    Fully restores HP and SP after every battle.
    In HF, it restores SP, then it gets halved, so you start every battle at 1/2 sp.

    i guess that number the game keeps track of will be in the save somewhere... but hard to find!
    if we changed it to the right number(just before 200, or 250, i forget), then sure i guess with one battle you could unlock it.
    but yeah it's hard to find in the save because we can't see exactly how many 'lines' rise has said.

    Well assuming that the trophy counts different lines it should save some ID of every line spoken.

    Awesome work, I have been sleeping on the Vita's progress ^_^"

    Question, so I have to be on a custom firmware or app to grab the save off of a PSTV memory card ?

    The method used to decrypt games does not work if P4G is backed up with Vitamin.

    On the last step when opening P4G and Molecular shell is supposed to open, P4G opens instead.

    Could this in theory be used to transfer a USA to JPN save?

    Are you trying to dump the save? Did you paste the Molecular shell files into the correct patch folder (PCSE00120)?

    this would only change the stats and stuff... so, it's not what you want.

    i am sure you can manually compare the difference between the regions, and make your save the region you want. it might be so simple, just a letter change etc.

    maybe nothing :)

    Yes, I am trying to dump the save. I copied molecular folder to ux0 patch & renamed it to PCSE00120.

    Is your P4G the NA version?

    I have this same issue and came here for an answer. It seems that backed up version doesn't look in the patch folder.

    Racking my brain trying to figure out a workaround. Patches in general don't do well with Vitamin files.

    Edit: So it seems that savedata is at ux0:/user/00/savedata/, but still no way to decrypt as you cannot run two applications at once (game + Vitashell).

    try without the patch and just put the shell in the main app.

    i think someone on reddit said it works.

    If it stops responding, the save is probably still encrypted. You can check on that by opening it in HxD and seeing if the data is a bunch of garbled junk.
    I don't know what to do about vitamin save data since this tool was intended for the retail/digital version, not pirated versions.

    You just need to be on 3.60 firmware with any type of Vita system. Then go to henkaku.xyz in your Vita browser and follow the instructions.
    The rest of the method is explained in my video at the end of the first post of the thread.

    Had the same issue just back up the persona eboot from ux0:/app/"your persona game ID" and put the molecule eboot in there instead, run persona and molecule will boot and the save is then decrypted, Hope this helps
