    Hi all,

    N00b issue.

    Not too long ago (last week) I updated Retroarch to 1.6.3 only to find that we're already on 1.6.4.

    Ive tried searching but couldn't find the specific answer I am looking for, at least not for Vita:

    How does one update (the fastest way) to the latest version on Vita? I have been deleting everything and reinstalling the VPK (one in all) from scratch but like that I lose configurations, saves etc. I know on PC one can overwrite certain files and it's done but on Vita I just can't just figure it out :blush::blush::blush::blush:

    Urmm ok - I wanted to avoid that as I will have to fiddle around with space as the 16GB mem is full and the all in one VPK is "big". No worries. Thanks!! And goddamn I'm blind, I looked everywhere (well, apparently not) on their site :shy::shy::shy::shy:


    EDIT: I still can't find the HOW TO on their site:rofl2::rofl2::rofl2:

    If you have to avoid that you just could rename/move your config folder then delete the old RA version, install the new RA version, delete the new config folder and then rename/move your old config folder to the original name/position again (in exactly that order).

    And save states and save files... nah too much hassle. Done what was said above, had to delete a PSP game in the process...No big deal :)

    dude, uncompress the vpk
    and move (and replace) from your PC to the Vita, every elf you want and the eboot.bin

    that's all
