[OPEN] Sharing the same memory card between PSTV and PSVita

Post by tibyandy » Mon Jun 06, 2016 3:40 pm

Hello!

I just got myself a PSTV running 3.20 and have for ages my PSVita on 3.18.

I got the PSTV activated and was able to run all the games from my PSVita 16GB card using the "Whitelist" e-mail exploit and with the Update Blocker.
Tested all my PSV and PSP (official and backup) games and they worked fine.

However, when putting the card back inside my Vita, it said the memory card was from another version and I'd need a system update to view it's contents...

I wonder if there's a way to allow the contents to be shared between the two devices without losing all PSP emulation properties of 3.18 / 3.20.

Thanks in advance.

Do a manual upgrade of the PSVITA to 3.20.

I can't find anywhere the firmware 3.20, did many Google searches with no success. I don't think there exists an OFW update to 3.20...

You can swap by overwriting id.dat on the MC. Before you do this, recommend to backup the whole MC first so in case anything happens you can restore the MC.

Hmm, it would be quite tiresome to keep writing id.dat everytime... doing it once a week sounds ok, but for everyday use it's not. Any other solution?

I'm thinking of updating both my Vita and PSTV to solve this problem.

1. Will it work?
2. What is the best firmware above 3.20 to stay? I want to be able to run my PSP backups and also emulators.
