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.
Noled is a recent kernel plugin released for the PS Vita created originally by Xerpi, and then has been released in compiled version by reprep (@ReRepRep). This taiHEN (kernel) plugin is very simple as it can becomes very useful when you are gaming or watching video's in the dark and the led light becomes a major distraction. Now you have the option to say goodbye to light while you have this plugin running.
The latest homebrew release for HENkaku user's comes from developer vladgalay, who has released a very fun 2d Shooter that is very similar to the game playplay in CSPSP (a homebrew for the PSP), which is a 2-D top down shooter. Flyer Deathmatch is a LUA based game that was created with ONElua and i suggest giving this game a look on either your PS Vita or PlayStation TV that hopefully is on Firmware 3.60 and utilizing the HENkaku exploit as that is the only way you will be playing this VPK file.
Plugin development continues to evolve, as it only seems fitting to bring a VSH Menu to HENkaku (not on LiveArea quite yet) and developer Joel16 is here to make that happen with this new taiHEN plugin called the Ultimate VSH Menu. Following the initial announcement developer Joel16 has since released a test version labeled version 0.00. as the developer has additional plans and functions of this early POC. We seen Total_Noob bring us the VSH menu long ago on the PSP and in recent years we have seen @3141card bring us VSH menu to the PS3 and the main goal is to offer functionality quickly and onscreen. This should be very interesting to see evolve as this is no doubt the start of a welcome project.​
During the GekiHEN Contest plugin entries was a fairly light area of development, but in recent we have been seeing a number of developer's creating excellent TaiHEN plugins, some devs that come to quick mind are Joel16 and reprep who have had several new plugins but also Rinnegatamante continues to create many useful plugins for the exploited Vita /Pstv devices. Now with Screenie Rinnegatamante gives us the ability to take HD quality ScreenShots.
Not a huge update to Vita Homebrew Browser (A recent GekiHEN Contest winning app) but a critical bug was present that would prevent some homebrew titles such as PickrVITA, Numpty Physics to name a few from loading creating a crash of the VHBB application, So, devnoname120 has addressed this issue with the vpk release of v0.81. To use VHBB you must have a HENkaku enabled PS Vita or PlayStation TV (VitaTV) running 3.60 FW.
Looking at recent commits on TheFlow's github You can see that developer hyln9 added very nice feature to both Adrenaline plugin, and Vitashell app. New feature is mounting imc0: which looks like internal memory card, and can give us another 1GB on slim PSV and on PSTV. Actually is very good idea because when external memory is used that 1GB of space is totally unused.​
Shortly after the release of the HENkaku exploit, developer meetpatty updated the Numpty Physics port from the previous Rejuvenate Exploit (an exploit now out dated and replaced by HENkaku) for comparability with HENkaku exploit with the release of version 0.3 (May 16 2016), Now since developer Rinnegatamante has picked up the project and with this release of v0.4 it contains some Bug Fixes, but stay tuned as some future updates are in the works as the dev shares a small roadmap of changes planned. Checkout the details of this game that now has me thinking about Eskiss on the PS3 (for the PS3 homebrew user's out there).Checkout the download in Vita DB by Rinnegatamante where you can find all his homebrew and most of the Vita / PlayStation TV homebrew Community has to offer.
