I just got a new vita with 3.6 firmware. It has HEN installed already (I go through the email program and it installs it?). I did that and tried some GBA emu and SNES emu and it worked.

Now, how do I install Vitamin and then transfer vpks? Are there some really step by step tutorials for that? I see videos talking about using FTP and stuff to transfer and I don't know what all that means.

do I need vitamin installed to launch a transferred VPK? or is Vitamin only used for dumping? So do I even need vitamin if I'm only launching vpks?

Please someone knowledgeable PM me and help walk me through it! I will love you forever!

You only need Vitamin to dump your own games. Don't need it to play games other people dumped.

1. Download and install a FTP program. (I recommend using FileZilla)
2. Open Henkaku on your Vita, and press select. A window should open up with an IP address.
3. Open your FTP program and copy the IP address from your Vita to the FTP program and connect.
4. Move the .vpk file over to your Vita. Anywhere you can find it easily.
5. After the file successfully transfers over, press O on your Vita, and navigate and find the .vpk file.
6. Press X to install.

I know, i hope someone knew how if it was able to fix. I dunno if it is the ES file explorer, or the PSvita ftp that henkaku use.

Just got home and checked. Definitely something with ES File Explorer. I downloaded "Turbo Client" from the Playstore and was able to FTP to my Vita.

How can it be problem with es file explorer, I never had issues with ftp until the vita henkaku was made. I can use it with my 3DS using micro sd management, or the FTP turbo homebrew. Even my pc works with it, and wii homebrew FTP works.:blink:

Can we delete .vpk files after install it?

If you have a problem with ftp just rename the vpk to mp4 put the file in your ps vita video file and use qcma to transfer the file after its on the vita use Henkaku to re name file to vpk,done
