Copying files to the PSVita… via an iOS device (jailbroken)


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    There is a way easier way without changing the file extension. Just connect the vita to the same network (or make a hotspot from your I device and connect to that) then open any from client on the vita (let’s say vitashell and press select) then on the iOS device open ifile and tap the globe and connect to FTP server and done transfer what you like where ever you like without limitations.

      Sorry not the globe the bottom right button then the bottom left and finally FTP server. Simples.

      That should work too but you have to click on the “tabs” button on the bottom right to add the FTP connection not the globe icon.

    I use Filza and connect my vita via ftp it’s easy. We can use Android device as well with ftp client like turbo ftp and working good. I don’t use computer to transfer files for my vita 🙂

      Yeps. It works too (my method avoids the changing IP numbers and you can use it without HEN enabled) 🙂

    Or just use a file browser from the AppStore and ftp it to the Vita in any directory you want. No jailbreak necessary. Slow news day, huh?

    Or use a simple file browser from the AppStore and ftp files to the Vita anywhere on the memory card. No jailbreak necessary. Slow news day, huh?

      Before you blurt out comments, please give out a discrete suggestion and it wouldn’t hurt if you told us how to use a ‘simple file browser’ to copy over Mega files either.

      It’s sad to see people like you on this site. No need to be an ignorant person. What a shame, huh?

    IOS blargh…
    Android 5 or 6 is better.
    im using an Galaxy S7 Flat with Android 6.1 and Turbo Client (FTP Transfer File App Free on GooglePlay Store).
    Just open Turbo Client, creat an profile to PS VITA using PS VITA ip and protocol, save, open VITA SHELL or MOLECULAR SHELL or Whatever, sinc and Voilá.
    *Remenbering you can use WiFi Thetering from Galaxy S7 (works with anyone smarthphone android), to conect directly to PS VITA and pair the conection to an good , stable and fast transfers.
    But using local wifi too is fast.
    Thank for you post, but here my contribution to theirs like want read coments here to yours too.
    See yahh.

    No need to have a jailbroken iPhone.
    I use Goodreader that can ftp to the psvita. The psvita can either be connected to the same wifi as the iPhone or can be connected to the iPhone using tethering.
