I mean the pictures are the tutorial, it would be harder to go into more specifics than what is already provided. It is a challenging mod, not for everyone. Need to have some thin wire and a steady hand to solder it up well. Personal suggestion, if the port works still don't do the mod. If it doesn't, use a rework station to remove the port, then solder directly to the pads. As difficult as that sounds, I've found it easiest to do it that way. At the very least solder the data pins this way, ground and 5V would be easiest to solder elsewhere.

Just ignore the bridged ground, I made this pic when I thought it was required and that does not seem to be the case. From personal experience, soldering to the data pins directly is way easier than the alternate points, even though it seems like it would be daunting its not that bad.

And here's another good reference: http://imaginglabo.web.fc2.com/PSvita-USB.htm

Could just be that you must use a special adapter like you would have to use with the original cable to disable data transfer. I made a simple adapter usb female to usb male with only 5V and GND connected which I still use to this day.
