For what it is, or isn't worth, I thought I'd share some problem I had with QCMA.

It kept crashing selecting anything to do with the restore/backup menu. I'm guessing one of the packages was backed from a Vita TV on 3.3x/3.52 which it couldn't see. I removed the packages from the folder it was looking in, refreshed database and then just placed them back and it worked again. Stopped crashing with all the files in too somehow. Was a headache to see it crash all the time trying.

Hi all,

I have tried the instructions of deleting the CMA, uninstalling QCMA completely and reinstalling it,
I was able to connect at one point, however it could still not "rebuild database". And now after numerous tries,
my PS Vita still will not connect to my PC (windows 10 - 64 bit). In the QCMA there is the option to select firmware,
and I have noticed that 3.36 is not listed.... could this be the reason I cannot connect successfully?

Has anyone a solution in how to connect a Vita with 3.36 to a PC, cause even the few times it connected,
I got the message of "Update software".

Id appreciate it if anyone could share some info or tips. Thank you :)

It isn't obvious, but you must select CMA protocol version "FW3.30" for all 3.3x firmwares, "FW3.10" for all 3.1x firmwares and so on. Also, you must use Offline Mode in all cases except when you're trying to update to the latest firmware.

So in order to connect your Vita to QCMA using USB cable:
Put QCMA in offline mode with the correct protocol version set.
Put Vita in airplane mode (with Wi-Fi disabled), turn it off and back on.
I personally have near 100% success rate on my 3.18 Vita when I try to connect to PC via USB with a disconnected USB cable, wait for "Can't connect to PC" error to appear, tap "Yes" on "Is CMA installed on the PC?" prompt, then connect USB cable, and only then tap "Connect".

Yes, but the repo is set to private for now (no license, has ptp headers that i intend to remove later, no documentation, no commit messages, etc). Right now only the vita/pc pairing works so is useless even for an alpha.

I got obsessed by making a full C++11/14 implementation (RAII, exceptions and almost no pointers) so this thing has made little progress on these months. Right now i am stuck waiting for this to be implemented so i can continue coding the usb subsystem. If you want access just send me a mail and create an account on bitbucket.

Also yes, i intend to remove all the Qt4 code soon.

Added. I will update the readme tomorrow with the full goals of the project and the ideas for the UI comunication. Qcma2 intends to be a library so a QML, android or Web UI can connect to it without any extra changes.

I have a problem with restoring the backup to my Vita using this latest QCMA.
My Vita FW is latest 3.57. I try backing up the 32GB data files to my computer and it's fully working, but when trying to restore back, the progress always stopped at 21GB then it shows errors on Vita.

I have two different 32GB backups, one from previous QCMA version using Vita 3.55 or something (I forgot since its from October 2015) that I still kept it on my PC and then this recent one, latest QCMA with 3.57.

I can restore the old, 3.55 backup perfectly using latest QCMA but I don't know why 3.57 backup creates an error. I tried countless times, still with error, although I have format and refresh database of my Vita.

Thank you very much for this useful info! Works like a charm on my 3.18 vita. Without this QCMA does not detect my console, this method is not obvious.

Hi guys. Dusted off my PS Vita and booted it up after the longest time today. Connected it to my laptop and QCMA, only to be greeted with the dreaded "update your firmware" message. This is what I get for not keeping my Vita in Airplane mode. :?

I know the situation may be somewhat salvable if I use Charles to spoof a firmware update. But the update files for 3.01 are down on zload, and I can't find them anywhere else! Does anyone have them? Please help me out by uploading them if you can. Thanks. :)

I have one from OpenCMA r5: psp2-updatelist.xml, but I don't think that'll work. I'm following the instructions in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B__jx3RaNYs

Either that, or I wait for a new exploit. Are exploits still coming out for the Vita? I hope so. Thanks for your hard work, everyone.
