    Any chance the new exploit will be back ported to these games sometime in the future?

  3. IgnusArmagadan says:

    I was pretty excited until I saw it wasn’t 2.00/2.01. I upgraded to the newer firmware because you guys said there was an exploit coming out for it. I really regret upgrading…

    The psp game compatibility is quite high BUT most games won’t run unless they’re 1:1 copies right now. So, no removing firmware updates or shrinking/removing movies, etc.

    It’s a pain to set up at first, but once you get the hang of it, it works like a charm. I urge the experienced users to please help the noobs as it can be quite confusing in the beginning.

    Para los que tienen 1.81 y quieren usar sus juegos gratis de paystation plus y no quieren actualizar 2.0.1 para no perder el custom firmware
    Asegúrate de que OpenCMA está funcionando en tu PC y conecta la Vita a través del cable.
    Abre Content Manager en la Vita y cuando salga la pantalla que te pregunta si quieres transferir archivos desconecta la Vita desde el PC pero NO cierres el Content Manager en la Vita, recibirás un error “El PC ha sido desconectado”, es normal, presiona OK.
    Conecta el cable de datos de la Vita a la PS3, elige “Conectar a un Sistema PS3″ y debería salir la pantalla de transferencia de nuevo.
    Si llegas a este punto, entonces compra el juego en tu PS3 y descárgalo, pero no lo instales.
    Bajo “Copiar Contenido” elige “Sistema PS3 —> Sistema PS VIta”, luego “Applicaciones”, luego “PSP/Otros”, luego “Applicaciones Descargadas en el Sistema PS3″ luego elige el juego y selecciona Copiar.

    [B][COLOR=”Yellow”][U]Es cierto que al conectar la vita a la play te pide la actualizacion pero si sigues correctamente el tutorial veras que no te pedira ninguna actualizacion yo tengo playstation plus y ahorita para la vita hay varios juegos gratis los he descargado atravez de la ps3 y por este metodo los he metido a la vita y waaaaaaaalaaaaaaa ningun problema todos son plenamente jugables sin ningun solo problema incluso el de wipeout te pide una actualizacion del juego pero te permitejugarlo y descargando la actualizacion resulta que solo se instala en el juego no afecta el software de la consola asi que atraves de este metodo puedes aprovechar las ventajas del playstation plus el unico requisito es tener la pc la vita y ps3 la pc la tengo con el cma r4.5 no el r5 la ps3 con la ultima actualizacion y la vita con el 1.81. Es 100% comprobado ninguno de los juegos gratuitos de playstation plus tiene errores o incompatibilidad con el firmware 1.81 ya todos probados si tienes playstation plus aprovecha este fallo antes de que sony lo corrija.[/U][/COLOR][/B]

  16. Andy says:

    I am on ofw 4.31 and I can’t download the mad blocker alpha 🙁 It keep erroring when I try to download and it said activating and give me a error code.

  17. k3nn says:

    thanks for the eCFW, wololo! my vita was in the closet for too long and this helped me bring my psp games to the vita. now i can’t seem to put it down anymore ^.^

  18. TranceWarp says:

    Well…that leaves me out. I don’t have a PS3 to download the game(s) with. Is it still possible to do it without one?

  19. batman09 says:

    hello i have 1.80 ofw but i have the game one the ps3
    but i dont have a psn account in my vita
    how and what can i do?

    • TranceWarp says:

      If you have a PSN account for PS3, it’s the same. Sign in to the PSN Store on your Vita using your PSN credentials. If you have multiple accounts for zone reasons, use the credentials for the current memory card in your Vita.

  20. Batman says:

    Hi is this Will work to transfer apps ps vita from ps3? Like Youtube
    My ps vita has 1.80 ofw ….thanks

  21. Sync says:

    Mine was still 1.81 but don’t have a ps3 :\

  22. Tim says:

    I recently got a PS Vita as a present from someone who never used it and it is still on 1.06 (!). Is there a way to update to 1.81 (and not to 2.01 which is already out now)? Thanks!

  23. asdf says:

    Thanks, everything worked fine for me.
    One stupid question though, how do I transfer my psp savegames to the vita – couldn’t find anything on it.

    You can update to 1.81 with charlesproxy, there is a link to the tut on the first page of comments I believe.

  24. shay says:

    is there a way to do that without a PS3? cuz i dont have one…

  25. drojf says:

    installed it today, still works. Just note that sometimes, when you go to copy stuff over, the copy will immediately fail for no reason. No problem, just start the copy again and it will work

  26. ze says:

    bonsoir j’ai une vita 1.81 et quand j’ouvre open cma il me demande de faire une mise a jour que faire?????

  27. Ecchi says:

    Help, when I connected my PSV into my PS3 there’s always a message [quit all software you’re running on PS3 system]

  28. accounts RF says:

    @Ecchi Same problem here is how I fixed it: Just start a PS3/PSN game and hit PS Button/Quit back to XMB. Then reconnect your PS3-Vita and try it again.

    PLS Note you have to back up your PS Vita to your PC before doing this exploit! Otherwise the PSAVEDATA/ahfeaf0874/ folder won’t exist.

    Put the appropiate CEF 6.60 TN savedata in there and start the game.

    To all I used EU Urbanix game still works as of 28/12/2012
