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.
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.
