Hi all,

Please forgive me if this question has been asked before. I'm quite new to the Vita in general so please bare with me.

My cousin and I both purchased a Vita last week. Mine came with an official 32gb memory card. However his did not.

I managed to install CFW on my Vita by following this tutorial:


It went smoothly and I had absolutely no problems.

However since my cousin did NOT get a Vita memory card with his, he went ahead and purchased a SD2VITA adapter so he could simply just use a regular SD card. I noticed through-out the tutorial that the person narrating kept emphasizing the word "official" whenever talking about using a memory card. My question is, will he be able to follow along like I did using his adapter or will he specifically need to purchase an official Vita memory card?

Sorry @ThaKarra ,which model do you have fat 1000 or slim 2000?
Without this information i can't help you,because the method changes according to the version of the PS Vita.

It's so hard to find memory cards in Australia (where I live).. They are expensive as hell.

Could this scenario work?

I let him borrow my memory card to hack his Vita. Then is it possible he can just save games using his SD2VITA? I read there is an app that lets you swap the mount points.

delete the id.dat from the root or else it will force him to format the card, but yes, you should be able to use the same card. the id.dat is what prevents the card from being used in another system. it will be recreated at boot. if you want to start fresh, don't bother with that, just have the system format the card.

Sorry @godreborn ,maybe you didn't understand his question:he asked if it is possible to use sd2vita without having the official sony memory card,once the PS Vita has been hacked.

There are website to help PSV1000 to hack without official sony card, i suggest ThaKarra check up on these first. As long as the permanent hack files/settings stay inside the vita, it can boot directly with SD2vita with no problem. After the first hack we can use IMCunlocker to make an internal ux0 on PSV1000 (to avoid problem with hacking/accident when you lack the official mem card later)
AND you can let the cousin borrow the sony card to hack. OR take his vita and do the deed yourself since you have all the tools and files, following godreborn advice to delete id.dat.
