    Developer GrapheneCt has released BGFTP, a new FTP server that works in the background. It does not matter if your in-game or sleep mode or hanging around the Live Area, The FTP transfers are always working while the developer says this will not impact any performance of the running task, but does add a warning that transfer can be slowed down since they are running on Reserved System Cores and will be knocked to low priority on those reserves, but nonetheless a great way to transfer files from your PC (or other devices servicing as a FTP server) to either your homebrew enabled PS Vita or the PlayStation TV (aka vita tv)..


    • BGFTP
      Background FTP server for PS Vita. Works simultaneously with any game, including enlarged memory mode games, and in sleep mode. Runs on system-reserved core, so performance in games is not affected. BGFTP can send various information to user via notifications.
      Can be somewhat slow when cpu-hungry game process is running due to BGFTP process having low priority.

      How to use

      1. Install LowMemMode plugin to increase multitasking abilities. It is not required, but highly recommended.
      2. Intstall .vpk, start BGFTP application.
      3. Press X button to start BGFTP background application.
      4. Now you can use BGFTP.
      To disable notifications, go to Settings -> Notifications -> BGFTP. Don't forget to terminate BGFTP after you finished using it, otherwise you system will not switch to sleep mode.

      BGFTP background application can be terminated under following conditions:

      1. LiveArea of the main application is peeled off.
      2. Enlarged memory mode game is started. BGFTP can be relaunched afterwards if you have LowMemMode plugin installed.

      This application use modified versions of libftpvita and libvita2d by xerpi.
