I know how to get NEAR to work as well! with less work needed too! Just wait for Sony to fix it! GENIUS!


^ Yes let us wait for SONY to fix it...
Just like we are still waiting for bugs that were on the PS3 since launch to still be fixed >_>

^this

It even works when I'm out and about, and the Vita is in sleep mode. It auto connects to Wi-Fi spots that allow auto connect without a login. So I dunno, perhaps it's not the Vita at all, but people's terribad PC/Internet/Router setups? Meh, mine works great so I could care less.

I'd like to know what isn't working as well. Mine appears to be fine (other than I don't know how to delete game goods I download on accident for games I don't even have)

Um, it's stickied (even though I don't feel it should be). You don't have to bump it...it already stays up top. Just sayin.

I was just listening to the Official Playstation Podcast episode 18 and they mentioned this workaround at around 57:10. I wonder if the TC submitted this as a tip. If not, someone reaped the benefits.

^ I actually knew about this "tip" for like 1 month before I posted it here.
and Sony Tweeted this solution a few days after I created this topic.

I guess they stole my idea lol.

Hmm, so I never got around to actually doing this, but after downloading the latest update today Near seems to have found my correct location.
