Hi,

Just to verify.
I have my eye on a few vitas with a lower firmware.
However the sellers tell me that if they want to reset it, the vita wants to update to 3.61 and ask me how to prevent that (as i am a noob on vita, I don't Know)

Well after Googling I must admit I could not find a definitive answer either.

So... How can you buy a 2nd hand lower firmware vita and give the seller the opportunity to delete his personal data/account.
And how can I as a buyer activate it without Sony forcing me to update

After the reset just skip the PSN part.

Yes I have PSN => Use Later => unactivated Vita with x.xx firmware => Update manualy to 3.60 (unless its below 3.18 for tn-v and tn-x) => Install Henkaku an activate the vita.

Groet, Denny

1. Make sure wifi is off
2. Reset device
3. tell him you will do the initial setup of the device yourself, since after a reset it should ask to be set up again
4. Do as Denny64 said on henkaku

I'm not 100% about part 3, but my experience with all other playstation devices tell me that.

Pretty much avoid setting up psn access

    oh dear. making codes for nes is kinda stressful. i'm trying to think of cool ideas that haven't been thought of before. it's hard to be original, and i don't wanna make codes that already exist!
  • GameGenieLabs @ GameGenieLabs:
    I may make a post asking for code ideas, and hopefully that would make others happy :)

    Anywho, I've been using my modded Wii to play a few games here and there, and finally installed a custom Wii theme thanks to Larsenv helping me in a call (I have a family edition, and I don't wanna brick the nand since I can't restore it) Went with the basic "Black" Theme, since I'm a huge fan of dark themes, and it's less of an eyesore at night

    Larsen also helped me with my Dazzle setup, since the drivers for my model weren't online. I also helped dump that DVD with it, since I had a DVD drive.
