Preparation

1. If you plan to use your microSD adapter as ux0:, back up your Vita memory card to your computer. You can do this via USB so that it’s quicker.
If you want to use your SD2Vita as uma0: (external memory), skip this step
2. Move your ux0:/tai folder to ur0:/tai so that you can use your adapter even if you don’t have the Vita card inserted and it may avoid any path issues while mounting the microSD card. ur0 is the internal memory of your Vita – It’s available on Slim models, PSTVs and even the FAT models (even though Sony doesn’t want you using it).
3. Add the sd2vita adapter driver to ur0:/tai/config.txt under the *KERNEL section. The line you’ll be adding will probably be “ur0:tai/gamesd.skprx”. Now, you’ve installed the driver on your PSVita.
4. Put the microSD card into the adapter and wait for it to show up on your computer
5. Open up Win32 Disk Imager, select zzBlank.img from your computer, make sure you’re selecting the microSD in the drive selector and press WRITE.
6. Unplug your microSD and pop it back in.
7. Format your disk from Windows (it should ask you to but go to My Computer and right click on the microSD) with the following options:
exFAT as File system
Select Default allocation size as Allocation Unit Size
Don’t put in a volume label
8. You’ve now finished your microSD! You can copy the backup of your Vita memory card if you went down that route.
9. Pop the microSD in your adapter, run HENkaku on your PSVita and enjoy the extra storage!
