ePSP Bubble Installer 2.0 – Activation without PSN!- (PSVita)


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.

      This was really useful thank you, now do you have a guide on Activating my unactivated almonds?

  1. GenRyuu says:

    Stuck at step 2:
    Always get Np-11821-3 when I’m trying to “activate” the device

  2. Waldi says:

    Damn not working, i tried everything and cant activate only get NW-2290-3 🙁

  3. Vivissimus says:

    Doesn’t work for me.Inside the app I pressed X and openned the settings.But I have to sign in before activating and it says:”Cannot sign in.You must update the system software.(NP-2066-4)”. What can I do?((((((((((( Without signing in system activation doesn’t work(

  4. TechTomas says:

    yeah same here it worked the first time i tried it yesterday and i was trying to make a video and i probably done the process about 20 25 times and every thing i do it tells me i need to update and doesn’t seem to completly work offline only sometimes i can get it to being signed in status but once click on system activation it tells me i need to update so im wondering maybe sony already patched this on their side i have no idea, but im done i’m going with the tried and true way 🙂

  5. TechTomas says:

    any one thats been brave and tried this and reset their vita and lost their activation, and cant get it back can go here to recover your activation,


    heres a video so you can see it in action:

    So? I already signed into my vita before and signed out… So this detects that Im already activated.. But my system says im not :/ If I do a factory reset but take my sd card out will putting the sd card back in be able to read all of my files? Or will I have to start all over?

  7. pacjr says:

    Simply amazing! I can now play PSP games via PSTV on a big screen, with my CFW PS3 certain games did not run that good. Thx Celeste Blue Ty Yifan Lu and Skeletor.. Adrenaline > ARK

  8. reymon says:

    work perfectly fine. first i cant use it cause an error, i had to click “square”, then the vita reboots, then launh the app again, then click “x” then put my psn acount (and when it ask for an update, i just click cancel) then go on whit the activation thingy, then reboot, then reinstall henkaku, then reopen the app and finish the process.
    then i use easy installer for adrenaline and thats it.
    thanks a lot for this

    If only you could use this to install more than one bubble, this app would be king

    I have installed three bubbles , one for adrenaline, another for ark and another for vbhl. All of them are working for three different psp demo ames

    • henry bogart says:

      but how?

      • Sahid says:

        follow this method to get the bubbles of psp games you owned on psn installed on your vita =
        Or log into your Sony entertainment network account and click download to get that funny file. open the file on your PC and copy the link to download the pkg of the said games.
        Go into idu and follow the instructions to install the pkgs you downloaded. if successful, exit idu and use fttp or vitashell to replace .rif file.
        Replace/rename the psp game’s .rif with the .rif in licence/vitashell folder .
        As long as the your vita’s game section shows activated in psn, the psp bubbles should run.
        You can now install vhbl and ARK on the psp games bubble you have intalled.
        So if you wish to have Adrenaline, vhbl and ark, then you should installed 3 psp game’s pkgs using the bubble installer on idu mode and replace/rename their .rif files
