    I wanted to know if this was possible since I have a PSTV and in the process of buying a Vita and just wondering how easy it was to use on both since obviously I plan on using it to run Henkaku and be able to play games while home then take the memory card to go. Also can someone point me to a guide on how to install Henkaku on the Vita?

    If you use the same account on both it won't be a problem. The only issue is that you'll need to copy app.db to the new Vita for all your bubbles to show up.

    There's actually another problem even if you use the same account, the consoles will check for firmware versions, so unless both systems are on the same version (probably the case for those who use both for HENkaku) you'll need to remove the file that registers the account and version used last on the memory card (forgot what the file was named).

    Same account and firmware and you can swap back and forth without any issue.

    Ran into some issues. When I swap it always tells me that a memory card has been removed and I have to restart the console.

    As with any modern console, you obviously need to turn off the Vita to remove the mem card safely...

    This really means I have to turn off both then switch and reinstall Henkaku each time is my point

    Well, yes, but is that really a problem? Even admitting you don't have Internet connexion (well, I don't think you'll be using your PSTV anywhere else than your home), the offline installer exists, and installing HENkaku takes less than 30 seconds... :unsure:

    Also considering most people are using the website I wouldn't have known about that method....

    When are you getting that error? When you put the memory card in the new Vita?
