Hi everyone,

I open a new thread because I find mostly discussions and guides for the PSV and his storage structure and not for PS TV and searches haven't helped me.

I just bought a PS TV without a memory card. I installed Henkaku ENSO and the basic plugins just to see if everything worked properly.

Now, before continuing any further, I have to decide whether to opt for a USB Drive or use an SD2Vita. At first I was convinced of using the USB drive but actually I thought that the USB port would be more convenient for me to be able to connect the controller for charging, connect future gamepads, etc. As against SD2VITA, from what I could read it is very fragile and more subject to reading errors.

At this point I ask you for advice, asking you if the procedure for the two choices is also right. (The lines with ??? are those where I am uncertain)

  1. USB Storage + USBMC
    1. Format in exFat 32/64kb
    2. Install Usbmc on PS TV
    3. ??? I need to open again usbmc and install the USB Drive as a memory card ???
  1. SD2VITA + StorageMgr
    1. Download zzblank.img and write it on Microsd (formatted in exFat 32/64kb)
    2. Make a backup of all ux0 (or INT???)
    3. Install StorageMgr with this storage_config.txt:
      1. ??? MCD=uma0 (or removed because I have no MC) ???
      2. INT=imc0
      3. GCD=ux0
      4. ???UMA=grw0 or UMA=uma0 (so I can use in the future an external USB Drive?) ???
    4. Copy the backup on microsd
    5. Put SD2Vita inside PS TV
And then the noob’s questions:

  1. In order to install the PSP and PSX backups on the SD2VITA, I just need to open the Adrenaline configuration menu and select SD2VITA (ux0) as the location to load things from?

  2. In case of a random reboot or wrong loading / mounting from SD2VITA or if the adapter or microsd dies, I will still have access to the custom firmware, Vitashell etc.? In case there is a way to avoid losing everything and save the CFW (I read about a H-encore bubble to backup with QCMA)?

Thanks a lot

For the USB solution I use this behind the PSVITA TV ..it allows me to plug the a 256 GB usb storage drive and I can still sync nd charge two controllers.

# main is a special titleid for SceShell

*NPXS10015
# this is for modifying the version string
ur0:tai/henkaku.suprx

*NPXS10016
# this is for modifying the version string in settings widget

(I have this config set up in both uro and uxo folders)

best PSTV setup in my opinion is; SD2Vita set as ux0 for Vita games, with USB drive in a 4 port usb hub set as uma0 for PS1/PSP games
