Wondering what you should be running on that freshly hacked Vita or PSP? Here is a list of the best 10 homebrews as voted by you in October 2012.
I’m wondering if there’s a single one of our Top 10 where Bookr wasn’t here.
This awesome PDF reader works on the PSP, as well as on the Vita (either through TotalNoob’s CEF, or with VHBL), and actually fills a void in the PSP/Vita official apps (I’m still amazed Sony did not offer a pdf reader on their devices…)

More than a year after its release, this Minecraft Clone is still one of the most popular homebrews ever. People running a Custom Firmware on their PSP, or Total_Noob’s CEF might want to give a try to one of its most famous mods, S4inexCraft

5. Total_Noob’s CEF, the eCFW for the Vita
With no surprise, Total_Noob’s work makes it to this top 10 this month. Earlier this month, Total_Noob opened the PSP emulator in the Vita to allow us to play all our PSP homebrews and plugins, and it seems I was not the only one to like this release.

Virtuous Flame’s tool to copy files to and from your PS Vita without being connected to the internet has been one of the most popular tools for the Vita since it came out. Besides the “gray area” uses for those of us who don’t want to be forced to update our firmwares when Sony feels like it, there are many perfectly legit reasons to not want to be connected to the internet while you copy files between two devices you own.
