    Vita hacking legend Yifan Lu, also known as Yufi hacker dude™, today wrote up a tutorial over at vitasdk.org about how to Remote Play with your Henkaku-enabled 3.60 Vita without signing in to your PSN account. It even works with a not activated Vita. Basically the process involves hex-editing a cache file the Remote Play app uses to verify your PSN account, with your PSN online ID. While this process may be a bit complicated, Yifan Lu asks Vita developers to build a homebrew app for this. Head over to vitasdk for the tutorial.

    Update

    The user 'theorywrong' from vitasdk just released a homebrew application for this. You can get it here.

    Just done this and for the first time I'm able to experience Remote Play!

    Just some notes HxD is a free hex editor for Windows and I was able to create the file and add my username very easily without any need for converters.

    The username is your psn name. For example mine is AllahMuhallah it's not your email address that you need to use.

    I had the direct connect setting on my PS4 on.

    I don't actually have any wi-fi access point set up on my Vita. So no danger of it updating.

    Totally works. Frame rate seems kind of low next to the PS4's television output, but my internet isn't fantastic so there you go.

    You can set the framerate to 60 fps in the settings. It's 30 fps by default.

    I got someone who is having issues creating the np directory in ur0:/user/00/, getting a generic error. They fail when doing it over FTP as well. Any idea what might be going on? There was a recent system restore, if that helps.

    Is unsafe homebrew mode enabled in Molecular shell or Vita Shell?

    Local. Internet would require PSN I do believe. Could be wrong.

    Just follow the linked guide to inject the cache file. If you get it working, you can play locally or over the internet. At that point, PSN is irrelevant on your Vita.

    Gambia, The
    My Vita is on 3.60 and already activated and my PS4 Pro is still on 3.70 (still waiting for hacks), can I enable remote play even if my PS4 Pro is not on the latest firmware?
