            sir could you help. I have been running around the webs and have seen your name mentioned a few times and you seem highly knowledgable on the subject. Whenever i activate the mltactivator everything goes accordingly vita restarts i go onto the trophy app etc but when i check if i am activated it says i am not? And i think this is whats not allowing me to install the epsp bubble easy installer as i am getting an error code of c-1283 something. Do i already have to have been activated before on the vita? this particular article seems to state otherwise if so. I would be really appreciative if you could give me any help on the subject thanks Tech Tomas!

          you should do the full reset and wipe. PSbutton+R+powerbutton. Select reinstall system or whatever the name is.
          after that, setup the psvita and use an account of PSN when it asks.
          Then do the following:
          1) Install HENkaku
          2) Install Enso
          3a) if you have PS4 and want PS4 link to work:
          -Go to settings and enable in HENkaku settings the SPOOFING options
          -Login to PSN
          -Open PS3 link and PS4 link apps and connect consoles to PSvita.
          -Once you have established a connection you can quit the apps.
          3b) Install MLTactivator ( After the installation do not login to your account, EVER)
          3c) Open Trophy app or games installed via Mai or Vitamin won’t boot and give an error.
          4) Install adrenaline EASY installer
          5) open Adrenaline EASY installer and let it install the PSP game for you
          6) after it reboots, open again adrenaline installer and install adrenaline on the PSP game
          7) after reboot try booting adrenaline
          Should work
          8) install MAIdumpTool

          With these steps you get access to:
          – PS4/PS3 link
          – Adrenaline (ePSP)
          – PSvita games

          If that all doesn’t help you either do something wrong or your vita is a special one with problems.

          Good luck

      Try my instruction bellow. Yesterday I successfully activated my own console. Formatting memory card is not enough, you should restore system.

  5. Xtremegamer says:

    Ok, so i have a PS vita on FW 1.80 still for perfect PS1 emulation+audio.

    Is it worth going to 3.60 , what benefits would i get ?

  6. Frank says:

    Can you reconnect to your PSN after? That do not seem to work here, I want to reinstall Adrenaline and the icon won’t show up.

    Epsp bubble installer works after installing MLTActivator, but After installing adrenaline 5.1 the adrenaline boot screen shows then the c0-9225-1 error. anyone else have any luck getting Adrenaline working? maybe lower verions?

  10. lollypop says:

    thank u wololo for Download MLTActivator and the devs
    but i just want to say i dont give a rats nest wheter its activated
    becuz it was activated and now it isnt …
    sony their lose if they dont want enable my download after the socalled buy
    .. no more buy
    anyway i wanted to ask something else

    dear wololo,
    could u please add a bootup script to vmlinux.bin.gz
    so that i could alter my xmbwave and my pspboot and theme
    from the uclinux
    but more importantly
    could u add something like evolutionx for xbox but to psp
    simply replace vshmain.prx or vshmenu.prx after a rename in flash0
    to replace it with a themable graphics.c evolution text mode psp launcher menu
    guess what im asking is uclinux with autoboot scripts to alter flash
    like swissarmyknife hdd unlock live
    and a evolutionx or evolutionpsp menu that sits in ur flash as vshmain.prx replacement
    becuz i really want my psp to look like my xbox and sit there now (allso psvita lol)
    and trainers and the works from a ini loaded evolution
    thanks to wololo

  13. Senas8 says:

    It failed multiple times .. on Vita TV but after trying it over and over.. it finally worked and adrenaline works perfect.

  14. Aaron says:

    DOES NOT WORK. I reformatted my system and memory 5x, trying it different ways each time, and wasted 90 minutes of my life. Is there a tutorial somewhere?

    • Jack says:

      Try my instruction bellow. Yesterday I successfully activated my own console. Formatting memory card is not enough, you should restore system.

  15. Albert C says:

    Meh, I think Ill wait for The FloW’s updated offline Adrenaline.

  16. Stacey says:

    We need a new way to activate the vita under are own psn adrenaline is a good option to play psp/ps1 games but still doesn’t solve our issues of not being able to play online would like to see a new spoofing method that works

  17. Jack says:

    It actually works. But you should do exactly as Joonie86 wrote.
    1. Uninstall enso. Vita may ask you to format your card, don’t do it now.
    2. Restore system. Settings -> Format -> Restore this system. Formatting memory card is not enough. Vita ask you to deactivate account but you should not care about deactivation, right?
    3. During first launch select “I have PSN account” and “Login later”.
    4. Install Henkaku.
    5. Install enso.
    6. Install MLActivator and run it. After system reboot open trophy app, just as MLActivator asks you.
    7. Install ePSP Bundle installer and Adrenaline EasyInstaller, create bubble and install adrenaline into it.
    8. Complete adrenaline installation during it’s first launch.

    Special note. I think, you don’t have to worry about your account ban or something. After installation you’ll see empty account name without email in playstation network settings. And you will install MLActivator after full system restoration. So what can they steal?

