Persona 4 Golden is the portable re-release of Persona 4. It features a new dungeon, several enhancements to gameplay and graphics, and some new online features. It uses elements from the Persona 3 Portable engine, but the overworld elements from the PS2 version make a return. Some of the files from Persona 4 are still compatible with Persona 4 Golden, such as TMX files.

Files[edit]

This is the main CPK file for the game, similar to DATA.CVM from previous titles.

  • MOVIE

This folder contains all videos. They use the USM container in the Japanese version, and MP4 in all other versions.

  • EBOOT.BIN

The game's executable.

Filetypes[edit]

Modding[edit]

Even without decrypting the executable, it's possible to run mods on a Vita or PSTV system by exploiting the patch directory of ux0: (the memory card). This is where update data is normally loaded from. However, on firmware 3.60, when substituted with unencrypted files, the game will load those in place of the originals.

Patches[edit]

ux0:patch/PCSE00120/data is a directory you can read or write using FTP when you meet the following qualifications.

  1. You have vitaShell or molecularShell installed via Henkaku on Firmware 3.60
  2. You have a wi-fi connection and a PC with an FTP client
  3. You have launched molecularShell from its original bubble

If you are on a firmware higher than 3.60 (which is required for modding Persona 5 Dancing Star Night and Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night), then
ux0:rePatch/PCSE00120/data is a directory you can use instead that will still support unencrypted files as long as you meet the following requirements:

  1. You have VitaShell installed via h-encore on firmware 3.68 or lower
  2. You have henkaku running through the h-encore exploit
  3. You have the rePatch redux plugin installed

You can rebuild a dumped CPK from Persona 4 Golden and transfer it to the ux0:patch/PCSE00120/data/ directory. It will load when the game runs until you delete it. For more information on how to rebuild, go here: CPK

Save data[edit]

/savedata0: is a partition you can read and write using FTP when you meet the following qualifications.

  1. You have molecularShell installed via Henkaku on Firmware 3.60
  2. You have a wi-fi connection and a PC with an FTP client
  3. You have modified the ur0:shell/db/app.db file so that the P4G manual opens in the Near or Email app when ux0:app/PCSE00120 is entered into the PSVita browser
  4. You have launched molecularShell from its original bubble and installed another molecularShell in the ux0:patch/PCSE00120/ directory using FTP
  5. You have launched molecularShell from the Persona 4 Golden bubble while the manual is open in the Near or Email app
