    Hi all, I am new to Vita hacking (just got one this week). I read somewhere that if the system goes to sleep you will have issues saving? Is this still the case or has it been resolved?

    It was an issue only with P4G not all games.
    Btw.Its not the henkaku issue but shitty game dumps

    It didnt needed any "resolve" it was a human>dumper>machine problem
    And not this shouldnt happen if you use newest dumps.
    If you want to be always sure:Before entering sleep mode push psbutton

    Ignore everything he said.
    Yes, it is still an issue. Pressing the PS button before sleep will not work
    I know this because I'm playing the Maidump version of Trails of Cold Steel from the vitapiracy torrent and lost about 3 hours of progress because I forgot about the save bug after not playing my vita for a while.
    What you need to do is always save before you put your vita to sleep and google a "fix" that works for some people that involves changing to a 12 hour clock and deleting a certain file in your uxo folder.

    It was an old bug lol

    Is it a newest dump ?
    I got also a problem with game but switching to latest dump fixed it

    Also i said ps button cuz it pauses game (request pausing ) and if game is on "nopause" state it will show an red circle on the left corner

    I'm on the latest henkaku and this still happens to me. Playing an Uncharted Vitamin 2 dump. I too thought pressing the PS button would help but it doesn't

    Personally finished uncharted playing whole week without turning off vita.
    Always using maidump
    Im still saying that is a bad dump problem (or only for some sys/vitas)

    Or i am just the lucky guy for which everything works fine

    After losing all my saves TWICE, I stopped taking the Vita seriously. The first time my Vita memory card got screwed up somehow when it was powered off nearly a year (inside its protective hard case).

    Second time was after I tried dumping a couple games with Vitamin. And this is VERY IMPORTANT, I >>NEVER<< put my Vita to sleep. Not trying to blame Vitamin, could be pure coincidence but it definitely had nothing to do with Vita sleep mode.

    On the note of saves. If you install a game, make sure you use a homebrew save dumper to backup your save before you delete it. Sony really wanted to push PS Plus and cloud saves so they made it so you deleting a game deletes your save

    You might want to remove that certain sure as it houses ROMs.

    There isn't a fix for it until a better dumping tool is released or the current ones are updated. Just save your games at every possible time and you should be fine.

    who doesn't it work for?

    they probably aren''t doing it properly.

    I'm not sure if you actually need to do anything to the clock though, since i'm always using a 12 hour one i didn't have to change it.

    The problem is ongoing.
    I even get this problem with FFX (cardridge). If i loaded a savestate with henkaku on, and go in to sleepmode for severall hours, after i turn on the vita, and try to load my (cardridge-)saves, theyre all corupt.

    well i only see one person saying it doesn't work on some vitas "apparently" with nothing to back that up.

    it worked perfectly for anyone i told to use the list.dat fix, who did it properly.

    if you aren't being effected then how could you have done something wrong?
