    Would this or anything else up to now. Allow me to change memory cards, or even better yet, without changing memory cards on the same one and without format. So i can switch between my asia PSN account /memory card, and my EU PSN memory card?

    Input needed here. there was a solution earlier but it stopped working because of the 3.61 update.. so now i ask again with some time passed...

    Yes metroid, thank you for replying. I have tried this. and like i said this won't work anymore because of the 3.61 update. if you readupon the topic.
    I got an error when doing this.
    Thats why i linked this tutorial above, but not sure if this will allow me to do what i want?

    So you have a 3.61 Vita which you want to be able to swap between several memory cards without formatting?

    Do you have a 3.60 Vita additionally?

    Yes i have one 3.61 vita with 64GB card with lots of digitals on it.
    2nd Vita is 3.60 has a 16 GB Asia PSN + savegame on it. The savegame has to work aswell when switching or having 2 accounts on 1 memory card, because lots of hours in it. It gets even trickier because i want the DLC for this game aswell (deadoralive xtreme 3) which i would need to update game and vita for.
    But perhaps i can manage a way where i could do both.. and switch cards if I really wanted to play with the DLC on the updated vita. and if i wanted to play the other games+Homebrew on it, put it in the not updated vita.

    Im getting a new 64 GB card in mail soon, and i would love to transfer over the Asia account+ savegame, and then download my normal games from my EU account.

    My brain/head is going haywire on how to achieve this.. maybe not anyone knows yet..

    Well you can't have multiple accounts on one Vita, but you can just swap memory cards happily.

    Restore your Vita and choose not to format the memory card or deactivate your console. Remove the old memory card. Log in with the account of the new memory card. Insert the new memory card.

    Well normally no. But this accountswitcher SEEMED to do this. but it didnt work anymore. but now i found out there is an update for it by the link u send me it now works in conjunction with vita-activator by zombie...but i have no idea if it works and how it will work exactly..

    Yes that would work. thats the way i have been doing it, but its a drag to be honest, rebooting the vita, losing the system settings and henkaku hack again, and my homescreen gets scrambled each time and so on its just ardeous.
    Thats why im looking for a way that doesnt require a restore. and i would still be able to use the rest of my space of that memory card for something else.. ( i don't have any other asia psn games.. so the rest of the memory card is unused)
