    If you plan on hacking your vita, why not just install Henkaku and use its ftp server?

    I forgot
    Completely uninstall CMA if it's installed alongside QCMA, as that will cause issues getting the Vita recognized by QCMA. Then download zadig and replace the driver for the Vita, as QCMA installs an old version of libusb32 that new firmwares don't like.

    To replace the driver, plug your Vita into your PC, then open Zadig. Select "PS Vita" from the list (if it's not listed, go to Options->List all devices) and then click the arrow next to the big button and choose "Install driver". This should change the big button to "Replace Driver", click on it and it will install the new libusb32 driver.

    After that, you shouldn't have any problems.

    I had to do that when I was on the *.52 firmware but I also forgot to mention that you need data transfer usb cables. I have a set of official one and charging one and the charging refuse to connect to the computer. Then it the driver stuff ^ mention
