pstv Is there a way to set up the PS TV to boot from the internal memory?

Question

Is there a way to set up the PS TV to boot from the 1.5 GB internal memory? As soon as the memory card is removed, it won't load Vita Shell anymore. Is there a easy way to set it up to run straight from the internal memory? My PS TV already has Henkaku firmware 3.65.

I want to do this so I can only use a USB stick and eliminate the Sony Vita memory card from the equation. I know I can use usbmc to mount a USB only and run it as ux0:, but is it possible to mount the internal memory and then make the USB stick the second (so to speak, like a PC) "boot device" ?

For those who were talking to me yesterday and for more context, I am borrowing a friends Henkaku installed memory card (read: 32 GB Sony VITA memory card) and my PS TV is able to load that way. I'd like to be able to "rescue" my PS TV (because my old memory card died somehow, and now it's useless) by either forcing it to boot from the internal memory (if no memory card or USB stick is inserted) or somehow set it up (copy Henkaku files) on a spare 4 GB Sony Vita memory card that I had laying around.

I believe you could try using Storagemgr for setting mounting points for things (USB = ux0, Memory card = uma0, etc) but I don't think there's a way to boot specifically off internal memory card.

You could play with that, might have some luck there.

Let me know if you have questions!

I have used Storagemgr to get Henkaku onto my internal memory and then been able to boot from it.   It was inconvenient though because you can either actively use the internal memory or the Sony card but not both at once.   You can definitely use a Sony card and USB at the same time though; I've had an external HD set up with my PSTV.  I had to run the HD through a powered hub though, so if you're not getting success using USB on yr PSTV you might need to bring more power.

Thx but I'm using USB and not SD. I have a PS TV so it's a little different maybe?

Well like I was saying I do have a 4 GB memory card that came with the Vita that I never used.

If I could somehow reinstall Vitashell on that blank memory card as an emergency boot option I'd be happy. Then I could just use the USB stick for everything else. It doesn't seem possible though, since putting a memory card prevents it from putting from the USB stick. -_-

Appreciate the responses!

Wow old topic forgot I made this. Thanks for the info though. I was never able to solve this problem and stuck with using the USB for booting and really don't use the PSTV anymore apart from streaming anime. Since the 3.68 firmware is out now, I started to just use my Vita for homebrew (was locked out before).

      Since no one seems to be putting this here, Ima share it.  This is Criminal Girls Invite Only mod where everything has been set to how it's supposed to be, with additional interesting stuff.
       
      What's been changed / added to this mod:
      - the word MOTIVATE has been changed back to PUNISH in the Infirmary
      - punishment method names has been changed to Spanking, Electric Flick, Gooey Lesson, Tingling Course, Healing Touch respectively. Before they were Maintenance, Edgeplay, Slippery Slope, Tickle Party, and Aftercare. You will still see these names but in a form of Miu's skill set.
      - pink smoke has been cleared out. You can pretty much see everything now. But that doesn't mean you get to see everything very early. You still need to progress through the game in order to see the goods.
      - Lewd mod has been added. Since basically the decensoring only removes the smoke, the mod adds an additional *bonus* to your punishment time. To be precise, you can see the upper part of the body without any hindrance (given you've progressed through the game).
      - the Tutorial (whenever it's your first time for each girl to do the punishment) will still show the censored version, same goes for the Scene Gallery (once you unlocked it), the thumbnails will show the smoked version but that is only for show. Everything has been decensored and modded so don't worry.
       
       
      How to install:
      - download the file and extract it, it should give you "data.dat" file.
      - For Mai users, replace the "data.dat" file inside the PCSE00516 folder with the modded "data.dat" then install the game using Maidump. Afterwards, Switch game loading of PCSE00516 Criminal Girls Invite Only to Mode 4 (Use original eboot).
      - For NoNpDrm users, make a PCSE00516 folder and put the modded "data.dat" inside it. Then put the newly created PCSE00516 folder inside rePatch folder. Install the game. If this doesn't work, instead of putting the PCSE00516 folder in rePatch, just put it simply to Patch folder.
      - To make sure and find out that you have successfully installed the mod / patch is by going through the First Save Point (Infirmary). If you see PUNISH instead of MOTIVATE in there, congratulations. Game on.
      UPDATE: This is another way to install via NoNpDRM thanks to Nino_Z
      Here is how I got it to work on NoNpDRM.
      1.I deleted the DATA.DAT file from the game folder "PCSE00516" which is in apps since the patch has that full file and will replace it.
      2. I've copied the param.sfo file from the game folder known as "sce_sys" and placed it in the patch folder "sce_sys". All games need this file and it's missing in the patch for some reason. If you don't do this, the game will not start.
      3. I've placed the patch in the folder "patch" after having performed the previous changes.
      After I have performed a "liveArea refresh" everything works!
       
      - TESTED ON PS VITA SLIM, USED PCSE00516 (USA) VERSION OF THE GAME. WORKED PERFECTLY WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS.

      Keep in mind that all the samples I'm showing here are all just Level 2 and 3 of the said Punishment. It wont be fun if I show it to you now, right? I didn't include the other 2 (Miu and Himekami) but don't worry, they are also included in the mod.

      This is a Dirty Partial English translation of the game to help you play the game without understanding Japanese so you could play the game without problems about menus. I’ve made an uncensor/Lewd mod of the game a few months ago and decided to expand my mod to make it a partial English patch. And… maybe spark interest to the game since the English mod is half done now and not far from a full English patch The game is not that complicated that you can finish it without knowing the story. There are Walkthroughs out there that will give the gist of what’s happening.
      What’s translated:
      ※ All Images that contain text used in menu’s and such
      ※ All Regular Menu/Navigation Text
      What’s NOT translated:
      ※ All dialog Text and Choices in-between dialogs
      ※ Messages that appear when you found an underwear on a room
      Known bugs that exist even on the base unmodified game:
      ※ Do not MAX out your Picon’s (Money) to 9,999,999. The Game will crash at the end of the mission when the games awarded you with money you got from the level. 8,999,999 should be fine.
      ※ Sometimes the game will crash on when you continuously and quickly scroll and select the resident’s costume on “Customize Maiden” (unlocked after finishing the game). Like for example after continuously scrolling and selecting costume for 5 characters on the 6th character you scroll and select costume there is a chance to crash the game. This also happens on the base game without any mods.
      Requirements:
      ※ Hacked Vita (Enso/h-encore)
      ※ Repatch plugin installed on the Vita
      ※ NoNpDrm plugin installed on the Vita
      How to install:
      1. Install the Base Game + Game update
      2. Copy both readdcont and repatch folder to ux0: via vitashell and refresh live area.
      3. Play the game.
      Additional Notes:
      ※ Be sure to install a rePatch compatibility pack in your Vita is on 3.60
      ※ The game does not like VSH Menu, normal overclock clock plugins, framecounter. Disable them or add an exception on your tai config file. Or better use a real overclock plugin like LOLIcon overclock plugin since it loads the game fine when enabled.
      ※ On my 3.60/3.65 Vita TV the DLC sometimes is not detected and will only be detected randomly after a few exiting and running the game. Dunno why but my 3.68 vita fat and slim always detects it. So think for a bit if you want DLC on you Vita TV since the game won’t load your save if the DLC is not detected.
      ※ If there are major bug’s and you want it to be fixed, contact me and send a screenshot of it or the text before or after the text bug.
