Rejuvenate 0.3.3 is out and it unlocks the 444 MHz CPU mode for 3.30+
Rejuvenate we all love and use for our precious Vita has been updated to version 0.3.3. Biggest change is the ability to change CPU, GPU and bus clock frequencies so the 444 MHz CPU mode can be unlocked on PSM Unity 1.06 which requires 3.30+ firmware.
It has been sometime since we began to enjoy the native homebrews on Vita via Rejuvenate. What most people wondered was the exact CPU speed available to Vita. That is what Yifan Lu said about the CPU and GPU speeds:
Vita CPU clock speed is 333MHz by default and ranges 41-444MHz by PMC. GPU 111MHz and ranges 41-222MHz. Thanks to xyz for the tests.

So rejuvenate homebrew is restricted to 333 MHz by default. With the release of Rejuvenate 0.3.3, homebrew is now allowed to set the CPU speed to 444 MHz. This allows a speed boost to the existing emulators. Of course emulators need to be updated to take advantage of this new feature. Downside is, it is only available for PSM Unity 1.06 which needs 3.30-3.51 firmware to run. So no candy for 3.18/3.20 firmwares which a lot of users including me insist to stay on.
One of the emulators which can use the 444 MHz CPU mode is Genesis Plus GX for Vita.

Let’s hope 3.18/3.20 fw Vita users can enjoy this 444 Mhz mode with PSM Unity 1.05 in the future. Meanwhile don’t forget to download Rejuvenate 0.3.3 if you are a lucky PSM Unity 1.06 user.
