          Geez, chill out, guys. He’s just trying to volunteer.

          • Sleetui says:

            Yeah, that’s understandable. But when you see someone that types “i have much time and I can speak english quite well”. It’s concerning.

    Yesss Vita hack full!!Yesss yesss yesss!!!!!

  3. Radhew says:

    HENkaku works on PSTV? I’m ecstatic that the whitelist is back! Looks like it’s time to shell out 30 bucks and finally play some of these Vita games.

  4. makak1984 says:

    It works only with game cards ? or it will also work with games transfered by CMA?

  5. Cheska says:

    Vita Cartridges are working great! The only problem comes from digital downloads now. For instance, Neptunia 1 and Tetris are not working. Any ideas on what it would take to get those off the white list, or are digital downloads hard coded to not work maybe?

    • What did you use to install the new whitelist hack? The app or the tutorial? I haven’t tried the HENkaku whitelist hack myself yet, but I’ve used a PSTV with 3.52 and the Mr.Gas whitelist hack enabled and it worked fine for digital Vita games. Crazy Market booted up without issue, although I recently downloaded the PSP game Crazy Taxi Fare Wars. While it worked on my Vita handheld, it didn’t work on the PSTV.

  6. makak1984 says:

    I have question about PS TV if it accepts USB Gamepads same as PS3 ?

  7. Daipop says:

    That only left us with PSOne Loader Left, Do you know if the Bubble method of the flow for psone works with henkaku? or does it need kexploit to work?

  8. Samurai says:

    I have a Vita on 3.36, and a PS TV on 3.60, which is currently used to run the hack. It’s cool how whitelist is now supported again, it’s like a little bonus for TV users.

  9. thedarkone says:

    I was trying this with Soul Sacrifice and it doesn’t seem to work… Perhaps there’s something I’m doing wrong?

  10. rxtom says:

    hoy a bout a “how to install custom themes with henkaku ” ? :v

  11. Smaddy123 says:

    So will the whitelist hack ever work with downloaded digital titles?

  12. Dash Krimson says:

    Yup, works for me. Playing Dangan Ronpa 1 on my UK PSTV right now, in fact.

    Thank you so much for this, pixelbutts and the guys at Molecule. You’ve all breathed new life into my Vita!

  13. NekketsuCL says:

    Please help… I have a loop with my tv in HENkaku website and appears all time an error page…! I update for nothing this ***

    • Karl says:

      I have the same issue I think it is because I don’t have a memory card? I’m going to get one today

      All I get is the error loop and never installs the exploit

  14. NoobHacker says:

    Also you can achieve The whitelist via app.db, going to ur0/shell/app.db, and make the new file sending to your email via calendar app. Finally apply the app.db metod to your file and put the new file in ur0/shell/ after has deleted the old file

  15. Gamingcrayon says:

    Will this work for hyperdimension neptunia re; birth 1?

  16. Sebastien says:

    I have Tetris PS Vita but the game non working even whit the whitelist.
    Is there a possibility that the game works?

    GAME PCSB 00642

  17. jp says:

    Guys, FIFA15 and Fat Princess won’t work on PSTV even with the Whitelisted… is there any way to make FIFA15 work on PSTV ?

  18. Charles Fasano says:

    Will this allow us to run PSOne games that the PSTV will refuse to install/run?

  19. Cse69 says:

    Dont work little big planet digital edition please enable or fix thanks

  20. thedarkone says:

    For those who don’t wanna do this everytime you reboot your psvita tv here is a faster method…

    • Charles Fasano says:

      That is the same file that is listed at the top of this page.

    • pikachuk says:

      the best method is the app.db, it’s definitive (unless a database reconstruction) and it launches more titles than the list_launch_vita.dat

      • Catmato says:

        Does the app.db method work over FTP or do you still have to do the email thing? I tried it over ftp but I’m not sure if it’s just the game that doesn’t work. Game is Dengeki Bunko Climax.

      • Charles Fasano says:

        Where can I find information on what to modify? I can’t find any information what to modify in the app.db file.

  21. vitadoom says:

    asking for a tutorial howto install vitadoom with working wads :p lol

  22. scipion says:

    How do you install an app through Henkoku? to use the whitelister, thks

  23. Sc0rpi0 says:

    Everytime I try to install HENkaku it hard resets my PStv.
    I tried clearing my cookies, I’ve rebuild my database, I tried multiple Wi-Fi connections it doesnt seems to work 🙁
    Any ideas ?

    Thanks 🙂

  24. Immortallix says:

    I used this and got neptunia PP to run but the touch control emulation doesn’t work. Can anyone help me out?

  25. NeoToriyama says:

    For people that keep having restarts on their PSTV, you have to have memory card. The exploit won’t install without one. (Internal Memory DOES NOT WORK)

  26. XcomProject says:

    This Does NOT work with downloaded Games from PSN, Wanted to play Xcom and Sid Revolution 2 but cant 🙁 any ideas?

    • Charles Fasano says:

      I am playing Ratchet and Clank Collection which is a PSN only game on my PSTV. There are some games that still don’t work. I am using whitelister1_1.vpk.

  27. Mr.Wilder says:

    Doesn’t work, tried Love Live, still won’t start up. This whitelist is rubbish.

  28. SergeEXE says:

    Works with Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles (which I’ve never understood why it wasn’t Whitelisted already) but not for the Vita version of Gal*Gun Double Peace (which does work with the analog sticks and buttons, no touchscreen necessary)

  29. Stranger says:

    If you’re trying to run Ps1/PSP Games (like Valkyria Chronicles 2) you might also have to replace the “list_launch_emu.dat” in the same folder.

    That should make those games run, worked for me.

    That being said, is there any way to protect those whitelists so that they dont get changed ever again? I guess i could take the card out of my pstv and load new games I purchased on the store on my vita and then put the card back, but not everyone has both systems and also I’m very lazy ^^

  30. boct says:

    Sadly, when I bought my PSTV it shipped from Gamestop with 3.61. Is there anything I can do besides wait for another exploit?

  31. Miguel Angel Esparza Calero says:

    Hi excuse me with this Whitelist, I can play all the games of psvita on ps tv , cause I going to buy one but the specifics games that I want seems that doesn’t run it like (Project Diva Hatsune Miku X . AoT, GRush and others) that’s why I Am Asking can someone answer me plz

  32. Brian says:

    Hey all, does the pstv mail exploit still work? I get the files onto my pstv ok, but the #0 file displays as ‘Done’, instead of #0! Clicking on it does nothing. Anyone else have this problem?
    Thanks all

    • Radhew says:

      It should work fine as long as your Vita is 3.60. Anything above that will not work. If you’re on the right version and it’s still not working, try getting HENkaku and downloading the blacklister app. Its v2 option is a permanent fix.

  33. kzn says:

    does this works on 3.63?

  34. hoody men says:

    Excellent website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew
    of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of community
    where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

  35. Juan3278 says:

    Question #1: Can you play online multiplayer with a whitelisted PSTV? Want to play Resistance Burning Skies which is a game that can be played on a whitelisted PSTV.

    Question #2: What’s the difference between using the app method versus just the regular method (which is posted on this page).

  36. Some really superb blog posts on this site, thank you
    for contribution.
