Again, thank you very much.
Pretty cool that you got a new vita with low firmware. I think it depends on your patience on what you want to do. You got a vita at a really good time since a new exploit is about to be released. You could just wait for the new exploit, hope the game is still available, update to 2.02 and buy the game.
However if you have to have ECFW tonight there is a way.
1. Update to 1.81, theres a few threads on the forum about updating to a specific firmware and not one from sony's servers.
2. Download OpenCMA for 1.81. You'll have to search abit since the current version is for the 2.0 plus firmwares.
3. Plug in your Vita to your pc and make sure OpenCMA is running. If it connects successfully (letting you move files) you should be able to go to the PSN store without having to update to 2.02 firmware as long as you stay plugged in. Not sure if that bypass method still works.
4. Buy Mad Blocker Alpha and download the Mad Blocker Alpha exploit save file.
On 1.81 that should all work and you'll have ECFW.
If you update to 2.02 the mad blocker alpha exploit no longer works and you'll have to wait for the new one which should be coming soon.
