    Hi, I recently got an SD2Vita and followed a guide to configure it properly. Most things are as seamless as they were before but now I cannot play any PSM games.

    When I rebuilt the database, the psm games I'd moved from my uma0 original memory card to ux0 sd2vita were all gone. Copying it back and rebuilding database results in psm game icons showing but all giving error.

    From what I've surmised I think the problem might be because the sd2vita doesn't read on boot till h-encore (I'm on 3.68) is activated. Therefore psm rebuilding can't happen on boot and it can't be Live Arena refreshed through Vita Shell. Therefore PSM isn't installed on the SD2Vita at all despite the files being in the appropriate folders so I have no way of installing it. Uma0 also probably does not have enough privileges to play PSM games hence the double issue here.

    Also of note is that change go SD2Vita deleted my activation date files which I didn't have backups of. I activated games online officially but activating PSM gives me a DNS error (DNS is already set to Henkaku's DNS though). So currently my PSM license is both missing and I can't access games to recover it.

    Extra information:
    - I'm on 3.68 h-encore
    - Everything else works fine, including Adrenaline, installing games from Pkgj, accessing official psn

    If anyone can help me here I'd really appreciate it.

    UPDATE: I ended up deleting the runtime on the Vita so I can install it afresh officially (last time I dumped the contents and refreshed database). When I did the DNS worked this time and showed me that there's a 2.01 update to download. But when I clicked yes if gives me "Could not download (C2-13242-2)"

    Sorry not to help you, but why don’t You downgrade to 3.65 anos start over with Enso and coldboot? Maybe it solve your troubles too.

    Thank you for responding. I ended up downgrading last night, I was afraid to do so because I'm a bit technologically inept and I bought it already hacked on 3.68, but I followed a tutorial from Tech James and the process was easy. Things are going smooth so far and now all psm games are showing again.
