Enso EX
1 minute of silence for all the bricked Vitas
Note: This is only for the V3 of Enso_EX that people still manage to find and install nowadays.
Thanks to the hard work of SKGleba we got a powerful tool called Enso_EX. So powerful that it could cause serious issues for the user if: 1) they didn't read about what they installed (which is common) or 2) had some bad luck (which usually happens) This Enso variations brings a new SD2VITA plugin that is not loaded through the config.txt but by Enso itself so it would provide a faster boot time (now we have YAMT-Lite for that) and the support of custom boot animation. It also featured a update blocker (so powerful that it even prevent you to even reinstall the firmware) The SD2VITA option didn't work well with most of MicroSD and since it doesn't mount the MemoryCard and there was no option to disable it like a normal plugin, people had no storage mounted and couldn't do anything. And the only hope was to reinstall the firmware and if they applied the update blocker option they were cornered. I found the solution and made an FAQ but the rampage already started which leads to a big hatred from the community towards the software TL;DR: Do not use Enso Ex V3.
If you're an experienced user who want to use Enso_EX, pick the latest version which is safer and provides multiple options that are useful if you want to mess with the Vita.
If you're blocked with Enso_EX then do this: follow the firmware reinstall guide and during the process, after you have successfully sent the .PUP to the Vita and have the EULA agreement screen, disconnect you Vita from the PC and plug it into a power source. It will bypass the update blocker patch and reinstall the firmware.
After it's done, reinstall your hack and install regular Enso if you just want to enjoy your Vita.
