    I reset my Vita a while ago, so there’s no way for me to access PSN on my Vita without upgrading my firmware. So I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place. :/ Again.

    don’t get mad at my noob questions but i don’t get it. do i have to restart meaning shut off and turn on my vita? or reset it completely and re-link it to my account again? also don’t i need to be logged into my psn account to see my download list? if so, shutting off wifi and enabling airplane mode doesn’t work. it just says flight mode is on. and is this done from the vita,ps3 or both. plz help without trolling. thanks guys ;)

    tested on March 30, 2014 and still working!
    for those who are not able to get it to work, on step 2 you have to go to the Online Store on your PC. do all of steps 2 to 4 on your PC. then follow rest and it will work.

    Heads up…I tried this and it deregistered my vita, when I bought the game online and tried to download it…It said I need to register my vita..even though I have purchased things before. Anybody know another way to access psn from my device?

    This worked fine last week for Final Fantasy XHD but today trying the method to get Football Manager Classic 2014 nothing downloads!!! I dont want to lose my TN-V – am I sc*** – have Sony blocked this? Anyone?

  9. nocturnalsteve says:

    Right. Can anyone else on 3.01 confirm that this DOESNT work anymore?

    I deleted one of the FFX from my Vita and added it to the que via PSN and did the trick above, no download :(

    Other than update and lose TNV is there any other solution or have people still got this working??

    Help!!!!
