    Hackinformer? I said this literally minutes after 3.551 went live….

    • nope says:

      You and probably several hundred other people who’ve known about the proxy method in the past probably said the same thing. Hackinformer is more convenient to reference and this article was more meant for people new to the Vita scene I believe.

    Well I finally got this to let me download Minecraft yesterday but I cannot even connect after that. I get a connection error after disabling proxy settings. Nothing seems to stop it. I got all I wanted before I couldn’t access the store anymore though, so Thanks for the post!!!!

  20. Kuzu says:

  21. Lafrog says:

    Not working anymore -.-

    • Blah says:

      Same here. Was working yesterday, but seems to no longer be working today.

    • grandgroove says:

      Confirming the same. I last used my (FW 3.50) Vita with PSUpdateBlock on Tuesday, and I could pass. Now, it is failing.

      I’m tinkering with the source code and the Python module to see if I can get the exact info to let us pass.

  22. Bossster says:

    Any update on update blocker on 3.50? No fix in sight?

  23. Snowball says:

    Could you confirm that this tool is not working anymore please?

  24. L3nny says:

    I see GitHub repository have not been updated since 3th june, so, I guess we must wait for another release or take the code and compile it ourselves with changes.

  25. Jinh says:

    My PS vita on 3.51 and I use update blocker is work first time but when I tried again it’s doesn’t work

  26. Jose says:

    Tengo la version 3.36, pero no puedo iniciar sesion por que tengo que actualizar a la mas reciente, pero con el blocker me dice que ya tengo la version nueva.¿Como le hago para iniciar sesion sin actualizar?

    I have the version 3.36, but I can not sign that I have to upgrade to the newest, but with the blocker tells me that I have the version nueva.¿Como you do not upgrade to login?

  27. TesseractE says:

    So it appears that this stopped working for 3.52 today. From what I’ve read, this is a known phenomenon, but I’m scratching my head as to WHY this stops working.

    I’m new to the Vita/TV world, but it seems like without firmware updates, nothing Sony does server side should have an effect while the proxy is running since the update traffic is being intercepted.

    Would SKFU pr0xy still work if properly configured?

  29. Seedorfbiggy says:
