    this is just a thought but still… since we are able to sign stuff on the psp, can’t we transfer a signed homebrew or HBL to the vita and run it through the emulator? or does CMA not allow transfering psp games? as I said this is just me thinking 🙂 and I didn’t want to create a thread in the forums so I just said it here

    • Full Moon says:

      You can’t do that because there is no XMB like menu in the PS Vita psp Emulator.. So it is impossible to access them instead you use the HBL.

      • Notn4 says:

        thanks for clarifying that 🙂 but how do you access psp games on the vita? do you select a game from the vita menu and that game loads first the emu and then itself?

    This is all very exciting and stuff, believe me, it really is, but I won’t be able to afford the Vita just yet, so I ask. Does the coming of the vita means that the psp scene has to die? Not to be offensive or anything, I am just saying, though the PSP scene seens to be dead by now.

    • wololo says:

      Depends what you call the psp scene, really 🙂 No later than yesterday I released the beta of Wagic 0.17 for the PSP, it’s the result of months of work, so as far as I’m concerned the psp scene is not dead. I blog less about exploits and CFW on the psp scene because for now I consider there is little remaining to unlock, besides the possibility to unbrick recent consoles…

      • Guardian says:

        I just saw your post about wagic, it looks really amazing! Though I must confess I am not a fan of card games, I must admit that having your homebrew running on android and iOS is really impressive, about the PSP scene, well taking into account that Wagic took months of work, I guess that there still are some more devs working on something for the PSP, that usually takes long time besides, devs are unpaid, they at least have the right or having their own life. I other works I guess we just have to be patient!

    I can’t get this to work. I have the 3g model, FW 1.06, and CMA version 1.10.4086.63. It’s asking me to update for any online apps, not just the content manager.

    • wololo says:

      – Set your console into “plane” mode
      – hard reboot your console (press 20 seconds on the power button)
      – install open CMA if it wasn’t the case before
      – disconnect your pc from internet
      – turn on the vita and connect it to openCMA.

      openCMA is just here to allow you to copy files from your PC to the vita offline, it does not allow you to not update the console if you want to access any online sony services

      I’m also having a problem with CMA version 1.10.4086.63. However, It doesn’t ask me to update the apps. It just keeps asking me to update the firmware. No matter what I try. It won’t let me past that screen. I even tried to change up the XML file. No go.

    It is possible to adapt a PS3 connected to software as the CMA R3 PSVita so you can recognize multiple PSN accounts or not connected to the internet to Transfer the PSN games bought in the PSVita?

    Whether PC through Ethernet cable with access to Internet, but blocks the PS3 PSN account?

    I used google translate 😛
    Es posible adaptar un software conectado del PS3 al PSVita como el CMA r3 para que pueda reconocer multiples cuentas PSN o que no este conectada a internet para poder trasnferir juegos comprados en PSN al PSVita?

    Ya sea a traves de PC por cable ethernet con salida a internet, pero bloquea cuenta PSN del PS3?

    does anyone know how to veiw vita files without content manager,because i bought this computer online used and it only has the guest account unlocked,so i have insufficient rights to install content manager

  16. jon says:

    yea and so i managed to update my firmware to 1.8.
    My only problem here now is that whenever i tried using content manager, the vita system is asking me to link my PSN account to my vita system.

    well yes i don’t have the internet in my pc so i can’t link my account to it.. plus i don’t have an account..

    is there a way to not link my account to it and just use openCMA?
