SD2VITA ( I'm DIY ing a PS Vita Micro SD adapter)

Recommended Posts

I've ordered the custom PCB and am waiting for the micro sd slots to arrive.

Also, Yes. They do let you use a regular micro sd card via your game card slot instead of those shitty sony memcards.

 

 

If you're lucky enough to be in the US, You can order pre made ones from modsiah here :

If you're in Europe, I can ship a few (Once I get and test mine) as long as you're an active member on here. It costs about 10 euros I think.

I am a founder for the internal adapter of Yifan Lu but this one is nice for those with a Wi-Fi model.

PM me when you got one in :thehe:

Sure, I was planning to send you one regardless.:hoho: And yeah most people I know don't have a 3G vita, I was really disappointed when I heard about the internal one at first. :Kannanom:

I still can't believe though that Sony is giving us all this trouble just because they decided to be greedy ***ks.:cuterage:

True that.

 

I just got mine ordered a few days ago.

Can't wait to actually has some space to put the games to. Even with 16gb its pretty bothersome sometimes.

Following. I only have an 8gb card. I refuse to spend stupid money on Sony's cards. Looking forward to updates

Yep they are greedy we will be just fueling them if we don't raise voice on them selling memory cards at 100's of dollars.

Welcome Back:hi:

Thanks! :FeelsBirthdayMan:

 

I got one I ordered from ebay earlier this week, and so far the adapter has been nice.

Main thing to remember is to not plug it in the wrong way. I had to go check which way to insert it from a game cartridge:kawaiimad:

Got mine a little while ago (from a friend on a french forum that make it himself) now you can easily find CG2SD adapter on many commercial places (like ebay or even AliExpress). It can now be really cheap cause Chinese entered the dance. Anyway if you know about shop on AliExpress, some are just factory store that produce it themself and it's not necessarily bad quality !

      Hello all!
      Today we're going to be putting together your new and shiny SD2Vita Adapter!
      The end goal, is to have your SD2Vita MicroSD Card mount to ux0 at boot, and your Vita card mount as uma0.
       
      Getting Started
      First, we need a couple of things before we get started.
      SD2Vita Adapter from somewhere. I personally got mine from Srident (Please login or register to see this link. ) a REAL Micro SD Card (Please login or register to see this link. ) Vita (Slim or Phat) Running 3.60 Enso (Please login or register to see this link. ) Micro USB to USB Adapter FTP Client (WinSCP/Filezilla, I personally use Filezilla) Win32 Disk Imager Driver for SD2Vita (Please login or register to see this link. ) a zzBlank Image You can get Win32 Disk Imager, and zzBlank from Please login or register to see this link.  link. First Steps
      Now that you've gathered the required materials, you now need to put them all together!
      First, Open MolecularShell or VitaShell on your Vita, and FTP over EVERYTHING from ux0. Every folder, every file, every single thing. The reason this is important, and in this tutorial, you'll be "replacing" your Vita Card with SD2Vita, and it'll be using it as it's core storage. So if you miss files, it can cause issues later down the road.
      Once all files have been copied to a safe space on your desktop, MAKE SURE nothing got missed. FileZilla in my case would stop ~20 minutes into the X-Fer, and I had to manually do some work. Take your time with this, it's worth the time!
      Now wait, couldn't I just use VitaShell or MolecularShell and use USB to move things? It's much Faster! - I'm glad you asked! The answer is NO. VitaShell does not show all the files, only FTP does, and you need EVERY FILE.
      Next Step, is to move your "ux0:tai/" folder over to "ur0:tai" - Change all of your plugins to ur0, like so: 
      Next, move your gamesd.skprx file to "ur0:tai/" and add it to config.txt under *KERNEL, like so:
      Now, reboot your Vita! You should see the Molecular Boot Logo, and it should take your to the LiveArea/Lock Screen. If it hangs on the Molecular Icon, hold the Power Button for 30 seconds, hold the "L" Trigger, and restart it via the menu that comes up, and make sure everything looks correct and try again!
      You've now successfully gotten the drivers for SD2Vita installed and working. Now to getting the SD Card setup!
       
      Imaging/Setting up the MicroSD Card
      First, plug in your MicroSD to USB with your MicroSD Card you've tested, and make sure it shows up. Do not start to move things over, we still have to format it.
      Open WinDisk Imager and load the zzBlank Image like so:  
      The path will be different for each person and where you've saved it.
      Press Write and wait until it's done.
      Unplug the USB Adapter, and plug it back in. Windows will say it needs to be formatted, hit "Format" - Make sure you follow this very carefully
      exFAT as File System Default Allocation Unit Size LEAVE VOLUME LABEL AS BLANK Click Format and wait until it's done And NOW you can move over all of the files you copied from ux0 back to the MicroSD Card.
      Once it's done, unmount the USB Adapter, turn your Vita OFF, put your MicroSD Card into the SD2Vita, and plug it in, it should NOT push against any springs, or have any resistance, it'll just slide in. You might have to give it a little wiggle, but it'll fit.
      After that, turn on the Vita and watch the Game Cart LED (Orange LED by where you put your SD2VITA) You should see it light up and flashing, that's a good sign!
      It should boot, it might say "Rebuilding Database" this is fine, let it finish and load into the LiveArea.
      Open VitaShell, and it should look (Depending on your MicroSD Card size) something like this: 
      Notice my ux0 says "61.00GB / 183.34GB", I have lots of games installed, but you should now be good to go!
       
      If you have any issues or questions, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to help!
