Package Installer


The Package Installer is a hidden app present in everyones Vita with which you can install DRM free content like Demos and Apps. There are different known ways to open up this App but all of them make use of calling a support_uri containing the internal TitleID of the Package Installer "NPXS10031".

After Firmware 3.20 Sony added some security instances to URI calls and patched away the useability of the PKG Installer app on retail devices..

..however with the release of HENkaku we can convert any Vita into a so called IDU easily which gives access to the Package Installer even on 3.60! (Please read this before converting to a Kiosk IDU)
