I bought my vita like three days ago and while it's nice getting games for free via internet downloads and stuff I actually wanna check out what games are free over on the psn store

Thing is, I already have a ten hour save file for Odin's Sphere so restoring the vita is not an option.

Is there anyway to remove the psn account the old owner has and replace it with mine without reformatting the vita?

If the only thing you wanna hold on is your savegames you could use the Vita Save manager VPK to backup your save then restore it no ?

I used switchaccount and reformatted from there. Everything's all fine and working now.

Only problem I have is I can't get any trophies on any of my games anymore because they're registered to the old account. Any ideas how to get the trophies back?

I tried backing up the save files then deleting the in game saves on my vita and then restoring the same save files again with the back ups but they don't work. I still get the you can't earn trophies message.

I also tried copying just the .dat files and leaving sec_sys alone but the save comes off as corrupted.

You won't be able to transfer the trophies, trophies are locked per account so you can't transfer them or anything. You could try hacking them in, but doing so would potentially result in a ban if you tried syncing them to PSN.

As for the save, Vita Save Manager might be able to pull the original save out and restore it to your new account assuming you're using Henkaku https://github.com/d3m3vilurr/vita-savemgr/releases

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Message cursor*

  • LinkmstrYT @ LinkmstrYT:
    I'm just happy that this new site layout works well on mobile. Ads don't annoy me as I scroll pages. Before, ads would pop up and change so often that it messes with me browsing through pages in the previous, old layout.
  • PeeJay Bonobo @ PeeJay Bonobo:
    I gotta check it out on mobile sometime.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Yeah super nice additions added seems to catch more attention also so it isn't just me Veho and psi making fools of ourselves :yay:
  • PeeJay Bonobo @ PeeJay Bonobo:
    Very good to hear.
  • PeeJay Bonobo @ PeeJay Bonobo:
    So far, I'm liking the addition of a general chat so I can say Hi to my fellow Tempers.
  • PeeJay Bonobo @ PeeJay Bonobo:
    I wonder if that works on mobile?
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Seems to be working nice on mobile just a little clunky but like Costello said they got bugs to work out
  • PeeJay Bonobo @ PeeJay Bonobo:
    Of course.
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Meh, I'd rather go back to v7.
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Though I do wonder what v9's gonna be like, eventually...
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    We hate change but we adapt
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    ^ More like "forced to" adapt, honestly.
  • vincentx77 @ vincentx77:
    So we have chat now?
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    It's free service with knowledgeable people can't really complain if they try to improve their site
  • R @ rjwboys2:
    i rather they update then keep useing older software that could have security risks
  • MarioSilva @ MarioSilva:
    I like the new design
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Hopefully they fix the lag issues soon; that's the biggest issue with this update.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Not much lag on my end
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Not on the home page, but in threads? Typing is painfully slow, and my fans start going.