    • LAP87 says:

      if sony can’t sniff out your previous account/activation-info from the unit, then the second best thing they can do is blacklist your vita.. effectively banning your particular unit from ever using it with PSN ever again.
      This is just my suspicion though, haven’t heard of anyone getting their vita banned as of yet.

    • Jay says:

      It worked, I follow steps above exactly what you list.

      thank you Jack, you r my life saver.

    • HermitDash says:

      Followed this, worked as intended. It did take a couple trys for MLActivator to take but happy it activated in the end!

    • snailshell says:

      I tried this method and it didn’t work until I got one trophy for my “account”. So maybe you need to have a trophy of any game before it works

    • Dude1 says:

      You probably wouldn’t want it, but i could kiss you on the mouth right now. Worked for me!

  18. Jack says:

    Oh. I forget to mention it. But you should format memory card during step 2, so you don’t have to worry about it on step 1. And sometimes vita don’t ask you to format card on step 1.

  19. Shiggitay says:

    I knew someone would make a workaround, but I’ll wait for the official Arenaline new release Flow/TN is gonna release in September.

  20. ms_vixen says:

    I say go for the this method if you have a pstv or psvita that happens to have no account or your act.dat doesn’t let you play your ps1 or psp games due to sonys bs. And you just have the ofw on 3.60. Its safe and when our buddy decides to release the spoof fix or something in september we should just simply do the same steps of restoring from safe mode and skip the current install of the MLTactivator.

  21. makak1984 says:

    Hmm to complicated and not know if it is ban safe… I think I will stay and wait for Flow turn 🙂

  22. Ms_vixen says:

    Everyone go for the current method! I recommend it only if you have a pstv or psvita that you just got and is on 3.60. Also if sonys selfish *** did something to your act.dat and registry files that for some reason you can’t use your purchased content! When September comes along and if a spoofer fix is followed or something then just follow the same current steps but don’t install the mltactivator simple as that!

  23. KurokiPyon . says:

    Can I use PS3 remote play after this offline activation?
    Thank You.

  24. lollypop says:

    solution is to hit first install via restore system
    then activate with psvitaupdateblocker like u did

  25. BroDEN says:

    after i install and run, my trophies are empty, when i wanna launch a game, it says ” You cannot earn trophies in this apps. Do you still …blablabla” and when i connected to laptop via usb, a pop-up by my qcma written “connected to (PS Vita)” which is not right, am I right?
    Usually qcma pop-up will show like “connected to Broden (PS Vita) “. Is this a part of the risk?

  26. lollypop says:

    use the qcma packages installer
    but what i really want most

    PS4 PS3 PSVITA PSP ODE COBRA TIMEMACHINE 32TB Service server + cfw and ofw preloader

  27. jj says:

    So I installed MLTActivator and it seems to have activated my vita that is running Enso/Henkaku that was not previously activated with a 128gb SD2VITA card as the main memory.

    The good news is that most things still seem to be working although I lost some of my game data.

    Unfortunately, I can’t get Adrenaline to install.

    It will go through the install process, and when I press X to reboot, I don’t get a new icon with Adrenaline. I’ve tried uninstalling/reinstalling same thing.

    Then i installed ePSP Bubble Installer thinking it may be the lack of a PSP game running.

    So then the install went a lot quicker (For example, it didn’t install the firmware) but it did install the Adrenaline icon.

    Unfortunately when I ran it, it displays the miniS logo, then it goes into a black screen and gives an error C1-2858-3.

    I manually copied over the 661.PBP into the Adrenaline folder, and no change.

    If I press the PS button before it gives the error message, I do see the Adrenaline config.

    HELP!!!

  28. Gary says:

    I just did the new offline activation but can’t get Adrenaline to work on SD2VITA

    I did a complete wipe and reinstall and found that the issue seems to be related to Adrenaline on SD2VITA

    Here is what I did

    1. Uninstall enso. Vita may ask you to format your card, don’t do it now.
    2. Restore system. ENTER SAFE MODE Restore this system.
    3. During first launch select “I have PSN account” and “Login later”
    4. Format memory cards (internal and external)
    5. Install Henkaku.
    6. Install enso.
    7. Install MLActivator and run it. After system reboot open trophy app, just as MLActivator asks you.
    8. Install ePSP Bundle installer and Adrenaline EasyInstaller, create bubble and install adrenaline into it.
    9. Complete adrenaline installation during it’s first launch.

    Here it ran fine, so then I tried to enable SD2VITA

    10. Copy external memory card to SD2VITA
    11. Enable SD2VITA as main memory
    Here is where it stopped and gave a black screen with error C1-2858-3.

    I switched back the config by commenting out the loading of gamesd.skprx and rebooted to run off the vita external memory, and adrenaline would not run and gave me the same error as before.

    Anyone have a solution?

  29. Oliver Kennedy says:
