    Hello, I purchased a PS Vita last Sunday and it didn't came with a memory card :( so I was able to install henkaku, and most of it's components maidump, vitashell, adrenaline, and retroarch, now I purchased a 32 GB memory card, and my question is that what will happen if I insert the memory card on my vita? Will the contents from my 1GB internal transfer to the 32GB memory card because I know when you use a memory card you won't be able to use the internal anymore. Please help.

    The vita will ask if you want to transfer it to the card

    Will all the files be transferred, including my apps and game (Shovel Knight)?

    I inserted the card and it did transferred my files, my only question now is where is my 1GB? I thought it will be added on my other 1.5 GB but I guess now, too bad, it just gone...

    The 1GB internal storage simply cannot be used while using a card.

    I forgot
    Actually, possibly with the next update of VitaShell (or, I guess, you could probably compile it yourself) mounting that 1GB internal storage should be possible while using a memory card. hyln9 made a commit that added "imc0" mounting to both VitaShell and Adrenaline. So that's nice.
