    I was wondering if I got a bigger card if I could easily copy all stuff from one card to another through FTP. Maybe with memcardswapper help?

    1) Comnect to QCMA.
    2) Make a full backup.
    3) Restore backup on new memory card.
    4) ???
    5) Profit

    Same processs, you connect to QCMA over wifi using VitaUpdateBlocker and do the exact same thing.

    Making a full backup will copy everything the way you have it right now, so yes, when you move into the bigger card all your games, apps, homebrews and roms will be the way you had them before.

    That's because the newest version of HENkaku spoofs the firmware but even Yifan said that is only a matter of time until Sony patches it again.

    So it's better for people to use VitaUpdateBlocker and get to know it than use a temporary solution that will break in a few days and then wonder why it stopped working out of nowhere.

    I think you should just connect to PSN to download what you need now that HENkaku has PSN access.

    Sony will probably just patch the trick used to go online and move on.
