    You cannot perform an update using data transfer over a mobile network (3G).

    All open applications must be closed, and (User) must be selected.
    Connect the PS Vita system and the PS3 system using a USB cable.

    5. Question:The update file is called PSP2UPDAT.PUP Why is it named PSP not Vita?
    5. Answer:
    It's named that because the PS Vita is an upgraded PSP so thats why there is a PSP2 UPDAT.
    6. Question: How To Install VHBL – Vita Half-Byte Loader?
    6. Answer: The following are needed in order to install this Homebrew loader known as VHBL onto your PS Vita .
    1) VHBL – Half-Byte Loader · Wololo.net
    2) Game – Motorstorm Arctic Edge, also known as Motorstorm Raging Ice in Japan.
    3) Memory Card
    4) PS Vita – Fully Charge
    5) Open CMA
    Now that you have everything you need , Now lets go down below for this Tutorial instruction on how to install VHBL also known as Vita Half-Byte Loader onto your PlayStation Vita .
    It is *strongly* recommended that you turn of all wireless connections on your PS Vita, and that you use OpenCMA on your PC instead of the regular CMA. This is recommended because otherwise your console has a way to force you to upgrade the firmware even before you get a chance to use the exploit.
    Extract this HBL archive in your CMA PSP Savedata folder. It is a folder on your PC named PSSAVEDATA/[lots of random characters here]. If you don’t know where it is, check your settings in CMA
    Connect your PS Vita to the PC through the CMA, it should give you the possibility to copy the savedata from your PC to the Vita. If not, you probably extracted it in the wrong folder.
    (Note: You will also want to install some homebrew with a similar technique, read the section below)
    To run HBL, start the Motorstorm game, select “Load” in the save game menu, open the HBL save game, then go to “Wreckreation > Time Attack” and select “No”. At this point, HBL should start.

    7. Question: How to Install and Run Homebrews?
    7. Answer:
    Installing homebrews on the PSP was an easy task. On the Vita, until better solutions are provided, it’s quite a pain in the ass.
    The CMA will only let you copy savedata, and will not recursively browse folders.
    To have this, HBL comes with a tool that can extract archives with a specific structure.
    Packaging the homebrew for installation on the Vita:
    1) Download PSP homebrews from your favorite website
    2) Extract the homebrew somewhere on your hard drive, and with your favorite utility, zip it again with the *store* setting (no compression), in a file that you will name “install.zip”
    3) Take any PSP savedata (but not the one used for HBL!), and add the “install.zip” to that folder, in your PC CMA folder. so your PSP Savedata will look something like this:
    In folder PSSAVEDATA/1a2b3c4def5678/UCUS12345000/ (or something like this) you will have the following files:
    - ICON0.png
    - PIC1.png
    - DATA.bin
    - install.zip
    Download an example of packaged homebrew: Doom
    1) Run OpenCMA on your PC, and CMA on your Vita
    2) Copy the previously packaged SAVEDATA (see above) with your homebrew in “install.zip” on your Vita
    3) Run HBL (how to run HBL is explained in the previous section)
    4) Navigate with the HBL menu to the SAVEDATA folder, then go to the folder you just downloaded (in my example, UCUS12345000), and clikc cross or circle on it
    5) At this point, the HBL menu should ask you if you want to install the homebrew. select yes, and wait until HBL is done extracting your homebrew
    6) The homebrew is now installed, and you can run it by going to the GAME folder, if everything went well, a new subfolder with your homebrew has been created here, and you can run the homebrew.
