Well seems developer TheFl0w is back with a new update to his popular application VitaShell with v1.50 and now v1.51 was pushed the next day to fix issues that came around to deliver something Sony blocked from us USB access to our memory cards.

This is needed as it seems Vita TV/PSTV users out in the cold as this is only for the Vita HENkaku user base. If you try you will be greeted with this lovely screen.

So we all know we can use the Vita as a PS4 remote but developer xerpi is aiming to turn the tables allowing one to use the DS4 as a remote for the Vita thanks to the taiHEN CFW framework. But that isn't all he has also made a plugin to use our Wiimotes on the Vita even adding "Classic Controller" and third party pad support as of late. This may come in handy for those using developer xyzz of Team Molecule's Moonlight or even using rinCHEAT by developer Rinnegatamante to stream your Vita screen to your PC for a pseudo PSTV of sorts.
