A software that transforms your PS Vita into a two-in-one device
What is Adrenaline?
Adrenaline is a software that modifies the official PSP Emulator using taiHEN CFW framework to make it run a PSP 6.61 custom firmware. Thanks to the power of taiHEN, Adrenaline can inject custom code into the IPL which allows unsigned code to run at boottime.
How to install
Download Adrenaline.vpk and install it using VitaShell. Launch Adrenaline and press X to download the 6.61 firmware. After finishing it will automatically terminate. Relaunch Adrenaline, this time it will go into pspemu mode. Follow the instructions on screen. How to update
If you have already been using Adrenaline and want to quickly update, simply open Adrenaline.vpk as zip file and copy all modules from sce_module to ux0:app/PSPEMUCFW/sce_module.
Getting rid of double launch bug
Adrenaline has been redesigned in 6.61 Adrenaline-6, so you'd need to launch Adrenaline twice everytime you reboot your device. To get rid of that, simply write this line to *KERNEL
*KERNEL ux0:app/PSPEMUCFW/sce_module/adrenaline_kernel.skprx Network update
For 6.61 Adrenaline-6.4 or higher, you can use the System Update in the XMB to update Adrenaline to the latest version.
Choose 'System Update' in XMB, then click Update via Internet. If a connection name does already exist, skip to step 5. Otherwise select [New Connection], then Enter Manually, press RIGHT three times until you need to enter a connection name. Type any connection name and press RIGHT two times. You'll now see the message Press the X/O button to save settings. Press X/O on any connection name. Follow the instructions to update Adrenaline. After updating and rebooting you can then delete the update file. Changelog

Create and organize your direct adrenaline bubbles.
This useful application allows you to make personalized bubbles with 'icon' and 'title' of your PSP content (HBS/PSX/ISO/CSO) quick and easy, using the 'LMAN' plugin, forgetting completely of the tedious and long manual method.
Adrenaline Bubbles Manager (ABM) purpose is to create the bubbles and necesary links to boot chosen psp iso/cso/pbp files with adrenaline v6.x through Lman's plugin adrbblbooter, all done within the ps vita, but, ABM does not change cpu speed, any issue related with that should be mentioned to Lman or the_flow.
Install Adrenaline v6.7 Make sure Adrenaline works correctly, to be able to boot Adrenaline opening it just once, it is highly recommended to add the following line below the kernel line in ur0:tai/config.txt. *KERNEL ux0:app/PSPEMUCFW/sce_module/adrenaline_kernel.skprx After taking care of step 1, then you can start using Adrenaline Bubbles Manager to create bubbles for your PSP/PSX content.
The developer Sam created a simple but effective application for our PSvita to quickly update Adrenaline to the latest version (currently version 6.7).
Install the VPK and launch it. Launch the application. Press X to install on UXO or O to install on URO.

Export and import your LiveArea layout Wipe database without loosing your LiveArea Refresh database Menu
Export and wipe: Export your current LA layout and let the system create a new app.db Export [no wipe]: Export your current LA layout Import: Apply your backed up LA settings to the system app.db Rebuild: Trigger a database update (No changes to your LA) Notes
What makes this app different is that it will NOT backup/restore your app.db! It will export/import your LiveArea settings instead,
so that you will not get stuck in a loop if your previous app.db was damaged,
and you will not loose your LA layout.
This is NOT a classic app.db backup/restore app.

How to use:
Download the Testkit/DEX PUP file for your firmware and put it @ ux0:/DEX.PUP Run the app and press X to install Its recommended to have reF00D (https://github.com/dots-tb/reF00D) installed, as f00d refuses to decrypt some testkit applications

Same as on 3.18.
A new "Debug Settings" entry is added..
Some notable features include user management and being able to skip game update checks.
also fake your consoles region :D
but heres a full list of changes if your interested ^-^
"Power Saving Settings > Enter Standby Mode Automatically"
- OFF - After 60 Minutes "Network > Wi-Fi Settings > Save Access Point Manually" - USB Ethernet (works with the usb ethernet adapters labeled "FOR TESTING KIT" (not the ones labeled "FOR DEVELOPMENT TOOL") "PlayStation Network" - Quick Sign Up (Only if no account assigned (aid 0x000000000000000) also only runs if you have reF00D installed) "Debug Settings > System Update" - Update Server URL - Show Pup List (OFF/ON) "Debug Settings > Network" - Network Emulation (this can be used to fake latency or 3G connection - u can also choose what interface (wifi/usb ethernet) - Fake 3G Interface (OFF/ON) - PSP Adhoc SSID prefix (Can be used in psp games that support adhoc mode to change the name of the psp i guess?) "Debug Settings > Network > NAT Traversal Information" - STUN Status - NAT Type - Mapped Address (your public IP here~) - Mapping Policy - Port Preservation - Delta "Debug Settings > PlayStation(TM)Network"
Account Local Settings:
- Account Name - NP Enviroment (IP Whitelisting needed to access anything other than "np" server, but others (such as the developers "sp-int" do exist)" - Fake Plus (Games will think your on a PS Plus Account) Global Settings: - NP Debug (SceNp functions will show notifications when called giving some infos) - In-Game Commerce Debug (Probably inapp purchases related.. Sets ps store prices to 999.99 for some reason) - Service ID (no idea) - Upgradable App Debug (Demos that are "upgradable" with the full game (like minecraft) this setting lets you force "Trial" or "Full") - Patch Test (Wether or not to check for title updates when connecting to PSN :D) - Trophy Setup Dialog Debug (OFF/Allways Fail, Intended for testing what happens if trophys are "ineligable") - Web API Rate Limit Threshold (Probably sp-int has no rate limits? and its for seeing how the game would react to them) "Debug Settings > PlayStation(TM)Network > TPPS Proxy"
- TPPS Proxy (Do not use/Use) (when set to "use") - Address - Port (8080 Default) - User Name - Password "Debug Settings > PlayStation(TM)Network > Account Selection" - Create New Account - (existing accounts below) "Debug Settings > PlayStation(TM)Network > Account Selection > Create New Account"

- Enable Uploader (on/off) (when ON) - Uploader URL - Auto Upload (on/off) "Debug Settings > Activation"
On real testkits, they cant run unsigned code unless its "activated" the activation is created by sony on siedev.net once a month or so~ dont really need to worry about this on cex2rex ..
- Activate by storage - Activate by conncting to PC - Show Expiry Date - Show Activation Key "Debug Settings > Game" - Debug Info (On/Off) - Fake No Memory Card (On/Off) - Fake Free Space (FS) (On/Off) - Fake Free Space (Quota)(On/Off) - Fake Contents Max (On/Off) - Fake Save Data Slot Broken (On/Off) - Fake Trophhy Earning (On/Off -Trophys dont sync when this is enabled - Init Safe Memory (On/Off) - Add-On Data (PS Vita) (Can be used to disable DLC contents!) "Debug Settings > Content Downloader"
- Same as in Henkaku Settings and IDU Settings. Thats all for debug settings (there is alot)
No PS Store icon by default (still able to get with "Enable PS Store" app https://bitbucket.org/SilicaAndPina/enablepsstore) No stupid "Tips" on reset telling you how to use the system for the 300th time No advertisements on the game selector screen. Show mode can be accessed (L + R + RIGHT on DPAD + START) Debug Utility added to game options menu More information shown on the Information Screen No longer checks AID or FW in id.dat (effectively, no memory card lock :D) "Debug Utility"
On the edit livearea bubbles screen, if you tap on a icon theres a new entry called "Debug Utility", Inside that you have the following options:
- Check (Runs the checker utility, might need reF00D to run properly. due to real F00D being a bitch) - Delete SaveData (Deletes savedata for the active user) - Delete ALL SaveData (Deletes savedata for all users) - Delete Patch (Deletes the Patch aka "Title Update" data) - Delete Addcont (Delete AddOn data (DLCs and such) - Generate Core File (Generates a coredump, same as if the game crashes.) "Show Mode"
which locks the ps and power button,
they acturaly still work if you press and hold them for long enough lol.
