Hi!
I own a PSvita (1000 model, 3.73fw) since, well, years... but I never felt the urge to hack it. Until now.
The fact is that I am using an european account as my main, but I do need to buy and play a game from the US store (I do own a US account as well).
I know that I need to wipe my ps vita memory in order to link the console to another account, and that I need to redo that every single time I need to switch accounts (why did you do that Sony? :'( duh...).

Since I am a lazy man I don't really want to do that.
So I wonder if there is a SAFE (= ban free) way to switch accounts without ereasing the memory every single time. I don't mind unlocking trophies on my main (even tho because the game is a PSP one, so it doesn't have trophies at all), I just want to skip the "broh, delete everything" step.

Also, I am totally new to the Vita modding scene, so I seriously need some help about what I need to to in order to achieve my goal... I mean, step by step like u're talking to a 5yo lol (well actually I'm not SO desperate, but still...).

What concerns me is to being banned because, idk, my console is linked to two different accounts at the same time (?), because of course I want to be able to go online in a legit way in order to access the store etc.

Thanks in advance ;)

I understand what you mean. :)

Just do a backup of all your files (including saves) and follow THE guide! Read everything and follow each step carefully and you will succeed. Avoid watching YouTube videos. This guide has everything you need. Just shout if you need any help. :teach:

I ended up installing h-encore, the homebrew browser store and from there the accaount manager. It works flawlessly.

I just got stuck because I have to buy a psn card for the game I want :'(

Anyway, thanks for the guide ;)

p.s. I have to reinstall HENkaku every time I reboot the console or just to boot h-encore and then exit?

Did you downgrade your console as it says on step 4 from the guide? If not, you need to finish the guide. Since your console was on OFW 3.73, you had to install h-encore in order to run firmware. However, you can downgrade your console and end up with 3.60 Ensō HENkaku. That's what I've done to mine, that was also on OFW 3.73 when I've hacked it. Follow the guide until the very end in order to have the CFW properly installed without having to run h-encore on reboot all the time. :teach:
