    Is there a bypass in order to not update when running netflix on the pstv or even with crunchyroll? Am getting bs about updating and i know there is a way on a ps3 cfw to bypass the bs of having to sign in on sony in order for them to monitor what you think what you watch and how you live your life i believe it was called NOPSN.

    Stupid question but will this work with downloaded games and will I risk getting my PSN banned?

  3. Robbyvon86 says:

    Netflix is now unlocked on my Vita TV.

    Is Assassin’s creed 3 liberation compatible with this hack?

  5. Polite Timesplitter says:

    I got a PSTV after hearing about this hack to play some Vita games – an idiot question though, can I still safely get digital games downloaded? If an update comes out that breaks the hack, how can I get PSN games onto my vita TV without taking it online – or am I stuck with physical games?

  6. Ridley says:

    I’ve tried turning off the Vita TV using the Home button on my DS4 and selecting “Power Off”. For some reason the hack still works and I’m still able to run Uncharted (Physical copy) without restarting the email steps.

  7. Samwise says:

    Funny thing has happened with my PSTV (EU version, VTE-1016), the hack has worked fine, perfect even, heck, better than expected.

    I noticed in the notes that after a reboot the hack should disappear, well no matter how much I reboot mine and switch between Vita Memory Cards (An 8GB and a 16GB using the same EU PSN Account if that’s any use) the hack just doesn’t seem to go, games that shouldn’t run still do. Not that I’m complaining at all! But it seems like something to mention considering the predicted behaviour is for it to reset the database after it powers down.

  8. Ridley says:

    Uncharted and MGS Collection HD works even after powering off my vita. Both were physical copies.

  9. Andrew says:

    My god MY GAMES WORK!!!!! Holy *** Netflix is working too!!! Thank you guys so much I love my vita TV now

  10. S3542U says:

    Tested the Easy way guide on my PSTV and so far it works fine.

  11. Uberfry says:

    Well its deasd, the new update killed it

    At time of writing 10/2/2015 I can still watch netflix on 3.51 PSTV. As long as I don’t turn off the system and don’t exit the netflix screen and always put it in stand-by I can continue to watch netflix. It’s a little slow at times but works just fine I’m very happy with this hack so far.

    Now dumping games and game backup installing that’s what I want see even if there isn’t that many games on PSvita that are worth playing but being hacked like my PSP and PS3 is a god send.

    Why can’t you just use charles proxy to redirect the list_launch_vita.dat?

  14. This is the perfect blog for anybody who hopes to understand this topic.
    You realize a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that’s been discussed for many years.
    Great stuff, just great!

  15. edgar says:

    is this hack still working?

  16. Benni says:

    This Hack works for me on PS Vita TV FW 3.30.
    Can the Vita be updated after “hacking”?

  17. Thanks for your personal marvelous posting!

  19. Hi I am so grateful I found your website,
    I really found you by mistake, while I was researching on Google for something else, Anyhow I
    am here now and would just like to say thank you for a tremendous post and a
    all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design),
    I don’t have time to go through it all at the moment
    but I have saved it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more,
    Please do keep up the awesome jo.

    Thanks a lot the easy method work for me.
    I noticed that the hack will not erase if you block internet connection in pstv setting after read the three mails. I can stanby and shutdown the pstv hack is still there 😉

  21. Eric says:

    I tried the v2 version of this hack found on hackinformer, and it went smooth up until I restarted my pstv. the database rebuilt itself and killzone, or uncharted were unable to run. Luckily I was able to default back to v1 whitelist, and they run again, but I’m wondering where I went wrong on the v2 hack? I did everything it specified to every note on the site and it’s guide.

    Any ideas on what made the pstv rebuild the database when I completed the last step and restarted the system?

  23. DKT05 says:

    Can somebody tell me why the motion detection can’t work on pstv while the dualshock 4 have one? Is a fix is in development for that?
    Thank you.

  24. runsrr says:

    I did everything right but when I login to my gmail account on the ps tv and I select the email that say activate PSTV Writer then I select the picture icon than I press the PS button to go home and I close the Emil app but once I select the email app I am automatically login in.
    Is that the reason why its not working for me?

  25. Alessandro says:

    There’s a way to hack pstv without using Vita? (which i don’t have)

  26. CrimsonRaven25 says:

    i was wondering, if i buy a pstv, will this hack work as long as i have firmware versions under 3.52, and will i beable to do hacks????? like the psp emultor hack?

  27. danny says:

    im on 3.57 not working plz help how do i downgrade

  28. Th0rtheg0d says:

    Any hope on an updated while list hack for 3.60? I updated mine before I found this post…

  29. zusshark says:

    So if i unplug or turn off my ps tv for any reason the whitelist hack will disappear?
    So i must always leave it turned ON forever ?

  30. Dan says:

    Can I go online with this hack, or will it cause my account to get deleted in any way? I don’t wanna lose all my trophies 🙁

    • piotrekhenry says:

      It’s not a hack for a current firmware so you wont be able to go online anyway.

  31. Branislav says:

    I just bought Playstation TV for playing Wipeout. It was $19.99 in walmart…
    Came home. Did the hack and it worked perfectly. Played one game and then updated PSTV to the latest – 3.60 in order to download previously purchased Metal Gear bundle. End now, it won’t work any more! Wipeout and all… :'(
    Please help.

    • piotrekhenry says:

      No help available. The hack only works on 3.52 and lower firmware. By updating you forfeit the use of this at least until a new exploit is found that would allow the use of this on a more recent firmware.

  32. Franciskbadk says:

    Please, can you say when a new exploit is available to 3.60? Im very interested in it. I bought pstv and i didnt know this. Thanks.

  33. Some really quality posts on this site, saved to fav.
