Ps vita henkaku


What is HENkaku?

The revolution is here. Unlock your Vita and run unofficial games and applications.

Install

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 Game Boy Advance ROMs. You can find more examples in the showcase.

Best of all, HENkaku is 100% free. No cost. No ads. No “donations”.

How do I get it?

Visit https://henkaku.xyz from the built-in web browser on your PS Vita and press the “Install” button to install HENkaku. You must do this every time you reboot the console–that is, every time you turn the console off and on again.

What are the requirements?

You need a PS Vita or PSTV running system firmware 3.60. Unfortunately, it is not possible to run HENkaku on any device running a higher firmware version and it is also not possible to downgrade your system firmware.

In order to transfer homebrew to your device, you also need a FTP client for your computer. We recommend FileZilla. Finally, you need an internet connection to install HENkaku.

tl;dr:

  • Vita on firmware 3.60
  • Internet connection
  • FTP client on your PC

It is important that you never update your Vita past 3.60 if you ever wish to use HENkaku now or in the future. If you do update, all your installed homebrew will no longer work and you cannot install any homebrew in the future.

Buying a Vita?

If you are considering purchasing a new PS Vita or PSTV in order to use HENkaku, follow the upgrade instructions in order to upgrade to 3.60 and not the latest firmware. Because Sony has stopped producing new Vita units in the west, all brand new stock except the latest Japan only colors come with an old firmware. Therefore we recommend buying new rather than preowned or refurbished.

Installing HENkaku

For support in English, ask for help at HENkaku on Discord. If you appreciate this guide, we accept Donations.

HENkaku is an exploit chain for the PS Vita (TV) which will allow for the installation of homebrew applications to the LiveArea Screen. It is only compatible with the firmware version 3.60.

Note that the HENkaku exploit chain is not “persistent” (meaning it does not remain installed after a reboot). Fortunately, this is only a temporary restriction until HENkaku Ensō is installed on the next page.

In addition to running the HENkaku exploit, we will also enable access to “unsafe” homebrew which gives extended permissions to homebrew applications. This idea could be considered analagous to the “administrator” mode on a computer.

If you have a PS Vita 1000, you must also have an official Sony memory card (of any size) to follow this guide. This restriction does not apply to the PS Vita 2000 or PS TV as those devices have a built-in memory card.

What You Need

  • An internet connection on your PS Vita (TV)

Instructions

Section I - Launching HENkaku
  1. Launch the browser and go to the following URL on your device:
  2. Tap “Install”
  3. Read the disclaimer, then tap “Install”
    • If you get an error and cannot proceed, follow this troubleshooting guide
  4. If the exploit was successful, you will now have a bubble on your LiveArea screen named “molecularShell”.
    • If the exploit was successful but the molecularShell application is missing, perform the exploit again and press R1 when prompted to re-install molecularShell
Section II - Configuring HENkaku
  1. Launch the Settings application
  2. Navigate to HENkaku Settings
  3. Check “Enable Unsafe Homebrew”
  4. Return to HENkaku Settings menu
  5. Close the Settings application

Continue to Installing Ensō (3.60)

Install Henkaku Enso for PS Vita on 3.60

Enso allows Henkaku to stay permanently on the Vita even after shutting it down. This means the PS Vita will remain “hacked.” This guide install Enso for those who downgraded/upgraded their Vita to 3.60.

Files Needed

Enso for 3.60: GitHub Link VitaShell: GitHub Link 

Step 1: Turn on WiFi to install Henkaku.

  • Enable Wifi on the Vita and then go to the broswer.
  • Go to http://henkaku.xyz and touch Install.
    • If you get an error screen, press Ok
  • Wait for everything in the molecule screen to finish installing.

Step 2: Download and Transfer Enso and VitaShell.

