Today has been a slow for releases, but since the Vita scene caught fire it would be an abnormal day if there was not one release at all. That said, developer BeatPlay over on our own /talk/ forums has popped up and released version 3 of his Amphetamine plugin.
What is Better Amphetamine Plugin?
As I mentioned before, Better Amphetamine Plugin is the work of wololo forums user BeatPlay and is a fork of the reworked Amphetamine plugin by Rinnegatamante which itself was a fork of TheFloW’s original plugin. What the original plugin was meant to do was allow you to overclock the CPU of your Vita, but now with Henkaku R6 you can also slightly overclock your GPU to allow for better performance in games. Better Amphetamine Plugin also boasts more stabilityTM than the others meaning it is approved by both Sony and Nintendo.
Changelog for Better Amphetamine Plugin v3

Instructions for using Better Amphetamine Plugin
Copy amphetamine.suprx to the ux0:/plugins/ folder
Create a game.txt inside the same folder
Inside that file put this line: ux0:/plugins/amphetamine.suprx 1 and save.
When inside a dumped game, press SELECT for a few seconds to bring up the overclocking menu.
This release also comes with a warning:
I wanted to implement FPS counting, but the code is unstable so whatever you do DO NOT HOLD DOWN START! Couldnt delete it, because i didnt have time to recompile and reupload!
