    Hey all. With the MLTHaKu domain seemingly being taken up by some redirect for about a week now, I'm curious to know if there are any alternatives for getting SD2VITA working without an official memory card. I don't mind waiting to see if the site comes back, I just figured I'd ask and see in the meantime. I've checked various caching services, and they have the site itself but unfortunately don't have the payload cached as well. That's as close as I've gotten. I've already got 3.60 Enso installed if it matters.

    Update: The issue has been resolved. A key part I missed that may have led to my problems was that my Enso was inactive due to a system restore. For anyone encountering similar issues, the process I used to get it back up and running was as such:
    - Make sure your SD card is formatted as such: https://vita.hacks.guide/storage-format-(windows)
    - Launch Yoti's exploit on your Vita, which attempts to mount the SD2VITA and install molecularShell: vitawiki.xyz/tf/ (Check here for more details)
    - If molecularShell fails to install (try it a couple times, at least), download Qcma, connect your Vita, and create a system backup via your Vita's Content Manager
    - Use this software to install VitaShell directly to your Vita backup (VitaShell is included in the APP's button at the bottom left): https://github.com/MRGhidini/Psvimgtools-Easy-FrontEnd
    - Run the exploit again if you rebooted, and connect your Vita to your PC again.
    - Go to Copy Content, From PC to PSVita, Applications, and VitaShell should appear in the list.
    - Copy it to your Vita. It said it failed for me, but it still successfully transferred the application.
    - Enable unsafe homebrew, launch VitaShell, and install the enso installer vpk.
    - Launch it and use the Square button to re-enable enso on boot.

    ...and that should be it. I'm no master of Vita hacking, so please be cautious and favor the guides by the creators of these tools to mine at each step if you decide to try this. I'm just posting this here for anyone who may wind up in a similar situation, however specific it may be.

    You don't need MLThaku after installing ensō.

    Is that so? I'm not sure how to get SD2VITA working in that case. Any guide I found for setting it up requires FTP, but I lost access to MolecularShell with the death of my memory card. I got an SD2VITA with the intent of replacing it.

    Edit: Just saw your post in the other thread, will give it a shot. Thanks.

    Edit 2: Worked like a charm, but doesn't seem to install molecularShell properly.

    I am also stuck without sd2vita support and no original memory card after messing up the config.txt file. I tried these, vitawiki never actually installs molecular (henkaku xyz tries to, but fails)
    When restoring vitashell from qcma, I get an error about not being able to restore other user's applications (I only used 1 user in the whole process) and the application doesnt show on the live area. Hope we can get mlthaku back soon...

    You're better off using the YAMT exploit.
