Developer ‘CelesteBlue’ has created a homebrew that installs an ePSP bubble on your PSVita easily and WITHOUT a PSP game so you can install ARK/Adrenaline on it. This, of course, saves you the hassle of having to borrow a PS3 or do the risky IDU mode method if you have a PSP. It’s important to mention that your Vita must be ACTIVATED prior to using ePSP bubble installer.
What’s this homebrew?
Pretty simple actually. It’s a homebrew with which you can install an ePSP bubble and then you just install ARK/Adrenaline normally! For those that don’t know, ARK/Adrenaline are hacks for the PSVita that allow you to play all PSP games and homebrew. They were developed by “qwikrazor87” and “TheFlow” respectively. ARK can run on your Vita without installing taiHEN after a reboot and works on 3.61/3 if you got it on there. You can use it to save space too as it only takes up about 4MB while some PSP games/demos take 100s of MBs.
ePSP bubble installer
What do you need to do this:
A taiHEN enabled PSVita on 3.60 (duh)
The VPK installed on your Vita (it’s unsafe of course)
20MB free space on your PSVita
An activated PSVita
It’s pretty straightforward as you can see but you still NEED an ACTIVATED PSVita as of now.
Download Link and what to expect next:
The download is off GekiHEN’s website by pressing the VPK file download button. Make sure you get it from GekiHEN’s link as unsafe homebrew might be malware from the wrong hands. The developer of ePSP bubble creator has in the readme hinted that he may release a tool soon to let you attach your Vita to a PSN account and maybe activate it.
The best to thank the dev, as per the readme, is by contributing to the Vita community so do just that 🙂 Stay tuned!
