    Interesting. Too bad you need a vita with the 3G modem. I'm curious if the wifi only models still had the onboard port so you could install ( though you wouldn't be able to easily access the sd card). I have a 1001 model that's been sitting in a drawer forever. Most vita only games I could care to play you can use the vita tv or ported to PS4/ pc. Dunno, I might just sell it to someone here to play with.

    so once you get the right firmware message as seen above go ahead and upgrade.

    Then install HENkaku

    http://henkaku.xyz/

    To install it simply type this > https://henkaku.xyz in your vita's browser and it'll take over from there and it should install MoleculeShell automatically. Sometimes you might get a certain error. if so shut it off and try again. Eventually you'll get it. Also once you have MoleculeShell installed, you can reinstall HENkaku much quicker and easier right from the main menu.

    What MoleculeShell is, is what you will use to transfer .vpk installation files using a FTP client like filezilla to the Vita memory card. There are 2 .vpk files you need. VitaShell and Adrenaline but more on that later.

    in MoleculeShell go to Henkaku settings and turn on allow unsafe mode so you can start installing stuff. Then scroll down to reboot.

    reinstall moleculeshell and launch. Once in, press select. it'll enter ftp mode and show an IP address. Plug that address into your FTP application and connect to the Vita.

    then get VitaShell.vpk file

    https://github.com/TheOfficialFloW/V...eases/tag/1.61

    copy it to the ux0 folder on the Vita using FTP. Then on the Vita, click it and it ask to install. Go ahead and do so.

    Now that you have VitaShell you can plug in your vita to a computer and it'll read it as a removable device. It works a lot like Molecule except pressing select triggers USB mode instead of FTP mode. You should be able to see most of your folders on your computer. Unfortunately the ones you need are hidden so you have to go to your folder options in PC's Control Panel > File Explorer Options and set it to show hidden files.

    Attachment 44962

    should look like that. Now you should have full access.

    Thats it for now. I'll post the rest (mainly how to install Adrenaline) below if you want. Or if you have any questions let me know.
    Never got around to thanking you for this! Going through the steps right now - would love to hear more about Adrenaline. Thanks again!

    one other question - does molecule still need to be reinstalled via the site every single time I power on?

    Like, is there no way to mod the system permanently?!

    Molecule is a softmod. If you turn off vs go into standby, then yes every time

    The perm henkaku should be out next month, so I'm definitely interested in that. Doing the email mod when "remote" from wifi sucks sometimes to get it to load.

    it's been ages since I touched my PSTV, but it's been plugged in. Guess we'll see if i'm running the right FW to test this out.

    Yeah a permanent hack will make me revisit this - as it is now, it's too much a pain in the ass

    Really? I dont find the current hack painful at all. Maybe its because its the same as how my psp has been for years but i dont mind booting CFW everytime. Especially on Vita where you the app bubble right there. Just click it on power up and it does the rest.
