    ok perhaps it's already been asked but i couldn't find anything about that
    but did anyone tried (if it exist) to use a powered hdd plugged into female usb to fake sd so it could launch games?

    Hmmmm...., interesting question, however the hdd must be fat32 formatted.

    Well as the other one said it should work withuot problem as long as you have your SSD formatted in fat32. Also, don't use windows fomatter to do that.

    It won't work. The console will refuse to launch the executable if it isn't properly signed (i.e. if it's pirated).

    Edit - sorry, I misunderstood. I read the OP as 'launch fake games'. It might work to convert a HDD to SD, but it would require more than just an adapter cable.

    If I used windows formater to format my SD in FAT32 64 ko cluster, is it bad ?

    It's better to use external programs like partition master to do a FAT32 with 32kb cluster for it to work.
    I think he's talking about the new exploit. I mean the 5.5.x one.

    I read somewhere that 64kb clusters give faster loading times, is it false, should I stick to 32kb cluster ?

    Well does such adapter exist?...I mean, mobidapter aside, I haven't seen any adapters around..
    And if i remember correctly...mobi wasnt capable to do it, as it only supported HDDs with a size up to 64 GB?

    I remember someone had a thread about this here but I can't seem to find it.
    Would be great if it'd work.

    Yes there is a thread. I'm on my phone otherwise I'd search it for you real fast. I think it has "usb to sd" in the title.

    Wow look at that! Almost the exact same title as your thread. ;)

    I googled for a while now finding only websites stating that it's not possible.
