Interesting... I'd need something like this to be done within a game or something... I'm trying to get a note chart file for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva ƒ 2nd from the PSN but it's making me update to 3.30, of which I don't want to do. Could anyone with this game get me the note chart (Sharing the World... Editor: Alyssa221 PSN ID: AlyssaHoffee221)? I have the song DL'd and ready to send over to my Vita.

Thanks in advance!

this will not help you connect to PSN.. only charles proxy and vitaupdateblocker can do the work..

and by the way, no need for "rebuild the database" thing.. you just have to normally restart your vita with wifi turned off, and flight mode enabled. then you can use qcma/ocma

You cannot connect to the PSN if you are not on the latest firmware, simple and short however convoluted it may seem. Charles just spoofs a firmware update tricking the Vita into thinking you are on the latest firmware (so it won't bother you anymore about updating to the latest firmware). I believe you can also update to a specific firmware (obviously below the most up-to-date firmware but above your current firmware) by passing the appropriate pup file into the proxy client (charles or skfuproxy - when you start the update, it will appear as an activity under the client and you can inject the pup file).
So you can stay on the same firmware (by spoofing just as you would spoof an activation if you want to unlock a mobile phone sim card), you can update to a higher firmware (that is not the most recent, you CANNOT downgrade) but you can not have access to the PSN or other online features if you are not on the latest firmware.

I can now by pass update system and connect to my PC but I can't find the files/folders that contain the homebrew game(s) that I want to install. I tried changing the folders in the settings for QCMA to where my psvita files are and where I installed by custom firmware. Any ideas?

What about connecting a Vita to a CFW PS3 avoiding needing it connected to PSN?
