      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.

      • For 6.61 Adrenaline-2 or higher, you must put Adrenaline files to 'ux0:adrenaline' instead of 'ux0:pspemu/adrenaline

    • - Network update -
      For 6.61 Adrenaline-4 or higher, you can use the 'System Update' in the XMB to update Adrenaline to the latest version.
      1) Choose 'System Update' in XMB, then click 'Update via Internet'.
      2) If a connection name does already exist, skip to 5).
      3) Otherwise select '[New Connection]', then 'Enter Manually', press RIGHT three times until you need to enter a connection name.
      4) Type any connection name and press RIGHT two times. You'll now see the message 'Press the X/O button to save settings'.
      5) Press X/O on any connection name.
      6) Follow the instructions to update Adrenaline.

    • - How to install Adrenaline -
      • Install any PSP game/demo onto your PS Vita (compatiblity for PS1 games as bubble will be added in the future).
      • Shutdown your PS Vita and visit
      • Launch molecularShell, press START and set 'Enable unsafe homebrews' to 'On'.
      • Reboot your PS Vita and then install VitaShell from molecularShell (
      • In VitaShell open FTP by pressing SELECT and copy the 'adrenaline' folder from the archive and paste it at 'ux0:'.
      • Download the 6.61 EBOOT.PBP (for 1000/2000/3000) from the Sony server (google it) and paste it at 'ux0:adrenaline/661.PBP'.
      • Copy 'ux0:tai/config.txt' to your PC and add the following lines:


      Example of config.txt:
      # You must reboot for changes to take place.
      # main is a special titleid for SceShell
      # this is for modifying the version string
      Note that you replace TITLEID by the titleid of your PSP game (the name of the folder where EBOOT.PBP is).​
      • Reboot your device and revisit the page I have mentioned above.
      • Launch the game for which you have added the plugin's line to config.txt.
      • Follow the instructions on screen.
      • Enjoy

    Some are having issues with the updater this is one reason why it's been updated. Yo can use the devs latest plugin to download via the system's browser if you have that installed as well.
