NoPayStation is an app designed for users to download titles, DLCs, updates, and themes on their PC or Mac and then transferred over to the PS Vita. These downloads are from users who actually brought the downloads and uploaded it to NoPayStation for everyone's enjoyment. This provides a safe and quick method to obtain what you are looking for. In order to use NoPayStation, users must have certain plugins already installed. Please refer to the "Already Installed" section for the prerequisites needed before you can use NoPayStation.

Step 3: Continue to Provide Links for NoPayStation.

Copy the following links
1. Browse to where you want the download files to be stored at.
2. Browse to where you stored the pkg2zip.exe file
3. Paste -x {pkgFile} "{zRifKey}"
4. Paste E5E278AA1EE34082A088279C83F9BBC806821C52F2AB5D2B4ABD995450355114
5. Paste https://gitlab.com/nopaystation_repos/nps_compati_packs/raw/master/entries.txt
6. Paste https://gitlab.com/nopaystation_repos/nps_compati_packs/raw/master/entries_patch.txt

Step 4: Close NoPayStation and Rerun.

Close the options page and exit out of the NPS browser. Then run it again.

 

Step 5: Download Title/DLCs/Themes.

    • Browse for the file you want, and you can filter it just to Vita for an easier search.
    • Right click on the file you want and click on the Download and Unpack. Do the same for any DLCs.

 

Step 6: Enable Hidden Folders

  • You need to enable View Hidden folders to see everything in your memory card.
  • Go to View / Options / Change folder and search options / View / and select "Show hidden files, folders, and drives."
  • Make sure to uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).
  • Click Ok.

 

Step 7: Connect PS Vita to the PC.

Turn on your Vita and launch VitaShell. Press SELECT to connect to your PC through USB.

 

Step 8: Transfer File to Memory Card

  • Your downloaded file will either contain an App folder or a folder that starts with a letter follow by numbers.
  • In this example there is an app folder and inside is PCSE00651.
  • You should see an app folder on your memory card folder.
  • Copy the PCSE00651 folder and paste it into the App folder.
  • Wait for the files to finish transferring.

 

Step 8.5: Transfer DLCs or Patches.

  • If your file contains other folders such as addcont (DLC), license, patch, or app then you will need to transfer those over to the same corresponding folders on your memory card.
    • Note: If the folders are not on your memory card, then create them.
  • In the diagram above, each folder will contain the ID (PCSA00147), except for license.
  • You need to move each folder in the red square to the same folder in your memory card.
    • Ex: Move the PCSA00147 folder in the app folder to the app folder in your memory card.

 

Step 9: Have VitaShell Install the File.

  • Press triangle and click on Refresh LiveArea and press X to continue.
  • The screen should say “Refreshed 1 items.”

Note: If you are transferring multiple files, you only need to refresh once. In that case the screen should say “Refreshed X items” where X is the number of files you transferred.

 

Step 10: Go Back out to the Home Screen.

  • Go back to the home screen and scroll all the way down.
  • There should now be a bouncing bubble.

  1. Hi,

    I ma stuck on step 9 where no refresh on Vita. I am using mac and I did everything what you said on guide. I am getting confused how can it not show game.

    Vita 3.60 Henkaku Enso
    Nonpdrm already installed – ur0:tai
    Adreanline already installed – ux0
    Osyscall6 already installed – ur0:tai
    PKGj already installed – ux0

    I put game on ux0:app as I wanna test if it work. Ever

    Where it possible gone wrong?

    1. Looks like you have a tai folder in both ur0 and ux0, you want to only have it in one folder. So pick which folder you want it in, (ur0 is the prefer one), change the config.txt to refer to that folder (again ux0 or ur0) and then delete the tai folder in whichever folder you are not using (preferably delete the ux0 folder and put everything in ur0:tai).

      1. Yes, I’ve deleted tai folder from ux0.

        I even go on Reddit help and it seem no one have a clue how to fix it. Was I doing wrong guide?

        1. It is probably the config.txt file in your ur0 tai folder. Make sure everything is spelled correctly and is referring to ur0, you can post it in your comment if you want.

  2. Hi,

    I have a little problem here : I try to do exactly what you say, and three things : I’ve deleted two games in my appdata, is it possible to delete them in my “downloaded” library in nopaystation ? I have a problem to download two versions of the same game (US and EUR for exemple) … And finally, a lot of my DLC does not work : I’ve download a lot of minecraft DLC and I don’t have the content in-game …

    Anyway thanks a lot for your work !!!!

    1. You really only need one version of a game, and the DLC will only work for the specific region. So make sure the minecraft DLC you downloaded is for the US or European one, also make sure your game is updated, some DLCs require an updated game.

  3. Hello, when im doing the live area refresh my games are not coming up. It is saying 0 items…It is going onto my Vita, but it is not recognizing it. Have you got any suggestions?

  4. Hello
    I copied the file into the app folder on the vita. But when i reset the live area nothing changes. I also cant install the game. there is nowhere an install button.
    Could you please tell me what i am doing wrong?

    1. Could be how you set up your config.txt, is it in the correct tai folder. Where do you have your tai folder and is your config.txt correctly referring to it? You can post your config.txt file if you want.

  5. A problem I’ve run up against, I don’t have an app folder on my vita. it’s a 1001 model using a vita 8gb card.

    These are the folders I have.
    calendar
    data
    mms
    nonpdrm
    ptmp
    Vitashell
    modoru.vpk

    any reason why there wouldn’t be an app folder? All of the steps were done successfully when I brewed it.

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    1. Could be the very first time you hacked your Vita, if anything you can create an App folder and then put the files in there.

    1. Either one will work but if you want more cheap memory then installing SD2Vita is the way to go.

  6. Hey! I’ve been having an issue with getting the VitaShell to refresh the LiveArea such that it actually refreshes the games I’ve put onto the Vita. Working off of a PS Vita with a PSV card installed. I was able to go from Firmware 3.73 to 3.65 using Modoru and installed Enso successfully. I’ve got nonpdrm.skprx and 0syscall6.skprx installed in the ur0:tai/ folder and have both of them in the config.txt under *Kernel. I’ve been connecting to the Vita through the Vitashell using the Memory Card and USB settings and have been placing the game files in the ux0:app/ folder as you’ve indicated and I can see the folders for the games in there, but every time I hit refresh LiveArea it says its refreshed 0 items. I’ve tried rebooting and shutting on/off the Vita both through Vita shell and manually after messing with the config.txt and after loading the game folders onto the Vita and can’t seem to get anything to work. Any advice for help with troubleshooting or any steps I may have missed?

    1. Could be the spelling in your config.txt in your tai folder. If you post it here, I can take a look for any errors.

  7. I am having a problem with step 5. I click on Download and Unpack. The files gets downloaded successfully, but it is in PKG format. I am using PKG2ZIP.exe in the “any pkg to dec tool”.

    1. You didnt set the path to the unpacker exe that you need to extract the data from pkg files.

      Start fresh from step 2.

  8. I only did this because I own about 30 UMD’s and I wanted to continue play those games on my Vita. So far every PSP download is in an unusable file type and is not recognized. Need some help.

  9. Just Wanted to double-check if anybody was having issues with NoPayStation. it was working perfectly on my PC when i installed it a few months ago but now, whenever i open the browser, games won’t show up. Any tips would be appreciated 🙂
