    I have been waiting for this since the first day I bought PS TV.
    It’s a great system, once the limits of storage will be solved it will be the smallest and most powerful console around

    This is exactly the reason I was holding my PS TV on 3.60.

    I’m going to assume this will let us install and execute from the mass storage. If so, gonna drop for a couple of 64GB flash drives and load’em up. Just did a price check on USB flash drives and high capacity drives for 2.0 are dirt cheap.

    PS4 gets external mass storage and now so does PSTV.

    Roll on Vita TV Pro.

    that stupid perv he didn’t even mention the New Adrenaline Update at this Feb

    64mb ram and PSX support

    Awesome news. I knew it would be coming sometime or another, and with how TheFlow works this may hit earlier than expected like the vita usb mass storage did.

    Nice this would be useful, but I have a method since day1 that I’ve been using to tranfer from PC to PSTV vita Lan cable using the settings from the PS3 Lan cable setup. Thanks Yifan!

    Excellent news!

    Bought a new PSTV just because of these news. 30 euros brand new sealed. As for storage, if this works a 64GB Usb Flash drive will be the best.

    waiting to make this a complete ps1 collection device with wireless controller 😀

    Wololo, you forgot about one of the earlier reports you shared? The Gen 1 vita has a full set of USB data and power lines tied to the EXT port. All it would take is some light soldering to get USB from it.

    Wow have so badly wanted this since dayone of the 3.6 hack. I had a PSTV and got a second new one off ebay a few months back for $40. PSTV is so under appreciated as a micro console but the real bottleneck (as with vita) is the memory cost.

    Ok so here is the real question. Wll we be able to run code off the UMA0: drive? I would guess anything decrypted should be able to run? I hope so as I see 128gb lowprofile usb with lots of psp, ps1, and vita goodness!!!!

    Now that they have Vita GPU support for homebrew can we get a good streaming player now, like a xbmc port?

    Hey here is something else you guys may not know but you can run a PSTV off a decent usb battery pacl. It has to have 2a output and then use a usb to psp power cord and bingo. A 20000mah pack would run it for close to 10hrs. Useful for RV or car, camping.

    If we can execute code from pstv usb port it just became one kick *** micro console!!!! Go Fl0w Go

    Uma Uma Yay, Uma uma uma yay 😀

    I’ve had my PS Vita since launch, however I was never willing to purchase any of the memory cards that were above 8 gigs. However, since I already owned a Vita, I didn’t feel the need to get the PSTV. Even with Henkaku, I was unwilling to upgrade the memory card in my system just due to the ridiculous cost of getting one with a decent amount of storage.

    With this news, I decided to use a spare Gamestop Gift Card I had (It’s amazing how many gift cards I get from friends and family) and purchase a new PSTV for ~$50. I figured it was worth the cost, even if this doesn’t come into fruition (Which I’m pretty certain by the flow’s track record that it will), I got a way to play Vita games on my TV that was cheaper than a 64 gig memory card.

    TL;DR Gamestop has new PSTV’s for $50, and I don’t imagine they’re going to get cheaper from here on out.

    How hard would it be to use the vita as a remote for the pstv? Seems like a cool hack, make it think it’s a dualshock or something? Would make it like a nintendo switch

    So, any update to this, is it still on track, don’t want to buy a console and this to not end up being released 😛
