    there's another way. u need to set npdrm to 0 iirc by using the registry. u also need the psn bypass suprx. place it wherever and link that location with ur tai configuration file. then, open the registry app, change the number to 0 iirc. get out of that. then, try to activate the system. btw, u need to refresh tai by going into molecular shell, pressing start, then clicking refresh. I have a tutorial on this on another site, but my mind is sorta hazy.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    btw, bypassing it in this way will glitch the system if u use easy installer for adrenaline. the reason is that the plugin is no longer being read since easy installer recreates the tai configuration file. it's a bug I believe. it only glitches out if u try to access psn to activate the game and ur system still has npdrm set to 0. it's safe.

    Yea, thats what I meant. Im accessing the settings menu through the easy installer, and yet its returning me to my Ps vita home page when I deny the update. (Sorry for the lack of clarification).

    Hi is this still working?

    I have a recently formatted 3.60 firmware, logged in with a new PS Network account, installed henkaku (with spoofing) got the bubble app to install after putting the act.dat file, deleted it, rebooted, but I still got an app activation error. I then removing spoofing, but I then get logged out of my account with a connection has been terminated. (NW-2293-6) HELP!

    I've heard that sony is deactivating vitas on henkaku for signing in, so that may be your problem. back up the activation files or this could happen.

    yeah, there's a list of files for activation on wololo: act.dat - tm0:npdrm/act.dat , and the system.dreg and system.ireg - vd0:registry/system.dreg vd0:registry/system.ireg. there r more than that though.

    I'm assuming the tutorial on wololo was written due to this deactivation thing happening. I heard elsewhere that it was from signing in.

    I am on ENSO. I just managed to login to PS Network after being blocked yesterday. I have the 212.47.229.76 manual DNS (to start with). I formatted the memory card yesterday (and did a system restore from safe mode)

    Step 1
    Create this folder tm0\npdrm using vita shell 1.51 - DONE

    Step 2
    Use this dummy act.dat file, unrar and extract the dummy file. - DONE
    http://www.mediafire.com/?e66w9c953abugq2

    Step 3
    Put the dummy file in tm0\npdrm - DONE

    Step 4
    Launch epsp 2.0, press x to create the game bubble. - DONE

    Step 5
    After your vita restarts, it should install the bubble, after that, go back to the tm0\npdrm folder and delete the dummy act.dat. - DONE- IT DID INSTALL BUBBLE

    Step 6
    Relaunch epsp 2.0, press x after it tells you to activate your vita.(this step is usually where a lot of people got looped on) - IT REBOOTED, BUT WHEN I WENT IN AGAIN I WAS ABLE TO LAUNCH SETTINGS UPON REBOOT

    Step 7
    Relaunch epsp 2.0, this time it should tell you to activate your vita in the settings menu, press x and it'll then brings you directly to the settings. - DONE

    Step 8
    Once in the settings, go to psn and it will tell you to update, just hit cancel and it'll bring you back to the psn menu. - DONE

    Step 9
    Go to activate system, choose game, and then activate.- DONE

    Step 10
    Your vita is now activated.- NO I GET ERROR 80558325

    I the repeated above steps after setting DNS to automatic (and rebooting).

    HELP!!!!

    Yeah, this no longer works. At present, there is no way to activate a Vita on 3.60. This thread should be locked to keep people from wasting their time.

    it's a shame, we wouldn't need to activate if we had real sig patches, because we could just installed a (pirated/backup) psp game and have it working - and install adrenaline to that.
    good that theflow will make it not need to be activated, but still, it's nice to be able to use backups of our own content.
    and maidump/vitamin are not perfect!

    it's probably a good idea to keep backups of the activation files. here's the list (credits to Berion at psx place). don't worry if not all are present on your system:

    vd0:/registry/system.dreg
    vd0:/registry/system.ireg

    tm0:/npdrm/act.dat
    tm0:/psmdrm/act.dat
    tm0:/clouddata/mcid.dat

    ux0:/id.dat

    ux0:/license/app/*
    ux0:/pspemu/PSP/LICENSE/*

    ur0:/user/00/shell/db/act.db
    ur0:/user/00/np/myprofile.dat

    I actually don't have any licenses in the app folder. however, I do have most of the dlc for tales of hearts. I'm not sure where that license is located or if it even has one.

    is it pirated dlc? i assume not but that would answer it :)
    i can see my licenses in license/addcont/
    but maybe some games use dlc in a different way than normal

    not all of it is. I bought the costumes from the psn store, but I had to pirate the gamestop exclusive content. I know dlc is normally stored in the addcont folder, but if u use it with mai, it goes in the dlc folder in the app/title id folder. I have it working with the mai dump in this way.
