  • list_launch_vita.dat
  • A registered e-mail account on your Vita

  • Note: This trick will obviously not make camera or microphone depending games fully work!


    Step 1: Replace list_launch_vita.dat

    If this is the first time you are going to use this Mail-Installer method,
    please make sure to follow this tutorial on how to set everything up first!

    1) Download list_launch_vita.dat if you haven't already. and rename it to #0


    2) Now you are going to write a new e-mail with our #0-file as attachment and the path we want the file to be installed (ur0:game/launch/list_launch_vita.dat) as subject. Send it to your vita!


    3) If everything did go right you should see a camera symbol. Touch it and DO NOT click OK on the appearing Error Message but simply close the e-mail app completely!

    4) Just to be sure restart your PlayStationTV and you should already be able to launch most of the blacklisted Vita-Games on your PSTV!


    Note: Rebooting your PSTV will remove the patch and you'll have to redo the whole process!

    If you want even MORE compatibility use the advanced Version 2 tutorial!



    FAQ & Troubleshooting

    My e-mail shows a [?] instead of the photo symbol?!

    Try resetting the Vita's mail account or resend the mail.

    Some of my games still won't work!?

    Yes. Some won't ever work since they need hardware the PSTV simply doesn't have.
