On the PSTV, holding the L button at start is not as easy.

I can't get it to work with a Dualshock 4, only Dualshock 3 and Sixaxis.

Controller has to be wired to the PSTV.

Sorry, I haven't tried a hard drive mod with PSTV yet so I can't guide you further on that.

Once you have started without plugins, you can use VitaShell in ur0 tai to edit the storage manager config text.

The vita got recovery mode. Hold Powerbutton for 30sec or longer. See this threat

Use this tutorial for your vita:
https://vita.hacks.guide

Normaly The taifolder on the main partition needs to copied your desired drive. And the tai- folder inside the vita needs to be deleted or better renamed.
Then u need to configure the different Drives with a manager and activate the pluged in usb drive in Vitashell.

I can confirm (just tested), recovery works with PSTV.

The dualshock 4 works with recovery mode, still needs to be connected via USB cord.

That would allow a full system restore.

I allready try recovery mode, but when I select rebuild database nothing happen, still on boot loop, Didn´t try other option because I don´t want to lose my hack (enso), I have an official sony memory card that when is inserted have vitashell.

restoring the system will not remove enso, but it will delete your account and the contents of the tai folder. it's designed this way in case of catastrophic problems like yours.

it will rebuild them though. if you could at least get into the livearea, you could go into henkaku settings and recreate the config.txt or rather create a new one.

if you system restore, remove the usb device in case it's been read as ux0 but not working. I think it will try to format it iirc.

ok, so I make a restore after boot in safe mode, should I keep inserted my memory card? (it has vitashell on it)?

once you're done, shut down the system when you go through initial setup, then insert the memory card and see if it rebuilds the database. also check if you henkaku settings in system settings.

I try that and see, hope to get it back on track and to manage to use my external HDD (after), I got a 200gb retro stuff that is waiting but still can´t make it to work (external hdd)

thanks!
Just checking a few things.

Your hard drive is powered with it's own power adapter?

Formatted to exFat?

The drive has been imaged with zzblank.img?

    it's better to learn on your own, it goes much faster than the snail pace they teach you at in school

  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    with that all your assembler base will actually work
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    even on embedded systems, without a damned debugger
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Coto have you tried -Ofast btw? ;)
