(Note: Open CMA is right now for PC only, but will be posted for Linux and OSX soon.)Open CMA 4.5 for Firmwares 1.81 and below: here Open CMA 5 for Firmwares 2.00 and above: here Each of the Official release pages linked above incorporate both the downloads and instructions to install.As of Vita firmware 2.10 if you already had Open CMA 5 you’ll need to download the latest Official CMA client from Sony and then reinstall the Open CMA patch.As of now, the Brook Super Converter is allowed by EVO, one of the most popular global tournament events.Often EVO's policies are adopted at smaller tournaments.Now here is something a lot of people are unaware of; you can download exploits that were taken off PSN and put back up later and use it as long as your Vita is on the right firmware.So this is extremely helpful if you happen to buy a new Vita, miss the exploit release or happen to accidentally delete the exploitable game while it was pulled.Below is the method and a chart containing the exploits, their respective firmwares, if they’re on PSN and if they’re either Usermode or Kernel exploits.Note that a kernel exploit IF released can be ported to older usermode exploits in most cases. Remove the Vitas USB cable and plug it on to your PS3 (Leave the usb still plugged into the port thats on the Vita.) (Dont close out the error message if you get one, until its plugged into the PS3) 5.

Open CMA also does not collect data regarding crashes.
So to install Open CMA, you’ll need to first download it, there are two versions to compensate for a block that Sony incorporated in earlier firmwares.