  • Download Enso and VitaShell (if you downgraded you should already have VitaShell Installed).
  • Go to the home screen on the Vita and scroll down to the newly installed Molecular Shell and launch it.
  • Press Select to bring up the FTP server information.
  • Transfer the ENSO and Vitashell vpk through FTP to any folder in ux0 (I usually create a VPK folder).

Step 3: Install ENSO and Vitashell.

  • Install Enso and VitaShell in the folder they were transferred to.
  • Press X to confirm installation of both vpks.
  • Go back out to the home page and go to Settings.
  • Go to Henkau Settings and Enable Unsafe Homebrew.

Step 4: Go Back to the Home Page and Launch Enso.

  • Go to the Home page and scroll down and launch Enso.
  • Press O to accept the terms and conditions.
  • Press X to start the installation process.
  • Once installation is complete, press any button to reboot (this may take a while).
  • Now when booting up you should see the Enso logo instead of the PlayStation logo.

Step 5:  Spoof Firmware.

  • Go to Settings, Henkaku Settings, and then Spoofed Version.
  • Make sure Enable Version Spoofing is checked.
  • Enter the newest firmware, which is 3.70.

The next two steps are for those who used Modoru to downgrade their Vita and want to load their previous hacks.

Step 6:  Delete ux0:tai.

  • Launch VitaShell and to go ux0:tai.
  • Highlight the tai folder in ux0 and press Triangle and then X on delete.
    • IF your old renamed tai folder is in ux0, rename it back to tai. Else move on to step 7. 

Step 7: Rename old Tai folder. 

  • In VitaShell go to ur0:tai if your renamed folder used to be ur0:tai.
  • Highlight boot_confiq.txt, press Triangle and then Copy.

  • Go back to your old tai folder (I renamed mine T), highlight the .., press Triangle and then Paste.

  • Press O to go back then highlight tai, press triangle, and then Delete.

  • Rename the original tai folder (T in my case) back to tai (press triangle and then Rename).
  • Press Start and then Reboot.

“VII – Installing Games, updates and DLC I: PSVita VPK

You need: -A hacked console with latest VitaShell -A PC

–VPKShrink

Overview Installing VPKs on a console is done through VitaShell. It extracts the VPK file on the console and places it on the required folders, while doing this it also creates the needed files to launch the games from bubbles, however, this requires you to have double the free memory for the game you want to install and because the unpacking is too slow, this process takes too much time.

Using VPKShrink, we can speed up the process by doing half of the work on a computer. Since only certain small files need to be installed by VitaShell we take advantage of this by unpacking and repacking the VPK into 2 serapeted files and VPKShrink does just that automatically. After this is done, we transfer a smaller VPK file renamed as “Install-[GameID].vpk” where [GameID] means the actual GameID of the game you want to install, which is automatically grabbed by VPKShrink too if possible (most of the times) and after that’s installed and the needed files are already on the console memory, then we proceed to copy over the rest of the files that are the actual game data.

Process 1) Take your “[GameFile].vpk” and drop it over VPKShrink, a window will open: -Change to Safe Mode? Y > This will make the vpk safe and you remove any risk related to bricks. -Change title id(s)? N > This will make the files keep the proper GameID so you know what you’re installing. -Let it extract the files, once it is done a message will appear and any key will close the window.

NOTE: This process generates 2 files: an “Install-[GameID].vpk” and a “[GameID]” folder that contains the rest of the game.

2) Transfer “Install-[GameID].vpk” to “ux0:\app” with the USB transfer mode of VitaShell. -Press (SELECT) on VitaShell to toggle it. -For Windows users: you need to activate the “Show hidden files, folders and drivers” and uncheck the “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)” options in your Folder options.

3) In VitaShell, install the “Install-[GameID].vpk”

TIP: Once it is installed, you can delete the .vpk file since it isn’t needed anymore.

4) Now transfer over the “[GameID]” Folder to “ux0:\app” folder. NOTE: You’re meant to merge a “[GameID]” folder that comes from your computer and the one that was created by VitaShell.

5) Get out of VitaShell and check your new game bubble, launch it and test if it is working, as it should.

