PSVITA Firmware 3.10 out today, will probably block TN-V

March 25, 2014

A new vita firmware update will be hitting the PSVita later today.

It has been quite some time since we’ve seen a new firmware update for the Vita. The last firmware update (3.01) was in December of last year. Sony just announced that a new one will be rolling out later today.

Within that time frame we’ve released a few exploits with the capability of running Total_Noob’s popular TN-V CEF. It seems as though Sony was holding the firmware update that should have already been released to patch the exploits, so that they could actually add some real content to the update. Wouldn’t want too many “fixes stability” updates in row, now would we?

Some of the new features and changes in PS Vita’s 3.10 system update below:

  • You can now display up to 500 applications on the home screen.

  • A Calendar application has been added for PS Vita, allowing you to set up gaming events with your friends. Sync your Google calendar to have all your events with you on your PS Vita. You can also share your favorite events by using the Messages and Email applications.

  • A new “Manage Content on Memory Card” option has been added to the Content Manager application. You can now view the data on your memory card, making it easier than ever to manage content on your PS Vita. You can now view memory usage by content type, and delete content and applications.

  • Music – You will now be able to search for content saved on a connected device such as a PC. Music – You will now be able to search for content saved on a connected device such as a PC.

  • Video – You’ll be able to now sort content by size.

  • Photo – Rotate Screen Automatically has been added to Photos to control tilt sensor for rotation of images. Freeform has been added to the Panoramic mode selection list.

  • Settings – Adjust Daylight Saving Automatically has been added. 30 minutes has been added in Enter Standby Mode Automatically

  • You can now send and receive voice messages using the Messages application on PS Vita. Exchange voice messages with your friends and players on PS4 and PS Vita.

To add to that list it will undoubtedly block TN-V and its respective exploits. If you update you will not be able to get TN-V for a very long time and you will no longer have access to your exploit. Staying on 3.01 is the best recommendation. You can always wait until an exploit is back on PSN and use a PS3 and OCMA to copy the game over.

If you decide to stay on 3.01 make sure to download what you need from PSN because you will not have access to it unless you update!

We’ll update you as soon as the firmware goes live and any changes it brings, expected or unexpected.
