How to manually update PS Vita firmware 3.60

With PS Vita firmare 3.61 out, lots of people are asking how to update to firmware 3.60 without the risk of going “too far” to firmware 3.61. Asking your PS Vita by default will only give you firmware 3.61, so you have to be a bit sneaky. There are lots of tutorials out there, but they are a bit outdated. So here’s one dedicated to firmware 3.60 (which is just a variation of older tutorials).

Note that this tutorial is about upgrading to firmware 3.60, not downgrading to it! If you’ve installed firmware 3.61, you’re pretty much out of luck for now and will have to wait until a new hack is released for the PS Vita. This tutorial applies to people who are currently on lower firmwares and want to go up to firmware 3.60.

We’re basically tricking the PS vita into thinking it found the latest update on our PC through the use of QCMA.

  1. Download the PS Vita 3.60 firmware from this page.
  2. If you own a PS TV, stop here and check the official process to get an update from a USB Key (you basically need to copy PSVUPDAT.PUP to a folder named PSVITA/UPDATE/ on your usb key). You’re done.
  3. Download and install QCMA (you’ll need that tool a lot now that firmware 3.61 is here!)
  4. The firmware you downloaded is named PSVUPDAT.PUP. Rename it to PSP2UPDAT.PUP
  5. Copy the file into your QCMA Updates Folder (you can see that folder by launching QCMA and opening the settings). On windows that’s typically c:\users\[your username]\Documents\PSV Updates
  6. Download  this one and put it into the updates file.
    1. Important: This file is for the us version of the PS Vita. For other regions, you will need to update the xml and replace <region id=”us”> with <region id=”xx”> where “xx” is your region. You can do this with any text editor.
  7. On your PS Vita, make sure to go into airplane mode in the settings.
  8. Launch QCMA from your PC, then plug in your PS Vita via USB.
  9. In the Vita’s Settings, go to System Update, and Update from PC
  10. Triple check that the update says Firmware 3.60, and nothing else (in particular not firmware 3.61!)
  11. Update!

Note for those of you who have downloaded (but not installed yet) firmware 3.61: you can allegedly delete it from the bubble at the corner of your PS Vita. Then reboot and you should be good to start this tutorial.

OPTION 2

You can also change the connection DNS to the following DNS servers

DNS1: 212.47.229.76
DNS2: 212.47.229.76

By doing this you will block any updates above firmware 3.60 and your PSvita will think that 3.60 is the highest firmware available at all times.

This can also be used to block accidental updates to a higher firmware above 3.60
