It’s quite hard to believe that the homebrew scene of the Vita has ended up so big in just a few months. Thanks to hard working developers, the portable got some life back by appealing to people that like homebrew on their device. With developing scenes, there’s always stuff to look forward to such as PSVShell and Ultimate VSH Menu; both by ‘Joel16’.
PSVShell is an alternate file manager for the PSVita. It’s relatively sleek and shares the UI of Android’s Material UI, more specifically CyanogenMod’s (now Lineage OS) design. With this file manager, you can do all the usual file manager things such as copying and pasting files and even MP3 playback which is a plus since the stock Music app requires you to import music via QCMA. PSVShell, in my opinion, has one advantage over VitaShell and that is a sleek UI that allows for a cleaner and more pleasing GUI. It may be a tad simpler but sometimes simpler is actually better, in my opinion at least.

What’s Ultimate VSH Menu?
As the title suggests, it’s a version of the PSP’s iconic VSH menu that many of us remember. Right now, it’s not really functional but hopefully, it’ll be a thing in the future 🙂 Joel16 is known to be a hard worker so let’s keep our fingers crossed that Ultimate VSH Menu sees the light of day!

It’s relatively simple, just press on the links below and check them every now and again. An article is bound to be up when they get released so you can be assured you won’t be missing anything. On other news, the first wave of HENkaku Ensō builds have been distributed and you can read more about people’s experiences in the Reddit link below.
I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.
