PSN and online features available to you on 2.02 without updating
Who wants to go online and download some new updates to their games? or play on PSN? and keep your exploit running? I know I do so the people over at Wololo.net has found out that you can go on PSN without updating to the newest firmware by using a proxy server.
Only thing IS that you will need a computer and have It kept on and you will need to connect through WiFi (this may or may not be possible through Mobile Network update soon to come on that one) So this will allow you to do all that you want to as If you updated except of course the wonderful update of nothing.
Note: Just to clear some confusion; you can use Vita FTP or any internet connection within the PSP Emu without doing this as using the internet (as long as you do not attempt to access PSN) does not attempt to make you update. This guide will help you access PSN and it’s features.
1.Download the psp2-updatelist.xml for your specific region: Japan, United Kingdom, United States, Europe. Save this file to an area that is easy to remember and easily accessible (Desktop for example).
2.(Optional) Rename the file to “psp2-updatelist.xml” (without the quotation marks).
3.Download and install Charles Proxy.
4.Obtain your IP Address. To do this:
•Windows: Start -> Run -> CMD -> ipconfig. IPv4 Address is what you need.
•Linux: Use the command line “$ /sbin/ifconfig” (without quotation marks).
•Mac: Apple Icon -> System Preferences -> Network.
5.(optional) If you do not have a working WiFi connection then create one on the Vita then move on to step 6. If you already have a working WiFi connection move on to the next step.
6.Open the Advanced Settings on your WiFi connection. Scroll down and select Use Proxy Server then enter your IP Address and the port “8888” (without the quotation marks).
7.Start Charles Proxy on your Computer.
8.Restart your PS Vita and connect to the internet. The best method for doing this is by using Connection Test (Settings -> Network -> Internet Connection Test).
9.Charles Proxy should locate “http://fxx01.psp2.update.playstation.net/“ and ask whether or not to accept this connection. Click Accept.

12.Select Map Local. Under Local Path select the file you downloaded in step 1 then save and close.
13.Right click on psp2-updatelist.xml again and select Edit.
14.Select the Query String tab. Click on Add.
