Developer ‘devnoname120’ updated Vita Homebrew Browser to 0.8 up from 0.7 that was published for GekiHEN as the absolute last entry. We can safely say that GekiHEN ended on a very good note as Vita Homebrew Browser got the most votes in the GekiHEN utility/hack section.
What’s Vita Homebrew Browser?
It’s a piece of software for taiHEN Vitas that takes the annoyance out of installing (and discovering) new software. Thanks to this homebrew, gone are the days in which you browsed the internet looking for homebrew and had to manually install it. That process involved another device (for FTP or USB access) and having to install a VPK which is much more tedious than a simple tap on an ‘Install’ button. Thanks to this homebrew, you can install (and read about) any homebrew in VitaDB. It’s important to note that the maintainer of VitaDB (the homebrew source for Vita Homebrew Browser) isn’t the same as the creator of this homebrew! Rinnegatamante is the owner and maintainer of VitaDB so issues with the service itself should be reported to him.
