    Can anyone explain the exact steps to upgrade from PKGi to PKGj?

    Can the two applications co-exist or is it a case of one or the other?

    Do I need to uninstall PKGi and install PKGj?

    They can be installed at the same time, but not really usable (since the configuration file is shared between them)

    So it's indeed ideal to remove PKGI first (both the app and its folder in ux0), then install and configure PKGJ fresh

    Please be more specific about the changes required to migrate from PKGi to PKGj. Please do not simply link to the readme file for PKGj because it does not include the detail required to confidently upgrade.

    It does... at least, as long as you understand that the configuration file is a non-functional sample (since some sites, including this one, are prudish about linking to a list of titlekeys)

    But, simply uninstall pgki (like any other app: from Content Manager or by pressing triangle on the bubbles screen), delete the contents of the ux0:pkgi folder (using vitashell directly, USB mass storage, or FTP), then follow the instructions you can find on said titlekey website (the same you probably used for PKGI):
    Untitled.

    Yes, there are some inconsistencies (like using the name of pkgi when it's actually pkgj) but the steps are accurate