6) If your game comes with an update: -Transfer the “[GameUpdate].vpk” to your console and install it with VitaShell

TIP: Once it is installed, you can delete the .vpk file since it isn’t needed anymore.

7) If you game comes with DLC: -Create this folder on VitaShell “ux0:\addcont_plain”

TIP: You can create new folders on VitaShell with the (TRIANGLE) menu

-Transfer your DLC Folder(s) from your computer to that folder. NOTE: Your DLC folders should be already inside a folder with your [GameID], for example “ux0:\addcont_plain\[GameID] folder\[DLC folders here]”

TIP: You can backup your installed games with QCMA.

VIII – Installing Games, updates and DLC II: PSTV VPK

You need: -A hacked console with latest VitaShell -A PC

–VPKShrink

-QCMA (only for Memory Card method)

-An USB Drive (only for USB Drive method)

Overview Installing VPKs on a console is done through VitaShell. It extracts the VPK file on the console and places it on the required folders, while doing this it also creates the needed files to launch the games from bubbles, however, this requires you to have double the free memory for the game you want to install and because the unpacking is too slow, this process takes too much time.

Memory Card Method (Requires Activated Console) 1) Download and install latest QCMA from here NOTE: This software is used to transfer files to the console, manage backups and other things like photos and videos, without updating our console to the latest version. To use it you need a previously activated Vita (after of July 29th, 2017, 3.60 Vitas can’t be activated anymore).

2) Take your “[GameID].vpk” and drop it over VPKShrink, a window will open: -Change to Safe Mode? Y > This will make the vpk safe and you won’t risk briks when you install. -Change title id(s)? N > This will make the files keep the proper ID so you know what you’re installing. -Let it extract the files, once it is done a message will appear and any key will close the window.

NOTE: This process generates 2 files: an “Install-[GameID].vpk” and a “[GameID]” folder that contains the rest of the game.

3) Download this NOTE: This is a special PSP save file you will place on your QCMA PSPsavefile folder -Default route: “C:\Users\[User]\Documents\PS Vita\PSAVEDATA\[16DigitsFolder]” -In the end, your “[16digitsfolder]” will contain the “VHBL0123X” folder

TIP: You only need to do this once. Every next time you install a game, skip this step.

4) Move the “Install-[GameID].vpk” and the “[GameID] Folder” created by VPKShrink to the “vhbl” folder inside “VHBL0123X” 5) Update the QCMA database, once it finish move on to next step. NOTE: You have to do this each time you change the files in the QCMA folders or the console won’t be able to read them TIP: Right click the icon on the toolbar and select “Refresh Database”

6) On the console, open the “Content Maganer” and select “Copy Content” 7) Select “PC to PS Vita”, then select “Applications” 8) Move on to “Saved Data” section and select “PSP/OTher” 9) Select the “VHBL” folder you will find and transfer it all over. 10) When it finish, close the content manager and open VitaShell. 11) Search for “ux0:\pspemu\psp\savedata\VHBL0123X\vhbl” 12) Once there, install the “Install-[GameID].vpk” TIP: Once it is installed, you can delete it.

13) Move the “[GameID]” Folder to “ux0:\app” folder. TIP: To delete and to move files you need to open the VitaShell options with (TRIANGLE) Button.

14) Get out of VitaShell and check your new game bubble, launch it and test if it is working, as it should.

TIP: You can make a backup of the installed game with QCMA, so you don’t have to install it again. TIP: You can transfer ANY file this way with QCMA, like DLC and update VPKs. TIP: You SHOULD delete the leftovers files that were left in your “vhbl” folder on the PC. That way each time you transfer, you only transfer what you WANT to transfer and not the whole games all over again.

Return to Index

USB Drive Method: 1) Take your “[GameID].vpk” and drop it over VPKShrink, a window will open: -Change to Safe Mode? Y > This will make the vpk safe and you won’t risk briks when you install. -Change title id(s)? N > This will make the files keep the proper ID so you know what you’re installing. -Let it extract the files, once it is done a message will appear and any key will close the window.

