Well if you are like me and have been eagerly awaiting a way to use external storage space seems it may be closer than we all think. Vita Developer "TheFlow" has not said if this is specifically for the PlayStation TV or the PS Vita. It could be for both systems for all I know as he is known for being cryptic and sarcastic but the picture does display a television and the new feature he has added into VitaShell. So for now keep your fingers crossed and hope this is for both. If anything else should arrive at as always I will keep you informed.​
Well I reported earlier this week famed Vita hacker Yifan Lu released Netcheck Bypass that allowed certain apps or games to be used again like Vita Media Server. It did not however allow one to use PS4 Link on your system. While the theory was it was a "token" used to activate this it seems that simply was not the case.

Well now the hacker has written up a nice little guide on how to use this feature again with a little work on the end users side. It should be noted the Netcheck Bypass can still be used to bypass the annoying nag screen prompting for PSN sign in with this guide
The RetroArch/Libretro Team has released an OPEN BETA for v1.4.1 of the popular multi-system emulator, that spans many platforms. This Open Beta contains a port for the PlayStation Portable (PSP) and also the PS Vita / PlayStation TV Port, which does not contain an N64 emulator yet, but it's being worked on. When the announcement of the came of a N64 emu, it was days prior to the work that unlocked GPU which will allow apps like emulators to use the hardware to aid in emulation versus relying on software rendering which even with software rendering the n64 emu did show alot of promises, but no need to perfect the software but instead go after the GPU. So not only should we seen a N64 emu but others systems as well. But that is not what this update is about but i am sure would be one of the first thing looked and asked about in this update so i wanted to give a bit more on the status of that project. Now there is not a PS3

So Yifan lu has released a Netcheck Bypass despite stating he would only be working on hacking F00D, the equivalent to lv0 on the PS3 which might spell checkmate for our beloved systems for those of us that stayed on 3.60, as for those that went to 3.61+ it might not be the same story due to Sony changing the keys an authentification of the PlayStation Network after the initial release of the hack.
