You will need the items below to install H-Encore2. The FinalHE will automatically install all the nesscary files for H-Encore2 on the Vita. Your PS Vita must be on at least firmware 3.65 and have a PSN account linked. If you never logged into your Vita before, just log into the PS Store ONCE. That's all it takes to link your account.

Memory Card if Fat Vita (1000's)

The official Sony Vita memory card, see if you can find a cheap one here. Those with a PS Vita Slim won't need a memory card.

Files Needed

Final h-encore: Github Link
Qcma: GitHub Link

Step 1: Unzip and Install all Files

QCMA Setup
  • Unzip the FinalHe file and run Qcma_steup-0.X.X.exe.
  • Select the libusbK driver when installing Qcma.

Step 2: Run QCMA

  • Qcma will appear in the system tray on the bottom right corner.
  • Right click on the Qcma icon and go to settings.

Step 3: Set up QCMA

  • In the settings, make sure to select the correct firmware on your Vita.
    • Select FW 0.00 (Always up-to-date) since you are on 3.70+.
  • Click OK.

Step 4: Run FinalHe.exe

  • Double click on the FinalHE.exe icon and click on the Start button.
  • Your firewall might block FinalHE from running, this is normal, just run it anyway.
  • Check Trim h-encore to ~7MB if you want to save some space.
  • Connect the PS Vita to your PC.

Step 5: Connect Vita to FinalHe

FinalHE Step 5
  • On the Vita, open Content Manager.
  • Click on Copy Content, and USB (If USB connection does not work, try the WiFi).
  • Go back to your PC and FinalHe, it should now say Connect to PS Vita.

Step 6: Start FinalHe.

FinalHE Step6
  • Click on the Let's GO! button.
  • Wait for FinalHe to finish.

Step 7: Copy H-Encore2 to PS VITA/APP.

FinalHe PT7
  • In the PS Vita, select Applications/PS Vita/ H-Encore2.
  • Select H-Encore2 and hit Copy (you won't have Vitashell as an option, this was from a previous hack I did).

Step 8: Go Back Out to the Home Page and Click on the H-Encore2 Bubble!

FinalHe PT 8
  • Go out to your HOME page.
  • Scroll down until you see the red bouncing H-Encore2 bubble.
  • Launch H-Encore2, scroll down to Install HENkaku press X.
  • Download VitaShell and press X (WiFi must be turned on).
  • Reset taiHen config.txt and press X, and then press X on Exit.



Step 9: Rejoice!

  • You have now installed Henkaku on your PSVita, but it will disappear if you reset or shut down your Vita.
    • If that happens, you just have to launch Hencore2 and install Henkaku again.

Continue to my next guide here to install the newest Moduro to downgrade your Vita to 3.60 or 3.65 so you can install ENSO, a permanent Henkaku.

  1. I can’t use the latest version 1.92 h-encore 2 with Mac. I tried using WINE (runs windows apps) but doesn’t work. Is there another way?

  2. PS vita WiFi fat 3.73. 8gb memorycard.
    THX for tutorial. A have c2-12828-1 error at vitashell start right after installing vitashell. Every time.
    What i tried:
    * reboot
    * h-encore-2 reinstall
    * vitashell reinstall
    * installing vitashell 1.9 from psvimgtools-frontend
    * database rebuild
    * Full console reset
    * card format

    Do you have any ideas? Thx!

    1. Wow, it seems like you did everything. So to recap, after you install H-encore2, you install Henkaku, then install Vitashell, reset the taiHen, and you still get the error? Does your Vita recognized your memory card?

      1. “and you still get the error?” Yes! I did this many times but still get error.
        Vita recognize card. I can install demo games (e.g. vipeout 2048), transfer videos to Vita (and watch it).
        I tried to install molecular shell but stil getting same error.

        After all i sold this vita. And asked buyer tell me if he can run vitashell. 🙂
