    Everyone's favourite Vita scene hero, Yifanlu, is creating what most users have been dreaming of. A micro SD adapter for the PS Vita! However, this will be specifically limited to ONLY the 3G OLED models. This works by replacing the 3G modem with an adapter. If you want to get a hold of a 3G Vita, I'd advise getting one soon before the prices rise. The "Early Bird" donation perk gives you a finished board for $20. I would imagine the price to be similar to this when it is released.

    Awesome news but damn, only working for the 3g model, that's a bummer, would need to hunt one of those down.

    This is awesome, I received my 3G OLED vita for the low price of modding someone's N3DS and giving them a 32GB SD card. He said he never used it and then just handed it to me.

    EDIT: No more early bird units available. :cry:

    More updates.

    100 units are being made and there are 114 backers. This means they are already sold out.

    Perhaps you could just tear out that oh-so-random socket the vitas never use to make space on other hardware revisions?

    It's not about space, it's about connecting it to the motherboard. I'm guessing that the Slim and 1000 models don't have the mini-PCIe interface that's used for the 3G modem.

    I assume a wifi+3g model is compatible too and not just a bog standard 3G only version (cannot see any other differences than just an extra Wifi chip.

    Mine is a OLED Wifi+3G PCH-1103 and it says PCH-110X in that source link.

    $5

    USD

    + Shipping
    Samples
    Each prototype run will result in ~10 boards, but I only need one or two to test with. At the end, I will send away all the boards I have at random. You could get a breakout board used in development or a blank psvsd board or one with a couple of components on it as a test. None of these will work as-is if inserted into a Vita.
    Items included:
    • Prototype board
    6 out of 35 claimed
    Ships Worldwide
    Estimated August 2017

    The chinese black market will jump this and release a clone no doubt. There is some serious money to be made on this after giving SONY the middle finger on their extortionate cards.

    Yeah, it's cuz they used to call them just "3G models" hah. Would be a pretty poor design choice to just go with a locked (in the US anyways) 3G only version.
