    Hi guys,

    I wonder if we can hack playsation tv to play all games we want from ps vita ?

    If we can, how does it work ? do we have to "install" each games iso or we load it from a usb drive or usb stick from pkg format or iso format ?

    thanks :)

    Thanks for the link :) I read tutorials about how to hack it but I still dont catch what to do after that. How we install games ? From a usb loader or... ?

    Since you're using a PSTV, you have to transfer them over via FTP.

    There will be support for external USB drives sometime in the near future.

    The PSTV only has 1GB internal storage, you have to use memory cards to upgrade it. Games are stored either on that 1GB storage, or the memory card if one is installed. Games are installed two ones. One is via a VPK, which is basically a .zip file that installs via a file manager like Molecular Shell or Vita Shell. The second way is via folder installs, you get the folder of the game you want to install, move it to your PSTV, then install it in Vita Shell.

    PS1 games can be loaded 2 ways at the moment, through native emulation via Retroarch which runs most games at a playable speed and more complex ones at slower speeds (as it's native emulation), or via ARK which runs in PSP mode and runs all games at 100% speeds, but with no sound.

    I highly suggest you read the noob thread if you're completely new.