This probably intended for use at conventions and other places with game demos..
Key Combo (L + R + RIGHT on DPAD + START)
When you view a games information on the LiveArea:
- Title ID
- PS Vita Card RW Area (grw0 size)
- Upgradable App (using trail/full modes)
- Save Data Account
- Save Data Quota (max savefile size)
No "Playstation.com" icon on the LiveArea
Settings "Security" tab removed, infact trend micro is just removed
Most likely used by offical devs to see what there game would look like on the store..
It is possible to access the download list from here
Content Mannager Assistant has the option to "Copy SaveData Only"
also, the accountid used in CMA will allways be 0x000000000000000
which acturally means you can copy backups made on DEX to any other DEX console :D
Needs reF00D by dots_tb to run properly. since f00d refuses to decrypt it..
Checks a game to make sure it matches with Sony's TRC requirements (required for publishing to PSN)
MiniSettings For QA
A settings app that only has debug settings in it.. idk why its there either
Quick Sign Up
Needs reF00D by dots_tb to run properly. since f00d refuses to decrypt it..
Quickly sign up to playstation network, (sp-int only?, or maybe CID?)
Testkit firmwares that dont work ~
Cannot install testkit update .PUP files.
only retail ones still.
The testkit spoofer (testkit.skprx) doesnt run in safe mode.
the testkit safemode is slightly different though,
i think it has extra options under "Update System Software"?
Real testkits can downgrade to any other testkit firmware they want, with littearlly no restriction
though sony can (and has in the past) blocked you from downgrading past a certain point
Modoru pretty much offers this functionality anyway though.
Ive often wondered if on REX you could use the "USB Ethernet Adapter" for testkits.
it should work. but there incredibly hard to come by, so i havent been able to try it ..
Spoof CID (ConsoleID) on PSVITA
Could possibly be used to unban your console from PSN
add to your *KERNEL line in config.txt.
Simply edit ux0:CID.BIN this file is your CID as raw binary data
NP Modules store your CID in memory at bootup, so you will have to reboot if you want it to effect those.(Acturally just when you login to PSN)
Ever wondered what a console ban looks like?
set your cid to 00000001010400100C0AA7E2B9F68F7D (Contributed by u/Pahan55)
to find out
What if you dont want a console ban?
well you could try spoofing to 00000001010500100C04BDEF4B8F0A87,
Before anyone freaks out about me sharing someones CID. this was allready public
i extracted it from MLTActivator, at this current time of writing this it isnt banned!
If you dont see a CID.BIN after installing, try connecting to PSN or open VitaIDENT, the CID.BIN is only written after ksceSblAimgrGetConsoleId is called.
!!Works on 3.65!!

This is a GUI that allows you to use the Trinity Playstation Vita hack by TheOfficialFloW without much effort.
This is still very much a work in progress
If you do use this, PLEASE make a backup of your game folder first. It will automatically create a backup for you on your Desktop, but just in case, it never hurts to make a manual backup.
This is currently only for Windows. I have tested it with Windows 10 and the latest version of QCMA (v0.4.1)
To use it, you will need to have python 3.7.3 installed. It has been confirmed to not work on Python 3.5. Download the zip. Double click on either FinTrinity.py (command line) or GUI.py (user interface) and confirm the game is correct. If you're still having trouble, see this:
This plugin installs under *ALL
(*ALL is the only way to attach to the runtime)
when you run a PSM game, the screen will go RED.. While the screen is RED. the game files are being dumped
There is no progess indicaton (doing pretty much anything requires aditional DLL's that the game might not have)
however. once it is done, the screen will go GREEN at this point you can close out of the game.
and look in the ux0:/PSM/<TITLEID>/Temp folder and there will be a complete (Now decrypted) mirror of the Application/ folder.
Games decrypted can be run on PC using the PSM Simulator found in the PSM SDK, simply drag n drop app.exe onto psm.exe and play!
