As we recently reported of a VITA / PSTV port of RetroArch that was under development from the official team. Since the time of that annoucement there has been significant progress on the project in the last couple of weeks. The team has now announced they have started Nightly Releases for this new port for RetroArch (frontend) and it's libretro core (emulators). The Nightly Releases are consider TESTING builds [break]sss[/break] as they are auto compiled at the end of each day hints the term "Nightly Releases" and some auto-compiled releases could cause procblems at times while in devlopment. So if you are easily discourage when you run into bugs, then you should await for when this port makes an official release.


Several weeks ago Vita developer skogaby released a Work in Progress build of Snes9xVita, since that time the emulator port has matured to version v1.0.0 with plenty of improvements since that initial WIP build. The emulator has the ability to utilized the unlocked 444MHz that Rejuvenate v0.3.3 brought. Also the ability to Save and Load game states is working, along with a nice UI and other features [break]ddd[/break] seen in the logs provided in the release quote found below:


Well seems the Vita is the newest hotspot for homebrew these days on the PS Vita thanks to Rejuvenate. So here is the first native GBA emulator thanks to developer endright and seems to be seeing numerous updates at a daily pace. Please note the developer has also ported this to the 3DS and Wii as well. Please keep in mind this is only for GBA and GB/GBC games and is unsupported. If you are looking for that then please see xerpi's Realboy emulator.

It seems the Vita scene is absolutely on fire as of late with tons of new apps and information being released. Seems Proxima has released yet another of the PS Vita's keys. (index.dat & HMAC keysets) cfwprophet is here with another tool to help implement its use for the Vita end users. I hope to see more of this from the scene [break].[/break]as they have proven it is a very capable system and some of the devs behind or beloved PS3's are now migrating to the Vita scene. Exciting times seem to be ahead especially with cooperation instead of segregation. Maybe an end to the petty feuds over ego that have plagued the scene since the PSP 6.20 HEN days, only time will tell. Till then lets enjoy the ride and see just how far these guys can take the "legacy" system Sony seems to have left behind.


Here is the index.dat keysets if you would like to add them to your Vita keys folder as this application only contains the HMAC keyset.

Developers Major_Tom and Mr.Gas released EML File Generator last month it's a tool used on your PC that will allow you to write files directly to the PS Vita & PSTV's memory cards. Well it seems cfwprophet has added another update to this nifty tool that allows for drop and drag support. The steps required is to use the tool to select a file that you want to write, insert the desired path and then generate the EML file. After that use a email trick to do the rest. [break].[/break]You can find a tutorial here. Recent updates bring the tool to version 0.4 with some improvements.

As the Rejuvenate exploit continues to evolve on the PS Vita and also the PlayStation TV (aka VitaTV), it has been attracting development in various areas and the latest project to be announced is a Vita/PSTV port of RetroArch. The other day I was searching on the libretro forums and came across this thread, where someone was asking about a Vita port, sadly the devs could not develop a port without a PS Vita that they did not posses . So the staff here at did the next best thing and donated a PlayStationTV[break]ss[/break] so development could begin on the PSTV and Vita as they have very similar hardware.

Recently as that development has began there has been some progress made public by libretro developer hunterk as he details some of the movements made by Squarepusher (aka TwinAphex) and xerpi on these ports. An interesting detail that was shared is that the port does have dynarec support, something it's PS3 counterpart has been lacking.. So great news for Retro Fans who want to play those classics on your current hardware in the future. Keep in mind this is still early and could take some polishing as you are talking about many cores (emulators) but nonetheless this is very exciting news for the Vita Homebrew Community.
