How to: Re-enable PSTV Whitelist on 3.60 PS Vita, with HENkaku
Note from Wololo: The PSTV Whitelist is a trick on the PS TV that lets you play more Vita games than the device normally lets you. The PS TV has a whitelist of games and will refuse to start a given Vita game if it’s not in the compatibility list. This prevents you from playing Vita games that would normally play just fine on the PS TV. This trick solves that, by making ALL Vita games compatible on the PS TV.
As a reminder, you’re messing with some critical files of your PS Vita here, although the Whitelist cleans up after a reboot, meaning there’s no big danger of an irreversible issue, proceed at your own risk.
Update: There is now a HENkaku app to do all of this for you at no effort, courtesy of Kankertje. Download Vita TV Whitelister, install it through HENkaku, run it, and you’re done.
The tutorial is left below for reference, but again, you can now use the app instead! This tutorial on How to Re-enable PSTV Whitelist on 3.60 PS Vita was initially published by /Talk member Pixelbutts. You can find the original post here.
So with the release of HENkaku, many of us are excited, especially myself since PSTV has support for this.
The procedure is quite simple.
What you will need
- HENkaku (https://henkaku.me)
- A PSTV
- The whitelist file (https://www.dropbox.com/s/d6gef9cx07n7kx6/list_launch_vita.dat?dl=0)
How to whitelist all Vita Games on your 3.60 PS TV
1) Install HENkaku, the method is quite simple but in case you need a visual method you can view the video below: (Dont let the errors worry you. They will be fixed soon enough.)
2) Open the newly made Molecular Shell bubble and start an FTP session (hit select)
3) Take the “list_launch_vita.dat” and place it on the desktop (easy access)
4) Open FileZilla and connect to the PSTV (the IP to connect to and the port are displayed on the screen)
5) Navigate to “ur0:game\launch\” in filezilla
6) Drag and drop the “list_launch_vita.dat” over to the PSTV and overwrite it (feel free to back up the “list_launch_vita.dat” currently on the system and put it somewhere safe if you feel the need to)
7) Close the FTP session on the PSTV (circle – or X depending on where you are)
8) Insert your game card of choice that is not PSTV compatible without the whitelist
9) Play the game
