Can someone enlighten me a bit, and explain to me how this is possible?

Specifically this part:

"If you do anything to mess it up you can always fall back on the backup you made before updating and activating. Just reinstall it with cma or qcma and everything will be back to normal with whitelist hack back on the system."

Because, AFAIK, QCMA only back’s up the Games, Music, Videos, Apps…. That kind of content. Not the app.db file itself…
And the APP.DB file itself is a system file, which also, AFAIK, QCMA doesn't access those, so...

CMA/QCMA can do a complete system-backup, which will backup all read/writable data on the system. (no firmware files or system apps), you can restore a backup onto another vita to essentially clone the original.

    Those tvs are all over Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, and the local recycling center for free
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    My daughters boyfriend just got a 36" Sony CRT for free at the recycling center. Works perfectly fine. He uses it for retro consoles and watching anime.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I've never used my Switch outside of my home. I don't care much at all about portability. It's always docked.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I'll need to get a small CRT eventually for older systems, preferably one of those with VCR
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Switch 2. 1440p baby!!!! Lol
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I love my portability, Steam Deck and Switch are my most used systems.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Got a Series X and a PS5 but I don't use them that much.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    You must have great eyesight. I can barely read text when playing games on a 55" tv.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Pre-ordered FFVII Rebirth's DE but haven't touched it yet.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Not really, switch games have a pretty good hud and ui for the size, steam deck depends, fortunately some games allow to increase the HUD and UI.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    You can play both Series X and PS5 on portable devices. Including on your steam deck.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I'm not a fan of streaming.
