    I hope they release the title of the new game soon… im still at 1.81 but im thinking of going 2.01.

    This wont have any use unless they release the exploit..

  2. seifer69er says:

    the link supplied is only updated with the r4.5 update for 1.0- 1.81 firmwares.

    can you re upload the 5.0 link for 2.0+ firmware?

  3. RagingCore says:

    I’m waiting for the release too. I updated because of the browser update but I’ll just wait patiently for them to release it.

    Can’t wait to play P3P on my Vita.

  4. Trunk208 says:

  6. Raziel says:

    pls put Uk Region Ps vita

    • TelcoLou says:

      ^^ yeah .. it’s only for Japan region, per the ppsp2-updatelist.xml file. I believe you may be able to use one of the other region’s .xml file from the previous version of OpenCMA.

  21. saeeid says:

    and below continue and/or use >>my<< existing Open CMA 4.5 version.

  22. LOSTuser says:

    If I just have a stock PS Vita with Sony 2.01 firmware, should I install this open cma? Or should I wait for custom firmware? Thank you.

  23. carlos says:

  24. Endlessd says:

    How do i install PSP games? when i copy and extract the files to the CMA folder it says file corrupt file

  25. Endlessd says:

    i cant copy PSP iso, it said corrupt file for all

    • Jd8531 says:

      Make sure it’s all capitals, even the extension.

    • nero says:

      put the iso or cso in the save data folder for the exploited ecfw game. then transfer them. and like Jd8531 said. use all caps, like; XXXXXXXX.ISO or .CSO max chacters is 8. no more, no less or else it will not show up.

  26. n1nurt4 says:

    • RagingCore says:

      What a coincidence, I’m going to lose my internet by the end of the month and was wondering how I was going to get my backup from the PC/PS3

  29. Dario says:

    release cf for ps vita 2.01

    mba on psn is patched

  31. Adil says:

    Dear wololo, i have a vita with firmware 2.00. Plz tell me that can I transfer iso games that I download from the Internet into my vita. And if I can plz tell me how. I want to know everything before I install cma. And 2 more things. Is the menu like the OFW and do the ISOs go into the memory card or what. Plz reply plz.

  32. lunatics says:

    So just to make sure I have this straight, if I have this installed and can connect my Vita to my PC and transfer things while not connected to the internet, then I can use this WHILE connected to the internet without it sending anything at all or checking Sonys servers for anything right?

  33. N says:

    Apparently this version of OpenCMA does not allow transfering through wifi, only USB connections.

  34. hollabronx says:

    Can you wait at least a week cus money is low

  35. yoggi says:

    noob here how do you set it up on the vita

  36. Sunny says:

    Hi im kinda curious but is there even a minor possibility that we will have psvita isos? plz tell thank you.

  37. iLubGorillaBLACKmen says:

    Thank you i was wondering what took long.

  38. GeneralGOOK says:

    This is silly no wifi transfer the update is pointless and pretty useless.

    • gunblade says:

      well i think its cuz if u want to use to wifi tranfer sony make u register the vita with the computer n people was saying they were having trouble running the wifi on cma to the vita on the 2.0 firmware. and u can jus use ftp to tranfer wireless if anything …

  39. ano says:

    dont hope too high guys..i dun think the exploit will be released..while this delay continue sony maybe will patched 2.01 & produce new that time this exploit will be delayed again & again.

  40. CHINESEchocolateSauce says:

    To everyone stay on your firmware that allows you to play homebrew.
    Its dumb to update unless your a fiend for whatever sony may be offering with the update.

  41. Chita says:

    omg guys free psn code generator

  42. Roach says:

    Any chance of a Mac equivalent?

  43. c-zero says:

    Even though I missed the Gravity Crash exploit, at least I know they’re working on a new one for 0FW 2.0+. I just have to shell out a bit more cash lol.

    BTW, OpenCMA 5 works like a charm! Hats off to the devs!

  44. noob says:

    Dumb question, but will this work with official FW?

  45. noob says:

    Would this work with official FW?

  46. choi says:

  47. JohnTURNERandRadimusRemirezGAYLORDS says:

    Honestly can someone make it with wifi transfer Im sure it isn’t hard I wish I didn’t have wrestling and kung fu skills id rather trade that anytime of day to be a dev.

  53. Kiddo says:

  54. brando says:

    Computer OS
    Windows 7
    PS Vita Updated to 2.01

    1.I downloaded the official vita cma like the directions said!
    2.I downloaded cma5 extracted it and copied the files in to the
    original offical cma folder!
    3.I ran bat file then i ran setdll…(also tried in reverse)
    4.When i ran bat file it says Access is Denied
    0 file copied
    Success: The process “CMA.exe” with pid 7740 has been terminated

    Error: The Process “CMADownloader.exe” not found
    Error: Couldnt vack up CMA.exw to CMA.exe~: 5

    Samething with CMA Downloader.exe and CMANPLIB

  55. VivaLaVita says:

    I deleted my old CMA (official version) re downloaded the latest version, and installed it.
    Then I downloaded the Open CMA 5 zip file from wololo’s blog and unzipped it.
    I copied all of those files into my program files/Sony/Content Manager Assistant where the real one is located
    Then I ran the “Run.bat” (batch file) and a black window came up with some codes, I hit any key to continue when it was done.
    After that I went to run “setdll” and for a very brief second another black window (like before) came up and immediately closes it self.

