Package Installer on firmware 3.60

Post by xXDarkCodeXx » Mon Aug 22, 2016 12:04 am

The title says everything: we managed to get official pkg installer on a CEX vita. Not in IDU mode, so there is no risk to update or brick!
Now I'm not a genius, everyone could do that.
No one did, so I'm here to guide you.

First thing: credits
First I want to say "THANK YOU" to some people:

Silica - for giving me some infos and Ideas AND testing
PixelButts and The Dark Lord - for files (Dark Lord's files has been deleted)
Bajunan - for ideas
Team molecule - for HENkaku
TheFlow - for VitaShell
major_tom - for VitaRW

Explanation
As you know since 3.36 we can no longer open PKG Installer, as sony patched it, but the app is still there. Why? I think that PSVita still uses that for installing PKGs, in silent mode or something like that. Silica found that it is called FAKE package installer. So we tought that there would be a REAL pkg installer. Well, kind of. On DEX vitas the PKG installer is bigger than the CEX one, and the DEX one actually works! So we replaced the CEX pkg installer with the DEX one, and it works!

How to get it
Well, you need VitaRW (You can find it on internet) and HENkaku with vitashell. Then you need this file
And any FTP manager on your computer.

Visit go.henkaku.xyz or use offline installer.
Then open VitaRW and when you read 0x000000 close it.
Open VitaShell and press select to open a FTP server. Connect via FTP to your vita from your pc. Browse to "vs0:app" and backup NPXS10031. Extract the file that you have downloaded and copy the extracted folder in your "/app" folder.
If you already got the PKG Installer bubble you can already open and enjoy it, else follow this guide or use this site





DON'T TOUCH FILES IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, IT COULD BRICK YOUR VITA!!!!!!!!

Dammit, why can't people just share. It could have lead to more things.

Thank you, it's very well to do not have to go to IDU anymore...
Because some people had updated their vita to 3.61 because of that...
But now, be careful with VitaRW.
It bricks your Vita if you write/delete on os0:.
Otherwise, you can write/delete to vs0: without risk of brick (but semi-brick can happened).
