It seems to be up and down quite a lot. If it stays down for awhile. Check the posts on the previous page. I used that file and method to upgrade mine from 3.15-3.18.

I tried that without succes, does it need the xml file in the update folder ? My vita is not activated yet maybe I should do that first and then update.

I am new to this. Since the server is down is there another way to update the firmware?

Please let me know. Thank you

I took a gamble, i downloaded the current firmware 3.52 so that I could compare file size and then downloaded what was hopefully 3.18 from http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/FIRMWA ... -318.shtml.

I checked and the file from softpedia was 10Mb ish smaller than 3.52 so I was definetly not installing 3.52, as I know the Vita checks sigantures etc... so even if the file was potentially dodgy in some way I knew these checks would fail and not brick the Vita so I gave it a go using the PS3 Proxy method on the first post in the hidden sections.

To be safe I downloaded the XML file and changed all references to 3.52 to 3.18 (more to keep my mind at ease that the version number was coming from the XML file and not the PUP) which it was and spoofed that file as well as the firmware just to make sure that the version did change and it did.

I can confirm I am now on 3.18 from what was originally 3.01, so if you follow that post and use the above link you should be good to go whilst The Z web site is offline.

Hope it helps

James
Please take a look here for more info: http://wololo.net/2013/04/17/lower-ps-v ... r-dummies/ under "Manually Updating to any firmware from a lower firmware". I recommend that you not fool with the xml file. It is dynamic and it caused me no end of frustration and hours of wasted time, and oh by the way, it is not necessary. It said I was getting 3.52, I got 3.18. No problem. Thanks for the help. Hopefully the server will be back up some time and you won't have to mess with this.
Please make some effort to look at the thread before you post a question.

What firmware are you looking to update to? I downloaded all of these files in case something like this would happen and could give you them via Dropbox.

Please upload the files I also need to update to a higher firmware, I'm also offering to upload these files to a reliable hosting site so they don't go offline again.

Plan to upgrade to FW 3.36 from 3.18 because Rejuvenate 444MHz. But look like Rejuvenate doesn't have much developer at all. Probably will stay put at FW 3.18 for now.
