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 3.65.

Files Needed

Enso for 3.65: GitHub Link 

Step 1: Install H-encore.

  • See my guide here to install H-encore.
  • Make sure you downloaded and install Vitashell.
  • Do not reboot or shut down your Vita, otherwise you will have to launch H-encore again.

Step 2: Download and Transfer Enso.

  • Download Enso for 3.65 and Launch Vitashell.
  • Press Select to bring up the FTP server information.
  • Transfer the ENSO.vpk through FTP to any folder in ux0 (I usually create a VPK folder).

Step 3: Install ENSO.

  • Install Enso in the folder it was transferred to.
  • Press to confirm installation.
  • 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, scroll down, and launch Enso.
  • Press to accept the terms and conditions.
  • Press 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.
  • In Settings/System Information you should see two Chinese Characters next to your firmware number.

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.

  1. I followed your tutorials and have successfully downgraded my Vita slim to 3.65 and installed enso. I can see the enso logo now when I start my vita.

    But….when I try to connect to the PS store I get error “Could not connect to server. (NW-8942-3)”

    I have PSN and Version spoofing enabled, I’ve tried versions 3.70, 3.72 and 3.73, but no difference.

    My Wi-Fi connection seems OK, as I can access web pages from the browser app, it’s just the store which I’m having issues with.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

      1. Hi,

        I came to the same conclusion after doing a search for the issue on Google.

        To try and fix the issue I found the tutorial below and installed the iTLS-Enso, but unfortunately I still can’t access the PS Store.


        I’m logged into the PS Network OK in my Vita Settings, it’s just the Store app which doesn’t work.

        It’s not a major issue, as I’ve since installed PKGJ. It’s just annoying when something doesn’t work 🙁



  2. i have ps vita phat running on 3.65 enso with 8gb sony mmc and i want to upgrade to 32gb using sd2vita and Autoplugin ,is there any tutorial for this? i look up on youtube vids but i cant find any related enso hack,every tutorial is using hencore.

  3. I followed all your tutorial, starting from downgrading 3.73 to this one (3.65). I must say, you sir did a good job in guiding us! Thanks so much!

  4. in enso mine tells me that the check of os0 failed and then asks me if i want to download 3.60 or exit the app. when i downloaded it on my other PSP it got about half way and the screen went black and wouldnt come on after about 30 minutes i reset the psp to factory

  5. So I messed up my but shell and I already henkaku hack and downgraded to 3.65. I ended up doing a system restore and memory card format. Is it safe or possible to redo the process from the beginning?
