Re: Bypassing "You Must The Update System Software" PS Vita

Post by nanihothearts »

I have a vita with memory card not linked to PSN account.
How do I let it read the contents without PSN login.

I restored my Vita for some orange light blinking twice and turning off problem, now all I have is a fresh vita with database rebuilt, and a memory card which is not accessible as it asks me to sign in before connecting to Content manager.

Please, I am few steps away from enjoying HENKAKU. KINDLY HELP.
