accountswitcher

Switch between your PSN accounts on your Vita

Usage:

Adding accounts:

Current Account:

Open the app, and dump your current profile (second option)

Other Account:

  • First unslave SD card (third option, this will allow you to keep your SD intact)
  • Restore the device (Format->Restore This System)
  • When asked if you want to deactivate, choose "No"
  • When asked if you want to format the card, choose "No"
  • Log in with your new credentials
  • Activate the Vita (NOTE: since 3.61 you can't do that directly, you have to use either vita-activator or choose the Activate option I included in AccountSwitcher)
  • Open the app and dump your new profile (second option)

Loading an account:

  • Select "Load Account"
  • Choose a profile
  • Reboot system

Backup folder

  • Profiles are stored on ux0:/data/AccountSwitcher

ToDo

  • Trial account support

Credits:

  • vitasdk and henkaku devs for making this possible
  • xerpi for vita2dlib
  • kprinssu for vitamenulib
  • ZombieWizzard for vita-activate

Change

v2.3:

  • Removed current account check (it was pointless to begin with, there are situations when you need to reload such as deactivating)
  • Added LiveArea

v2.2:

  • Trophies glitch fixed (Error NP-6174-8) (Remember to sync your trophies before switching if you dont want to lose them)
  • For the sake of consistency, accounts are now stored in ux0:/data/AccountSwitcher. If you already dumped your accounts, simply use FTP or VitaShell to rename the old folder (ux0:/data/psn-account-switcher) to the new one.

v2.1:

  • Henkaku Offline Support (now the mail app won't ask to reformat the mail database after switching accounts)

v2.0:

  • Complete rewrite from scratch
  • Added extra validations
  • Minor text fixes :3
  • Application now uses official PGF font
  • Added reboot feature
  • Added activation feature (credit goes to @ZombieWizzard)

v1.1:

  • Bug fixes. Added current profile to main screen. #v1.0:
  • Initial version
