HENkaku Ensō is, without a doubt, installed on most hacked FW 3.60/5 as it gives a full untether. Due to what it achieves, it modifies system files and as a result, a simple bug can potentially brick your system. Thankfully, version 1.1 has been released to address the only such bug that the installer had!
A few hours ago, Yifan Lu released version 1.1 of HENkaku Ensō which brought about the following:
- A fix to the bricking bug which happened if you tried to uninstall HENkaku after removing it by reinstalling a firmware PUP file.
- It must be noted that the problem was in the installer itself as the payload wasn’t changed.
- HENkaku Ensō 1.1 only updates the installer so DO NOT reinstall the payload!
- As a result, you won’t notice anything different when installing the updated installer and you should not reinstall HENkaku Ensō through it if it’s already installed!
In more detail, the bricking bug is triggered when you re/install a 3.60/3.65 PUP file without uninstalling Ensō beforehand. Then, if you proceed to uninstall Ensō via the installer, your system is bricked forever. This bug happens because when you install a PUP file, HENkaku Ensō is automatically removed but the installer doesn’t detect this. Due to this, the uninstaller tries to remove Ensō again and restores an old MBR backup that kills the Vita!
