Can I still play physical Vita games?
While yes, your Vita has the capability to still play physical games, removing the micro SD and SD2vita to play a physical game is strongly not advised. Once the vita is turned on without the hacked files in place on the SD Card, it could jeopardize your jailbreak as it prompts you to update the system, not allowing you to do anything further. If you want to play a game you have a physical copy of, the best advice is just to download it to your device via PKGj to avoid any potential issues.
What is FTP?
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, and is a means to transfer files to and from one internet connected device via a computer. There are a number of FTP clients you can download, but the most popular one is generally Filezilla. It is very simple to use. All you need to do is make sure that your computer is connected to the same network as your Vita, then launch Filezilla. On your Vita, open Vitashell, hit select, and you will see your vita’s IP address and port. Enter that information into the top of Filezilla and hit “quick connect”. You will then be able to transfer files from your computer directly to where needed on your Vita. For more information, see one of the many readily available Youtube tutorials on Filezilla.
