    Yep actually it still needs activation and Sony did something against it (or maybe it was against PS4 MTX modchip ?!). Anyway actually there's no way to activate PSVita on 3.60 firmware, TheFlow said that it's possible to modify Adrenaline to make it works without activation but he will not have time to do it before September (that isn't that far).

    Vita games you can, you mean PSP or PS1 games ! :) Well, you can always use PCSXRearmed core from RetroArch concerning PS1 games ! Its run pretty fine but I still prefer having PS1 stuff on Adrenaline. Just to wait till September.

    I haven't been on the psx adrenaline mode for a while because I know the popsloader doesn't work and many of my favorite games incompatible, so I simply use retroarch and it works fine, did they make popsloader work on adrenaline or is it that your favourite games are compatible on adrenaline stock without popsloader?

    PS1 games on Adrenaline work way better than Retroarch i.e gran turismo 2 wont even work on RA and many others have slow down issues the usual mess ups... but then again .. Adrenaline is kind of hit and miss for me for what works some eboots worked others did not ...

    Download a game on psn using the ps3 system, then copy it to the vita, that bout how you activate it. :)

    Your PS3 must be able to access psn and your vita should be spoofed properly.

    Hm how does one check if it's already activated as I bought it second hand and it wasn't factory wiped? I think...

    @Ballist1x : look into tm0:npdrm/ if there's an act.dat file.
    @Sonic Angel Knight : you didn't read comments cause I already pointed activation isn't possible anymore...
    @Vitaminer : which games do you want to play ? There's no popsloader support but its still using pops... I have many games working, so maybe I can confirm you if games you want to play are working. Latest Adrenaline is version 5.1 and there are just a few games not working on it. Even a vast majority of undubbed/modded ones are working.

    Concerning PS1 games on Vita and pops : https://gbatemp.net/threads/could-a...ster-than-real-psp.479376/page-2#post-7484715
