Read this if you can’t run the PS Vita Rejuvenate hack
Yifan Lu released his beta for the Rejuvenate native hack on the PS vita a couple of days ago. I am trampled by the amount of emails, comments, twitter notifications that people send me with questions, so I’ll try to answer these questions.
I have the PSM Dev Assistant installed on my PS Vita, but I don’t have a publisher’s key, what do I do?
You have two options:
The first one is to ask a friend (with a publisher license) to generate a key for you. How to do this is described here.
The second option is to wait: there is a solution being prepared for people who don’t have a publisher’s license. It works and is just pending release. Stay tuned.
I registered to the PSM Dev portal, but I don’t have the PSM Dev Assistant installed on my PS Vita, what do I do?
It all boils down to you being able to install the PSM Dev Assistant on your vita. If the PSM Dev Assistant shows up in your download list, there’s hope for you, and you should try to download and install it. Tips to do this with the help of a proxy are explained here. Try and do it asap. I’d personally recommend to update your Vita to firmware 3.51, but if that means losing an ePSP exploit, the choice is up to you.
If you don’t have the PSM Dev App installed, and if it doesn’t show up in your download list, then you might be out of luck 🙁
I don’t have the PSM Dev Assistant installed on my PS Vita, and generally I have no clue what’s going on here, what do I do?
It seems you didn’t pay attention over the past 6 weeks. A prerequisite to running the Rejuvenate hack is to have the PSM Dev Assistant installed on your PS vita. In order to do that, you need to be a registered PSM Developer. Registrations for the PSM Developer program closed a few weeks ago, so if you never registered as a PSM Dev, and more specifically if you did not install the PSM Dev Assistant app on your PS Vita, you basically missed this opportunity.
However, there’s some new hope for you: The Rejuvenate hack is the very first open door into the Vita’s internals. With luck, other vulnerabilities will be found, that might be turned into new exploits, some of which might not require the PSM Dev assistant. Only time will tell of course, so you’ll just have to stay tuned for now.
I have the PSM Dev Assistant on my Vita, I have a publisher’s key, I have rejuvenate, but the thing won’t work, what do I do?
More questions? Ask in the comments, I’ll do my best to answer if time allows.
