    Hello! This is my first ever tutorial on here so if I'm doing something wrong feel free to tell me.

    INTRODUCTION
    Most tutorials from before HENKaku came out were written to make use of the "fail-mail" trick which allowed you to write system files using an exploit in the email app which got patched more than a year ago. If anything, this tutorial is more of a re-write of this tutorial done by HackInformer last year which used the "fail-mail" trick. I am updating it to HENKaku.

    Credit to Benuno for doing this first:

    And hackinformer for making the text tutorial:
    http://hackinformer.com/2015/10/09/how-to-get-ps3-remote-play-working-on-the-playstation-tv/

    DUMPING YOUR APP.DB
    First, open Molecular Shell's FTP and connect to it. (I use FileZilla)
    Once connected navigate to ur0:/shell/db/app.db
    Copy the app.db somewhere safe.

    MODIFYING YOUR APP.DB
    I recommend using this: https://github.com/sqlitebrowser/sqlitebrowser/releases to open your app.db.
    Next, download this file: http://www.mediafire.com/download/8llqn9vpdpva1el/pstv_PS3_remote_play.rar (this is by Benuno not me)
    Extract all the csv files into a folder somewhere.
    Then, open your app.db in SQLite Browser.
    Goto browse data, and in the dropdown box find each section that corresponds with the names of the csv files, then goto file import and import the csv of the same name, it should ask if you want to merge the tables, just click yes.
    Now, navigate to appinfo_icon and change the position to an unused one.
    Straight from HackInformer:



      • page id = the page on your vita’s live area
      • pos = where the bubble will appear on your vita, you can only have 9 bubbles per page.
    For me that would be pageId 3 and pos 9.
    Choose "Write Changes" SQLiteBrowser.

    RE-IMPORTING YOUR APP.DB
    Connect back to your PSTV with FTP and put the app.db back where you found it, although first you may want to make a backup of your old one, just in case. When you drag it back in it will ask if you want to overwrite, just click yes.
    Now, reboot (not standby) your PSTV and if you did everything right you should have PS3 Remote Play!
    If you connect via private network you won't have to update your system.

    TO GET ALL FEATURES ON PSTV AS BENUNO POINTED OUT:

    What do you mean by connect to a private network and when you say reboot ..you would have to enable henkaku after rebooting?
    Also is there a list of games that is supported with ps3remote play?

    You should reenable HENKaku after rebooting, and by private network I mean once PS3 Remote Play is enabled it will ask whether you want to connect to your PS3 over internet or over a private network, if you choose internet it will make you update so you have to choose private network.
    As for setting up remote play itself, try this: http://www.guidingtech.com/22172/remote-play-ps3-ps-vita/
    This tutorial was just to enable it, although setup is pretty straight forward. Sadly, most games aren't compatible with this but you can find a compatibility list with a quick Google.

    This feature works great for PSTV owners. However limitation is the missing L2 L3 R2 and R3 functions. Graphic wise it's inferior than PS4 Link.

    Hope to see coders tweak this feature more.

    Gambia, The
    Attention: Keep in mind that you can't use all features of the PS3 Remote Play app via only doing these steps.
    After importing all the CSVs change the "gda" value from "NPXS10012" (Search both values in "tbl_appinfo" in SQLBrowser) to "gd" so you can use the PSTV Touch Emulation.
    Otherwise you can't get out of any game or change any settings because you would need to use the touchscreen emulation for that, which doesn't work with vita system apps. Therefore you have to change the value to "gd", which the vita recognices a vita game and therefore touchscreen emulation works then :).

    BTW the files are originaly from me :/. Hackinformer credited me as the source in the original article after i asked them why they used screenshots + files of my youtube video without mentioning me. (Of course they were also able to create a tutorial themself, but they were just using my stuff, so i think i have a right to get mentioned for the files :D)
    (I don't understand why they aren't mentioning my youtube video as a video instruction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7TnDlgMYQQ)

    Thanks for the tip!
    Oh, I honestly didn't even notice that. I'll quote this in the OP and add credit.
