Updated Open CMA, Fixes Errors

A new version of the Open CMA for Vita 1.80 has been made to easily fix the errors alot of people have been receiving. (This also fixes the music/video bug!)

You can download the newest version here or alternatively if you already have the other one installed you can replace the psp2-update.xml file with the correct one corresponding to your appropriate region at the bottom here

 

Tutorial for the new version:

- 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

Its recommended that you do use open CMA when the vhbl files come out.  Open CMA for those who do not know is the content manager to copy files to the vita and back but without any internet connection unlike the official Sony CMA. It will also not sneak a patch or do a forced firmware update on your device if one comes out and it will not send any data to Sony about whats being copied, edited, transferred or crashes.

    Cool; one question though; I used the previous r4 version a couple of days ago, and had no bugs/glitches transferring a video file. Should I update mine with this patch?

    You don’t have to, this is more stable but it’s up to you :)

    1. TelcoLou’s avatar

      Thanks very much :D Stable = better, IMHO, so I started from scratch, also because I know of someone who was still having trouble. This version works for me just fine on WinXP Pro, so I shall pass the word! :D

    can sony detect your cma is hacked and force a secret update to patch your monster hunter game? sounds bad we should all take up wololos generosity and not complain if this should happen. thnx mate

      That’s the point of Open CMA, it doesn’t send anything or talk to Sonys servers, if you turn off the Internet you’ll be offline also.

      No Open CMA does not connect to Sony’s servers. Basically it has been patched so it is a offline file transfer and does not transmit any data through the internet about your activity. Hence why we say use that.

    Bah!!!
    I think I will leave mine until I need to use it, have just spent the last hour or two messing about with the r4 release, I have only JUST come back to doing my normal work online and then I spot that it’s had a bug fix, ha ha ha ha, just my luck for timing I guess :p

    ive been trying to install it with no success the vita still asks for internet, do i need to uninstall it from the vita too? how?

    Reply

    1. Jd8531’s avatar

      You need to uninstall CMA on the PC if you are going to switch from the old one to this one. You don’t need to on the vita, just close it out and restart it

      Reply

      1. meanmachine781’s avatar

        alright, i kinda got it to work, when i first connect the vita it recognizes it and im able to copy to and from the pc with the content manager but if close it on the vita and try it again it tells me i need the internet it only works if i quit it on the pc and open it again, i can copy other stuff like pics and music without using content manager tho, any help?

            You need to replace the psp2-update.xml file then and try that. You must be using the older one.

    They removed the game from the U.S PSN store. Thank goodness I got the game few days ago. Now I just wait for the VHBL files. Fuck yeah! :)

    Thank you thank you! I completely uninstalled OpenCMA180 that was giving me errors, and deleted. Then I reinstalled the current version of CMA. Then used Ctrl Alt Del and stopped all CMA processes running. The I followed the instructions in this post re running run.bat as an administrator. Shazam….OpenCMA now works on my Eu 180 Vita in flight mode! Thank you!!!

    Well roumour has it that site maintanance is removing Monster Hunter from all stores, among other things. wonder if all versions of monster hunter get removed or even just updated. Will wololo wait till they test after the update to see if Monster hunter is back and test to see if its been patched? Then we may get VHBL release!

    The waiting is frustrating to say the least.

      They never patch the games themselves; they blacklist them in subsequent firmwares to prevent the exploit from triggering.

    guys i have got a question…which version of cma i need for vhbl? i just need the last one and then patch with this one so i dont have to be on internet for files transfer?

    Reply

    1. MakoChild’s avatar

      You just need CMA 1.80. Open CMA 1.80 would be better so that internet is no longer required and so that sony cannot know what’s being transferred to and from your Vita. But Open CMA is not a requirement. Just suggested.

      Reply

      1. oxMUDxo’s avatar

        I dont think you can copy hacked save files with out Open CMA or PSP files to install homebrews.

        So Open CMA is very needed.

        Reply

        1. MakoChild’s avatar

          Oh yeah I believe your right. If you have a save file that was created from an unsigned game on a hacked psp, you may not be able to transfer it without Open CMA. But I don’t know for sure.

  16. Armookie’s avatar

    How do we know if open cma connects to servers when wifi is on or not? Even though we may be able to transfer files offline, this does not mean for sure that sony still can’t see what we do when wifi is enabled on the pc. Correct me if thats not the case and that open cma totally removes connections to sony.
    Does any one know if that’s correct?

    Reply

    1. Jd8531’s avatar

      It removes all connection, if you feel safer turning both vita WiFi and PC internet off you can.

    wouldn’t it be easier once CMA is installed to block internet connection to it with a firewall

    Reply

    1. Jd8531’s avatar

      If you mean blocking the official cma with a firewall, you cant as the official cma has to connect to their servers the entire time.

        i have open cma installed i just blockefd it with a firewall so i dont have to disable my net, i just turn flight mode on on the vita works perfect

          you could but the whole point of open CMA is so you dont have to do all of that :p

      Must say that would be awesome but I don’t believe the psvita will play them like that. I think an exploit would be required.

    Mhh do anybody have an idea? I install the normal CMA new. (Withhout connecting the Vita at the end or connecting to internet.) Then I try to install the Open CMA step by step as shown in the read me. (Bevor starting the run.bat I kill all CMA processes.) After this, and starting CMA, the CMA freezes, and processor runs with 100% and nothing happens. Killing CMA and restart doesn’t help, only uninstall and reinstall. (But as I said, after installing Open CMA and starting it, then it freezes.) Running XP SP3.

    Hello,
    When I click on the link to the fix for Open CMA to download itself opens a page where a window opens, if you want to enter or leave the page.
    In any case, the page freezes and has probably a Trojan on the computer.
    This is all the scrap Wololo page

    My firewall caught Open CMA 5.0 trying to connect to a UK website, anyone else noticed this?

    It wasn’t just localhost either, it was an IP address beginning 178.x.x.x. I thought this was supposed to stay offline.
