    hello everyone,
    my friend used modoru on 3.72 vita and gets soft bricked. When he tries to reinstall fw via safe mode with qcma, he gets an error about "The latest system software is already installed" message. So is there any idea about which part is wrong? or can someone gives me a step by step guide? so we can see our mistake.
    thanks for all helps...

    You must edit the psp2updat.xml (or whatever) version.
    If your real version is 3.72, write 3.72 or 3.73 if the it does not work (it will not install a 3.73 fw, it is just a string to fool the vita)

    Open the xml file with a text editor and replace all fw versions

    u dont need to do that to fix your vita.
    Follow this guide, im sure 100% it work^^
    1. Delete content manager asisstant on ur window (if u installed it).
    2. Install QCMA, download fw 3.72, attract it and copy biggest file size to C:/user/documents/PSV updates (if u dont have it, creat one new folder with name PSV updates
    3. open settings in qcma, select Other tab, tick Offline mode, tick Ignore local file....., at CMA protocol selection = latest, Use this version for update =custom, Custom ps vita version = 03.720.000
    4. reboot ur vita to recovery mode
    5. select option 5 "....update...." (sorry, i dont remember what it say)
    6. select Connect to pc
    ok, reinstall fw to ur vita, and its alive.

    It works until I actually have to update, it says "an error has occurred (C3-3822-5)" Am I doing something wrong?
