Developer @Joel16 is back at it again with a new update to the new utility for your PS Vita & PlayStation TV: VitaBackup. After including more inspiration from @Berion with the inclusion of also the Light Theme that Berion also provided from his initial idea of this project (VitaGUI), since the initial release developer Joel16 has re-done the backup process to give "user's 100% flexibility what they want to backup" and also some other inclusions include a couple of fixes to improve the experience with this homebrew, note that those fixes were made in a re-release of v1.10 (that came quickly after), if downloaded before may want to make sure you have this latest v1.10 build that includes the fixes listed below.
Here is a cool project that is coming together from @Joel16 called VitaBackup, this Vita homebrew (also compatible with PSTV) had an interesting journey to its creation. As the inspiration came from a GUI concept first that appeared from @Berion as he hoped to inspire developer's with this VitaGUI Concept The thread caught the attention of various people including Joel16 who always had the desire to make this reality but needed a bit of time and currently the dev started the initial steps of the project and has progressed to this first public version with some functions and abilities already with more to come later on down the road. This is great to see another great project in the fold, but also very exciting to see one of Berion's design become a reality, as the he has created several very nice GUI concepts. Nice work to both Joel16 & Berion !!!
A new project called Vita3k is in the early stages and is an Experimental PS Vita Emulators for Windows and MacOS. Currently commercial games does not run but various homebrew has been running such as Quake & VitaTester (among some other other utilities). This emulator has a long road ahead but has already progressed nicely as well. Will "Vita3k" be to the Vita, what PPSSPP was to PSP emulation, time will only tell. Also if you would like contribute to the project you can find the source code hosted @ github, you can find that link at bottom of the article:. (Thanks to @kozarovv for this news alert)
If you enjoyed the classic dice game "Yahtzee" or simply enjoyed just saying it outloud when the phenomenon occurs of the 1/1296 chance of hitting the same 5 numbers on all dice. then this clone called Yakzee by dragaron is a great addition to your PS Vita / PlayStation TV library of homebrew. In this version the dev has set 3 opponents (Human, CPU, Ghost) and a great take on the classic game, checkout all the details in the official release docs for version 0.1
Everyone likes a bit of emulation to relive those classic's, and thanks to developer rsn8887 we have some new additions to PFBA for PS Vita in this modded release of Cpasjuste's original (PFAB-Vita) . The FBA (FinalBurnAlpha) emulates classic arcade systems like NEO GEO, Capcom CPS (1,2,3) just to name a few of the many classic arcade systems emulated, but in recent years fba developer have added support to emulate now only arcades but also classic consoles as well. Some of those system's consist of PC Engine (TurboGrafX) & Genesis (MegaDrive) to name a few ((note rsn8887 has fixed support for these consoles in this update). Developer Cpasjuste already had a great port but rsn8887 has made some great additions as well. View all the changes & details about this modded version below along with the details from the original release.​
Rinnegatamante is back at it again, you know the developer who has created all these Vita Homebrew Apps & Plugins and the VitaDB (Mirrors of many Vita Homebrew releases) for those contributions alone you might want to consider supporting this developer on patreon. but here is a release of VitaQuake v2.5 that is a little special as it now has Hardware Acceleration, which hopefully be ported to other homebrew such as emulator to improve emulation and open the door to perhaps emulation such as the n64?

The PSVITA tools do not have the ability to perform operations simultaneously via FTP and USB. I have created something that will certainly serve the PSVITA scene but especially to users who have Henkaku Enso. The application in question is called Cross Connection and allows use the 2 transfer methods to transfer your files from the PC to the console both in FTP mode and in USB mode at the same time. You will then be able to transfer your files in USB mode to the ux0: partition and in FTP mode to um0: or ur0: or vice versa without waiting for one of them to terminate.The tool can also be used in "mono" mode, only FTP or USB only, obviously depends on your use. Finally thank the Onelua Team , the code used is most of them and the interpreter ONELua and Chronoss09 for the test

Two years ago the YouTube application for PSVITA was deleted from the PlayStation Store along with support. I created a simple application that allows you to use YouTube directly from the web browser with the use of uri call and with easy functions. I also posted the code source on GitHub (editable by everyone) and the download available
