    that's probably in the guide somewhere. I managed to hack my system without a guide, since I was on enso 365 where the files are vs0. just copy and paste everything to your computer using a usb connection in vita shell. make sure operating system and hidden folders are visible by going into folder options before copying. after that, copy and paste the content on to a micro sd card, add the correct path to the plugin under kernel in the config.txt (yamt imo is the best option to use). and, that's pretty much it. you may have to use zzblank.img first, but afaik, that's only to clear the sd card of all partitions, since I think the vita can only read the primary one.

    Damn this thing is real good. Is there a way to backup download games? Because if my memory card gets corrupted so I can just install backup games. Also how do I Backup save data?

    now that I looked, it may be possible to do that with vita shell, but I've never used vita shell for that purpose.
