    Hello, I have imported a new slim Vita from Japan. It's on 3.63. Is this guide still ok to use, or is there a btter one?

    https://vita.hacks.guide/updating-firmware-(ps-vita-3.65-and-3.68)

    When I connect the Vita to my windows laptopn via usb it says I can't connect to PC, it then asks if I have CMA installed on my PC, is this somethign that I need to install before it will connect via usb? If so is it better to install QCMA instead?

    Thank you!

    that guide is fine

    CMA is Sony's content manager assistant, don't bother with it

    just install and use QCMA instead

    [Your device must already run HENkaku/h-encore on firmwares 3.60-3.68 in order to use this software. ]

    So, how do I run HENkaku/h-encore?

    Hey guys! I bricked my ps vita console for a long time, when updating to qcma, the firmware reaches 7% and gives an error c3-12027-3, only the last item is available in safe mode (Update), my console does not see CMA and openCMA, that is, it connects gives an error that CMA is not found, what should I do?

    guys, I think I goofed.
    I had 3.65 henkaku + enso for some time and haven’t paid vita scene any attention, could run 3.65+ games (p5&p3 dancing games for ex.) comfortably
    but then for some reason I decided to check vita scene and go for h encore. and downloaded exploit through qcma, installed henkaku through h encore bubble... (I know, I’m a genius)
    I noticed my homebrew bubbles took longer to open, stuck on that round bubble thing for quite some time, or even better yet: vita wouldn’t react to button commands so I had to reboot console. I got the idea: hey, let’s do this enso thing! so I did...
    now after I rebooted the console, in settings it no longer has henkaku menu, and on system information it says 3.67. but homebrews like vitashell work.
    and here’s the problem: when I click persona dancing games, it says I need to update to 3.68 and that I’m now on 3.67. so this is when i started to panic. help??
    again, I have compatibility packs, refood and repatch stuff to make the games work, and it DID work, until I goofed installing h encore that I clearly didn’t need.

    Well, why the hell did you update? Roll back to 3.65.
