[TRICK] Bypass autoshutdown for DemoMode Vitas

Post by Freakler » Sun Jun 29, 2014 2:15 pm

This Tutorial will simply show you how to trick a DemoMode-Vita aka Kiosk Device to not autoshutdown itself.

Explanation:
All IDUs (Internal Demonstration Units) are programmed to autoshutdown themselfs after 5 minutes of not
being connected to a power source and on the other side boot automatically if the power is restored.
This function is implemented to shutdown the Vita after closing time of your favourite gaming Store
and restart it the next day. It just gives the Vita time to cool down and extends the lifetime.

Attention: IDUs additionally check everytime they boot for a SystemUpdate and will install it without any user operation!!
(as long as they are connected to Wifi)

So of course you could keep your Vita connected to power the whole time but.. yeaaah '-'

This is how to do it:
  1. Turn off your Vita completely
  2. Connect the powercable -> the vita should start into DemoMode
  3. Deactivate the DemoMode by pressing and holding L + R + UP + START for 5 seconds
  4. Press the Power Button to standby your Vita and wait till the blue led is completely off
  5. Disconnect the cable and wake up your Vita
You should now be able to use it as long as you want just like it were a normal one. :)


Tested on 2.61, 3.01, 3.15 and 3.18 so far
(IDUs with older 1.XX firmwares doesn't autoshutdown in the unlocked mode!!!)

You buy them? It's very much possible to get shop or dev equipment.
Heck Just last month there was a bunch of test PS4's for sale at iirc $1800 plus I have seen proto Vita's go for about $1k..... I need more money ;_;
(I really wanted that GO style Vita dang it!)

For some reason this didn't work for me. Granted, I'm not sure that the power cable is working. Does the battery indicator change its appearance when the unit is charging?

You can easily check if your cable is working because the vita will autostart when power is connected.
And no there's no indicator/led light when charging.

Thanks, I'm going to buy a new cable today and will confirm later if this method worked.
