PlayStation Mobile was just released yesterday for a handful of ‘certified’ Android devices by which you could enjoy exclusive PlayStation game titles on your Android phones and tablets. Like we said, PlayStation Mobile app is only available for Sony devices and the HTC One series for now, but with this easy tutorial, you can now install the app on any rooted Android device.
As you continue reading below, we will guide you how to install PlayStation Mobile on any Android phone/tablet (rooted) with all the necessary steps and files needed. Just as a precaution and like always, we request you to backup all your data and personal apps before getting down with tutorial. Your phone needs to be rooted and have ClockworkMod recovery installed (if you are rooted, you must be already having it).
How to Install PlayStation Mobile on Any Rooted Android Device
Here is a quick tutorial on how you can get the PlayStation Mobile app running on your Android phone or tablet. A big thanks over to AndroidPolice who has managed to get the app running on any rooted Android device.
Follow the steps carefully and we recommend reading the entire tutorial once before actually performing it on your device.
- This tutorial requires your Android device to be rooted and should have ClockworkMod recovery installed.
- Make sure you have backup your data before doing anything silly to your phone from the recovery.
Step 1 – Download and install the PlayStation Mobile APK on your Android device.
Step 2 – Download PlayStation Mobile app helper files. This will help you to get the app running on your phone/tablet.
Step 3 – Now turn OFF your device and go to Recovery Mode (ClockworkMod or TWRP). Flash the helper files zip package. Reboot your phone now.
That’s it! PlayStation Mobile should be working fine now on your Android device. You will need to create a Sony Entertainment Network account first in order to use the app.
NOTE: This app could crash on your rooted Android phone/tablet because it is not certified by Sony and is obviously not tested either.
