    I hope he makes a version without the header pins and with a ribbon to stick the microSD adapter on the back of the Vita.

    You'll have to make two versions, 1000 series and 2000 series. but the better idea would making the board elongated with data ribbons running to each port and a pass through adapter on the bottom for both models in fact for the 1000 series the pass-through can convert the port to micro-USB. Both models secure to the systems via the wrist-strap holes on the consoles. maybe even a bonus with the extra space acting as a extended battery. it would then make the adapter full on vita upgrade and a hot ticket item for the Vita that would sell out fast and would be good for both home-brewers and legit players. Call it by a silly name, the vita-vista.

    Looking at the design, it wouldn't be too hard to make, anyone with PCB building knowledge could do it...

    Only problem I see, is it won't be a flush fit obviously.

    As for PSTV. Simple, a dock with ports sd, micro sd, sata enclosure, microusb, usb. And a switch to change between media. Same principle an upgrade for homebrew and legit. Call it the PSTV+.

    Lot better to actually follow the progress via RichDevX's twitter. He's working on a lot of cool things!

    What a coincidence. Earlier today I thought why not make a microSD card adapter for the Vita and here we go, a thread about exactly this :creep:

    Hope this will come through, got a spare 128gb micro SD laying around unused new in packaging.
    A lot better than buying the overpriced 64GB memory card.

    Everyone who liked the initial tweet and a few other people's twitter handles (myself included) were added to the mock-up of the PCB. It looks like something he's done before with other boards.
