    You can install vpk with no double space (qcma or ftp) and a lot faster than normal vpk install:
    Needed:
    Maidump ENG: https://github.com/LioMajor/MaiDumpToolEN/releases
    qcma or ftp client
    archive(for zip)
    time
    How it goes:
    Firs install the maidump. Open it and close.
    Rename the vpk file to .zip,unpack it to one folder. Search for your game ID (ex.PCSE00670) end rename this directory you created to this id.
    Copy this file to your psvita with your favoufite method (for qcma: download a save file for psp game - best gta lcs/vcs.Unpack & copy it to PSavedata directory (check in qcma) and create (in this dir) a dir called vpk. Copy our game dir into it.Connect PSVITA to pc and copy this save by data manager.)

    In VitaShell copy the GameDir (in qcma way is in ux0/pspemu/savedata/SAVEID/vpk) to ux0/mai.
    Start Maidumptool select install game from dir,install game and after 5-30sec you can play it.

    Sorry for my bad ENGLISH

    Then you can use maidump to install vitamin dumps. Interesting.
    We only need now vitamanager recognizing and using mai to transform all vpk to dir format.

    So with maidump we dont need double space? So when install game the app move the files from mai folder to right location.
    This is good to know...

    Actually, you don't even need to use Maidump now. You can directly install mai folders with Vitashell(above v1.4). Just select the folder containing the game eboot and check the menus for 'install folder'

    Also, you can use winrar to unzip your vpks to directories. Rename vpk to rar or zip and extract.
