_mc_for_promote      !!!!INSTA-FORMAT!!!!!
    
    settings_dlg:debug::crash_test ---> Crashes the System
    settings_dlg:sandbox::generic_page1 ---> Error
    
    settings_dlg:psn::profile::account_panel_selection (dex only?)
    photo:delete
    photo:browse?category=ALL
    
    music:delete
    music:browse?category=ALL
    
    video:delete
    video:browse?category=ALL
    video:browse?category=ALL&content_id=21617......
    
    email:?body=LoremIpsum&attach=ux0:/calendar/vitacal.ics
    scecalendar:type=schedule_detail&uid=201607301930002472&date=20160730
    
    psnreg:
    pscloud:
    psns:demo
    psvp:play?url=
    psnmsg:chatview
    
    psns:browse?category=
    psns:browse?product=
    psns_in_game:browse?category=
    psns_in_game:browse?product=
    
    psns:redeem?code1=XXX&code2=XXX&code3=XXX
    Even more uri calls can be found on VitaDevWiki

    @atreyu187 , I've got this setup on my pstv using the henkaku title id, but is there a way to open up the henkaku install button instead of molecular shell? maybe using the browser? I'm not sure what the title id is of that.

    nm. I figured it out. u need to use the go henkaku site with http: as its prefix. I looked at the template.xml for henkaku which has the location of the button and the website used. now, I'm just placing that in front for quick access. :-p

    No but you can set it to open the web browser with the URL inside. It will open to HENkaku.xyz/go to enable hack.

    thanks. I figured that out last night. I found the file, template.xml, that henkaku uses to call the button. however, I found no way to call the button itself through the what's new.xml. that's when I thought it would be much simpler just to call the website url instead. that's what I've done with the what's new.xml in the above post. I placed it in slot 1 which I'm assuming those keys correspond to. the icons rn't mine though. I got them from another member's post. I was going to try making an icon for ark using the same dimensions, but I don't use ark much, so I didn't save it.
