So I followed the Noob guide and am running HENkaku with PSN spoofing. I can get to the PSN store and view my purchases but when I try to download them I get error. Which I expected because I did a bit of research and apparently this is an issue. Some more searching and a member suggested downloading to the PS3 and use Content Manager to transfer, which also gave me error. So my question is there anyway to mix homebrew games and purchased content? Or more specifically how do I get my purchased content onto my Vita without updating the firmware? I have a legit PSTV running 3.65, and a legit PS3, and PS4 if that helps me in anyway. Currently my Vita has none of my purchased content.

Sort of, but it'll require a second legitimate Vita with the same account (which you have).

The PS3 transfer was patched and PSN spoofing was patched, but if you have a second legit Vita with the same account as the hacked Vita, you can set the id.dat on it to read only on the hacked Vita, swap to the legit Vita and install games on it, then swap the memory card to the hacked Vita.

Note that 3.61+ games won't work, but anything 3.60 and under will. Also note that pirated games won't run on the legit Vita (of course).

Thanks Tom, I appreciate the information. I am using a fresh memory card for the legit games. When I load the hacked Vita with the card I do not have MolecularShell. I do have Enso installed. Now assuming I have to use MolecularShell to set id.dat to read only, how do I get MolecularShell on the new memory card? I inadvertently deleted id.dat in the HENkaku settings. Kind of new to Vita hacking so my apologies if this post is redundant in any way.

I guess you need to visit https://henkaku.xyz/ on the browser again to get molecular shell and then vitashell and access to vpk files! Also, read the pinned topics.

Thanks for the information. I was checking the pins, but I was not clear on visiting that link again after installing Enso. It looked to me that HENkaku and MolecularShell came bundled with that link, In which case I already had HENkaku. If there is no risk, or some options during install I'll go for it.

You should be able to just go to the link and it'll install Molecular Shell if it's not detected.

I would suggest, once you get Molecular Shell and Vita Shell, to use Application Storage Manager to move VitaShell to ur0, which is the internal storage on your hacked Vita. That means it'll always be on your Vita, regardless if you have the memory card plugged in or not.
