      • Fixed issue where YouTube website did not work
      • Added support for PSTV and Vita Slim internal storage
      • Updated to VitaShell 0.86

      Release 3 (August 27, 2016)
      • PSN spoofing: You can access PSN without updating to 3.61!
      • Safe homebrew support: Developers can optionally mark their homebrews as “safe” and it will not gain restricted API access. We highly recommend developers who are not using such features to update their packages as safe.
      • VitaShell 0.8: Read the release notes from The_FloW for the list of changes to VitaShell.
      • Version string: A callback to the PSP days where every hack would change the system version string. We do that too now (see the screenshot) so we can provide better support to our users.
      • Update blocking: In HENkaku mode, firmware updates using the official servers are blocked. That way you won’t accidentally install 3.61 and it won’t download in the background regardless of your settings.

      Release 2 (August 4, 2016)

      • Dynarec support: Developers can generate ARM code and execute it directly. This aids in JIT engines for emulators.
      • Offline installer: HENkaku can now run without a network connection thanks to work by xyz. He also made a nice writeup that you should check out if you’re interested in the technical details.
      • VitaShell 0.7: When we originally released HENkaku, we forked VitaShell to molecularShell because we didn’t want to spend too much time writing our own file manager. Thanks to The_FloW, our changes have been merged to the official VitaShell codebase and we no longer need molecularShell. This release had added many new features and bug fixes to the shell.

      Release 1 (July 29, 2016)
      • First release

      I see here also possibility for kind of config.txt toggler app. App can rename config on ux0: then ur0: one will be loaded. Then if needed app can rename it again to make ux0: one load.

      Any dev here want to take a challenge to write it? :) @CelesteBlue @SilicaAndPina @Arkanite and others.

      True..but if files are going to be renamed like that, then may as well take it a step further and have it so you can have like 5 different config.txt files and swap between them (and also pick which device to write it to), kinda like my boot_plugins.txt switcher mod.

      Yes, point is that now if something goes wrong, and user will finish with no tai config on ux0: then ur0: one will automatically save his ass. :) So is right time to make that kind of config toggler/selector/(or even)configurator. :)
