    I have a 3G model Vita on firmware 3.36

    I am following the instructions here:
    http://wololo.net/2015/07/19/how-to-install-psm-dev-for-unity-on-ps-vita-firmware-3-20-and-above/

    I just want to get my Vita and PC ready for now in case Rejuvinate ever amounts to anything

    But I wanted to ask, does anyone know if these instructions will corrupt/delete any of the information currently on my Vita? I have a lot of stuff on there.

    Do I have to backup my Vita then restore from the Content Manager? Or can I send that Dev thing to it without having to "merge" it with the rest of my files?

    Also, I don't understand the e-mail step. When I open it in Thunderbird, it's already addressed to a test address at gmail, how do I modify it to send it to myself?

    And finally, what if I don't have a game that needs an update?

    No, it won't corrupt any data as far as I'm aware. I've installed it too many times :P and it hasn't deleted or corrupted a single thing! :)

    I tried that but it seemed to mess up the attachments and the other contents of the e-mail

    It seems to just toss the attachments in there and not in the order or with the text of the original e-mail.

    When you email it to your Vita, can you still click the attachments?

    Finally got it after much issues. I do have one last question though, since I tricked it into installing by using the update of a cartridge game I had just bought (to be specific, I used Freedom Wars), can I now update said game normally, or can I not install the original game's update it anymore?