NOTE: This process generates 2 files: an “Install-[GameID].vpk” and a “[GameID]” folder that contains the rest of the game.

2) Unmount your USB Drive and put in on the PC. TIP: You do this on VitaShell, you can alternate your USB Drive as “ux0”, “uma0” and unmount it.

3) Transfer “Install-[GameID].vpk” and “[GameID]” folder to “ux0:\app”. NOTE: In Windows you need to activate the “Show hidden files, folders and drivers” and uncheck the “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)” options in your Folder options. TIP: Your USB Drive shows you the “ux0” partition of your Vita.

4) Mount the USB Drive again and search for your files in VitaShell and install the “Install-[GameID].vpk” TIP: Once it is installed, you can delete it.

5) Move the “[GameID]” Folder to “ux0:\app” folder. Merge both folders. TIP: Use the (TRIANGLE) menu on VitaShell for this action.

6) Check the Installed Bubble. It should be working.

TIP: You can make a backup of the installed game with QCMA, so you don’t have to install it again. TIP: You can transfer ANY file this way with QCMA, like DLC and update VPKs. Return to Index

IX – Installing Games, updates and DLC III: Maidumps

You need: -A hacked console with latest VitaShell -A PC

–Maidumptool

-QCMA/USB Drive (only for PSTV)

Overview Unlike VPK files that are compressed on a special zip file format read by the console, maidumpfiles come already extracted inside the respective folders. Installing Maidump format games is by far much simpler and easier because Maidumptools doesn’t require any extraction or double the free memory for the games because it moves the files automatically to their correct location.

NOTE: While you use Maidumptools, remember that the (X) and the (CIRCLE) buttons are inverted.

1) Download and install the latest Maidumptool, launch it, wait until it starts then close it. -This will create the needed folders to use the tool.

2) Locate your “[GameID]” maidump format folder in your PC and make sure it is extracted (not a compressed file)

3) If your game comes with updates locate your “[GameID]_patch” folder in your PC and make sure it is extracted (not a compressed file). 4) If your game comes with DLC, locate the “[GameID]_addc” folder, make sure it is extracted (not a compressed file). 5) Transfer all your Mai folders to the console and put all your Mai folders on “ux0:\mai” NOTE: Create the folder if it doesn’t exist. TIP: Check part VII and VIII of this Guide for the different transfer methods between consoles.

6) Back on the console, open MaiDumpTools, select “Install game from folder” and select your “[GameID]” folder. -A warning will appear, just select (CIRCLE) again.

7) If your game comes with updates: select “Install patch from folder” and select your “[GameID]_patch” folder.

8) If your game comes with DLC: select “Install DLC from folder” and select your “[GameID]_addc” -Once it is done, select “Switch game loading”, select the game you installed. -Navigate to the option 5 “Load mode 0 + I0 hook” and select it.

-Wait until it finish a message saying “Setting up is completed” to exit Maidumptools.

X – Installing Games, updates and DLC IV: NoNpDrm

NoNpDrm is a new dumping method. It allows users to copy their decrypted games directly from their cartridges or digital purchases and created a fake license that can be shared to bypass the PSVita DRM protection.

Compared to Vitamin/Maidump, NoNpDrm are bugless versions. This means that: There’s no need to perform a workaround for savefiles in sleepmode, you can potentially get patches directly from the PSN, you won’t get errors related to missing files like sce_modules of any kind and more importantly, games that were unable to be dumped by Vitamin/Maidump can be dumped now (3.60 or lower firmware games only).

You need: -A hacked console with latest VitaShell -A PC

-QCMA/USB Drive (only for PSTV)

1) Download the latest release of the NoNpDrm Plugin. 2) Place it on the “ux0:tai/” folder in your console. TIP: Check part VII and VIII of this Guide for the different transfer methods between consoles.

