    I read that keeping a still image on the OLED screen for a long period of time is bad for the screen. So is there a way to copy files over FTP via Vitashell in the standby mode/turning the screen off?

    That is impossible atm but for now you can set your sleep time to 30 minutes in settings

    Actually I I cant remember how but you can edit the registry to never sleep. However If you have a vita 1000 (oled) it can cause screen burn in

    It isn't something you really need to worry about, there are algorithms in place to prevent image burn in by adjusting the voltage applied to the screen. In short I wouldn't recommend constantly leaving it on a static screen, but even a few hours here and there shouldn't cause you any issues.

    Heard you could upload the vpk's renamed as .mp4 via USB through QCMA and then rename them back to Vpk once its on the mc in vitashell. That would save some time leaving the screen on.

    I'm gonna try this. I was transferring files from my Android note 5 to my vita via ftp and it wouldn't transfer correctly. I would get like half of the file or it would freeze but once i set the vita to to 30mins standby it seemed to fix the problem

    This is kinda off topic but often, my Vitas wifi will disable itself during usage of molecular shell (not in the middle of a transfer) I haven't installed the third update of henkaku but was wondering why it does that. I did disable automatic updates and shortly after I noticed that it started happening. Could that be related?

    @jastolze probably related to power saving. go to options then power saving and look there for wi-fi option

    You went to best buy and took a look at a display model and were you surprised to see it screen burned?... A system that is on probably from 7 AM in the morning when managers arrive and turn on all the equipment until 10 PM at night when the store closes... Everyday...

    Not that you will be using the system from 7 AM - 10 PM non stop to be scared the same thing will happen you know...

    You can always looking press the ps button to bring up that sub menu thing. That won't affect transfers. Also I thought flow was working on a change for Vitashell and Vitamin that would allow the screen to go dark while not interrupting the transfers/dumps

    Don't worry about it, it takes hours before an image gets burnt in. You may get some image retention but that shouldn't stay too long.

    Now if you're planning on filling your 64gb mem card in one go, then yea, don't.

    VitaShell 0.91 apparently added my request.
    If you start copying files over ftp, the screen turns off after some minutes and vitashell still runs in the background.

    Awesome work TheFloW!