What this will enable:
1) PSM Game/Application Modding
2) Inspecting PSM Game/Application files
3) Running retail PSM Games/Applications in the PSM Simulator
4) Reverse Engineering of PSM Games/Applications
5) Probably more things too
6) Run Retail PSM Games in the PSM Developer App (LOL)
What this will NOT enable
1) Vita Game Emulation (no. j-just stop the simulator isnt even emulating anything)
2) Running PSM games you dont have a license for (dumper requires you to RUN the game in the first place!)
3) PSM Dev or PSM Unity applications.

A plug-in that can read the SD2VITA adapter placed in the port of the game cartridges.
h-encore, where h stands for hacks and homebrews, is the second public jailbreak for the PS Vita™ which supports the newest firmwares 3.65, 3.67 and 3.68. It allows you to make kernel- and user-modifications, change the clock speed, install plugins, run homebrews and much more.
A technical explanation of the h-encore exploit chain is available here.
Your device must be on firmware 3.65, 3.67 or 3.68. Firmware 3.69 and higher are not supported. If you're on a lower firmware, please decide carefully to what firmware you want to update, then search for a trustable guide on /r/vitahacks (if you know how and want to contribute, you can edit this readme and make a pull request, such that fellow readers have got an easier life). Remember that on firmware 3.65 you have got the possibility to install enso, the permanent hack, whereas on 3.67 and 3.68 you don't. If your device is a phat OLED model, you need a Memory Card in order to install. There's no need for a Memory Card on Slim/PS TV models, since they already provide an Internal Storage. Make sure you have got at least 270 MB of free space. Your device must be linked to any PSN account (it doesn't need to be activated though). Installation
Note that the following guide is for advanced users and a bit more complicated than the previous hack that only required you to visit a website. If you don't understand the guide below or how to use these tools, you should neither file an issue here nor annoy me on twitter, but rather seek help on /r/vitahacks (check for duplicated questions first!) or wait for an easy installer by somebody else.
Download h-encore and extract it on your computer.
Download and install qcma, psvimgtools and pkg2zip (check the releases section for the binaries).
If you don't know where to put psvimgtools and pkg2zip binaries, just put them in the h-encore folder.
Download the vulnerable DRM-free demo of bitter smile (yes, that's the user entry point).
Extract the demo using this command in terminal/cmd:
pkg2zip -x PATH_OF_PKG This will output the files to app/PCSG90096.
Copy the contents of the output app/PCSG90096 to the folder h-encore/app/ux0_temp_game_PCSG90096_app_PCSG90096(such that the files eboot.bin and VITA_PATH.TXT are within the same folder).
Copy the license file app/PCSG90096/sce_sys/package/temp.bin to the folder
h-encore/license/ux0_temp_game_PCSG90096_license_app_PCSG90096 and rename the just pasted file temp.bin to 6488b73b912a753a492e2714e9b38bc7.rif. Be careful with the file extension, it should not be .rif.bin. Again, this file should be in the same folder as VITA_PATH.TXT.
Start qcma and within the qcma settings set the option Use this version for updates to FW 0.00 (Always up-to-date)to spoof the System Software check.
Launch Content Manager on your PS Vita and connect it to your computer, where you then need to select PC -> PS Vita System, and after that you select Applications. If you see an error message about System Software, you should simply reboot your device to solve it (if this doesn't solve, then put your device into airplane mode and reboot). If this does still not work, then alternatively set DNS to 188.8.131.52 to block updates. This should create a folder at PS Vita/APP/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx on your computer (see qcma settings where this folder is), where the folder xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx represents the AID (account ID that is 16 characters long) that you need to insert here. If the AID is valid, it will yield a key that you can now use to encrypt the demo.
