Hi there guys! Im trying to update an oldie vita (1.81) to 3.55 using qCMA because i cant get opencma to work. I already downloaded the 3.55 OFW files and im using the following XML:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<region id="us">
<np level0_system_version="01.600.000" level1_system_version="03.550.000" level2_system_version="03.550.000" map="01.800.000"/>
<version system_version="03.550.000" label="3.55">
<update_data update_type="full">
<image size="123644416"></image>
<recovery spkg_type="systemdata">
<image spkg_version="01.000.010" size="56756736"></image>
<recovery spkg_type="preinst">
<image spkg_version="01.000.000" size="128776704"></image>

Also, im using qCMA in offline mode with 1.80 CMA protocol and both files (.PUP and XML) into PSV Updates folder.
Basically my problem is that when i try to "Update by connecting to a PC" i get "The lastest version of the system software is already installed (C3-12049-6)".

Does anybody know what might i be doing wrong?

I just updated a system from 3.55 to 3.60 this is how since this tutorial is a little outdated.
FROM FW3.55 to FW3.60

Things you will need:
SonyCMA: ... ASetup.exe
OpenCMA r5:
FIRMWARE FILES (specifically OFW!4UIDBTYA!MsemZea_bB- ... A!UJ4TSSBZ

Step 1:
Install SonyCMA

Step 2:
unzip the contents into the install path of SonyCMA
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\Content Manager Assistant\"
run the .bat file
This will patch SonyCMA

Step 3:
unzip files
move the file "psp2-updatelist.xml" into this path
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\Content Manager Assistant\"
It will ask you to overwrite the previous "psp2-updatelist.xml" just click OK

Step 4:
Disable your Wifi and out the Vita into Airplane mode
Reboot the Vita

Step 5:
Open the CMA program at your PC and put the Vita usb cable into the Vita and the PC. Open the settings app at your PS Vita and click at the "system update" option.
Choose the "update via PC" option and your Vita should be able to find the target firmware.

thats it ;)
thanks jack52032 for the files you are a life saver
