pstv Is there a way to set up the PS TV to boot from the internal memory?

Question

Is there a way to set up the PS TV to boot from the 1.5 GB internal memory? As soon as the memory card is removed, it won't load Vita Shell anymore. Is there a easy way to set it up to run straight from the internal memory? My PS TV already has Henkaku firmware 3.65.

I want to do this so I can only use a USB stick and eliminate the Sony Vita memory card from the equation. I know I can use usbmc to mount a USB only and run it as ux0:, but is it possible to mount the internal memory and then make the USB stick the second (so to speak, like a PC) "boot device" ?

For those who were talking to me yesterday and for more context, I am borrowing a friends Henkaku installed memory card (read: 32 GB Sony VITA memory card) and my PS TV is able to load that way. I'd like to be able to "rescue" my PS TV (because my old memory card died somehow, and now it's useless) by either forcing it to boot from the internal memory (if no memory card or USB stick is inserted) or somehow set it up (copy Henkaku files) on a spare 4 GB Sony Vita memory card that I had laying around.

I believe you could try using Storagemgr for setting mounting points for things (USB = ux0, Memory card = uma0, etc) but I don't think there's a way to boot specifically off internal memory card.

You could play with that, might have some luck there.

Let me know if you have questions!

I have used Storagemgr to get Henkaku onto my internal memory and then been able to boot from it.   It was inconvenient though because you can either actively use the internal memory or the Sony card but not both at once.   You can definitely use a Sony card and USB at the same time though; I've had an external HD set up with my PSTV.  I had to run the HD through a powered hub though, so if you're not getting success using USB on yr PSTV you might need to bring more power.

Thx but I'm using USB and not SD. I have a PS TV so it's a little different maybe?

Well like I was saying I do have a 4 GB memory card that came with the Vita that I never used.

If I could somehow reinstall Vitashell on that blank memory card as an emergency boot option I'd be happy. Then I could just use the USB stick for everything else. It doesn't seem possible though, since putting a memory card prevents it from putting from the USB stick. -_-

Appreciate the responses!

Thanks one more confirmation before I try though - so all I need to do is :

1. Insert blank Sony memory card + Insert bootable my USB stick

2. Run the app.

3. The inserted blank memory card will now have Vita shell installed.

I want to make the empty card or internal memory bootable, because my old one died and I can only boot from a USB.

Wow old topic forgot I made this. Thanks for the info though. I was never able to solve this problem and stuck with using the USB for booting and really don't use the PSTV anymore apart from streaming anime. Since the 3.68 firmware is out now, I started to just use my Vita for homebrew (was locked out before).

      Well even with Marvelous's decision a few days ago to bring an English version of the game to the PS4 and PC, we we still went out on completing the patch seeing as how we were already knees deep and almost finished.
      The RAR file contains the patch with instructions on how to install it, written by @happydance. You require the NoNpDRM version of the game, which you can get from NPS.
      This is the full translation and has been tested out thoroughly. However, we'd still like some user input on any errors, if they exist.

      ^Best dialogue, 10/10.

      Oh yeah, and a huge thanks for @TheQuietOne for putting the project together.
      Edit: personal thanks to the YouTubers that streamed the game, Please login or register to see this link. and Please login or register to see this link. . Watching someone play the part I'm translating helps a lot.

      This is a Dirty Partial English translation of the game to help you play the game without understanding Japanese so you could play the game without problems about menus. I’ve made an uncensor/Lewd mod of the game a few months ago and decided to expand my mod to make it a partial English patch. And… maybe spark interest to the game since the English mod is half done now and not far from a full English patch The game is not that complicated that you can finish it without knowing the story. There are Walkthroughs out there that will give the gist of what’s happening.
      What’s translated:
      ※ All Images that contain text used in menu’s and such
      ※ All Regular Menu/Navigation Text
      What’s NOT translated:
      ※ All dialog Text and Choices in-between dialogs
      ※ Messages that appear when you found an underwear on a room
      Known bugs that exist even on the base unmodified game:
      ※ Do not MAX out your Picon’s (Money) to 9,999,999. The Game will crash at the end of the mission when the games awarded you with money you got from the level. 8,999,999 should be fine.
      ※ Sometimes the game will crash on when you continuously and quickly scroll and select the resident’s costume on “Customize Maiden” (unlocked after finishing the game). Like for example after continuously scrolling and selecting costume for 5 characters on the 6th character you scroll and select costume there is a chance to crash the game. This also happens on the base game without any mods.
      Requirements:
      ※ Hacked Vita (Enso/h-encore)
      ※ Repatch plugin installed on the Vita
      ※ NoNpDrm plugin installed on the Vita
      How to install:
      1. Install the Base Game + Game update
      2. Copy both readdcont and repatch folder to ux0: via vitashell and refresh live area.
      3. Play the game.
      Additional Notes:
      ※ Be sure to install a rePatch compatibility pack in your Vita is on 3.60
      ※ The game does not like VSH Menu, normal overclock clock plugins, framecounter. Disable them or add an exception on your tai config file. Or better use a real overclock plugin like LOLIcon overclock plugin since it loads the game fine when enabled.
      ※ On my 3.60/3.65 Vita TV the DLC sometimes is not detected and will only be detected randomly after a few exiting and running the game. Dunno why but my 3.68 vita fat and slim always detects it. So think for a bit if you want DLC on you Vita TV since the game won’t load your save if the DLC is not detected.
      ※ If there are major bug’s and you want it to be fixed, contact me and send a screenshot of it or the text before or after the text bug.

      Okay, so, when setting up the system and microsd card for the vita you have to add the gamesd.skprx to ur0:tai as ur0:tai/gamesd.skprx, right? Well, for some reason the skprx is disappearing and I dont know what to do about it!!! I need the file to mount my sd2vita to my system, but it's not staying at all. Everything is done correctly as well.
