    Hi guys i was bored and saw some ppl complaining about that the fw reinstall dont restore sa0 , so modding sa0 is dangerous.
    So i made a small [1.11MB] mod to redirect sa0 reqs to ur0/ux0
    Currently moved fonts (both pvf and pgf) , dictionaries and hwr (handwriting) files (so basically all).
    And important apps (i.e safemode) use these in sa0-so ur safe
    Useful for fonts testing.

    https://mega.nz/#F!mwhFVb5b!NU8cUpfpkxn31ccU1E8KUQ

    Installation:
    Copy sa0:/data to desired location (i.e to ux0 so it will be ux0:/data)
    Install vpk
    Choose Install patch
    Choose your desired location
    The app will close automatically
    Reboot.

    Uninstallation:
    Uninstall via menu
    Reboot

    If you receive an error while switching just try again, if still-try other option.
    If you have a bootloop from i.e incompatible font just reinstall fw via safemode (the original sa0 is untouched so u can normally reinstall fw)

    Also compatible with psTV

    I know u worked hard on it, but today's morning many people had problems with it, so i made a quick solution.
    Also urs is better because u only hook into ?SceLibPvf? and i do the whole sa0 to ur0/ux0 so it takes more space.
    Definitely urs is better&safer for normal ppl

    I don't know where I screwed up, but I couldn't simply uninstall patch; it just gave some error when I clicked on it. :unsure:In the end, I simply reinstalled the firmware through safe mode.:DBut an interesting patch, I liked it, good job.