3) On VitaShell browse to “ux0:tai/” and open the “config.txt” file with (X) 4) Navigate to the “*KERNEL” line and insert 1 new line below it -On the new line insert “ux0:tai/nonpdrm.skprx”

5) Restart your console with Vitashell

TIP: Step 1 to 5 only need to be performed the first time you install the plugin.

6) To install games, place your NoNpDrm dump on the “ux0:app” folder of your console. 7) To install DLC, place your NoNpDrm DLC on the “ux0:addcont/[GameID]/[DLCFolder]” directory and the needed licenses on the “ux0:license/addcont/[GameID]/[DLCFolder]” directory of your console. 8) To install updates, place your NoNpDrm updates on the “ux0:patch/[GameID]” folder of your console. 9) After you place all the desired files on the respective locations, go to VitaShell and open the (TRIANGLE) Menu on the Home Screen, select “Refresh Livearea” and wait for it to update the screen with your games. NOTE: For NoNpDrm games to save properly they must be mounted on a “ux0:” partition.

XI – Unlocking Clock Speed

This process will increase FPS for some games that run slow under normal circumstances.

You need: -A hacked console with latest VitaShell -A PC

-FileZilla/USB Drive (PSTV only)

1) Download the latest release of “oclockvitaminimal.suprx” from here 2) Transfer it to “ux0:tai/” on your console. TIP: Check part VII and VIII of this Guide for the different transfer methods between consoles.

3) On VitaShell browse to “ux0:tai/” and open the “config.txt” file with (X) 4) Navigate to the Bottom of the text file and insert 2 new lines -On the first new line insert “*ALL”

-On the second new line insert “ux0:tai/oclockvitaminimal.suprx”

5) Exit with (CIRCLE) and save the changes, then open the VitaShell Settings menu with (START) and Reboot.

NOTE: This will automatically set the CPU and GPU power to its max settings on games, offering the maximum performance, in exchange of a slighty higher battery usage. PSTV has no such a drawback, increasing the performance to even higher levels because it compensates for the extra CPU usage that comes with the upscaled resolution.

You need: -A hacked console with latest VitaShell

1) Change your console to showcase 12-Hours format in settings. 2) On VitaShell, locate this file “ux0:\user\00\savedata_backup\list.dat“, move it to somewhere else.

3) Create a new folder on “ux0:\user\00\savedata_backup” name it “list.dat”

XIII – Installing Adrenaline

This allows you to use your console as a functional PSP.

You need: -A hacked console -A PC -Wi-Fi

–Latest release of Adrenaline CFW

-FileZilla/QCMA/USB Drive (Only for PSTV users)

0) Uninstall any previous version of Adrenaline CFW if you had it on your console. TIP: You can do this using Easy Adrenaline Installer or by just deleting the “ux0:Adrenaline” folder in your console. 1) Download and Install latest version of “Adrenaline.vpk”. 2) Launch Adrenaline and follow the instructions on screen. -Press X to download the 661.PBP file.

3) After it installs, perform the Initial Setup of your ePSP CFW.

4) Close Adrenaline and open VitaShell. 5) Open the “ux0:tai/config.txt” file and under the *KERNEL line add “ux0:app/PSPEMUCFW/sce_module/adrenaline_kernel.skprx” -You can add a new empty line with VitaShell right under the *KERNEL line -This is to prevent having to launch Adrenaline twice to use it.

-Exit and save your changes when asked.

TIP: To return to the Live Area, tap the Home button twice. TIP: The folders related to Adrenaline are located on “ux0:pspemu/” by default and they work exactly as they did on a PSP. -To put PSP games on it, create the “ISO” folder inside “ux0:pspemu/” -To put PSX games on it, place the “[GameID]” folders with EBOOT.PBP files inside “ux0:pspemu/PSP/GAME” -For plugins, use the “seplugins” folder inside “ux0:pspemu”.

