FIRMWARE UPDATE 3.55 KILLS THIS. DO NOT UPDATE.


Through the power of homebrew. Just takes a simple email, read via the PSV email app of which is preinstalled on each device.

http://hackinformer.com/2015/09/24/m...itelist-patch/

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Download this file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ms6kx2b3xj...riter.eml?dl=0

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Open that file with a compatible email client (such as thunderbird), and forward it to your email account registered on the vita's email app.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Load the vita email app. Locate your email and load it. You should see something like this:



Click on the attached image. You will now get this:



DO NOT CLICK OK. Instead, press the PS button and quit the app.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Go back into the vita email app. The settings have now been cleared, so log back into your email. The client is now hacked.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. Download https://www.dropbox.com/s/d6gef9cx07..._vita.dat?dl=0 and rename it to #0 - make sure there is NO file extension. Enable file extension editing in windows if you havent done so already.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. Email it to your vita's registered email address with the title of ur0:game/launch/list_launch_vita.dat

And also email again with the title of ur0:game/launch/list_launch_emu.dat to unblock all PSP/PS1 games.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. open it like before. quit the app.



success

But what about games with touch functionality required? Not an issue - PSTV has touchscreen emulation:

1. Hold down the PS button and you get the standby menu. Turn this option to ON:



2. These are the controls. If you are using a DS4, you can use the touchpad!



3. touch some shit

How... would you do that? How do you get a PS1 game on there that isn't from PSN? I want to play Ridge Racer 60fps edition on my PSTV! :)

The Vita version requires front and rear touch to be played properly.

More like Ģ40, but I guess I could. I'm not that excited to play a handful of extra games on the TV, especially ones which clearly can't be played properly without touch, but having the EU version of Danganronpa working would be nice.

you'd have to make a bubble of it. I suppose that bridge hasn't been crossed yet though but surely that's coming

Too bad a few puzzles in Uncharted are impossible to solve on the PSTV because of the use of the camera.

Seriously. Blame Sony. From all the developers and publishers I've spoken to about why not letting their Vita games run on PlayStation TV I was always told it was Sony's call.

They'll bother. In fact the next update is almost guaranteed to kill off anything that this hack allows, which is a lot.

Yes. Piracy will probably mean less games for Vita so he has a point.
