    I installed a .vpk game to my Vita and on first run its says there is a game update available. Are these safe to download?

    I don't believe you'd be able to download the update anymore since PSN spoofing doesn't work. It'd likely ask you to update your Vita, which you shouldn't do.

    If the game has an update, most sites where you can "acquire" them will also post updates, use that instead.

    The update will not work with decrypted games. You have to wait for some guys show up and make a update VPK (vitamin) or patch (maidump)
