    Sad that it happened to you. The plastic shell looks very cheap indeed.

    I got so fed up with how bad the design was I decided to make my own and see what it would take to 3D print it.
    I have no idea if it would be worth it but I'm willing to try if this issue persists for others as well.

    In the process I found a big functional flaw in their design and I'm laughing my ass off about it.

    8gb worked for me

    It could also be the CardEMU itself, as it's quite cheap and relies on pressure on the MicroSD card to work

    I only had 8gb on hand. I suggest you try 16gb just to see if it works.

    And thanks. Now I just need to see if what I made would fit right...

    Send it to me and I will modify it to have a click-in micro sd card slot.

    Can't do that now, already shipped it back to the seller (which is already telling me lies so I'm pretty mad).

    You are the hero Vita piracy needs but not the one it deserves.

    I also heard a lite version is now available! http://cobra-blackfin.com/

    But since HENkaku is now available everyone will be updating to 3.60 firmware which the Black Fin has yet to be compatible with.

    News Update!

    We are concurrently introducing a lite version of the BlackFin retail pack which contains only the Cobra BlackFin Card Emulator and the BTLE USB Dongle with a suggested retail price of 69.99 USD, and the standard retail pack including reader will remain available with suggested retail price of 89.99 USD. The new revised lower pricing and lite retail pack bring massive savings to customers and there are many many features in development which will bring great enjoyment to our users.

    Cobra Team will now develop support for Android devices which support BlueTooth Low Energy connectivity. Most new mid range Android devices support this functionality, which means soon you will be able to enjoy BlackFin with Vita on the go!
    We are also developing further features and improvements for the PC and Android BlackFin applications such as:

    *Ability to format Micro SD cards to BlackFin format and transfer Vita ISO's to the Micro SD via the BlackFin application, without the need for the BlackFin reader, simply using any MicroSD card reader for PC.

    *Support for Unicode characters; Japanese and Chinese character file names for ISO's

    *Improved game dumping stability

    *Enhancements to the User Interface system

    Stay tuned for further updates, Cobra Team will continue to innovate and support BlackFin with many new enhancements.
    The Vita scene has only truly just begun, and with the dawn of homebew loaders on Vita many new possibilities can be explored! We will be at the forefront of scene development and bring great features to our users, as you would expect from Team Cobra.
    We have received the list of game names available through the Asian BlackFin servers by anonymous contributors and another 30 titles are expected to follow within the next 2 weeks...
    The list of games will grow as Blackfin is adopted by more and more users..

    Thanks for the update - two things I wanted to verify with you guys:

    1. Is it running on a 3.60? reading back on this thread and still am not sure if it does or not.
    2. is it region restricted? meaning if I have a US vita I could only log in to the US servers and have access only to the games offered there?

    thanks!

    The answer to the first question is No, it doesn't work on 3.60 . Which means you can't use it with henkaku atleast at the current time. I can't find any info on the second question though Pixelbutts would have to help you with that one.

    Seeing how we have widespread access to homebrew these days - Is it possible to ignore the "Vita card emulation" aspect of this device, and basically, somehow, use it a SD-to-VitaMemCard adapter to e.g. store roms for retroarch on? Sony memory is expensive.

    News Update! Cobra Team are now developing a solution for 3.60 in light of the exploits discovered recently, which will lead to much greater flexibility, menu system running directly on the Vita and a bunch of other exciting console side features.. We would ask anyone currently using BlackFin to remain on 3.57 OFW until we announce completion of development, at which point you can update to 3.60 OFW. Anyone currently on 3.60 OFW should not update to 3.61, since current exploits are already blocked.

    lol, yeah I HATE how slow they move. They wait to make announcements about waiting some more. Do they work like 30 minutes a day on the project?
