Davis Nuñez‏ has released a welcomed utility for the PS Vita & PlayStation TV, FTPzilla Vita is as the developer describes as "an FTP client written in pure LUA, which is fast and functional". As FTP transfers are very useful for many devices, but for a homebrew enthusiast they are a must have. So keep a look on this FTP client that is already functional but aims to do even more in future updates. Checkout all the included released details from the dev.
One of the best things that could happen to the PlayStation TV (Vita TV) was the AntiBlackList (Whitelist) patches that removed the restricted that will only allow certain Vita games to be played. While it did not make every single game playable, those patches did open most of the library up to user's., but some games would still proved to problematic leaving a bit of unknowns why some titles would not work, but developer OperationNT stumbled on to something very interesting with this new FakeCamera Plugin. This plugin is important for PlayStation TV (Vita TV) because some games would call for the Vita Camera and we all know that the PSTV does not come with a camera only the Vita itself. The dev has two new titles confirmed to work with this method, If you stumble on to another game let us know in the comments below, view all the details from OperationNT.​
big_Sakis25 (of VitaHEX games) has released a new homebrew game for our exploited PS Vita or PSTV called Crazy Traffic Jam 3D, This game is powered by LuaPlayerPlus (LPP) and is an arcade style driving game, where weaving your car through traffic and obstacles is the goal while collecting power-ups and coins for a max score. Looks to be a great nod to the classic SpyHunter and similar games​
We seen the RetroArch (Vita) updated recently which also has its own FBA (Final Burn Alpha) Arcade emulator (core), but a new fork has emerged recently from rsn8887 who has added some addional changes to PFBA (Vita) Emulator a release originally by Cpasjuste, This fork has a variety of changes for enjoying those classic Arcade hits, all additions and difference in this version of Portable Final Burn Alpha (pFBA) are outlined in the release notes:​
Heh, release time I guess. As I stated earlier game mode is rather limited so unless someone reverse's SceShell this plugin's functionality is going to be limited. Most of the features in this plugin/recovery are already available in other homebrews so this isn't necessarily something new, however that is possibly going to change in the future. The main reason was to bring back the nostalgia from the good old PSP days. For PSTV users it allows you to quickly reboot/shutdown/suspend the device so there's the benefit in that.​
Not only was RetroArch updated for exploited PS3 Consoles (CFW & ODE) but also the PS Vita / PlayStation TV port (with most other ports being updated as well). In this update of v1.6.3 the Vita platform has a couple new welcomed additions. The first being Cheevos Support (Achievements) & also then also External USB Support has been added to the mult-System emulator that comes bundled with plenty of Retro emulation that will take you back to the roots of gaming.. Truly has been great to see the success of a Homebrew on that runs on so many platforms that has a deep root in the PlayStation Homebrew Scene. The project continues to evolve even on this early port still for the Vita Platform.​
PS VITA / PS TV Custom Theme Manager v3.00
Custom Theme Manager (CTM) has been updated recently to version 3.00, you may recall seeing this Vita Homebrew App in the GekiHEN Contest and this would mark one of the first update by developer redsquirrel since the contest and the dev has alot in store in this update. Version 3.00 has a massive changelog with plenty of new changes
The day has arrived as we see Ensō released, this "evolution of HENkaku" is a permanently injected hack that does not need to re-authentication or re-executed in the way HENkaku or TaiHEN has required in the past. Essentially this act as a Custom Firmware would for the PSP or the PS3 as we have seen the power of HENkaku and TaiHEN (CFW Framework of HENkaku) for awhile now, but this permanent solution has finally seen the official release after an early test version was leaked months ago. This is a huge project and bugs more then likely are present, while the team has a long successful test period there is always potential for problems, so use anything like this at your own risk. Checkout all the details from Team Molecule creators of this new progression from the original team behind the HENkaku exploit.
