    Transfer the update files to the install location within ux0:app/* accepting overwrite of all/any files

    is it normal for the game to still say there is an update after this?

    Found A TEMPORARY Solution To The Problem!
    1. Install game vpk
    2. Copy update zip contents to the game folder
    3. Make a GameTitleIDfolder in ux0:Patch/ folder in vitashell (ex: ux0:Patch/PCSE00491)
    4. Copy the update zip contents to the new folder you just created in ux0:Patch/
    5. Start the game, now it should not say to update your game and should detect the latest version :D

    By the way, if anyone needs minecraft dumped vpk with version 1.34 update (US - DIGITAL), i can upload =))

    it worked for me, and if it still shows to update, it doesn;t matter, you have the update anyways! :)

    Im confused by your statement. once you have the update folder not the zip you have to copy it with filezilla so the update files are located wherever you copy them to

    I mean, one we click the orange button on the vita's live area, the vita will download the latest update, and it will be there waiting until you run the appropriate game to install the update. Where would be the pending downloaded files located?

    first go to the directory ux0:/bgdl/t/numbers/, then chose the first one that have the update folder inside in the format folder PXXXXXXX, inside of the folder PXXXXXXX there will be another folder called 0000 and inside of that one the update is there , take all the data inside the folder 000000 and put it on the folder PXXXXXXX :D

    -----------------------------------------------------------------


    Bro wait..... this method doesn't seem to work on some games, and for few others it doesn't work, and also by this method the game updates, but it still shows that updates are available.
    But by the new method below, that error is gone, and it is easier too :)
    So you should rather follow this method:

    Is it intentional that you copy the update.zip contents twice?

    If so, I noticed that the update contains some files/directories that resemble ones found in the normal directory (such as eboot.bin and sce_module) and some that have names like patch_v*. Would it make sense to put the patch_ files in the Patch directory and the other files in the main directory?

    Question, is it possible to download an update, dump it with henkaku and then install it with the method? I am searching for the update for Digimon Cyber Sleuth, but cannot find it and of course I get an error after trying to install it via psn, so I was wondering if when you download the update, is it on some folder (which one?) and can you dump it?

    For your first question from what I read no but you may try it. The download via psn would be ux0:/bgdl/t but it's encrypted and won't work with decrypted games and currently, from my understanding, it cannot be dumped properly because it's not actually installed but I could be wrong. I'm in the same boat as you but with sword art online hf and silent hill book of memories.
