    Yeah how about no, the rar file you uplodaed won't extract and when I manually try to extract it using unrar and put it where you say to put it, I get a high from celesteblue could not install, ce-2311-7.

    I alaedy have a vita that's activated can I just use that act.dat?

    That file is made up of a blank notepad document, what I did was created a blank txt file using notepad and renamed it to act.dat, for convenience's sake I just upload it for the tutorial, you can use any file to fool epsp 2.0, as long as it is renamed to act.dat

    Thank you so much for the detailed & easy step-by-step for activating the PSV!
    I haven't own an account so I was so worried when the system keep prompting me to update when I tried to sign in. Glad that I found this thread and by following every step until the editing config.txt part. Now I can have Adrenaline running properly after rebooting & finally out of the C2-12828-1 error :D

    It still won't work. I got the file out of it as a blank file named act.dat on the directory said in the start but as it says it won't install right I still get that error how about that, what's gonig on there? According to the various other people before this thread came out it said it's an error about it not being activated so then what's goign on? I have a PSTV on 3.60 with taihenkaku on it.

    Also as I had said previously I have an act.dat already on my vita would copying/pasting it onto the pstv via ftp would that fix the error? It's the can't nstall error is that a nromal thing to see? I have gotten it 3 times in a row and said fuck it.

    I forgot
    Act.dat is tied to your system, you can't transfer it to another. If we could do that, we wouldn't have had to wait this long to get activation back without a PS3/PSN.

    I assume a PSN account is required to actually get the "activate" settings option to appear at the right point of this guide?

    Yes, best of do a system format before using this guide and link/sign up the psn account at the initial setup

    interesting, as i had issue of trying to activate it, it kept sayng to update - in the end, after i installed the epsp bubble i just installed andrenaline easy installer and it booted into og psp mode just fine.

    i wonder if this was because there was an account already on the system - i just purchased the pstv the other day from cash converters and it had someones account on it - it said the account was signed in but i never actually signed into it myself as ofc, as i don't know the password and plus its illegal even if i did - point is, it worked for me! :).

    Hi Guys. I've gotten up-to the system activation screen and clicked activate and it comes up with error E-80558325. I get the same error if I use the PS3 method as well via QMCA. Still stuck.

    That error is related to too many mobile devices being activated on the account.

    When you say it's a new account setup, you mean nothing has been activated on it before?

    PROBLEM SOLVED: It was the memory card causing the error. So guys if you ever come across the E-80558325 error try and change you memory card to a new one.

    Ok, so ive been super stuck on this for a while now. I followed this and a similar tutorial to a T, and yet my vita evades its activation. When I do this tutorial and I am asked about the update (while in system settings) I select cancel as instructed, but then i am sent back to the home menu. If I try to reenter the application I am met with a page (probably ebub2.2) with a text box that links me back to system settings. Ive already tried this tutorial and others about 5 times now. Has anyone else met with the same fate?