Change directory to the h-encore folder in terminal/cmd and use the key to encrypt all folders using (make sure you don't confuse the key with the AID, the key is 64 characters long!):
psvimg-create -n app -K YOUR_KEY app PCSG90096/app psvimg-create -n appmeta -K YOUR_KEY appmeta PCSG90096/appmeta psvimg-create -n license -K YOUR_KEY license PCSG90096/license psvimg-create -n savedata -K YOUR_KEY savedata PCSG90096/savedata The folder h-encore/PCSG90096 should then contain sce_sys and all 4 folders from above, and within these folders you should find files called X.psvimg and X.psvmd, where X has the same name as the folder. Backup this folder, since if everything has been done correctly, you don't need to redo all the steps to install it onto another device with the same PSN account.
Copy the folder h-encore/PCSG90096 to PS Vita/APP/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/PCSG90096 and refresh the database under qcma settings.
The h-encore bubble with a size of around 243 MB should now appear in the Content Manager and that's what you finally need to transfer to your PS Vita. If the size does not match or you get the error C2-12858-4, then it's because you did not do it correctly! Please re-read the instructions more carefully then. If you get the error You can only copy applications that your account is the owner of, then it's because you have used an AID that is not of your account, go back to step 8.
Launch h-encore to exploit your device (if a message about trophies appears, simply click yes). The screen should first flash white, then purple, and finally open a menu called h-encore bootstrap menu where you can download VitaShelland install HENkaku. If it prompts the error Cannot start this application. C0-11136-2, then it's because you did not do step 6. correctly.
Enjoy. Note that you have to relaunch the exploit everytime you reboot or shutdown your device. Of course if you only put your device into standby mode, you don't need to relaunch.
Getting rid of the trophy warning
Since the savedata that I provided is not linked to your account id, launching h-encore would eventually show a warning message about trophies. To get rid of that you must do this on your PS Vita:
Enable Unsafe Homebrews under HENkaku Settings in the Settings application to grant VitaShell full permission. Launch VitaShell and navigate to ux0:user/00/savedata/. Press triangle on the folder PCSG90096 and select Open decrypted (you should NOT see the folder sce_pfs within this folder when opened decrypted). Copy system.dat out of the folder and remove the folder ux0:user/00/savedata/PCSG90096. Close VitaShell and launch h-encore (this will now not trigger the exploit anymore, since we've removed the savedata). Close the game after you see the first screen and return back to VitaShell. A fresh folder of PCSG90096 at ux0:user/00/savedata should have been created. Copy system.dat back to ux0:user/00/savedata/PCSG90096/system.dat where you need to open the PCSG90096 using Open decrypted (you should NOT see the folder sce_pfs within this folder when opened decrypted). Now if you launch h-encore you should not see the trophy warning anymore and exploiting your device is therefore even faster. FAQ
"When I launch h-encore, it stays at a white screen." - Due to the nature of the kernel exploit, this can sometimes happen. If it stays white for more than 5 seconds, you can simply close the application which will result in a crash and your device will be rebooted or shutdown after 10 seconds. If it doesn't, hold the power button down for over 30 seconds to force a shutdown. Then try the exploit again. The success rate of the kernel exploit should be at 80%. If I find time I will eventually try to improve the success rate. "When I launch h-encore, it flashes white quickly and then crashes." - Again, this is due to how the kernel exploit works. "I get a C2-12828-1 error when launching h-encore" - This does sometimes (but very rarely) happen. Just retry the exploit. "When I launch h-encore, it launches the bitter smile demo instead." - Your savedata is either corrupted or not installed correctly, please follow the installation guide above to reinstall it. "I have installed a bad plugin and launching h-encore doesn't work anymore, what should I do?" - You can either reset taiHEN config.txt or skip plugins loading by holding the L trigger while exiting the h-encore bootstrap menu. HENkaku Settings
"I don't see all folders in VitaShell." - Launch the Settings application and select HENkaku Settings, then select Enable unsafe homebrews. This will grant you full permission in VitaShell. "I can't find the HENkaku Settings." - Launch the exploit and reset taiHEN config.txt and reinstall HENkaku. enso/permanent hack
