Sign Up To Brick Test Your Device Testing #HENkaku Ensō

BEFORE YOU READ ANY FURTHER, THIS BETA HAS A HUGE, HUGE, HUGE CHANCE OF BRICKING YOUR DEVICE, IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO TAKE THAT RISK, THEN READ NO FURTHER.

TEAM MOLECULE ALSO WANT YOUR CONSOLE ID, IF YOU DO NOT TRUST THEM, READ NO FURTHER!!!!

 

 

 

@Yifan Lu has posted a Tweet in which he requests help brick testing HENkaku Ensō, this is an understandable request as Team Molecule have only so many Vita's at their disposal, they are the ones risking their devices in order to give us HENkaku for free, it is only fair that we help in return, here is a quote from the source:

Fill this form to signup for the device bricking test. Earlier beta builds will have significantly more risk involved (the installation can and likely will result in bricks). The hope is that we can get people who are willing to sacrifice their Vitas for the common good and the real release will result in fewer bricks. We need many data-points in order to ensure a timely release, so thank you for your interest in the beta test.


In case it is not obvious, please do not lie just to try to get into the test early. I'm not exaggerating when I say that the installation is currently dangerous and most of the work needed to be done is to make it less dangerous. In order to do that, we need to observe how things can go wrong so that we can fix things before the release. Please note that you will receive no reimbursement for any damage done to your device when you consent to this voluntary test.

 

(I'm not kidding with this warning. We already have two bricked Vitas and it's just not cost effective for us to continue destroying our own Vitas--hence why we're asking for volunteers.)

 

SINCE SO MANY PEOPLE ARE BAD AT READING, KNOW THAT IF YOU ANSWER '10' ON THE RISK QUESTION AND 'YES' FOR >90% CHANCE BRICK, YOU WILL BE ONE OF THE FIRST ONES TO RECEIVE THE BUILD. THERE IS CURRENTLY A BUG THAT RANDOMLY BRICKS VITAS AFTER A COUPLE OF REBOOTS. WE HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS HAPPENS (WHICH IS WHY THIS FORM WAS CREATED) AND THERE IS NO RECOVERY (NOT EVEN WITH HARDWARE). JUST BE COMPLETELY CERTAIN THAT YOU ARE LITERALLY DONATING YOUR DEVICE TO US TO BREAK IN ORDER TO GATHER INFORMATION. ALSO MANY PEOPLE ARE LYING/MISTYPING IN THE CID QUESTION. JUST KNOW THAT WE USE THAT QUESTION AS A FILTER TO SEE IF YOU CAN ACTUALLY READ AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS.

 

 

 

 

If you are 100% sure that you do not mind your device being bricked, then click the link on the source tweet below:

 

 

I do notice some people have concerns in regards to Team Molecule asking for a CID, i am not sure why they are asking, but a wild guess is so that they can match your CID to the beta file they give you, because some people enjoy leaking beta's and other files they have been trusted with.

I have unlimited respect for team Molecule, but I really don't get that they're asking people to brick their PS Vita for a permanent hack.

 

I think HENkaku is perfectly fine now with the offline and online installers, and I see no benefits of a permanent hack that in order to be released requires a lot of 3.60 Vita's to die first.
