After loading Henkaku on my Vita, I decided to order a PSTV on ebay. I'm wondering (in case there is an update before I recieve it) If I can manually update it to 3.60 with qmca or something. I have no idea what firmware it is shipping with. Also, as I only have one memory card, is there a way to set up both the TV and vita as "clone" systems so that the one memory card works in both? (I did something similar with some of my 3DS's)
Thanks for any insight!

Regarding the memory cards, my Vita was on 3.30 and my PSTV on 3.60, I could not use the memory card I had in the PSTV on my Vita, it prompted me to update to the latest FW first. Both systems were connected to the same PSN as well.

The memecards have a file called "id.dat" on their root, which contains some info on the card, its PSN account and FW version.
If you try to put it into a standard Vita/PSTV with a different PSN account or lower FW version it'll yell at you.

Either delete "ux0:id.dat" with FTP/MolecularShell, or use SMOKE's tool that does the same automatically.
After you remove it and shut down you can put it in any Vita you like.
