    Hi! I’ve done the procedure for updating my PS vita from 3.61 to 3.60, but I faced an error which says: The latest version of the system software is already installed.
    (C3-12049-6)
    Please I need help

      Same prob here…. T_T

    • Josh says:

      It is impossible to downgrade. Updating means go up, and downgrading means down.

        *FIX
        I had de same problem, i solved it by going in to QCMA settings -> tab “Other” -> “User this version for updates” then choose FW 3.60.
        Default it is “FW 0.00 (Always up-to-date)”. There for you get the error (C3-12049-6)

        Hope this helps you.

    Can I update a PCH-2000 unit (JP) to a 3.60 US firmware using this method?

  4. Jack says:

    The xml link isn’t a download, just goes to a page with the code, I’m not sure what i’m supposed to do with that.

  5. AryanSO says:

    @Jack
    Right click and select “Save Link As…” from the context menu

    What’s the region code for a UK PS Vita?

    UK? GB? EU?

  9. Alex Clearwood says:

    Obviously once you have FW 3.61 it’ too late.. Forget about henkaku.. The only option left is VHBL!! So sad!!! It makes me want to buy a new vita system

    • AryanSO says:

      It’s probably a worthy purchase, if you were planning on playing games
      don’t know how much these things sell for though- aren’t they pretty cheap?

    Can I use this to downgrade or will it brick my device?

    Can 3.61 be downgraded to 3.60 guys. Or just only lower firmware can be updated. I have already tried so hard on 3.61. Help.

    • m says:

      This was written at the beginning of the tutorial – “Note that this tutorial is about upgrading to firmware 3.60, not downgrading to it! If you’ve installed firmware 3.61, you’re pretty much sc*** for now and will have to wait until a new hack is released for the PS Vita.”

      Which part did you not understand?

  12. Quite beneficial details. I did not know about the lemon juice
    getting helpful for lightening dark circles below one’s eyes.

  13. lady gaga says:

    it has already a 3.63 version why all people here keeps on talking about 3.61???

  14. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear andd screamed. There was a hermikt crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

    I don’t know if mine is Asian or Japan. So what do I put for region id=”XX”
    I wish it was more specific. US is not the only region for ps vita.

    Can you use this method to downgrade from 3.63 to 3.60?

  19. VoldemortsPuss says:

    For those of you that had annoying trouble with the “firmware already up to date” message;
    in QCMA settings, try changing “use this version for updates” to 3.60 Henkaku instead.
    Worked for me.

    Worked for me

    My PSvita is running on 3.55 firmware , but I still get the error The latest version of the system software is already installed.

  23. DarkV says:

    This post needs to be updated. QCMA is set to ignore the .xml file you downloaded by default. So that setting needs to unchecked I think.