    And that is where I am. I have no idea if it was installed correctly or not, and if it was how do I use it? Also if not, what did I do wrong? (the instructions are brief and slightly vague)

    Thank you (I live in USA) if that matters…

  56. scrub7 says:

    Noob here, how can you tell if open CMA installed properly? Or rather, how do you use it once it is?

  57. exequiel says:

  58. exequiel says:

    is this still works?

  59. exequiel says:

  60. Dirtabd says:

    Open CMA 5 did not work for me on GC 1.81 of coarse. But i was able to use the connect to Open CMA for 1.81 on the PC and then run CMA on vita in backround then unplug and plug usb into PS3 then resume CMA trick to transfer UNO game and Playstation AllStars to my Vita on 1.81 without any fuss from PSN, the PS3 was indeed connected to the net too cuz it would not work if it wasnt connected. Does anyone have any explanation of why this still works?

  61. Matthew says:

    I did everything on the directions but how do you make sure you have openCMA?

  62. Keyur says:

    ATTENTION-Correct way for Installing OCMA
    1-Download the RAR file
    2-Extract all the files to the Original CMA folder.
    3-Run “RUN” file
    4-Run Setdll.exe

    NOTE-it wont work unless you copy all the extracted files to the Original CMA’s Folder

    • kupomogli says:

      3-Run “RUN” file

      Doesn’t work. I used what I had previously with 2.02. Extracted the .rar into the same folder. Opened Run.bat. Then opened Setdll.exe. Doesn’t work.

      When opening the .bat file it seems that some files overwrite others, but there are a lot that say that they won’t overwrite certain files. Or access denied, 0 files copied.

    Thanks brother! Love your work.

  64. IgnusArmagadan says:

  67. Vokoca says:

    So, what is this good for, save for being able to use CMA offline? Will this let me transfer games from one account to another, or is that still impossible?

    • stOneskull says:

      if you’re on official firmware it is just basically good for being able to transfer while not being connected to the internet

      if on some sort of psp exploit it also is good for transferring blacklisted stuff.. but yeah, only stuff that’s under the same account

  68. zed says:

    Guys, kindly check the comments before you post.
    otherwise it work.
    Thank You

  69. jckun says:

    • Davey says:

      Run the .bat file as admin too. You can start command prompt (CMD) as administrator but it requires you going to C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe and right clicking it and runnin as administrator. Then navigate to the content manager assistant folder and running the .bat then – it will run as ADMIN automatically since CMD (command prompt) is already running with elevated privileges. The default Content manager assistant folder is ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\Content Manager Assistant’ you can copy this link and paste it in command prompt. To change folders just copy and paste this
      ‘CD C:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\Content Manager Assistant’ (without quotes).
      and it will take you to the content manager assistant folder. Then just type ‘run.bat’

  70. eureckou says:

    Does not work with Firmware 2.12 (latest as of 07/11/2013)
    I’ll just wait for a new patch for Open CMA.
    Thanks anyways.

  71. x-eye says:

    People are still following this? Cool. Cause i wanted to ask if they have open cma for Android somewhere, and the forum is so crowded and confusing.anyway believe it or not i don’t own a working PC. Sad but true, all i have is my smartphone. Also dumb question alert: if something works on Linux will it work on Android?

  72. Herman says:

    I have 3.01 on my vita, if i try to cennect, on my vita it reads” You must update software for PS Vita system” Help Please !!!

  73. aka says:

    I am trying to do this with 3.01 and doesnt work.

  74. Yoooo says:

    Anyone having issues, run open cma as admit. Worked fine for me after! Might not help everyone >.<

  75. Davey says:

    You guys saved my ***. Got Vita on 3.18 and am using gladiator begins ect. ect. I keep my vita offline but I turned it on and vala ‘system update’ I panicked and thought I would never get my apps/games off my PC again because CMA required the update – but this completely bypassed that and even with the mandatory 2.30 update my Vita now knows no better and connects – WHEW! I backed up EVERY game/app I use before the update came out intentionally – if the Vita remembered this update somehow I would freak. Way too controlling on Sonys part. Netflix is working strangely I’m shocked Sony dosent SLAM you with this update since you need to login to PSN to use any online app – wow. Well it works – thanks guys.

    • Davey says:

      correction: I meant 3.30 update not 2.30

    • iPeris says:

      Can I you help me with that? I am in a same situation, downloaded opencma, I am on windows 8, run as admin and then setdll but when it’s done I try to connect and I still get the message that I need to update on my Vita and nothing happens on my PC

  76. Faffy says:

    Hey Davey – i’m trying to get gladiator begins on my 3.18 ps vita. I can’t sign in to download and install it without updating. How can I get it on my PC using CMA over to my ps v ?

  77. Ryu Hideki says:

    Help im a noob and just got my vita i installed open cma but it asks me to sign in to psn ithink wat to do i tried restarting flight mode etc nothing works

  78. Ryu Hideki says:
