    The PlayStation Vita came quite short with some News for this Month. But don't worry. Developer @TheFloW is still there and he has some very good News for your PlayStation Vita today.

    Since both the newest System Firmwares 3.69 and 3.70 are still not exploitable, Developer @TheFloW gives you in his newest GitHub Announcement an overview about what you can expect in the next few weeks with the main goal that you can prepare your PlayStation Vita with everything which is necessary needed to jailbreak those mentioned System Firmwares to enjoy your PlayStation Vita again with your favourite Homebrews while staying on the newest System Firmware. And the good thing is, it is actually pretty easy for everyone to get prepared for the Release of his newest Jailbreak! The only thing which could get worse is when you miss his deadline, he gave the community to prepare your PlayStation Vitas. Luckily with the 3G Model, you can finish the preparation while being outside and enjoying the sun together with the start of the spring time, like I already did. :)

    PS Vita 3.69/3.70 Jailbreak PSA

    • First of all, thank you for your patience and support, your wait will soon be over. It's been more than half a year since the release of h-encore and it has reached nearly half a million downloads!
      Now it's time for my second and last jailbreak for the PS Vita. Unlike previous exploits chains, this one will not use a WebKit or savedata exploit as entry point, but a novel one.

      The upcoming exploit chain consists of a PSP Emulator Escape. This means it is exploiting bugs in the emulator to escape the sandbox and run native ARM code. While this is cool and technically very interesting, there is a catch: your device must be linked and activated with a PSN account, such that you can download and install a PSP game from the store. The problem is that in case Sony releases a new firmware which fixes this entry point, you'll not be able to access the store anymore and therefore, not be able to hack your device. Hence, some coordination is required, such that nobody misses the chance (if you're maintaining a blog or forum, please stick this PSA on top, so people are aware of this opportunity).

      For that reason, I am giving you 6-8 weeks time to download and install a PSP game, then I will drop the jailbreak. This should also be enough time for you to search and buy a new PS Vita.

    • Follow the instructions below to successfully prepare your device for the hack:

      1. If you're on firmware 3.69, you have two options:
      • Either update to firmware 3.70 (go to Settings → System Update).
      • Or set DNS to (go to Settings → Network → Wi-Fi Settings → Your access point → Advanced Settings and set DNS Settings to Manual and Primary DNS to

      2. Register a PSN account if you don't have one yet (note that only 3 devices can be activated using the same account).

      3. Download and install any PSP/minis game (PS one Classics do not work). There are demos in most regions (if you know a title that is not listed here, please let me know):

      • EU/UK: Ape Quest
      • NA/SG: LocoRoco Midnight Carnival
      • JP: YS seven

      Unfortunately, if you can't find a demo in your region, you must either buy any PSP/minis game, or register a new PSN account in one of the regions listed above.​
      4. Verify that you can launch the PSP/minis game.

      5. Download and install qcma to make a backup of your game (launch Content Manager on your PS Vita and follow the instructions on screen).​

      If you have completed the preparation, you can now sit back and come back in 6-8 weeks for further instructions. It is important that you do not unlink/deactivate your PSN account or restore your settings in this time.

      Furthermore, I am looking for a cool exploit name. Best would be a name that is related to sandbox/emulator escaping. If you have something cool in mind, feel free to make a suggestion.

      That's cool he broke the sandbox man. Would be even cooler if taken a step further and utilizes the vitas power over the psps and the end result is similiar to the features we have in ppsspp

      Reminds me of the UNO PSP Exploit back in 2012 for some odd reason :D

      GREAT ! now I can buy a used vita on ebay without asking for firmware version :) Does it also work with pstv ?

      @TONY-T You don't need be on newest fw if You know how to use proxy. And yes, "PSN game" which must be PSP game (or demo).

      well since this entry point heavily relies on Playstation Store, you guys on 3.69+ probably have to downgrade as soon as you get henkaku installed, since once youre activation is gone (either by factory reset or just a simple memory card swap) your entry point is gone assuming that Sony patched the Playstation Store to only be usable on lets say 3.71+ firmwares.
