How to install SSL Certificates on your PSVita

Did you ever just want to install some SSL Certificates to your Vita but just couldn’t because Sony never made a function for that? Well, now you can thanks to some research by Developer HaiHakkulku.

Here is what he posted on Twitter for everyone who wants to install some SSL certificates on his Vita:

“How to install a SSL cert on a PS vita:

1) Grant read write access to vs0 using vitarw (can be found here https://github.com/tomtomdu80/VitaRW)”
(If you want a nicer looking version of VitaRW I recommend the Version by Close2Insanity).
“2) Copy over “/vs0/data/external/cert/CA_LIST.cer” to your pc
3) Get your SSL certificate you want to install(if your using Charles proxy you can get it from the help menu -> SSL Proxying)
4) Open up both the vita “CA_LIST.cer” on your pc and the ssl cert to install”
(I recommend using Notepad++ to open the CA_LIST.cer and the SSL Certificate that you want to install).
“5) Put a comment naming your cert at the bottom of the “CA_LIST.cer” file eg “#Charles Cert” then copy everything from the ssl cert to install at the bottom of this file
6) Save the file and copy the “CA_LIST.cer” back to “/vs0/data/external/cert/” and overwrite the file there
7) Reboot

The bottom of your “CA_LIST.cer” should look like this roughly
