- PS Vita Slim running OFW 3.36
- TN-C CFW with TN-Menu v1.01
- Numblast/Quotron US (for the exploit)
- OpenCMA (Open Content Manager Assistant) to transfer the files to/from the PS Vita to PC. It's basically a patch over the official Sony Content Manager Assistant.
PrerequisiteFirst, download the package that I compiled <<< here >>> (hosted on Google Drive).
Inside the package you'll find:
- TN-C: Files necessary to exploit Numblast US to launch TN-C
- TN-V11: Files necessary to exploit Numblast US to launch TN-V11
- _Tools: Sony CMA and OpenCMA to transfer files between your PS Vita and your PC
- Homebrew ISO: ISOs for your Vita to launch in TN-X environment. Included for now are PS Fliers (file manager for PSP) and VitaFTP (FTP access to your PS Vita)
- PSP OFW: Official firmware for PSP, only 6.60 is included. This is needed by TN-X to provide the PSP kernel.
It is necessary to install TN-C before attempting to install TN-V because TN-V does not allow creating directories (dir) under the \PSP\GAME folder. Frankly I have no idea why I couldn't since I can write files to any of the folders under that path just as fine. Add that to the fact that OFW3.36 does not have write access restriction to the said folder unlike OFW3.50 and above.

- On your PS Vita, open NUMBLAST game while holding the R button. Similar to TN-C, you'll see a flashing WHITE and GREEN light followed by TN-V Recovery Menu. Go to Advanced Configuration and install 660.PBP. Exit after done and you'll be greeted by the nostalgic PSP XMB.
Installing HomeBrew (emulators)As mentioned, TN-V11 does not allow creating directories under ms0:\PSP\GAME for unknown reason. There are quite a few of workarounds for this though:
- Switch to TN-C and open PSPFlier. Use that to create Directories manually. After that switch to TN-V and launch VitaFTP to upload files to the said directories.
- Compress the files as INSTALL.ZIP (all UPPERCASE, compression method = STORE) with the structure of
\PSP\GAME\YOURHOMEBREWTITLEand put it under
NPUG80320SAVEDATA. Use CMA to transfer the SAVEDATA into the Vita. Launch TN-C and it will automatically extract the said content into
