    Playing legal backups does not generally save money. I think you are confusing backups with piracy. :)

    ...But yes, both are very possible (and even pretty trivial) now.

    Only requirements are a PSVita on 3.60 with HENkaku enabled and a large enough Memorycard to hold the games.
    Use Molecularshell or Vita shell (Molecular shell gets installed with HENkaku when you visit henkaku.xyz on your Vita) to FTP over Vita game VPKs and install them with it.

    YA. I already had henkaku installed but a while back everyone said it wasn't possible to play backups yet. Luckily I don't have to worry about my memory card since I have a 64gb somewhere this week (instantly ordered one, lol). Currently using a 8gb though, but that should be big enough for a 3.1gb install.

    Did this really need a thread? You really couldn't figure this out?

    To hijack a thread, is it normal to have to reinstall HENkaku everytime I start up my PSTV? otherwise the installed apps give an error. And half the time, the website gives an error. And after I've used one app and try to use another there's an error. But if I use the web, it installs successfully, I can use any app I want once.

    Also, are there any sites like that iso site for the 3ds, for playstation stuff? This question is far more relevant.

    Cannot answer your question about iso files per forum rules. Use Google.

    And yes HENkaku needs relaunched/reinstalled every reboot.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong.

    And huzzah :D I wasn't looking for a link so much as a "yeah, could be, I've heard rumor" or "nah, nothing really good out there". I'll take your reference to google as the same as saying the former.

    The fact that people liked your post is concerning. Piracy and backups go hand in hand. You're playing illegally acquired backups of someone else's copy. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Did this really need your reply? You really couldn't refrain from shitposting?

    Doesn't sound so nice when it's directed at you is it?
    Noob threads will always pop up, even with the most trivial of questions.
    All you should do is either help them or don't post.

    like someone else stated ,this is a very unnecessary and stupid thread.

    this is not even a noob thing .. when you already know that it is possible then why post it ,and the its gonna save me money .. =='

    it is just entirely not necessary..
