I started seeing lag on all my Vita games and graphics drop so I want to check if it is a software problem, I reseted and rebulided database but it didn't change that much, Have you encountered this problem before? The fps is low even on the IOS not drastically low but enough to make you want to punch something, I cant engoy my games. I want to check if it is hardware or software, how do I downgrade my software?

Its not the sort of thing sony would willingly provide a way to do, since it would aid pirates more than anybody.

Never heard of this problem, what games are you playing? Some games have FPS drops.

My whole Vita has this low but nonstop lag, it feels like the processor is performing a little less than expected, even if I turn off wifi and go in airplane mode it continues I think it happened because my Vita stayed in a pretty cold place for 2 months I wonder if I charge the battery at full it will work again I don't have the money to buy a new one plus I don't like the new 2000 model. I will have to get used to it. Plus the OS lags somethimes and when I scroll to unlock the screen it shows that there is a little framerate problem like the processor is trying to run at max but sth is preventing it from doing so with a little. Has anyone confronted this problem before?

TC, you can't legitimately downgrade your firmware...

Also, if you do soft mod your vita.
You'll just live in constant fear that, every update will have the potential to kill your current firmware, & therefore you would have to wait for the author to update his exploit.

Plus soft modding your vita is against Sony's TOS & it's punishable by a IP/Console ban/Account gets banned or even terminated (that is if your MAC address gets leaked or someone squeals on you).

And you can get modded here just talking about it.
