    Hey guys. I'm new to ps vita homebrews and I'd like to jailbreak mine (a 3.68 fat vita) with the last release of h-encore. But before I do that I have some questions to ask:
    1- Does the vita brick easily?
    2- Can I still play my physical and digital games?
    3- Can I run any region backups?
    4- Are custom themes easy to install?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Not unless you do something really stupid. If you follow the guide you'll be fine.
    2. Yes, however you might want to only use digital games as SD2Vita, which allows you to use a microSD card instead of a memory card, uses the gamecard slot.
    3. Yes, the Vita is region free.
    4. Not sure, I never tried

    So once the vita2sd is mounted. You can't take it out to play physical games?

    Technically you could but then you will have saved data and stuff spread between internal/vita card memory and the sd2vita memory.

    no, you just dump your games to the SD card and use NoNpDRM to get their fake licenses so they'll run.
