Hi Guys,
I just got a PS vita (PCH 2000) and I followed this video guide to CFW my PS vita

I have successfully Installed henkaku and Vita shell to my PS vita
But unfortunately am unable to download vpk files via Vita shell.
I've set the main settings to

USB Device:Memory Card
Select Button: USB

When I press select I am able to connect to my PC and transfer the VPK File into the PS Vita Internal Memory. But when I disconnect it and install it. It just shows Error 0xFFFFFFF. 90% of the time when I try to install a VPK this message will show up.

I have tried using FTP and the same thing happens. Sometimes I'm able to install a VPK file but more often than not Error 0xFFFFFFFF pops up.

I have already tried using 2 different usb cables (These cables are ordinary Samsung phone cables)
Check to see if there is enough storage (Free space: 800MB VPK size:150MB)
Rebooting the PS vita and tried installing the VPK again (Error 0xFFFFFFFF still Shows)
Deleting and transferring the VPK again
Installing other VPKs from other sites and testing if they work (Which they don't as Error 0xFFFFFFFF shows up)
Reinstalling H-encore for the 3rd time

And still the problem persist.
If anyone has any idea or solution to solve this problem,that'll greatly appreciated !

a vpk is just a zip file. change the extension to .zip, extract the content, transfer over the content, and refresh the livearea. see if the app/game appears then. I've seen this happen before with custom theme manager. the solution was using qcma. :-/

Hi Godreborn,
Thanks for the reply,I have changed the vpk extension to .zip and have extracted the files inside the zip file. But how do I transfer over the content ? I have opened qcma and have used vitashell to connect to my computer. Do I drag and drop the files to my vita ? Or must I transfer them via the QCMA settings tab ? And if so how do I do that ?

Really appreicate your answer,thank you !

drop the content of the vpk into ux0:app . then, refresh the livearea . if that still doesn't work, you may need to make a qcma backup. that's the only way I was able to get custom theme manager working on my psv. I think I made the backup on the pstv, then transferred it over with qcma. I also got an error like yours, and refreshing the livearea didn't seem to work either. a qcma backup did, however, so since then, I've kept a qcma backup of everything. I think this problem is with vita shell.
