|Subject: Mandatory PSVita Firmware Update Pisses Developers Off Tue Dec 27, 2011 7:25 pm|| |
Sony is no stranger to dictatorship over consumer rights; and the latest instalment of its questionable security measures for the PlayStation Vita. It’s only natural for companies to protect the system from hackers and that isn’t frowned upon by hackers, in-fact; most developers understand or at least expect this. The problem is more the fact that you can’t transfer any files to your Vita unless this update is complete (this includes any media). Here’s how the update works:
- Quote :
- - Connect your Vita to PC via the cable.
- Content Manager checks if the PC is connected to the internet.
- If yes, the Vita connects to your PC and updates to the new firmware.
- If not, the Vita does not connect to the PC.
In recent development, we’ve discovered that HBL runs on firmware 1.50 but was then blocked in this new 1.51 update; so if you get your system and connect it to your PC your dreams of having said Homebrew Loader are completely shattered.
