  1. Developer TheFlow has released H-Encore 2.0 for PlayStation Vita's with firmware 3.65, 3.67 and 3.68. This hack allows you to run HENkaku / taiHEN on consoles with a firmware higher than 3.60 (original HENkaku). Also possible: Are you already using H-Encore? You can use Modoru to downgrade the console to firmware 3.60 and install Ensõ (video guide here). What does H-Encore 2.0 bring? From now on you have the ability to automatically exit and bypass the bootstrap menu. You can force launching the bootstrap menu by holding R while starting H-Encore. In addition, you can personalize save data to get rid of the trophy warning. The spoofer has been changed to 3.70 and the kernel ROP chain uses less and better gadgets. What can I do after installing and / or executing H-Encore? You can personalize your Vita by using plugins You can play games for all firmwares (reF00D) You can use SD2Vita You can intall and run homebrew (duh) You can use Modoru to downgrade to a lower firmware version I have written some guides on ConsoleHax.com: https://www.consolehax.com/guides-psvita/ What do I need to hack my Vita / TV? A PC (Linux / Windows) A PS Vita / TV with firmware 3.65 , 3.67 or 3.68 An official Vita Memory Card when you have an OLED / 1K console. Vita Slim and Vita TV can make use of the internal memory. If there is a lower firmware such as 3.61 or 3.63 installed on your console, it goes without saying that you can NOT update the console the usual way. You can however make use of a DNS, see the following guide: https://www.consolehax.com/guides-psvita-365/ SOURCE: Twitter VIA: ConsoleHax.com
  2. Earlier this week Vita hacker and developer TheFlow released Modoru, a downgrade method for the PlayStation Vita (TV). The application that can only be run on consoles with HENkaku and / or H-Encore enabled allows you to go back to the out-of-the-box firmware of your console. So, if your console shipped with firmware 1.69, you can reinstall that firmware version. Afterwards you can easily update to firmware 3.60 by using the HENkaku DNS ( We can conclude that for now Modoru is mainly intended for users with a Vita on firmware 3.67 or 3.68 who can not use a permanent hack (Ensõ). Most Retail PlayStation Vita firmwares that can be used with Modoru can be downloaded from The ConsoleHax [Custom] Firmware Vault: https://www.consolehax.com/vault/index.php?resources/categories/retail-firmware.27/ This Video Tutorial is made by the one and only @Thibobo all credits go to him!

