    Hi all,

    I'm trying to take the opportunity while Henkaku can spoof PSN to "buy" and install a PSP Demo on my Vita for VHBL usage (I have a 3.60 Vita that was never activated online by me, just previous owner).

    What I have tried so far is:

    Signed in to my PSN account on this Vita.
    Activated it for "Game" and "Video & Music" in settings
    On my PC I "bought" the 6 PSP/PSV demos I could find for free:
    - Split-Second
    - LittleBigPlanet
    - TNT Racers
    - Gladiator Begins
    - Cars 2 The Video Game
    - Army of TWO - The 40th Day
    On my PSV I go to PS Store and then Download List
    All 6 game demos show, but all 6 say "Cannot download using this system"


    How can i get a PSP Demo installed before the opportunity to spoof expires?? I CANNOT use the PS3 copy method. My available hardware to make this work is my one and only PS Vita and my PC.

    Any ideas on why I get this message on the download list? Did I not fully activate correctly? I tried the button to remote install from the PS Store website and it acted as if it worked but nothing every begins installing on my Vita.


    Thanks in advance for any help or ideas on how to get around this problem!

    What region are you in for PSN?

    I'm US/NA, and I recall two demos actually being downloadable: LocoRoco Midnight Carnival and Petz Saddle Club.
    The latter was definitely downloadable recently; I DL'd it on my PSTV when 3.60 was the latest.

    The majority of downloads, sadly, are not downloadable directly if at all.
    You need to find the ones that are.

    Why do you need a PS3 just use your vita and there is a crap ton of free games.

    I'm US/NA as well. I couldn't even find those two demos?!
    When I was on the PS Store on my PC you could search for PSP games with Demo's available - but how do you get the demos? I only see the purchase option. This is why I tried the 6 demos I listed because they were "Demo Only" downloads. I can't even find the demo version of the two you listed??

    Just search them on your vita and search Unit 13 and dont search demo only because some wont show up

    Demo listings either have a "Download Demo" option or are out on their own; I forget which.
    The Vita won't let you install many, if any, demos, so you need to just find one that does.

    Alternatively, find a super cheap PSP game off PSN and buy that, it's all the same.
    This link should lead to Petz Saddle Club Demo on web PSN store; maybe try the send to vita button on it?

    be sure to back it up using qcma as well in case by some chance it gets deleted or corrupted. happened to me back when i used it on 3.50

    Thanks, good call.

    Do you know of the steps to get a VHBL bubble can be done with QCMA too or must I use CMA like all the instructions mention? If so, how could I do that without being forced to update to 3.61?
