VitaShell 1.3.1 is out, zip file creation added
Even though developer TheFlow claimed from October on he wouldn’t be able to work on either VitaShell or Vitamin and therefore was opening development to whomever wanted to pick it up, in a surprise to pretty much everyone, he just released two updates to VitaShell, a major 1.3 update followed by a bug-fixing 1.3.1 update. The most noteworthy features to be added in tis milestone build of the application adds information about the used space/total space of each partition along with the ability to create zip files aswell. A option to install an entire folder (I’m assuming containing VPK files, for batch installation) has also been added.
What is VitaShell?
VitaShell is a file manager and FTP server for the PS Vita (and now a music player too!), which can be used as a replacement for molecularShell in HENkaku. The molecularShell distributed with HENkaku is actually a fork of VitaShell. VitaShell also won the Revitalize competition last year.
Changelog for VitaShell 1.3.1
- Added ability to compress files and folders into a zip archive.
- Added scanning for unsafe fself’s and imports.
- Added lrc support for audio player by Mayoshiroi.
- Added partition used/total size information, thanks to littlebalup.
- Added ‘Install folder’ by soarqin.
- Touching the screen on dialogs would abort the process, fixed.
If when opening VitaShell, it did not ask to auto-update itself (many people who use Henkaku have their Vitas disconnected most of the time) you can get the latest VPK by clicking here. If you come across any issues I also remind you you can report them on the issue tracker located here.
