    EDIT: As of the end of November, this method no longer works as PSN spoofing was broken by Sony. The only way to activate now is via this process using a PS3: https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-t...-check-here-first.403035/#Lower_FW_Activation

    A PS3 is 100% required as of now.

    FAQ

    What is Act.dat ?

    The act.dat is an activation file for a Sony Playstation console, based on an account email and password, the devices IDPS, the platform and activation type.

    How can i use this tool ?

    -Enter your account e-mail in "E-Mail"
    -Enter your account password in "Password" (sorry for that)
    -Enter your IDPS in "IDPS" (sorry for that , too)
    -Send

    Does this tool safe ?

    Yes , it's safe because it simulate a real ps vita and this is open-source , you can view i'm not stealing your playstation account :) !

    Is there a tool that do this automatically from the PS Vita ?

    Yes , vita-activator but some issues have reported .

    Does this tool is on beta ?

    Yes , currently.

    How can i help for building this tool ?

    You can become a beta-tester , help buiding the PHP Script , or just give a like at this post !

    How can i retrieve my IDPS ?

    For retrieve your IDPS you need to use VitaCID from Major_Tom/tomtomdu80.

    Sending your PSN login details to a site that just popped up, in plaintext, seems like a poor way to handle this...

    But then again, there's no other way for you to do this without releasing the PHP script and the "source". Is it much different from the script on the Vita dev wiki?

    Well, it seems like an exciting step forward anyways. Untethering Vita users from the PS3 is obviously useful.

    yeah no problem to refuse to buy a ps3, no one is expecting you ha
    but if you have one, use it :)

    yifanlu said we could maybe expect psn access via henkaku/hacks, so we will see what the future will bring :)

    Wait for a firmware spoofer. If it doesn't appear possible, buy a cheap PSTV and update it to 3.61 then use the IDU mode and a memory card unslaver to circumvent memory card usage restrictions.

    Hmm ok so that is possible.. a thing i dont understand is you have PSTV for ps4 and for vita? or all they all the same?
    And you can't control it with a vita? but only a seperate dualshock controller?

    A PSTV is a model of the PS Vita .
    Instead of having a built in screen and controller, you plug it into your TV and use a PS3 or PS4 controller.
    Some games are blocked from working on the PSTV, but they download fine and you can force them to work using homebrew.
    It's also pretty cheap. You could probably find one secondhand for about €30.

    There's no region restrictions. I'm not sure if there are any other options when it comes to controls. I believe some bundles come with a controller.

    So I used VitaCID but I can't figure out which part is my IDPS. Is it the first 16 bytes?

    I'm not sure I get what the problem is then. I put in my PSN email, password, and then my dumped IDPS (Formatted as 00112233445566778899AABBCCDDEEFF) and run the script. act.dat doesn't download and it also doesn't appear in the directory. What am I doing wrong?
