    Default PlayStation Vita: HENkaku


    HENkaku works on firmware 3.55 - 3.73
    Current version of OFFICIAL firmware - 3.73


    • What is HENkaku?
      • HENkaku is the first ever homebrew enabler for PS Vita and PSTV. It is akin to jailbreaking your iPhone or rooting your Android device.
        Homebrew are games and other software not officially approved. For example, VitaDoom is a port of the classic game DOOM and mGBA lets you play GameBoy Advanced ROMs. You can find more examples in the showcase.
        Best of all, HENkaku is 100% free. No cost. No ads. No “donations”.

    • What is Ensō?
      • Ensō - A software hack that allows you to launch a hack into HENkaku when you turn on your console without the user's participation and without an Internet connection (permanent firmware, so-called "Nesletajka") ONLY 3.60 / 3.65.

    • What is h-encore(2)?
      • h-encore - A hack allowing temporary (before rebooting) hacking of HENkaku on a console with firmware 3.65 / 3.67 / 3.68
