Hi everyone, 

i just got my vita about 4 weeks ago, after browsing around the internet, i managed to learn about installing games through vpks and maidump tool.

but the problem is that after installing, i also installed the patches and dlc for the game through maidump, even for main games that was installed through vpks in the first place

so i know that for games installed through maidump, you can install the patch and dlc through switching the loading mode in the maidump.

But what about the games installed through vpks? i tried to install the dlc through maidump and it doesn't load.

help and guidance needed. thanks!

I have fully deleted the other post you made since it's an exact copy of this one.

I'm not knowledgeable about Vita, but hopefully someone who is so will notice this thread.

In the mean time, GL HF.

Hey guys, 

After a while i found out a way to install dlcs for games which are installed via VPK.

hope after this anyone who gets stuck like me will no longer be confused about this.

1. Install the game through VPK like usual

2. install the update (patch) for the game NOT via Maidump, rather compress the update files into a VPK file and install it.

3. for the DLC, Create a folder called addcont_plain in Ux0: (if there isn't one, create it manually), and Remember, THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS 'addcont_mai'

3a. Put the DLC files in the addcont_plain folder, put it in a folder with the same folder name as the main vita game folder.

the path should look like this:

Ux0:/addcont_plain/[Game-ID]/(DLC folders here) 

hope this helps!

      I'm looking for DLC to Shin Musou Gundam JP NoNpDrm.

      Flow has been confirmed to have hacked the 3.67 FW via a kernal exploit.
      Please login or register to see this link.  
      Confirmation that 3.67 has already been hacked with taiHenkaku, though he said he wont release it until maybe the end of this or next year.

      He also states that the earliest release he can do is if he works on Enso hack for 3.65 however will still require you to be on 3.60 to install it and that porting Enso "will take some time".
      It seems that Flow is also waiting for the EoL for the Vita.

      Though we soon maybe able to finally play Vita games that require FW 3.61+ you should still NOT update your 3.60 Vita until we have a concrete way of hacking above the firmware.
      You can view/follow Flow's twitter to read more and be updated but please try not to disturb the guy since hes also busy with University:

      Would like to know if there are Users out there who can Post their Tables on the NoPayStation Site Database. There are quite a few Tables I would like to get, but I think others would as well. Also, any other Games that are Missing as well. 
      This will require a Chrome or FireFox Extension that will show all the Games and DLCs you have from the PSN Store (Requires Logging in). Also, next, after you have the List of Titles, DLCs, and everything else, along with the PKG Links, you will then need to get the License Keys by running each and every Game/DLC you have, then after all that is done, copy over the ux0:License Folder to your Computer, then run a Program that will Decrypt those Files in order to create zRIF Files containing all the proper Decryption Keys for said Games/DLCs. 
      Instructions on how to do these actions are detailed and correct on the NoPayStation Site in the "Database/ReadMe Tab" Page.
      I only ask, because I have tried MANY times and many different ways of Installing the MaiDump Version of TPA, which ended up not working correctly or at all. Only other way is for Users to Submit their Games/DLCs Info since NND is pretty much the more compatible way of doing things now.

      OK, so I downloaded a MaiDump Copy of Pinball Arcade, but it will not run for some reason. I set it to Option 5 for Booting, but nothing. It has the Game, DLC and Update Patch. Main Game Installed no problem along with DLC, but the Update does not work. I also tried putting the Updated Files in the Root of the Game Folder, it Installed no Problem along with the DLC, and I also set it to Option 5. Still Crashed.
      Question: Can I take the Mai DLC Content, and add them into my PSN Copy of the Game? I did follow the NoNpDRM Tutorial of replacing the work.bin and the Game still works perfectly.

      I have been reading up a little about modding game files, I know the code of the games, for setting things like resolution is in the eboot files, which in nondprm release is encrypted, I have read it can be decrypted, modified, but then NOT encrypted again, which means the mod will not work as the file will be ignored, why is this? maidumps are also decrypted, so I assume there is a key to decrypt, is it not the same key to encrypt them back?