-With this method you can update a hacked Vita to a specially build version of 3.65 firmware. -The main appeal of this firmware update is to allow games designed to work up to 3.65 to be played. –If for some reason you delete the needed files for this to work, you’ll be stuck on a 3.65 that can’t play backups or homebrew again. -Once you have installed this firmware, you can factory reset your console or restore your database safely without risk of losing the hack.

–Once you have installed this firmware, you SHOULDN’T reinstall the 3.65 firmware or you’ll lose the hack.

–Be sure to have your console charged before attempting this. –This update is OPTIONAL and by attempting it, you’re responsible for anything wrong that happens in the middle of it.

What you need: -Updated VitaShell to latest version -An already hacked Vita

1) If you haven’t already, update your VitaShell to latest version. 2) Be sure to have a Vita Memory Card inserted in your console. 3) If you have Enso installed you need to uninstall it, if you don’t ignore this step. -Run the Enso installer (Install it if you deleted it), accept the terms and with the TRIANGLE option uninstall it. (If after the console reboots it asks for a firmware update CANCEL it.) 4) Run henkaku.xyz/go in your Vita to enable HENkaku on your console again. 5) Once HENkaku is enabled, open the Vita “Settings” and browse the “HENkaku Settings” and select “Unlink Memory Card”. After the text is shown, reboot the Vita on the “HENkaku Settings”.

6) Again, run henkaku.xyz/go but this time press R to reinstall the whole HENkaku from 0 (this will clean your config.txt files to disable all the plugins you have installed so far)

TIP: The correct timing is when the black screen with text shows up, press R and a pink colored text will be shown. This means you did reinstall HENkaku and restored the configuration files.

7) Reenable “Unsafe Homebrew” on the “HENkaku Settings” (Be sure it is checked). 8) If needed, reinstall the latest version of Vitashell with MolecularShell. 9) Download the latest version of “PSP2UPDAT.PUP” and “updater.vpk” from here. 10) Install the “updater.vpk”. This will create the “ux0:app/UPDATE365/” folder. Place the “PSP2IPDAT.PUP” file inside. 11) Restart your console and run henkaku.xyz/go for a last time but do not press anything. 12) Now, run the “3.65 HENkaku Enso Updater” app.(This is the name of the installed “updater.vpk”) 13) Follow the simple instructions on the screen then wait. Once it is done, it will reboot the console and the Team Molecule logo will be shown. 14) Reenable “Unsafe Homebrew”. 15) Update the following Plugins as needed (this guide expect you to know how to do this already): NOTE: You need to reboot the console each time you update/install any of the following files. -If you use SD2VITA, gamesd.skprx -To play newer games, NoNpDrm.skprx -To use the PSP mode, you need to reinstall Adrenaline.vpk -Any other plugin that you want to use, like oclockvitaminimal. (Be sure it works and is compatible with 3.65 first.)

16) You can now delete the “Enso” and the “3.65 HENkaku Enso Updater” app, as well as any other .vpk file you won’t install anymore and the “PSP2UPDATE.PUP” that remain on your console.

XV – Extra Comments

1) Do NOT convert Maidumps to VPK. While you CAN do it, you will break the compatibility of the game with plugins and further Mai enhancements, so don’t do it. 2) Save constantly. Even with the Part XII advice, it is encouraged to save often. We don’t know when a bug could popup. 3) Keep backups of your save files, there are homebrew for that. 4) Do NOT let the console run out of battery while you play. This might corrupt your savefiles and will make you lose game progress. 5) If possible, replace your older backups with NoNpDrm versions. They have no bugs and can be updated directly from the PSN.

Anything else that has not been covered here is extra and has no place here. Cheats and the likes aren’t essential and you will install and use them at your own risk. If your console explodes or breaks while you do anything that isn’t listed here, that is your fault.

The guide will only be updated when anything better than what has been posted here is released.

P.S.: There’s no functional PS Vita emulator, don’t ask for that.

Have fun!
