Thanks to the advancements of the community, PS Vita 1000 model owners are no longer required to have a proprietary Memory Card! This works for both modified and non-modified PS Vita 1000 owners. This will show you in either situation how to unlock a hidden 1 GB Internal Memory Card, some warnings to look out for in terms of future usage, and how to undo the changes if ever required.

Please keep in mind this video is intended only for PS Vita 1000 model consoles. There is no need to perform this on a 2000, Vita TV, or PSTV since they already have 1 GB of internal storage available.
