The guy who sells it would like to format it beforehand, but it seems he can't do that without updating to 3.61. Is there anything he can do ?
I'm new to the VitaTV hacking scene, so please excuse me if it has already been answered somewhere else ; I'm still a bit confused... (Maybe "AccountSwitcher" would be useful ? Or even VitaUpdateBlocker, but i'd like to be sure...)

Thanks !

It seems weird to me that you wouldn't be able to format without an internet connection.
Then again, I've never had to format my vita.

You can still do a system format without having to de-activate the system (that is the part that requires updating to latest firmware). You just have to decline de-activating and you should still be able to follow the steps from there.

He can turn off the vita, boot it into safe mode and there is an option to restore the vita (4th).

This will wipe his account from the system without connecting to PSN ;)

Even tho this is shown in a vita. I believe this works on PS TV too.

Yes hold the power power button for 30 seconds on the pstv when it's off

This will bring up that safe mode menu above and do a restore with Internet off

    Most kids don't want to work nowdays, they want everything handed to them. And to think you're poor just cause you don't own a Switch is ridiculous.

    being poor and healthy is the worst case scenario because you have the longest amount of time to "enjoy" being poor

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.
