    CFW please and cheaper storage 🙂

    A cheap storage method would be great, but i’d like a more efficient way to play backups, be able to update and install dlc like the 3ds.

    as long as users as protected from unnecessary access from malicious homebrews automatically and not just via warning that can still be skip users will be wary of new homebrews and might affect homebrew development.

    do normal user really need access to those partition and extra permission just play homebrew or their pirated games?
    cant we have a normal Henkaku with limited access and a dev denkaku with extra access mush like rebug and normal cfw

    Which game is the one displayed in the emu picture? Or is it just a demo?

    cheap storage is what most people would look for imo.
    i have a 64 gb its ore then enough but not everyone wants to spend that kind of money just for storage.
    A cfw would be cool but not really necessary as henkaku is fine by me the way it is.
    what would be really cool is a memorycard to usb adapter for a hdd on the pstv!

      How long have u had the 64gb card? Mine lasted 2 years then died, but with all this excitement with henkaku Im tempted to bend over for Sony and get another one

    How about the mystery port of PCH-1000?

    I think this is stupid but what if we can make from game carts into sd card adapter like cobra black fin?

    Id be interested if an android port would be possible at all, vast library of games.

    Bluetoth keyboard and mouase contability in everything, even apps and games!
    And a Notepad++ editor for the psvita so you can programm lua scripts without the hassle
    to ftp the data around…vitashell only allow to use the keyboard when pressed (x)

    >nano SD card
    wait what?

    YouTube homebrew again.
    Rss reader, with audio and video playback.
    Stream videos from NAS
    better browser (hard one)
    Ftp/file manager with touchscreen (no pc needed)
    Kai (online server) like.
    Hardware add-on for R2 / L2 (it’s your fault Sony) for ps1 and ps4 games.

    We need an updated tutorial on battery mod that uses a Samsung battery instesd of the psp. Also no pcb is the okd tutorial even safe to use?

    It would be great if someone could find a way to access the USB port on PSTV, potentially this coul be easier than a memory stick adapter…

    PSTV already reads data from the USB but apparently only firware updates…

    • nebu_187

      Yes I have read somewhere that its impossible because its not connected in the right way on the circuit board.
      so i think without hardware mod no way.
      But hey that would be the easiest if it could be done

      • Darko

        I’m not sure about this… voltage polarity is correct (otherwise it could not recharge joypads)

        The only other supported function is updating the firware from USB… if it can read and install firmware data why could it NOT read other data from USB? accessing the USB (even as a read only memory) would be a cheap and practical solution to expensive memory stick… moreover if some sort of media player would arise we would have a small little box packed with functions…

        at the moment
