    Hey Guys im a litttle desperate. I just wanted to use instead of a 64 SD Card a 128GB on my Vita. I coipied all the Data from the 64GB Card to the 128 Card. After than i puit it in the system instead of the 64 original Card. Vita ask me if i want to formate the Card. I said no. Vita said Please wait one Moment for the system be ready. After than all Data away. pkgj, retroarch, mai and all other system files.

    Henkaku Settings are still in the Menu and before booting the system the hacked Logo come. So i think the System is hacked but the Vita cant read the data to show. Its not for me a Problem to lose all the data if i can create PGKj and the other Data.

    On the SD Card the Folder Structure is:


    ABM
    addcont_mai
    calender
    CustomBootplash
    customtheme
    data
    mai
    mms
    patch
    pkgj
    pkgj
    ptmp
    rePatch
    tai
    VitaShell
    mai_log


    Could you please tewll me what i should do to get pkgj and all the other important files like Vitashell on it.

    No i just put the folders from the one to the other sd card. The sd Card formatted in Fat 32 Standard size. But if i put the old SD Card on the system it dosent show it anymore. It just ask if i want to format it. If i said no, the system start but all the data dont shown. I think the Vita cant read the data anymore. But in the Settings Menu Henkakusettings are shown up and on booting it shows the Hacked Logo

    Those reasons are why it didn't work then.

    I think the sd2vita Plugin dosent work more so the Vita cant read any data. The only what shown is the Logo from the hack by booting the system, the firmeware 3.65 and Henkaku Settings, but all other stuff is gone. Im a newbie in this. The Vita was a gift and all i wanted is the 64 GB to 128Gb, i just thought if i copy and paste the folder to the other it just works. But after the vita ask me to format the Card, i said no, i think the system delete some Plugins and files so the system cant read my sd Card no more. Could you tell me what i should do to get all this working?
    I need Vitashell, PKGj and all the others

    Enso is installed to the system itself and does not rely on the memory card to show the logo or anything like that. Also, uhhh, you should format it as exFAT, I'm pretty sure.

    I'm still pretty sure your SD2Vita card must be formatted as exFAT and not FAT32, but I could be wrong here. It's been a while since I've checked the Vita world.

    But if i put the old SD Card in the system the Vita just ask the same if i want to format the card. If i said no the system shown without anything. So i think i must install h-encore and the other stuff new

    Yes this is right for my understanding you use Win32DiskImager for that. But, the other card that worked before just dont work anymore too on the system. Its like the system cant read the data anymore. So i think i had to install al the Data new. The good i have a 8GB Sony Vita Memorycard but i dont know which Programs

    on the h encore guiode on the internet it uses final h-encore but on a popular youtube guide on Youtube he uses the auto h-encore updater? Which is safer or better?

    One Question: If i want to install H-encore i just to need to open the PSN Store. But the Vita ask me to install the newest firmware update and i dont want do this. So what must i do to keep the 3.65 Firmware but use the devicemanager to load h-encore on it. I thin Enso is one the System because on every Boot the Molecule Symbol shows

    Please do the basic of basic first before trying to copy anything
    1. Download the zzBlank.img file for your microSD
    2. Use Win32 Disk Imager to write it to your microSD
    3. Quick format the microSD, exFat, default alloc, no label
    4. Enable view system and hidden file and copy ALL from the old card to new card

    There, done and working. Just be very very nice to the sd2vita adapter, the thing can break super easily. And by easily, i got 3 die/stop working/demand format when taking out the microSD, until i fed up, keep the microSD in adapter and copy by vitashell.
    Bad new is, your adapter is not working anymore.
