Hi

This is my first post here, so i hope it can be answered.
Is there a way for me to update from 3.57 to 3.60 offline, as when i use the CMA it comes up with 3.61.
I saw something on using Qcma but got totally lost.

Any hep would be awesome.

Many Thanks

It's possible and is fairly easy to do but I can't explain right now as I'm on my phone, in fact there are 2 or 3 ways to do this.

Have a read on wololo.net

Thanks for the replies so far,

I have downloaded and installed qcma and have the 3.60 pup file.

I have made the xml file. I have copied the part I edited below, but I cant seem to connect my vita, if I try to connect with usb it says i need to update content manager.
Also qcma doesnt have the part on the 'other' tab to point to the firmware. Am I missing something ridiculously obvious?

You have a old version if its not having a firmware to point to.

Latest QCMA https://codestation.github.io/qcma/

Use this guide, as its better imo, even though its roughly the same.

Yeah weirdly it was 3.60 when I answered originally. Thats why I mentioned or a mirror, I knew that it wouldn't last long....

Its still 3.60 on the UK site. 3.61 on the US version.

Thanks again, i seem to be making some progress.
I have Qcma latest version all installed correctly, how ever I cant manually change the protocol it only goes upto 3.30 0100019.
I also get the following error when trying to connect my vita via usb C3-14978-9.

So so close, iv hacked loads of consoles in the past and i wont let this beat me......yet lol
