I do as well. I cant figure out how to get PSP backups to work without it so I put Adrenaline on my Vita. I figured out how to get multiple types of Vita backups to run though.

Now Im just having trouble figuring out how to get plug-ins to work. I got one to work, RegistryEditor, and I use it to stop the screen from auto-dimming after 10 seconds of not touching a button. I cant get any others to work though. I tried to use Vita Plug-In Manager. It launches but im not sure where to put the plugin file(s) at.

Been trying to get backups to run on the Vita but I can’t get it to connect to my PC. It doesn’t pick up on USB or wifi. No matter how many times I uninstall and reinstall QCMA with different drivers I can’t get it to connect. The different solutions like plugging it into USB 2 and using Zadig hasn’t worked for it. I’m not sure what else to do


#8823

You have it in airplane mode?


#8824

Does CMA work? You have to register your vita with that first then use QCMA. And, yeah, make sure its not in Airplane Mode.


#8825

CMA only works when it’s connected on Wifi. It’s not on airplane mode.

I got the fucking thing working on my cousin’s laptop. Has anyone gotten a banned from using Henkaku? I didn’t realized I was logged into my account when I was testing some backups and got a trophy.


#8827

No not that I am aware of.


#8828

That’s a shame…I might as well mod mine.

Production for the vita should have ended when Sony stopped supporting it by no longer putting first party titles on it back in like 2014, I think it was. The only things that have came out on the vita are bad Indy games, extremely niche and obscure rpgs and visual novels.

Sure they’re good for hacking I guess? But if you have to hack a system in order for it to be usable it must not be that good of a system in general.

I loved my ps vita when I had one but all I played on it was psx games and that novelty ran out pretty quick.

Don’t bother with QCMA. Plug your Vita into your computer, open a window, click on Organize>Folder Options>View and check the Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives and you’ll be able to see the filesystem of the Vita including where to drop game backups.


#8831

I use vitashell. Easiest method.


#8832

I heard that pstv is finally starting to rise in price? Glad I got mine for like $30 new a year or so ago. Still playing Tactics Ogre on it…


#8833

Just got my Vita connected to my PS4 for remote play and hoooolly shit is it a game changer. I wish the PS3 had the horsepower to make remote play on anything but PS1 games a reality.

My wonderful Vita

Then some dumb kitten decided to knock over my cup of water and my wonderful vita sat in that water till I woke up. I dried it off hoping nothing was busted but it was. I let it dry and it mostly worked but the d-pad, so I opened it up to have a look.

I removed the PCB for the d-pad but when I did that I made a big mistake. One of the ribbons was held in place by a metal plate and it ripped. I wept and decided it was doomed and I put it up.

I took it out a few days ago and decided to look at it under a magnifying glass. Its lookin’ hopeful that I can fix that ribbon, I just haven’t tried. Im not sure if the d-pad will work even if I do but I sure hope so.

Thanks for showing me that site. I may be using it for other stuffs I have. Anyhow, that’s just the d-pad alone I think. In the pictures it focuses on the d-pad and you can see in the background that the ribbon/cable is disconnected from the board.


#8839

I would at least email him and ask about ribbons. The sticks on the Switch Joycon for example come with a ribbon when you buy them.

I would just buy a new one but finding one that is on OFW 3.65 (or lower) is pretty hard. If I could find one on 3.65 I would jump on it in a second. All I would need to do is put my memory card in it and it would be like I never broke the damn thing.

I looked at wololo and saw this. May not matter what FW the thing is on if this turns out to be true.
