Postby Kanon Schreiber Tue Dec 27, 2016 5:49 am


What is VitaShell
VitaShell is an alternative replacement of the PS Vita's LiveArea.
Featuring a file manager, package installer, built-in FTP and much more.

Vita Shell was Developed by TheFlow
You may download the latest released version on the developer's hub:

Understanding the Root Structure
app0 - Current Application running (usually Molecule)
gro0 - Game Card
grw0 - Writable space on Game Card (if supported)
os0 - Main operating system (Do not mess with this unless you want a brick)
pd0 - Welcome Park (also Preinstall part of the update)
sa0 - Fonts and handwriting
savedata0 - Save data
tm0 - Related to PSN access. Do not touch or share this
ud0 - Used for updates
ur0 - User data on the system (like ux0: but internal)
ux0 - User data on the Vita Memory Card
vd0 - System registry
vs0 - Part of the OS. Has system apps, usually labeled NPXSXXXXX
Info Overload? We will just focus on the uxo directory.

• Select the ux0 directory
This is where you could manage the files stored on your memory card

• Start Button - Version Info, Credits etc
