Has anyone tried using an otg cable to use their usb flash drive on the ps vita slim? This would be awesome if it does work. Imagine 1tb on the vita lol

He didn't really state this on Twitter. He just said "How to be blocked: ask whether OTG USB is supported "
What about using that mystery port on top of the vita 1000?
This just sucks because I had a 16GB memory card and now it doesn't won't to work anymore. I can't format it. I am using a 4GB memory card now :/

This would be in addition to the mod above. For handheld vitas, there isn't a USB type A port, but there are two USB protocol ports. One is the "accessory port" which you might be able to make a custom cable for & enable it in kernel. More promising is the "PCIe" slot used by 3G vitas. I'm pretty sure there is no PCIe supported by the Vita (no references in the kernel), but the MDM6200 only supports USB 2.0 so it's likely that the PCIe only works in USB 2.0 mode. Therefore it is possible to solder the right pins (on wifi models) or insert a PCIe => USB 2.0 bridge card (do those exist? I'm sure they do, if not it would be "easy" to make one) on 3g models to get a USB 2.0 port. Then you need to patch the kernel to use this USB port for mass storage (I think only the other one is used by default). Bonus points if you make a case mod that accepts a microSD from the SIM slot and embed a SD to USB adapter inside the Vita.
