    Hey guys, I own quite a bit of physical releases of Vita games and I was wondering if I could install decrypted DLC to use them on the cartridge version?

    My memory card is currently full and have no space to place these backups decrypted.

    Would that be possible at all?

    Buy a new card. The cartridges are read-only.

    You could use the ur0 partition to store some files

    To actually answer your question, no, you can't use pirated DLC/Updates with cartridges. This is because legit cart games look for legitimately owned DLC, and since decrypted games are, obviously, not "owned" by you they won't show up for the cartridge.

    You can dump your cartridge game and install it using maidumptool and then you can use the dlc if you want check the dlc out.
