Developer reprep (@ReRepRep) released O'Clock Vita Minimal. What's that? It's a kernel plugin that allow you to overclock your Vita/PSTV. Specially useful for PSTV users where power consumption is not a problem, and there is no need to disable it ever. Big advantage in that case is that plugin don't need any input from user, just add needed games to config, and forget you got it.

Developer bosshunter known from his contribution in to PSP scene released modified version of Camera Patch Lite. Plugin taking little bit different approach to enable right analog support on PSP games played on Vita/PSTV. This resulted in improvement support in some games (eg. SOCOM series).
Evolution continues as some serious progression appears on the horizon for HENkaku user's on firmware 3.60. As a new video shared from Yifan Lu of Team Molecule (creators of HENkaku / TaiHEN) which shows the group is back at it with a new release we will see on the 29th of July. In the teaser video the team showcases HENkaku/TaiHEN active on system boot (unlike having to be launched after system boot currently) and as a little extra spice the team shows what appears to be a custom coldboot modification as well. Is this the progression of a HEN maturing into the first true Custom Firmware for PS Vita & PlayStation TV devices? On the surface it appears that is a possibility as the video teases a bit, but until more details are learned I would caution calling it anything such as CFW, but one thing is for sure this is from a legitimate group that brought us the original hacks and come late July we should have more details with I am sure some teaser and information will arise in between.
