PSVita-StorageMgr

Kernel plugin that automatically mounts/redirects any storage device to any mount points you want

Credits

  • gamesd by motoharu and xyz
  • usbmc by yifanlu and TheFloW
  • VitaShell kernel plugin by TheFloW

Description

StorageMgrKernel is a kernel plugin that automatically mounts/redirects any storage device on any mount points you want.

Advantages

  • It is configurable through a configuration file (an application could be made to handle this file)
  • It is a ALL-IN-ONE storage driver as it replaces usbmc.skprx and gamesd.skprx
  • It fixes many issues in previous drivers
  • Fixed sporadic wakeups when using SD2VITA thanks to xyz
  • It works with taiHEN under henkaku, h-encore, h-encore-2, Trinity, QuickHEN-PSVita or enso
  • When SD2VITA is removed or not working and configured to be redirected to ux0, memcard/internal is by default mounted to ux0
  • Compatible with PSVita FWs 3.60, 3.65, 3.67, 3.68, 3.69, 3.70, 3.71, 3.72 and 3.73
  • Proved working with 2TB exFAT HDD on PSTV (need to be formatted with <=64kB clusters)

Future improvements (TO DO)

  • Maybe it would be better to autoresolve imports by .yml than by get_module_export function or in the future create a tool to batch resolve
  • Add more mount points: sd0: for example and adjust missing mount points for some devices
  • Add more exported functions (currently only ux0/uma0)
  • Include in VitaShell once exports are ready
  • Create a user app for installation + configuration (+ real time mounting if VitaShell has not all mount points)
  • Create a user library
  • Detect a key that being pressed would load an alternative config
  • Add multi-configs support
  • Create a taihen-free version for @SKGleba and other "early boot testers" (see YAMT)
  • Improve the parser: do not load the file each time
  • Improve code readibility: too much indentation is bad
  • Improve Speed: 1) improve the parser, 2) reduce delays 3) follow @SKGleba 's advice, 4) use PoS method for GCD
  • Fix issues reported in this github repository

Usage

  • IMPORTANT: IF YOU HAVE ISSUES WITH USB MOUNTING ON PSTV, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO INSTALL ENSO (FW 3.60 or 3.65).
  • NOTE: for using USB mass with h-encore and h-encore2, you have to boot PSTV, plug out USB mass, plug in USB mass then launch h-encore. It is annoying to do, so it is recommended to downgrade to FW 3.60 and install enso.
  • NOTE: for big storage capacity devices, like 2TB HDD on PSTV, it need to be formatted as exFAT 64kB clusters or smaller because 128kB clusters and more are not supported by PSVita OS.
  • NOTE: For mounting a device as ux0:, this device must have been already mounted as ux0: using VitaShell at least once to have necessary files on it.
  1. If it exists, remove gamesd.skprx and usbmc.skprx or any other storage plugin.
  2. Copy storage_config.txt to ur0:tai/.
  3. Copy storagemgr.skprx to ur0:tai/.
  4. If it exists, copy ux0:tai/config.txt to ur0:tai/config.txt.
  5. If it exists, remove ux0:tai/config.txt.
  6. In ur0:tai/config.txt after *KERNEL create a new line and write: ur0:tai/storagemgr.skprx.
  7. Configure ur0:tai/storage_config.txt to what you want.
  8. Reboot PSVita.

Example
