    Hi folks,

    if you having a hard time like me; while trying to update your vita offline by QCMA to 3.60 fw (Henkaku) and also you can't find any information about this, i have found the problem...

    What was my situation / position:
    • i had correct files and correct file names too (psp2-updatelist.xml and PSP2UPDAT.PUP)
    • they were at correct place
    • refreshed qcma database (it was giving an error like no vita is added or something. just ignore it)
    • usb is connected
    • qcma was seen vita (vita connected message i get)
    But i was getting an error by vita everytime i try: "the latest version of the system software is already installed"
    i tried many times without any luck. i was checking file names, folders everything!
    But no luck.

    Finally i was about to give up and just give it shot to qcma settings (Other tab) (right click qcma tray icon -> "settings" -> "Other" tab on top.)

    The problem was in QCMA settings!

    because there is a setting is defaultly checked which is preventing you to update your vita to 3.60 fw...

    you should do exactly same settings like as i attached to this thread. (Sorry i couldn't use imgur or some similar because of i am new member, system is not alowing me to use hyperlinks:( )

    After this you'll succeed to update your console(i hope)
    You should just do normal operation after this(please restart vita first, so clean start)

    i created this thread because there was no information about this settings. Maybe it is about version of qcma or something but there was no information at all.
    i hope this can help someone.
