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:
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 does'nt 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 themselfe, 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)

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.

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

    what are you looking at?
  • BakerMan
    ReZ and Xdqwerty, please stop looking at me.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Can't you run pssh?
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Some day I'll write out a properly formatted shell script that lives on our firmware server or git repo and just call that, and have that handle every kind of server we run much more gracefully than my hobbled together atrocity does right now
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    pssh - nope. 1, what I'm doing gets done from our bootable provisioning environment, and you can only interface with that via serial console - we don't accept ssh connections on the servers in that state, and 2, I don't even know if our bootable environment has pssh baked into it
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    3, I've never even heard of it before lol
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Anyway I can open serial console sessions to multiple devices at the same time, and broadcast my input to all of them (iTerm on Mac is the terminal emulator I'm using). It's just a matter of how many commands I'd have to run by hand, and how long they'd take otherwise lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I just assumed you were working via SSH. I know my way around that. If a server is only accessible locally it's waaay beyond saving from my end so I let the DC team work on that :tpi:
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I *am* the DC team :P the remote arm of it, anyway
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Trust me, I wish I could do everything I need to do via ssh. Working through these serial console servers suuuuuucks in comparison

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I love that there's a network filesystem that runs on top of ssh - sshfs
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I use it in most of my home network for mounting network storage in various *nix VMs
  • Veho @ Veho:
    sshfs you say...
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I use SFTP but it doesn't have the bells and whistles.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Dumb dx11 and lutris
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    sshfs allows you to mount networked storage on a machine as a FUSE filesystem. It's sftp under the hood but has all of the interactivity and usability you'd expect of a locally mounted filesystem. Downside, it can slow down a little bit with massive directories, but I haven't personally run into that yet
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    This perspective is all linux oriented fwiw. I believe there's an sshfs driver for Windows, but I haven't used it yet. and no idea for MacOS
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Ftp is life if not on wifi
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    yeah ftp and occasionally samba at the house.
  • impeeza @ impeeza:
    By the way under Windows you can use Total Commander to access so many sources as drives, SFTP, FTP, WebDav, Cloud shares, etc.
