Total_Noob brings the XMB to your Vita, looks for a trusted dev for help

Total_Noob, famous developer of the CEF (Custom firmware within the PSP emulator of the Vita) is back with a project to bring the convenient PSP XMB to the PSP emulator on the Vita.

The first screenshot (see below) is pretty impressive, and I know it’s a feature many of us have been dreaming of. But this is still a work in progress and there are lots of obstacles to bring the XMB back to the Vita.

The idea is basically to copy some modules from a PSP 6.60 firmware, probably reverse engineer them a little bit to fix/remove the parts that don’t make sense as well as get them to communicate correctly with the PSP emulator on the Vita. Of course, distribution of such files (once the project is ready) might become problematic, as they will surely contain some code and graphics from Sony, but that’s something that will need to be addressed when the project is complete.

psp-xmb-on-vita

Total_Noob will be busy with real life and has to put the project on hold for now. He is looking for a trusted dev of the PSP/Vita scene to help him continue the work. If you have what it takes, you can contact him through the source below.

So what do you think? Pretty cool, right?

      You’re never going to see PS2 emulation on the vita. It is nowhere near powerful enough.

        actually, it is possible and some sources close to sony have told wololo that sony is actually working on a ps2 emulator for the vita and/or the ps3

          It’s not technically possible. The only way to have Ps2 games on the Vita would be to Port them.

      It just puts the xmb dashbord to your vita. As opposed to the current launching system.

    will there ever be any jailbreak without exploits???

    1. garrei’s avatar

      sigh, a jailbreak means to bypass security using an exploit. You need to find an exploit to perform any kind of hack. -_-

      Ihope this does lead to psp iso exploit for the vita as getting the psp psn game exploits are not possible in some countries….

    xmb would be a godsend. the current TN menu works fine for me, minus an annoying bug that crashes the CEF whenever moving a backup to ms0 or deleting a backup/homebrew. Using pspdoxmanager circumvents this, but I hope that with the xmb will come greater functionality as well as compatibility. It would certainly bring a tear of nostalgia to this gamer

    NICE! This could mean that we can see a new batch of custom xmb themes coming soon too, assume that it would be possible to install these within the PSP-emu.

    I was really hoping this was going to happen, as much as the custom menus work great the ability to have XMB would be awesome as it is just a great menu system!!

    Sony should learn a lesson and use it instead of this blob menu system in the Vita!

    Again very nice work TN. This is a feature my vita’s cannot be w/o. It would be so awesome to load up uno or MBA, and be able to use the XMB just like we did on psp. MY only ? is if u scroll to games will they show up as they did on the psp, with PIC1.PNG, and PIC0.PNG. I wonder if the music that played while viewing a game icon will work to. But anyways nice job dude, I hope swomeone can see this thru to fruition! Congrats bro!
