    If you setup a PSTV to run Henkaku using the offline launcher with it all stored on the 1GB internal space what happens when you insert a memory card? Does it copy across all of the settings/exploit or would it have to be reinstalled?

    I've picked up a PSTV for a friend and installed Henkaku as he isn't technically inclined but I'm wondering if it will be a simple plug and play thing for him when it arrives, ideally all I'd like is for him to plug his memory card in and have it all work.

    Anyone ever tried this?

    I believe when you insert the memory card, it ceases to use the internal memory and transfers saves to the memory card, so the Henkaku exploit will need to be installed on the memory card too :)

    Yeah, that'd be correct. When the memory card is inserted, it transfers everything on the internal to the memory card (so if you installed homebrew and stuff, that will be transferred too).

    But, as mentioned, Henkaku does need to be reinstalled.

    I had a feeling that would be the case.

    Thanks for the help.

    Thankfully Henkaku takes like 15 seconds to install at best, so it's no big deal if it has to be reinstalled :P
