We’ll provide you with the full list of PS Vita 3.71 update patch notes and run you through everything the new firmware update brings with it.

PS Vita 3.71 Update Patch Notes | Trinity exploit fixed
As we stated above, it appears that the latest PlayStation Vita firmware update (version 3.71) brings with it a fix for the recent Trinity jailbreak exploit. According to VG247, this would mean that any homebrewed or emulated content you have downloaded on your Vita will likely no longer work.
The Trinity jailbreak was developed to work with the PS Vita firmware versions 3.69 and 3.70. It appears now, however, that it is simply incompatible with the 3.71 update. It seems that, according to this Reddit thread, that you won’t be able to connect to PSN without downloading the PS Vita 3.71 update. But yeah, it appears as though the main reason for this new firmware update for the PS Vita is to disable the Trinity jailbreak exploit thanks to new security systems at play in the console’s coding.
Alongside the new security measures brought in with the 3.71 update, the PS Vita’s latest firmware update will likely bring in some more system stability. Read on below for the full list of PS Vita 3.71 update patch notes.
