Sony PlayStation mobile is a new App Store by Sony where you can find latest and the best Playstation certified games. However, its a far cry for most android users since its only compatible with Sony XPERIA, Play and HTC One series devices.
Don’t worry, theres a workaround already in place. You can Install and Run Sony PlayStation Mobile on any rooted Android device: Tablet or Phone.
If you have root on your phone or tablet, getting the PSM (PlayStation Mobile) apk to work is a matter of pushing a few files it relies on to your /system directory and rebooting. Original credit goes to XxXPachaXxX . This hack essentially is built on his work and and repacked it into a flashable zip for use with the PSM.
After successfully following the instructions for installation, you will be able to download and install both Free & Paid games.
How to Install, Run PlayStation Mobile PSM on Any Android
- Rooted Android phone/tablet
- Custom recovery like CWM (optional)
Step 2. Immediately after install, app would fail with an error, but thats perfectly normal.
Step 3. Flash the zip from custom recovery, like CWM or TWRP. The hack relies on Busybox, which is preinstalled on rooted ROMs. If you don’t have busyBox already, you can get it from Play Store.
Alternatively: If you’re rooted but don’t have custom Recovery installed:
1. Unzip the zip file
2. Copy playcertetcpermissionscom.playstation.playstationc ertified.xml to /system/etc/permissions/ on your device.
3. Copy playcertframeworkcom.playstation.playstationcertif ied.jar to /system/framework/ on your device.
4. Set the permissions on com.playstation.playstationcertified.jar to 644 (read/write, read, read) using your favorite file manager or command line. & Reboot.
Step 4. Now run the Sony Playstation Mobile, and it would work like a charm.
