The day’s finally with us, “TheFlow” has just released his big surprise (that he disclosed a few days ago)! With NoNpDrm, we can all say good-bye to issues with licensing which means that you could easily play your legally-owned games even if your Vita is deactivated (or got deactivated thanks to Sony..) and do much more.
What exactly is NoNpDrm?
In a nutshell, NoNpDrm is there to take out DRM protection on the PSVita which means that all license checks are disabled for PSVita games. It can do the following:
- Bypass expiration of PlayStation Plus and other timed licenses.
- Let you run trial versions of games as full versions. (This probably doesn’t apply to all DEMOs as they don’t include all the content of the full game).
- You can play your own purchased games on deactivated consoles.
- Game updates can be applied and used directly even if you don’t have an activated console with the game on that account.
- More features such as the ability to export PSVita content license keys as fake licenses.
- Undoubtedly, this will be used for piracy since it makes life easier when it comes to dumping games as some games had issues with dumping tools such as Vitamin and MaiDump. This shall not be discussed further in this article or on the /talk forums as Wololo is against piracy; this article is here to inform you about all aspects of the plugin!
While it can do lots, it’s important to keep in mind that it can’t do the following:
- No, this plugin won’t let you play games that require firmware 3.61 or higher!!
- PSP and PSX titles that are directly installed via PKGs are not supported BUT you can always use Adrenaline for those which will give you a superior gaming experience. Thanks to Adrenaline Bubble Booter VPK edition, you can even do bubbles for them in a pretty easy manner.
- It also doesn’t let you run applications without a valid or fake license file.
- Allow modifications to games so some plugins/mods may not work!
Undoubtedly, this plugin will be used for both legitimate and illegitimate purposes but how you use it is up to you. Make sure you read the README at least twice to grasp exactly how this plugin works! It is very important that you correctly understand how the plugin works before installing it! If you have any issues, report them to “TheFlow” on GitHub or Twitter in a civil and well-thought out manner.
Donation Tweet (you don’t have to donate to use this plugin but it’s a nice thing to donate a buck or two for TheFlow’s hard work!; Wololo doesn’t benefit in ANY way from this): https://twitter.com/theflow0/status/908626504380280833
