Recently there was a replacement menu released for those running a ARK-2 exploit on their PS Vita's. Developed by Gdljjrod, ONEMenu is a sleek menu that also allows you to perform tasks such as homebrew deletion and installation. It also allows seamless installation of ISO and CSO's without the need of PKG installation. The auto launch feature for games and apps is a very neat feature so be sure to hit up the [break][/break]select button to bring up the config menu for more things to do. The installation is painless too, you can check that out below.


After its release jvhellraiser released some nicely themed versions of ONEMenu so be sure to take a look at these.



Another theme just popped up by Lazer, aka ‏@aymer000.

PS Vita developer Xana has released a ARK based Homebrew Launcher with kernel access, which allows for the launching of "ISOs, CSOs, Homebrew Eboots and even PS1 Eboots (with no sound) from a bubble". There are available files (w source included) for exploited FW's 3.18 and 3.36. View all the details of this impressive launcher with kernel access in [break]dd[/break] the quote provided below from Xana release.


Developer Leecherman, aka LMAN, has released a handy tool for those of you wanting to create bubbles on your PS Vita's. This tool is only for those running firmware 3.18 and below and requires TN-V. This is a great tool for those wanting a simplified way of getting ISO's and homebrew loaded via bubbles.[break][/break]


From the readme:
Updated: 2.3 Out. For those of you running the bubble exploits on your PS Vita's here is a quick update to a homebrew loader by qwikrazor87. This homebrew loader will get you running homebrew as bubbles on your Vita and requires you to create clones should you want to run more than one homebrew using this method. Version 2.2 adds support for firmware version 3.36.


Another exploited PSP Game was announced for Vita Firmware v3.36 by Vita developer Qwikrazor, following the "Arcade Dart" exploit. That is currently still available for purchase on the PS Store but now you have an additional choice as the developer has an exploit ready for "Hot Brain"also. This game is only available in the North American PS Store. So if you have not scooped up on either of these recent exploits and are wondering what path is best; take the [break]ss[/break] words from The Z over at as he has pointed out the Hot Brain exploit you do not need another base game, similar to how the recent Numblast exploit worked. Where as exploits, like in the case of Arcade Darts needs another base game. So that is one thing to consider before choosing between the two exploits, but act fast as Sony has a history of pulling these games quickly after these exploits are announced. This exploit will have the same functionality of running ARK eCFW as the Arcade Darts exploit allows, so need to grab this on if you took advantage of the the recent Arcade Dart Exploit, .

This exploited game is a key piece needed to get ARK-2 eCFW working on 3.36 firmware. [break]d[/break] The significance also in this exploited game is some of you may have it already as this was a previously exploit game that the developer was able to re-purpose. Checkout the details below from the developer and some additional notes by The Z over @


PS Vita developer Qwikrazor has a new "kernel mode" exploit running on Vita Firmware v3.36, the exploit is used for running the "ARK-2 eCFW" via the PSP Emulator which allows for running your PSP Backups as ISOs / CSOs and PS1 Games as PBPs but with the downside of having no sound on your PlayStation 1 Games. However, things like PS1loader, PKG Installer or usage of the Webkit Exploit are not supported [break]d[/break]. The Z over at say this exploit works on all model PS Vita devices and also the PlayStation TV (aka Vita TV). Checkout all all the details below and also at the source links provided.


Sometimes I'm just at a loss of words when it comes to Sony and their constant removal of features for their devices. PS3 had allot taken away, the PS4 has many left out and now the struggling PS Vita is their next victim. The PS Vita YouTube app has been taken down and unavailable for download and will not be supported come April 20th. Well at least it was not April 1st I guess. Then in the next tidbit of news is [break][/break]the PS Vita Maps and Near applications that will be eradicated form your handheld in a upcoming firmware update in March. The only good news there is the mention of the firmware update, so scene developers please take note and not release any exploits unless you want them patched by Sony.
