[CLOSED] PSVSD will not boot

Post by tylerfox3894 » Wed Aug 26, 2020 8:01 am

i ordered a PSVSD off modchipcentral. Not my first choice but spheresolid hasn't had an update in months or else i would have bought from them. When i attempt to install it my vita gets stuck upon boot. The enso splash screen pops up and then it just hangs forever. Has anyone encountered this before? i really want to use one on my vita but i have tried this several times using chips from aliexpress in the past and i keep having the same issue.

i should clarify. i have the usbmc plugin installed. the vita will boot without an sd card inserted normally. If i attempt to boot with an sd card it hangs upon boot.

I would assume since you couldn't buy from SolidSphere your PSVSD is probably mass produced from Yifans original PSVSD.

If it's 1:1 with the originally released PSVSD you probably need to solder a small ground wire from the SD card reader to the GND pin. I didn't have to do this, but I also got mine from Solid back when they had stock.

Reddit thread about the issue

Before jumping the gun and soldering, look that thread over.

I do not think that is the same issue. I cannot even get to the point of checking if my sd card is detected or not. I could give soldering a try.

Did you write the zzblank image to the SD card?
