Bypassing psn firmware upgrade
In order to download content from the psn network you must spoof your firmware version to 1.81. To do this we will be utilizing our computer as a proxy.
First you must download and install the program Charles proxy fromhttp://www.charlesproxy.com/download/
This program will be used to intercept the data which our ps vita will be sending to the psn server.
Next you need to downloadhttp://www.mediafire.com/view/?gr2k71lnxz6fiq7
This is the file we will use to spoof our firmware version.
On your computer run Charles proxy. Go to the command prompt and type, ipconfig /all
Take note of your ipv4 address
On the ps vita go to the settings menu, in here find the sub-menu network, then go to the sub-menu wi-fi settings. Select the wireless access point to which your connected and go into the advanced settings menu. Scroll down to where it says proxy server and enable it.
For your address you should use the ipv4 address we found through the command prompt and set your port to 8888
on the Charles proxy window clear the session, to do this go to file and choose clear session
on your ps vita go to the xmb and enter the ps store, itll ask you to upgrade, press the home button and exit to the xmb
on the Charles proxy there should be a file labeledhttp://fuse01.psp2.update.playstation.net, open this file and find psp2-updatelist.xml
right click this xml file and select map local, choose the file we downloaded
right click and select query string, choose to add in new tab
type var and 01810000 in the boxes
go back to your ps vita and enter the store, this time it should not ask you to upgrade and you can purchase/download content
To transfer content onto the ps vita you need to use the cma, useage of this program requires you to update the vitas firmware however. So to get around this you must use open cma.
Note: Below instructions for this part are directly taken from wololo.net
- extract the archive in your CMA folder (program files/Sony/Content Manager Assistant by default)
- quit the CMA if it is running on your PC
- execute “run.bat” (you need to run it in “Admin mode” on windows 7
- That’s it, now the CMA should run without requiring to be connected to the internet
extract these files to the cma save data folder
connect your ps vita to your computer and copy the vhbl files as save data
Transferring homebrew to the vita
Download a homebrew of your choice and extract it
save it as “INSTALL.ZIP”, with no compression
take any save data file and add the zip file to it
so it should look like the below file structure:
game save folder
Put this in your save data folder for your cma client and transfer it to your ps vita
Alternatively pre-packaged homebrew can be found athttp://www.wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=10859
Start the game, the save data will load
Choose the option to download at the main menu
Select yes and vhbl should start
When inside vhbl make sure you are in the folder named save data, ms0:/PSP/SAVEDATA/*
Your packaged homebrew content should be found here
Select it by pressing o, itll ask if you want to install select yes and wait
After its installed you can delete the file from the savedata folder to save space
Navigate to ms0:/PSP/GAME, your installed games can be found here
Select them to play
Playing monster hunter while having vhbl
Go to the main menu
Select new game
Select new character creation
When it asks you to save the game choose the 2nd slot
slot 1 is used for the exploit, so make sure not to over write it.
This may or may not have already been patch, however due to not owning a Vita I am not able to test this out for you.
