Adrenaline-6 released – Base game/activation no longer needed!


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    Is anyone else having issues getting Categories Lite to work after this update? Anytime I try to access a category, pspemu freezes and then after about 20 seconds, c1-2858-3 comes up.

    If I want to play a game from a psn save from my ps3 on my vita, is it just as easy as getting thr save off my cfw ps3 and transfer to my henkaku vita device in adrenaline?

    Great news!

    Add “ux0:app/PSPEMUCFW/sce_module/adrenaline_kernel.skprx" to the *KERNEL section of taiHEN’s config.txt and reboot your device.

    Adding this line doesn’t seem to work for me since after rebooting i still need to open adrenaline twice in order for it to work after installing it.

    Looks like there’s an update inbound imminently – TheFlow has just checked in a fix for a crash when using CSO images.

    I didn’t need to add anything to the config for it to work :/
    Just removed the old adrenaline and all lines to it then installed the v6 vpk, thats it.

    Just posting to let people know that having to open adrenaline twice despite adding the line of text is an sd2vita issue. Using a normal ps vita memorycard and adding the line of text adrenaline loads up fine by opening it only once.

  8. Where do i put my PSP Games to play on Adrenaline?

  9. fate6

    OK I think I got it, the reason for the double boot thing is because its a kernel plugin that I assuem you are all placeing in ux0 which is your SD, the problem here is that kernel plugins are loaded before the SD is set as ux0 so adrenaline’s plugins do not load.

    This was a problem with the other versions as well not just v6 BTW and the solution there was just move the adrenaline plugins into ur0 and point the config to them there.

    Hahah i saw this post and i jumped almost through the ceiling.. i had a *** day and this makes my day good again!!!

    Again, the pictures in the article prove that Aurora is The_Zett. He still uses that poor hentai girl since 2012

    • ZeroSbr

      Or they just use the same/similar backgrounds?

    • Ember

      I’m sure they just use what they have available. Whether that’s a collection of links, or more likely, a collection of images on their server, collected at some point I guess before 2013.
      That’s what you’d do in a job/project like this.
      Anyway, I find this whole “Aurora is The_Zett” persuit to be a strange sort of fascinatation, too.

      • Aurora

        I’m not exactly sure what you lot are talking about here with reused pictures/links.

        Most of my article pictures are taken straight off my PSVita minutes before I write my articles. As for links, I copy the relevant links which, to my knowledge at least, are not from ages ago since they mostly link to new releases/discussions.

        I also was not aware that The_Zett used an Ika Musume CXMB theme on his PSVita but that doesn’t matter as I only use the theme because ‘Squid Girl’ is one of my favourite anime.

        (and yes, this wild goose chase fascinates me too!)

    Awesome!! Long live The Flow

    Why does Adrenaline keep saying I don’t have the 661.PBP file?

    I also was getting the Error Code: c1-2858-3

    >: Added ux0:app/PSPEMUCFW/sce_module/adrenaline_kernel.skprx
    -: still got the Error Code: c1-2858-3
    >: I removed ALL CSO’s, and ISO’s
    -: still got the Error Code: c1-2858-3

    I Finally Wiped out /ux0:/pspemu and re-installed from scratch. After re-installing I started to add all folders, games, saves, themes, and plugins. I found out that it isn’t the CSO that was causing my issue. The issue that was causing my Error Code: c1-2858-3 was the CXMB CFW Plugin for Custom Themes.

    ms0:/cxmb/cxmb.prx 1
    VIA: /ux0:/pspemu/sepluginsvsh.txt

    Removing the ms0 in the text, and replaced it with ux0 gave me a PSP Boot Screen. Now the Problem is the CXMB Themes do not show in the menu in the Themes nor does switching it on/off Recovery Menu work.

    I tried mixing up different Url’s for the CXMB but have not concluded it to work in any mixed order. Re-adding the original url into the TXT gave me the error back.

    • Quake

      After more digging, I come up with my solution. I had the wrong CXMB.PRX. I was using a CXMB.prx I had for my PSP’s.

      If you have a problem booting into the ePSP with the Code: c1-2858-3. You could have the wrong CXMB.prx.
      cxmb.prx 24 KB – Wrong Size
      cxmb.prx 8 KB – Right Size

      You can find the right one by Google Searching: PSVita Adrenaline CXMB
      www .
      ^^^REMOVE SPACES ^^^ www . r

      Just get the right cxmb and replace it. Make sure to turn off Sony Boot Logo in Recovery Menu. Boot into Recovery Menu by Hold the RIGHT Trigger right after you boot into Adrenaline 6. You can Disable the cmxb from there to check if it isn’t the cxmb that’s causing your error code: c1-2858-1

      Hope this helps someone else.

  16. teoz

  17. DjTrmup

    Thanks for the new version! Anyone who is having butthurt problems i suggest you delete the adrenaline that was already installed using the easyinstaller then after install the newest vpk from the flow and your problem is no longer. Halloween is around the corner then Thanksgiving and Christmas so remember to buy the flow a beer or two since it’s his work he is sharing with the world!

  18. Shiggitay

    Has anyone found a way to get PSP Bubbler working?

    Works perfectly! Using my own SD2Vita and Adrenaline runs flawless!

  21. mrSoczi

    I am running Enso installed through HENKaku. Never used Adrenaline. Never had taiHen. Will this work for me? Should I just install the vpk? Thanks

      As long as you’re on the right PSVita Firmware(3.60). If you’re below 3.60 you can find the TUT on here to get you safely to 3.60 as long as you take heath in the instructions. If you’re over the 3.60 firmware threshold, then you’re SOL for now.



  22. nice....but

    I don’t understand why this is so popular, I mean good work on the devs working hard on it but come on psp games are old now and its easy to grab a psp and hack it these days for less than $10….and PS1 games…seriously? lol.
    Meh…each to their own I guess. My orignal psp and ps1 was hacked long ago so I guess I was just burnt out on psp/ps1 games…shrugs.
    (not bashing, was just generally curious how this plugin is so popular over the rest)

    • Ape

      because we want universal handheld machine i guess 😀

      i do own all PS console but u know ” it is my stigma since i was kid that dont understand why PS2 cant do PS1 , PS3 cant do PS2
      ( i know it all about Money reason as i grew up) haha

    • SeanP2500

      bro have you had experience with ps1 lineup?

  23. Xtremegamer

    Any tutorial to go from OFW 1.80 to this ?

  24. Athena

    I was trying to run a PSX game and I’m getting an error “Game could not be started 80020148” on Castlevania (SOTN). I placed the file eboot file on pspemu/psp/game/SLUS0006. Do I still need to install popsloader plugin as well?