"Can I install enso on 3.67 or 3.68?" - Not yet, since molecule's bootloader exploit has been patched there. "Can I install enso on 3.65?" - Yes, you can use h-encore to hack your device and then install the permanent hack using this. Compatibility
"Are Adrenaline/NoNpDrm/Download Enabler supported on 3.65/3.67/3.68?" - Yes, check them in my repositories. "Can I use SD2VITA using this hack?" - Yes, I have made a pull request on gamecard-microsd that fixed the freeze when using it without enso. If you're using an other plugin and it freezes on exitting h-encore bootstrap menu, then there's the trick where you can simply press the PS Button and return back to finish the boot process. "Can I use psvsd using this hack?" - Yes, people confirmed that it is working finely. "Does this work, does that work? Is this compatible, is that compatible?" - I don't know, and it is not my task to update these tools for you, so don't dare and file an issue here. General
"Can I switch the PSN account after having h-encore installed?" - Yes, since the demo is DRM-free it does not depend on your account. "Are there any risks involved in using h-encore?" - No, since it does not modify the OS, but only insert temporary patches into the system. "Can I install it without USB connection?" - You can also connect your PS Vita with your computer using Wi-Fi (there's an option in the Content Manager). Donation

HENkaku Ensō is the evolution of the HENkaku jailbreak that opened the PS Vita and PSTV to a new universe of customization and user created content. Install it once and your Vita will be permanently hacked--no need to apply it after each reboot. Just enable HENkaku, install the following vpk, launch it, and follow the on-screen instructions.
Does this work with firmware 3.61/3.63/3.65?
How do I use this "vpk"?
You need to install HENkaku first. Then open up molecularShell and press "Start" to enable the FTP server. Then connect using a FTP client and copy the vpk to "ux0:/data". On your Vita, browse to "ux0:/data" and select the vpk to install it. Then you should have a new bubble in LiveArea which you can launch to install ensō.
Will this harm my Vita?
The short answer is "not likely." The long answer is that it does make permanent modifications to your system so there's always the chance that something goes wrong. However, we had months of testing done by over a hundred testers without any major problem so we are fairly confident in the code. Nevertheless, we will not provide any warranty if something wrong does happen so if you do not wish to take the risk, we recommend using the HENkaku offline installer as a risk-free alternative.
How do I uninstall ensō?
First, note that you can "deactivate" ensō without uninstalling it by deleting "ur0:tai/boot_config.txt". You can "reactivate" it again by opening the ensō installer and using the Square option to fix the boot config. Otherwise, you can fully uninstall ensō with the Triangle option. Note that if you no longer wish to use HENkaku, you should clean up any installed homebrew before uninstalling ensō.
Help! I installed a bad taiHEN plugin and my Vita doesn't boot anymore!
You can disable taiHEN plugin loading by holding L during boot.
Help! I messed up something else and my Vita doesn't boot anymore!
You can reset all Vita settings (including non-hack related ones) from safe mode by selecting "Restore the PS Vita System". You can also enter safe mode by disconnecting and reconnecting the battery during a failed boot loop. Note this does not uninstall ensō but keeps it inactive. To reactivate it, you must run the ensō installer and use the Square option to fix the boot config.
To install the exploit (You need internet connection to install the exploit, but not to run it):
First, install and activate HENkaku Install the vpk Make sure unsafe homebrew is allowed (molecularShell->press Start button->Enable unsafe homebrew->on) Launch offlineInstaller bubble Follow the instructions: press CROSS to install NOTE: Do not delete the bubble after the exploit is installed. You should redo the installation when you have internet access to ensure that you get the latest version of HENkaku.
To run the exploit:
Reboot your PS Vita Disable Wi-Fi Open Email app. If at some point it asks you to enable wifi, press "No". If you have wifi switched on, the message list will not load. If you have multiple email accounts, select "HENkaku Offline" Select "Inbox", then click on the first email Wait about 10-20 seconds. You might get a "Please wait" screen multiple times. You might also get an "An error has occurred" screen multiple times. If you get any of these more than five times in a row, reboot your Vita and try again. You should see the same screen as with online installation (black screen with text and molecule logo) Uninstalling
To uninstall the exploit:
Launch offlineInstaller Press CIRCLE to uninstall
