An explanation to what ReNpDrm is and why you should be excited about it


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.

  2. Sol

    woohooo first
    its a big thing for unactivated users
    other than thats its not a really big deal

  3. g4nz

    will it alow me to play games online?

    There’s a very high chance we’ll get banned from using this, or it will get patched again for psn downloads from working..

    • Code

      Well, not discounting Sony’s stupidity, but it would be a bad move for them to block access to the store again. Online Multiplayer I can see them banning, but kicking people out of the store who are willing to give you money for your products, is not the best way to encourage them to forgo piracy. Especially when most of the game library is online exclusive.

        tbh i think sony is more concerned about their security in general than actual piracy or they never would have patched it.

      • Panda

        Considering they’re banning people’s PS3s AND PSNs due to “violation of terms and services” and effectively shutting them out of all their purchases, I doubt they care if it’s a “stupid move”.

    I’m in Japan, my Vita TV is in the UK. I hope I can get to use this plugin when I return in Feb!

    what about psn accts that were banned and have vitas connected to those banned accts? will this allow us to connect to psn for games, updates, etc…?

  7. Rolenzorol

    but what if sony bans my account and i cant use my ps4?

  8. kurdish

    And more people will be banned just like me

    “or consoles that Sony rudely deactivated..”

    What is this referring to?

    • Bob

      Sony started deactivating ps vitas that connected to psn using 3.60, they deleted or atleast changed the activation code in the ps vita.

      • Carl Trek

        Someone said by using a special tweak vpk, you can flash a PSVita developing kit’s firmware into a ordinary PSVita and it will never be deactivated. I know there is the tweak that can change the firmware, but I don’t know whether it will stop deactivating.

        Isnt that to be expected when you go online with a hacked system?

  10. Sony rules from the top/Nintendo repeatedly sells nostalgia

    Thanks for Vita love. I don’t know if I’d ever feel comfortable buying games from PSN via a Henkaku Vita though.

    • Sony fanbabies are pathetic.

      These troll usernames are funny. especially considering that Sony remastered the entire PS1 line up lol

      • Nintendo fanboys are also pathetic

        Not entirely as Gran Turismo 1 nor 2 is on psn, also the driver 2 is not on store, careful with what you write

  11. Mo Poge

    I thought there already was a solution for those with unactivated Vitas?

  12. kyon_dw

    3.63 user here, can only watch you people from the distant…

  13. bla

    Is there any way for Sony to detect the fact that a Vita is running henkaku with this plugin, i.e., is there any chance to get your psn account banned? What do you think?

  14. judael

    A stupid question; Can this be used to reactivate a banned ps3 on psn? or is vita exclusive?

    • If your banned on ps3 then you’ll need a new PSID or something like that, its possible to extract a PSID from any PSP I think, so with that you’ll b able to swap out your consoles I’d to get online again.

    this is cool and all but i’m not excited, but i will be when someone finds out how to run 3.61+ games on 3.60
