    I made this video to just fill in some questions like, best practices when soldering, what to do if the adapter keeps springing out or if the adapter gets stuck.

    What can you do today with the SD2Vita? I guess there are limits as of now?

    I don't get thepoint of this... does it go in the game card slot, because I thought it was to replace the proprietary memory card with an SD one.

    Is one in a case possible or is there not enough room for it? I want one but I'm scared of breaking it, getting it stuck or something due to how fragile it looks.

    I think you put instead of a game card this adapter and then you cant play card games...

    Ah, okay. Like a poor man's flash cart, right? Very clever. I've never owned a Vita, so I was confused.

    It might be if the "slot" springs down, it might be disabling the uma0 part and instead thinks it's a game that is inserted. (I'm just guessing since why else would it be bad if it springed?)

    @linuxares it springs up because it needs special latch grooves to hold it in, which the board doesn't have. It doesn't happen all the time.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    yeah kinda like that
    you can use a micro sd in the game slot, and with cfw you mount that space as a partition (which i guess the most common is swap the m2 slot partition with this new one)

    people hate the m2 proprietary card (low storage and very high price) and this is a way to put a micro sd in the console

    About how much did it net you to make it yourself rather than having someone else do it? Let's say I already have solder and an iron and just want to buy the SD piece and the PCB.

    @Robert McCoy If you watch the video I say how much it is per chip for materials. That is, if you already have a soldering iron, solder, flux, etc.

    Yes, a German in the other thread. She said it's recognizing it. She's having problems installing .vpks and maidumps though. Trying to figure out what's wrong with her setup, but she's the only one I know of that has attempted that large of a SD.

    Too bad these aren't mass produced yet for people who don;t know how to solder. Anyone know if someone is selling these adapters on amazon?

    one more thing (i dont know if its just my card or me) but if you have a large card (256GB). dont copy multiple vpks on it it throws out an error (if i copy only one at time it works)
