    Heyo. I just got my PS Vita today, and I'm on 3.60. Installed Henkaku, and that worked just fine. I'm currently trying to connect to PSN, so I downloaded vita_update_blocker_v1.2.exe and currently running it. I went to my connection settings, set up the proxy ip and port that I saw on vita update blocker, and connected to PSN. Right now I just want to download the Project Diva X demo, but as soon as I sign into my account, it told me that I must update my system in order to sign in.

    I'm a bit confused. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a limitation? Just before this I went into safe mode, restored the System to default, rebuilt the database, and formatted the memory card. I did disable the download system update automatically thing. Is there still a chance that there are update files in memory, while I was setting up my wifi connection? If so, how should I get rid of them?

    Thanks a lot for any help!

    Oh wow. After researching, I came to the conclusion that it would. Well that's a shame, I guess there's no workaround to this for now?

    I think the only way to do it now is using a legit PS3 console. I'm in the same situation, as I just bought a PSTV and it needs activating so I can use bought PSN titles.

    It used to work, even on 3.60, but a day later, it doesn't work anymore:(

    Damn. My PS3 died years ago, and I don't remember any friend having one, I really wish it worked. Also, since I'm new to this, will a game card of Project Diva f 2nd work just fine without telling me to update? I'm guessing yes, but just making sure.

    Also, does PSProxy 4.0.0.0 yield the same results?

    If you are trying to do VHBL installs, then you need a PSP demo or bought PSP game from the store. Never played that game in question but physical copies should not pose a problem unless the game is a online only one.

    he is not. Project Diva f 2nd and Project Diva X are not PSP titles.

    Alrighty, cool beans. I was just looking to enjoy that demo. I haven't dug into VHBL yet, and I'm not sure where to get a PSP demo, since PSN isn't an option anymore. I do really like the progress I'm seeing in the Vita hacking scene though, so I can just stick around and wait for a while for things to bloom.

    The vita ring/scene has said that vhbl will be pointless in the following weeks so i wouldn't be surprised if they have something in the works :P

    it'll never be pointless unless we get something like TN-V. Running homebrew from the humongous PSP library is awesome.

    For now all we can do is use PS3 to download PSN content and wait for a possible FW spoofer. Not like it makes a difference for me lol, Vita was just gathering dust for like a year after I played P4G
