Access PlayStation Games on Non-Certified Devices

The last time we brought you news about PlayStation certification, it was to announce that it was coming to select HTC devices. Since then, modders and developers have been working on a way to get the same treatment on other devices as well. It turns out that there may be a nearly universal method to get PlayStation capabilities on rooted devices.

XDA Senior Member NOMIOMI released a mod that gives nearly everyone PlayStation goodness. While there were prior mods that existed, they didn’t work for many users, if at all. This one is a little different because there are actually quite a number of reported successes on a variety of Sony, Samsung, and ASUS devices.

Installing the proper files is pretty easy. You need to be rooted with a custom recovery. You have to download and install the PlayStation Mobile app, and install it like any other APK. Then, download the other required files and flash them in custom recovery. Finally, there are a few files that you need to move to various places using your favorite root-enabled file manager app. Once done, you should be able to use PlayStation Mobile just like any certified device.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
