    Although I do everything to the letter, when I restart I just get a paused update instead. What the heck am I missing? I’ve tried everything, and have absolutely no clue what else to do. Running 3.51

    • Saint says:

      Hey, I’m also in 3.51, how are you connecting your Vita to the PC?? I use QCMA, but the console still tells me I need to update D=

  4. ParlourMan says:

    I don’t know why but when I look at this, it reminds me of the Letterbomb method for the Wii.

  5. Jacob says:

    Hang on, could this lead to possible downgrades on the vita system and un-whitelist ePSP exploits on newer firmware. Well then kt is decided no more updates for 3.52 Vita.

    this is exciting times for the ps vita hacking scene. Much progress is being made lately.

  7. Tail870 says:

    Can we install another PKG, or it’s only PSM Unity?

  8. lollypop says:

    Can i use the same trick for install psm dev usb
    and witch assistant pkg … on my psvita for now ?
    as i wait for the psvitatv unity hack ?
    at this point i dont totally understand the hack tho.

    i’m going to be using both tho.
    unity for psvitatv
    psmusb for psvita.
    and psm+ for keyloggs.

  9. Axis says:

    My vita said i need to updaye my psm unity, should i update it or not?

    • Dustin May says:

      That depends on your firmware. I believe if your Vita’s firmware is at least 3.30, then you can update the Unity app to it’s latest version.

  10. lollypop says:

    what is the path for a package installation ? a psp pbp ? or a psvita epbp ?N

  11. NoOne says:

    So, can we install other DRM-Free packages too? Like some of the demos of vita games?

  12. DrRetro says:

    Wow, that is pretty cool stuff. 🙂

    Didn’t need it right now, already installed Unity over PKG Installer on my 3.18 “Homebrew” Vita. ^^

  13. Aciel says:

    where can I download the “PSM Development assistant for Unity” package?

    • Nio9345 says:

      Open the video on the Youtube page and it has a link underneath. You also MUST use Thunderbird, because any other method doesn’t open the files correctly.

  14. Nio9345 says:

    I just installed it ! Eat my taint Sony! Also for those who have problem with QCMA or Open CMA try this.
    1) Use VitaUpdateBlocker v1.2
    2) Follow the instruactions and spoof your Vita version.
    3) Use your favorite non-Sony content manager and restore the required save files and install PSM for Unity.

  15. Daniel says:

    Okay I’m super confused. It said copy unity to psavedata I did that but its not showing up can someone help me please?

    • Nio9345 says:

      There are several steps in order to get it. You will need QCMA (the only one that made it work), VitaUpdateBlocker and thunderbird (mantatory). Also disable the auto downloads of updates. Settings->System->Auto-Start Settings-> Uncheck the first.

      1) Install QCMA and thunderbird and extract VitaBlocker on desktop.
      2) On QCMA, go to settings and find where the PS Vita save files are located and copy the save file.
      2.b) If you have CMA, uninstall it before connecting PS Vita. You can copy your data over to QCMA and rebuild database, then your data will be there after you register your Vita to QCMA.
      3) Run VitaUpdateBlocker and follow the instraction on proxy setup on Vita and after that try to get to PSN page. Spoof your version in order to use Vita CMA, otherwise it will keep saying to update. If all goes well you will get on the front page of PSN.
      3.b) If you keep getting the update message, try to reboot Vita and immediately connect to VitaUpdateBlocker or wait a few seconds and try again. Sometimes the proxy stuck or the Vita doesn’t get the spoof correctly.
      4) On QCMA backup manager you must be able to see the save file on the PSP/Other section. If not you didn’t copy it correctly. If you did then after registering PS Vita to QCMA, rebuild the database again and it will be there.

        and how to use this for a psvita 3.36 , qcma is only up to 3.30

        • Nio9345 says:

          VitaUpdateBlocker and spoof your version.
          1) Restart Vita.
          2) Run UpdateBlocker and follow instruactions
          3) Spoof your version
          4) Open QCMA and restore/backup the files you want
          5) Profit !!!

    “Let’s say you can unlink a memory card from a specific firmware, which enables you to swap memory card without being forced to format the memory card or update the PS Vita system software.” — I would like to know how to do this exactly please. I updated my PSTV and now I can’t put my memory card in my 3.18 vita without it telling me to update or format my card.. 🙁

  17. Alaster says:

    This is NEAT! 😀

  18. Daniel says:

    Is there anyway to get a update file but all my games are updated and I Cant get on psn store or anything/do the alternative get PSM runtime package,login to psn or even access psn store! I get a error (NW-10743-5) Can someone help? I have the PSM unity save, and the email I just need a update file can someone help?

