SKFU releases ★ Package Installer Unlock on the retail PS Vita!
If we look back at the various Gamescom videos I’ve uploaded, we could see that there is a special Application installed at the developer PS Vitas:
The Package Installer.
The App actually exists within the retail (that is your normal everyday PS Vita) PS Vita, but it is hidden.
If we use the following method, we are able to actually access and use the Package Installer application ourselves!
At first, how the heck can we access this hidden app?
Well, simply follow this easy video and you should be able to use the Package Installer at your own PS Vita.
Next open the Email Application on your PS Vita, set up your email that you’ve used in the step from above, if you did not do this yet.
Open the new email you should’ve gotten and press the start button on the picture inside of the email.
If by black magic, the Package Installer application should open and you will be able to use it… Kind of…
The Package Installer has basically 2 ways to transfer content: Via host0:/ and via the CMA. Problem: The retail PS Vitas do not have a host0:/ and the normal CMA can not transfer packages.
How to solve this? Well, simply use the QCMA, made by codestation, which is capable of transfering your already saved content and additionally has a PS Vita firmware update function and a function for transfering packages, if you have access to the Package Installer.
Does this mean free PSP/PS1/PS Vita games?
Wow! Stop right there! It is not as easy as you think.
The Package Installer is only capable of installing DRM-free content, which basically means you can not install any kind of content, that requires you to pay for it, e.g. full PSP/PS1/PS Vita games.
Any kind of demo applications, regardless of the PSN Store region (!), can be installed… As long as it is a PS Vita demo.
Pure applications like NicoNico, Netflix and the eBook Reader can also be installed, since those do not require you to have a license for them.
PSP demos can, unfortunally, not be installed via this way, otherwise a free PSP demo exploit could be, potentionally, possible. Aww, bummer!
Some might think that this is useless, some others might think that this is great, since demos like Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f 2nd can now be played at any kind of PS Vita, regardless if they have access to the japanese PSN Store or not.
In the end you have to know yourself if you are going to use this or not.
I would like to thank SKFU for his work and dedication to the PS Vita, even if he hides a lot of things from the public, the things he releases are always a stunning surprise!
