    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.

    http://www.psx-place.com/threads/tutorial-how-to-manually-update-vita-pstv-zload-not-required.9337/



    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

    http://rom-news.org/psv, now if they could be playable?? and btw, they are real, if you check on usenet newsgroup servers. Might be on some torrent sites, yet not checked.
