Hello again, after sorting out the kinks i had previously, i ended hitting another stop: My Vita won't be recognized in my pc through usb mode at all, i've tried the next methods with no result

-rebuild database
-format memory card
-system restore
-different cable
-different pc
-uninstalling and reinstalling qcma with libusb0

the odd part of this is that whenever i hit select on vitashell to start usb mode, i get the "USB mode" message but not access

how do i fix this outside opening the console itself?

Assuming you are using Windows, can you try to go into Device Manager with the console plugged in to see if your computer recognizes something plugged in? Might be a driver issue, worst case you could always give official CMA a shot at least temporarily.

I tried the vita on an "untouched" computer(as in, never plugged in there, no results(not even detected), installed qcma with libusbK there, nothing either.

also: i noted that when i plugged it in at first on that untouched pc, the PS button light would flare up for a bit before flickering out again.

Does the console charge at all or is nothing working? If it is not charging the port itself might be defective, try shining a flashlight into the port and see if any of the pins are bent or bridged. This actually doesn't appear to be an uncommon issue for the pins to become damaged within the port itself unfortunately.

You should be able to see signs of damage just by looking at the port without opening the console, should any damage exist.

No damage visible, charges on ground.
