    Hello,

    Ive got a Vita FW3.52 and PSTV FW3.51. While the custom bubbles do work on the vita, they won't start on the PSTV. They all exit immediately with "Application cannot be used" message.

    I tried different Basegames but that doesnt matter. (echochrome micro, puzzlescapes and megamix)
    I already tried both versions (overwriting the dat-file with mail and the sql-injection into app.db) of the whitelist hack and it is indeed working for vita-games and psx-games, but not for custom bubbles.

    Had anybody successful attempts with it and a bubble with ARK/Homebrew running on PSTV?

    Any error code? Are you sure you're signing it right?

    No error code. You start the bubble and you'll be welcomed with: "This application cannot be used with this system. If this application is supported by the PSTV system, update the application."

    Im absolutely sure I signed everything right. The eboot works on my Vita. No mistakes here.
    Im not the only one.

    apply the vita tv whitelist hack. The second one preferably.

    EDIT: oh, sorry it seems it doesn't work. No other idea unfortunately. BTW i have qwik's bubble working on my 3.20 PSTV.

    Yes (for the Vita, haven't tried it on a PSTV, yet). A lot of trial and error- mostly in the way of me getting the bubble but it kicking me out immediately.

    Simply put, of the games I tried (Persona PSP, Cladun X2, PoolHall Pro, Piyotama, and Ape Quest), Ape Quest was the only one that worked. I don't know if it works with the original tutorial I followed, but I do know that it works with Zett's:

    I succesfully installed the new custom bubbles (without exploit games). Confirmed working when using as a base:

    - Echochrome DEMO (used for TN-V11)
    - LocoRoco Midnight Carnival DEMO (used for ARK)

    Tried to use, but did not show in Content Manager when trying to transfer from the PS3:
    - Dissidia Final Fantasy DEMO
    - Pixeljunk Monsters Deluxe DEMO
    - WipEout DEMO
    - Petz Saddle DEMO

    Transfered but did not test, probably works as base too:
    - Ape Quest DEMO

    My system: PlaystationTV - 3.50

    Thank you very much for your help. I have now running the ARK-Bubble with the help of PuzzleScape without modifying App.db. Its the new method with the hacked save.
    Maybe fw3.51 introduced more security-mechanics to disable running unsupported software on PSTV. While all bubbles work on PSV, they don't work on PSTV like I said in the opening post. Im in EU-Region
    and I can't download DEMOs with the PS3 which transfer successfully afterwards to PSTV (they just don't come up in the downloadlist from CMA).

    How would I be able to put any psp games on my 3.52 vita without it updating to 3.55? or Am I basically screwed with having to upgrade to be able to get into psn to get a game?
