    First of all I would like to thank all the readers of this Guide/Tutorial. I did not make any of these tools and would like to credit:

    Mr.Gas & Major_Tom for the writer.eml file
    qwikrazor87 for the TN-V11 exploit
    Total_Noob for the TNX exploit

    This guide is written for firmware version 3.18, for 3.3x and 3.5x I have no extra information on how to make TN-V11 / TNX work.

    Since the release of Henkaku 3.60 native exploit I entered the modding scene and bought my first Vita PCH-1104. I'm still enjoying all the Homebrew that is being released for Henkaku, but I felt like I was missing something: Accurate PSP en PSX emulation. Since I don't like to wait when TN-V is ever (if ever) going to be released, I searched for another Vita. Lucky me found a 3.01 PCH-1104 model and started installing TN-V. It took me hour to understand the process and install TN-V successfully, so I'm hoping I can make the process faster for anyone who has the same problems as I did.

    Requirements:
    PS3 with PSN acces in order to get the exploit games
    PSVita with Firmware =<3.18 and 4GB+ Memory card
    USB cable
    QMCA 0.3.12+
    Paypal or PSNCard with credit to buy exploit game(s)

    Step 1: Download this All in One package on your PC: MEGA

    Step 2: Click on Settings => System => System Information => Check your System Software version: =< 3.18 you're good to go. If the firmware is below 3.18 go here

    Step 3 till Step 5 is optional for people that either bought a second handed console and want to link their own psn. Or for people that have the exploit game on another PSN account than they are currently logged in.

    Step 3: Click on Settings => Format => Restore the PS Vita System

    Step 4: If it askes to deactivate the system click NO => Close all apps YES => Format Memorycard YES

    Step 5: After reboot select language => Timezone => Time => Yes I've PSN => Connect to WiFi => Log in with PSN => Wait for intro to end

    Step 6: Click on Settings => Select Flight Mode => Reboot console (if you won't do this step, QMCA will ask you to update System Software)

    Step 7: Open QMCA on the PC => Settings => CMA Protocol Selection MANUAL => CMA Protocol Version FW 3.10

    Step 10: Purchase Tekken 2 for TNX exploit and Patapon 2 for TN-V (you are also able to use any other PSP game but this is the on being used in this tutorial) TIP: Search on EU PSN for Ape Quest Starter Pack. This is a free DEMO and you should be able to use this game also for TN-V11.

    Step 11: After the PS3 has downloaded the games leave them inside of the bubble and connect the PS Vita

    Step 12: Now press OK and select PS3 => USB you should be inside of the PS3 now

    Step 19: Open E-mail again and re-setup the account

    Step 20: Create email on PC and give Title name (without the space between : and p) ux0: pspemu/PSP/GAME/UCES01177/PBOOT.PBP (UCES01177 is Patapon 2) don't type anything else and attach the #0 file
    2016-09-09-183832.

    Step 21: Open attachment (Should be a Photo and not a question mark, if so return to Step 17) on Vita and you should see the "Could display this image" again do NOT press the OK button. Close the E-mail app (PS button => Swipe) and shut down the PS Vita

    Step 22: Start the Vita with R-Trigger, PS button and POWER button and hold it for 3 sec. You should enter the Safe Mode.

    Step 23: Rebuild the database and wait 3 min
    20160909_174310 (1024x576).

    Step 24: After the Vita has been powered on the Patapon 2 bubble should now be a TN-V bubble, Click it and press start
    2016-09-09-184059.

    Step 25: After the TN-V recovery menu has been started go to advanced and click Install 6.60 files. After the process you should be able to boot into PSP XMB.
