Yifan Lu has started a project on Indiegogo to fund a 3G to microSD card adapter for hacked PS Vita handhelds.



Quote:
The Idea
Vita memory cards are too expensive and it would be nice to be able to use a microSD card. The 3G feature is pretty useless. Combing those two thoughts and I decided 'what if we replace that modem with USB storage?' This works because the Vita's modem port is simply a USB 2.0 port that uses the miniPCIe form factor. A hacked Vita running 3.60 has the ability to load custom drivers, and it is just a matter of putting all the pieces together.

Features
* At the core of the adapter is the USB2244 chip, which is a SD to USB microprocessor. It is a high end chip (you won't find it in cheap SD to USB adapters) that has good power consumption and a long lifespan. It supports SD/SDHC/SDXC cards.
*You need to open up the Vita and replace the modem card. This is relatively simple and is akin to changing the battery. You can put in a large microSD card, install it, and forget about it.
* With HENkaku Ensō, you can use the adapter on boot
* Because there's extra space on the board, I also added two debug ports that the original modem uses to communicate with the Vita. Using them is optional. Developers and hackers can use this for their homebrew and hacks.
* All design files, Gerbers, schematics, layouts, BOMs, software drivers, etc will be public and open source. Anyone can produce the board as well as modify it.

presumably the non-3g models are the same - just without the modem board plugged in.

no, the non-3g models are totally missing the space and connector for the 3g modem, you can NOT just plug it in.

But as yifanlu states on the project page, you can buy a replacement Vita 3g motherboard from china for only $25, and the good thing is that most likely to be on firmware below v3.60, and it fits inside the case of your wifi only vita, just have to take it all apart and reassembled it.

In other Vita to MicroSD news, RichDevX is still working on his direct MemorySlot to MicroSD adapter, he been having some trouble finding a production company that can produce it perfectly, but he recently found one that should and will be making another test run soon, so hopefully in few more months or less we will have that as another option for us vita owners which are hungry for affordable memory!

Slightly off topic... Where do you get these chinese motherboards? Do they sell psp boards?

There isn't a connector, but the pads are on the motherboard. Isn't it possible to alter the layout to use these pads ?
Of course, it would need soldering, so no plug'n'play solution.

Could be possible, provided the pads for the connector actually have USB signal.

Looks like I missed out on some news again. After completion of the psvsd card adapter project, Yifan Lu has posted an extensive article with the design files how to build a microSD card adapter connected via USB internally for PS Vita 3G which replaces the internal 3G modem. The whole build process is explained in great detail making this a suitable project for beginners getting into electronics hardware design.

From Yifan Lu...

Quote:
In order to become more familiar with hardware design as well as understand how USB works on the Vita, I thought it would be fun to create a custom Vita USB device that fits on the modem port. The main reason I chose this port aside from the other USB ports is that it is the easiest to build.
