    I forgot
    IIRC, that's the error you get when your IP is banned for whatever reason.

    You'll have to wait 24-48 hours or use a mobile network or proxy server to activate.

    Had the same problem due to the fact that I had too many devices activated. So I first had to deactivate an old Vita and then activate the new one

    This may help :)

    Yes yes. The fact that I own multiple Vitas has nothing to do with it

    Because you're offline and if you never activated the machine before HENkaku it, you still have to activate your machine in order to use Adrenaline (the why I do not know)

    Im pretty sure this will solve your problem.

    Let us know :)

    you dont need the vita to be activated. just get one of the epsp bubble installers and install adrenaline to the bubble.

    once you install adrenaline with the method you mention and try to run it, it gives you the activate your vita error - this is what happened to me few days ago with my newly purchased PSTV (my third Vita xD )

    Since v2 you can activate the system. Latest version is here http://gekihen.customprotocol.com/en/project/ePSP-Bubble-Installer

    Btw, look in tm0:npdrm/ for the "act.dat" if it's 0 bytes, the console is not activated, it should be 400 kb's or more if I remember if it's activated.
