    So just a couple things I'm wanting to confirm with the new VitaShell 1.6 update

    Am i right in thinking that with VitaShell 1.6, a USB Flash drive can be mounted like a Memory Card and games can be installed to it directly using VitaShell or MAIDumpTool, without the need for a Vita memory Card?

    Also could i turn off the PSTV, plug the usb into a computer to copy VPKs or MAIs to the Pendrive, then plug it back into the PSTV, boot up and install the games that way?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hell
    1.- Yes, you can use USBs as memory cards now with VitaShell 1.6 (Only on PSTV)
    2.- Maybe you can, I don't have a PSTV to test it

    Your mom's basement.
    If you reboot the pstv, you'll need to connect to internet to run taihenkaku again, but yes you can do that.

    If i install a game to the USB and reboot the vita, do i need to run Henkaku again to play the game?

    Yep, you need to run henkaku everytime you power off your device and want to run any pirated game (or to use any USB as memory cards)
