    I'm basically writing this up because there wasn't any updated info on this & so I can remember what I did haha
    • Follow http://cfw.guide/vita/
    • Up until your vita asks for an official memory card
    • Now prepare your SD2Vita following http://cfw.guide/vita/sd2vita
    • Then visit http://mlthaku.tk on your Vita browser & install (took me 3 goes to install).
    • You know it's installed properly when VitaShell, Adrenaline & Enso have appeared on your homescreen.
    • Now click on Enso to install it
    • Go into VitaShell to update it
    And you're done :D

    If you want to play backup's of your games the newest & preferred method is using NoNpDrm https://github.com/TheOfficialFloW/NoNpDrm follow the instruction there to install the plugin & learn how to backup/dump your games.

    If you have problems getting NoNpDrm to work with SD2Vita, this reddit post helped me with the config file:
    Misc plugins that I have installed (will update):

    The SD2Vita mounts as ux0 on boot but you can use this https://github.com/Applelo/SwitchSD2Vita to swap between the 2
    Or if you have an oled, buy a motherboard with lower firmware :D
    Woops, ill just quote the post then

    Yes, I could do that. But I'm not brave enough

    It's really quite easy! I just watched a few teardown guides on youtube before attempting it & followed one as I went along :)

    Well I want to have the SD2Vita as the location for Roms, ISOs and the PSPEmu. Music also because the Vita Music Player just shows ALL the Tracks when they should be in Folders, sectioned off.
    Only problem is, I think I have some Games on the other 2 Cards I have that I dont have on my 64GB Card. Hope there will be a Vita2USB Adapter at some point
