  1. Hi Riddle. I gave this a try on 3.36 just now and it didn’t work. PS Store told me I need to update.

    During the instructions, when you get to the front page of the PS Store, does this mean you don’t actually press START to enter the store?

    Also, do you need to keep the PS Store page open in the back ground when you disable the network proxy setting?

  2. yeah sir got it . it work like cham with good wifi connection thx for hard work

  3. glad to hear its still working

  4. will be a 3.18 vita update blocker?? yes, no, maybe?? i miss the store sometimes 🙁

    • No as the sumchecks are different then 3.36 and 3.18 and been block by all proxy’s from sony. So Vita Blocker does have much time left and will be blocked again but we might be able to use it again one day. Just like how we are using it now..

  5. If it only works on 3.36, what’s the advantage to just restarting your vita with the item in your DL list?

    ^this worked. After the system restarts press the notifications and double tap on the game and it installs

    • Most of those are are patched and don’t work. Except for the ps3 one, using a proxy like vita update blocker, opencma and qcma still work. Next some vita games require new firmware so you won’t be able to put everything on your lower firmware depending on where you’re at with the fw in the vita

  7. sigue funcionando alguien sabe

  8. Not working anymore, used to work, since i used this method to buy pool hall pro.