  3. I'm surprised you still haven't done that. Switch scene has so many goodies and interesting developments! Nice release btw.
  4. A Reddit user under the pseudonym AlphaFoxWarfare has shared a PlayStation 4 screenshot that shows us a screen which allows the user to change the Country/Region of the account. Sony has not yet issued an official statement about this feature, and it seems that it does not work yet. This could be Sony's first step toward preparing for the European ban on Geoblocking, a law that is applied since December 3rd that states customers within the European Union can not be refused because of their region by a webshop from within the EU. This could also mean that this feature will only be available to residents of the European Union. SOURCE: Reddit Via: PlayStationLifeStyle.net Dutch: ConsoleHax.com
  5. According to a recently published patent application from Sony Interactive Entertainment America LLC, the next generation of DualShock controllers may receive a touchscreen instead of a touchpad. Although the information in the document is not entirely clear with what the company plans to do with the screen. On behalf of Sony Ryuji Nakayama, Ennin Huang and Nathan Gary invented the patent that was submitted on September 29, 2017. The submission however does not mean that Sony will actually use it, technology companies often have their ideas patented to protect innovations. Personally I find that the current touchpad doesn't offer real advantages during gaming or navigation and I often forget the controller even has one. This also seems the case with most game developers who never really embraced the use of it during gaming. It would be kinda cool though to see an interactive map on your controller during gaming, so who knows what future gaming might bring. On the other hand it probably wouldn't be feasible, a controller with such a high end touchscreen would be immensely costly. The full patent can be read as a PDF here: http://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?PageNum=0&docid=10099121&IDKey=96543379056A Via: Hardware.info / ConsoleHax.com
  6. The Sega Mega Drive is a 16-bit console that was released in Japan in 1988. The console was then released in the United States under a different name: Sega Genesis because of patent rights. Europe even had to wait until 1990 for it's official release, despite it's popularity with fanatical gamers. The Mega Drive is the third console of Sega and the successor of the Master System. When the console hit the European market a wide range of games was already available, especially compared with regions where the console was already released. Yet it took Sega until early in year 1990 to search for a new mascot that had to compete with Nintendo's Mario. The search ended with Sonic, a blue (same accent as the Sega Logo) hedgehog. By bundling Sonic: The Hedgehog and the Mega Drive, the company achieved a successful market share increase. A few years later in 1993 a new version of the console was produced and it was named Mega Drive II. This smaller and lighter version came equipped with a compact motherboard that was more power efficient. The headphone jack vanished much like with today smartphones, although it wasn't replaced. Technical Sheet: Processor: Motorola 68000 - 16bit Processor with a clock speed of 7.6MHz Co-Processor : Zilog Z80 - 8bit Processor with a clock speed of 3.58MHz Graphic Processor: Sega 315-5313 ASIC (Yamaha YM7101) Sound: Texas Instruments SN76489 - Yamaha YM2612 Number of colors : 64 Resolution : 320 × 240 (progressive) or 320 × 480 (interlaced) Memory: 72kB RAM and 64kB Video RAM Media: Cartridges Ports: 2 ports for controllers - Expansion port - Composite video - RGB-Video output - headphones Dimensions: 278mm x 215mm x57mm Weight: 2.08 Kilogram Over the years a large number of emulators that can play Mega Drive (Genesis) I & II roms have been released for different platforms (PC, PSP, PS3, PS Vita, ...) Most of these are available as freeware. So find yourself a good one and give Streets of Rage or Sonic: The Hedgehog a chance. Source: ConsoleHax
  7. Who doesn't know the original Nintendo Wii controllers? But who did know that these controllers were originally designed for the Nintendo GameCube? A Twitter user named @spmrp has found these rare relics on a Japanese auction website. The code name for the 'Wiimote', Nunchuck and Sensor Bar for the GameCube was Nintendo Revolution. A name that was later used for the prototype Nintendo Wii. The package was sold for around 581 Euros. The hardware needs to be connected with the console like regular GameCube controllers, but the buyer has not yet found a way for them to work. Source: Nintendo Everything Via: ConsoleHax
  8. @Thibobo I have checked and I have a spare BD Drive (It should be working as the PS3 works fine except overheating). Let me know if changing the lens didn't help to arrange a meeting. Modelnumber: F151182926

    If that didn't help, and the controller works on another PS3 I don't know what can fix your problem.

    Pull the power cord out of your console. Then reset DualShock controller. Reconnect the power supply to your console and connect the controller via USB.
  11. Okay, the title might sound like a delayed April's Fool joke, but in reality this is a real and awesome hardware mod created by someone with the nickname Shank. Start to finish the project took him on a year and a half journey. In addition to the original Nintendo Wii the handheld makes use of two analog sticks ripped from a Nintendo 3DS, a 340x240 LCD screen, a fan and a battery. Don't expect playing sessions of a few hours though, the battery will last about fifteen minutes. Games are loaded via USB. SOURCE: BitBuilt.net VIA: ConsoleHax.com
  12. Nintendo has announced new wireless controllers for it's Switch. The controllers seem to have emerged from the eighties and are intended to play NES games on the hybrid console. The controllers are charged by connecting them to the Switch dock, but you can not use them as Joy-Cons. Presumably the controllers communicate via Bluetooth, which also means they are not wired. According to the big N the controllers are only available for customers with a paid Switch Online subscription. What this means, or how this will be determined is unclear. My best guess would be that the controllers can only be activated when using Nintendo's NES library. A set with two controllers will cost 59,99 Euro. Source: Twitter Via: ConsoleHax
  13. After installing the new Nintendo Switch system update on September 18, 2018 it will no longer be possible to unlink your Nintendo Account from a Nintendo Switch user. Also make sure your existing Nintendo Account is linked to the correct user. If you use Custom Firmware or hacks on your hybrid it's probably a good idea to unlink your Nintendo Account right now.
