    i heard that you can use the backup thing and then restore...
    didn't seen anywhere you had to reset the thing..

    I forgot
    You don't need to reset, just do a complete backup with the Content Manager and QCMA, then swap the cards and restore.

    You could also move everything over via USB with VitaShell and restore it that way, too, which should work I believe.

    The usb transfer with VitaShell worked for me, without any issue. Just rebuild the database starting your vita on safe mode and you are good!
