Hey guys! I just thought that since I had a couple of people ask me how to use Vita Update Blocker I would give a short tutorial, since that’s all that’s needed, on how to use it.
So, first off, if you’re not familiar with the program, what it does is catch the communication from the Playstation Vita/Playstation TV and basically let you do a few things that you normally couldn’t. For example, if you have a Playstation TV you know there is no USB to PC option like the Vita has so there is no way to simply connect to the PC via OpenCMA and transfer files. Vita Update Blocker lets you do this via wifi. It will also allow you to activate a Playstation TV by copying a game from your Playstation 3 to the Playstation TV without having to update, which would defeat the purpose.
The first thing you need is obviously Vita Update Blocker so you’ll need to go HERE and download the program. Now, go ahead and connect your device, whether it be your PSVita or Playstation TV, to your wifi. Make sure you have the settings turned OFF that says “download firmware updates automatically.” Once you have it connected, go ahead and start up Vita Update Blocker and make sure your antivirus or firewall isn’t blocking it. It should open up and give you an IP address, port and say “blocking all non-related traffic is DISABLED” which is what you want.
Now, go into settings>network>wifi settings>your connection>advanced settings. Now, scroll down a little and you’ll see proxy server and it will say “Do Not Use” so you want to tap that and change it to “use.” you’re going to put the IP address from Vita Update Blocker into the IP address spot and the port where it says port. Once that’s done and set up like it should be, you can exit that and go do your thing. To spoof it, just go to the PS Store and launch it. It won’t let you into the store and will just show the login but you will see vita update blocker on the pc spoof it. Now you can use it on the PS3 or PC without it asking you to update.
If you’re copying from your computer to Playstation TV be sure your OpenCMA, Cma or QCMA is set to connect over Wifi as well and connect to it via Content Manager on your Playstation TV. If you’re copying games from your PlayStation 3 to your Playstation TV then use Content Manager to connect to your PlayStation 3. If it’s the first time you’ll need to register it and input the code that the Playstation 3 will give you. This will give you the perfect capability to transfer with asking to update.
Every time a new firmware comes out the next to latest firmware will work through Vita Update Blocker for a week or two. To get access to the Playstation Store this way you MUST BE ON THE NEXT TO LATEST FIRMWARE and it also needs to be right after the new firmware releases. All you have to do is follow the steps above but instead of using Content Manager you simply open the Playstation Store and once it’s open you MUST disable the proxy, otherwise it won’t allow you to download anything.