    • SuperSoup says:

      If you have any physical games, you can upload its save to QCMA, then delete the game from the Vita. Put the cartridge in to reinstall it, and it will be version 1.00 and offer an update. Once you’ve got the Unity app installed, you can then retrieve the save from QCMA.

  19. sansibar says:

    Please anyone help me! I have Vita 3.51 with PSM Dev & PSM Dev Unity. I’m registered on sony’s dev portal, but not having appoved publisher license. I try BallMaze demo with keyring (shared for me by any very good man), but i have error on stady deploying application to device: (-2138107559), 0x808F1159 Installing App Key failed/ Unknown Error Message.
    Anybody now’s how fix this?!

  20. Daniel says:

    Now I did everything right now I’m getting a c2 error when I’m gonna install the dev app, please help;-;

  21. Kilooli says:

    I’ve had hard time to make it work, to install PSM Dev Unity.
    The reason is that i used Outlook express to send the email.

    It seems that Thunderbird is MANDATORY to achieve this trick.
    With this piece of software, it worked flawlessly…

    A priori l’utilisation de Mozilla Thunderbird est indispensable pour que ça fonctionne !!!

  22. outrun69 says:

    Can this method works for injecting Toukiden: Kiwami psp jap pkg demo into my 3.51 PS TV so I can install the TNV exploit ?

  23. DinoX says:

    This looks cool. Onee question, I do not have the PSM Dev application installed on 3.36. I have VHBL and ARK-2, so will this allow me to install the PSM Dev since this was unavailabble for my country? Please give me answer. thank you

  24. Peter says:

    I got this “psm dev for unity” what now?

  25. Las-pen says:

    I have everything set up in my PS TV (3.51). Got the email with two attachments and have Spelunky Demo ready to update. However I can’t connect to QCMA.

    And trying to use Vita Update Blocker results in some kind of error.
    “File: “vita_update_blocker”, in
    …[about a dozen similar lines]…
    IOError: [Errno Socket Error] [Errno 10061]”

    Didn’t wan’t to use PSM Unity anyway :'(.
    I’m this close to just say: “Duck it, wake me up when there’s something similar to Pro CFW”
    What did I do wrong?

    • Las-pen says:

      Never mind. Tried to run Vita Update Blocker on an another computer and succeeded.
      \o/
      Then we play the waiting game.

  26. Gio says:

    So.. I tried doing this with my soul sacrifice game cartridge. I deleted the icon, put the cartridge in so it would reinstall at 1.00, and proceeded to follow every step from there. My result is always either the Soul Sacrifice update paused still or “Could not install (C2-13275-8).

    I am so very confused. Can someone please help me?

    • Gio says:

      I tried this again with a previously downloaded game, and still the same result. Right..
      So, what I’ve done is this:

      Put Unity on Vita
      Rebuild data base
      Go to game and select update, then pause the update
      Open Email App and select picture 1, then press home and close the app. Rinse and repeat.
      Turn off wifi, then turn off Vita.
      Turn on Vita. Check notifications.

      This time was borderlands 2, and it was still just paused there, as if nothing had happened.

      • Gio says:

        Update 3: i’m going to assume the Unity folder that content manager transferred was supposed to be more than 15kb. I don’t know how to get it to transfer everything.

      • Rosa says:

        Kewl you should come up with that. Exctllene!

      • Hoi Jef,Bedankt voor het compliment. Ik had natuurlijk wel andere knoppen kunnen gebruiken. Er zijn genoeg mogelijkheden om andere schakelaars aan te schaffen. Maar geheel volgens de -wijze heb ik gebruikt wat er aanwezig was om zo weinig mogelijk uit te geven aan zaken die strikt genomen niet hoeven.

  27. Coldus says:

    Sooooooo….. Does this work on fw 3.52, (cause the title >3.20 does suggest, that anything higher than that works with it) or, it doesn’t? Apperently in the video they didn’t show the fw number, nor in the text, they didn’t really talk about it…

  28. Sara says:

    thoughts on this topic. Really.. thank you for starting this up.
