    it is uninstalled. I've managed to get my games back (I think), but I can't reinstall it for fear of a brick.

    Eh, is version spoofing to access PSN available yet? I don't recall any update on that since it was last patched.

    EDIT: Turns out I didn't have it spoofed to the latest fw. I had it spoofed to a lower firmware. PSN works now!

    alright, I think I've fixed the problems. doing a qcma transfer (not transferring over the app.db) got my games back. I made a backup of my games without the game contents a few months ago, so I got all my games back using only 200 or so MBs. I went ahead and overrode the enso error message (no issues so it may have been a glitch in system memory). I think I misunderstood what usbmc does. doesn't it allow the mounting of ux0 without unplugging and plugging back in the usb flash drive? I thought it mounted ux0 at boot. the flash drive no longer has to be unplugged to mount it. I figured this since reinstall taihen reset the config.txt (i.e. no longer linking to the usbmc.skprx). I think everything is the way it's supposed to be. it took me several hours of trial and error to figure all that out. when I uninstalled enso, it forced an update on me or I couldn't use the memory card. all default icons were blank when I cancelled it. updating fixed that. reinstalling the qcma img fixed the games, so I think I'm all done. I just need to get back @Berion 's theme which was lost in the transfer. lol

    correction: updating/reinstalling the firmware didn't fix the issue of the memory card not being read. I had forgotten this, but I had to reformat the memory card after uninstalling enso. I don't know if that's a bug or not, but it was very frustrating getting everything back to the way it was with enso installed.

    I hope all this information will help others who encounter the same problems. this was on a pstv with no memory card, so I had to do a lot of things to get everything back. btw, transferring over the app.db would cause a database is corrupt error after installing the 3.60 update through enso and after rebuilding the database. using qcma fixed that as I mentioned. I even took the app.db from an extracted qcma backup, and it said it was corrupted. I used a different backup this time. I made a backup with all of the games' content and one without. the one without the game content is what got all my games back.

    Anyone have a guide showing how to get SD2Vita working with a PSVita memory card as well? I have my PSVita memory card inserted that has all my installed games on it. I would like to use both at the same time. Is that possible? I have tried 5 different times to get this working and it just simply doesnt work. I go into Mshell and still only see my PSVITA Memory card and not my SD Card.

    from what I understand, you have two drivers. one mounts the sd card as uma; the other mounts it as ux0. u have to pick one or the other, and I think the memory card becomes the one u don't choose. afaik, there's no way to do what you're asking since only one drive can be seen as a single partition.

    no idea. I think the way it would be setup would be very complicated. you'd have duplicates of several folders which could get confusing.

    figured it out. used application storage manager to move it over. if anyone wants to do this in case they're waiting on SD2VITA in the mail it let's you move over homebrew apps to your system storage in one easy click.

    I also just removed my PSVita memory card and now do not see Molecular Shell. I still have Enso installed tho according to Settings. When I go to content manager on the unit it shows 0GB, but the orange light on top does blink time to time.....any ideas

    I backed up my entire memory card using usb and vita shell. it's on my micro sd, so I'm just waiting on the sd2vita adapter. ^^that's weird. when you mount usb as ux0, content manager shows full space. you're probably encountering a bug of some sort.

    I was able to get MShell installed to internal storage. But still not seeing the SD2VITA. Im noticing that the config file in ur0 has *KERNEL starting at 0004 and then at 0005 is the line I inputed referencing gamesd.skprx

    Then at line 0011 it has *main and everything else listed line by line. Could that be an issue?

    You didn't follow the directions at all. With Enso, you should NEVER have a config.txt in ux0: on ANY of your removable devices. With Enso, you should ONLY have config.txt in ur0:tai/

    Having it in ux0 (or anywhere but ur0:tai/ ) causes the issue you are talking about.
