Every month we publish a list of the best Vita and PSP homebrews as voted by our community over the previous month. You can add your own homebrews to our /downloads Database, and vote for your favorite ones. This doesn’t require any login.

This month, we’re starting to see native vita homebrews, and I would expect this trend to increase in the months to come :)

Check out this month’s most popular homebrews and releases, as rated by our community below.

10. Vita Update Blocker

This application does what Charles Proxy Trick does but without the hassle.

Also this is Python based cross-platform application so you can even install this application to 24/7 running server to access PSN anyhwere.FEATURES
Automatically detects latest OFW version and Vita version. Can block other requests than update information for prevent server is being used as normal HTTP proxy server.

This basically lets you access the PSN on a lower firmware psvita.

Vita Update Blocker can be downloaded here

9. SCE PS Vita – Hardware – Josh_Axey

Not an actual homebrew, this is Josh Axey’s entire analysis of the PS Vita Hardware. From the Readme:

This cataloguing (which is mostly complete) has been a long time coming.
I have promised to dedicate the time to doing it for a while and to a few. Here it is, more or less.

8. gpsp

Gameboy Advance Emulator

7. Open CMA

A patch by Virtuous Flame to prevent the PS Vita Content Manager Assistant from connecting to the internet.

The PS Vita comes with a system to copy save files that requires you to be connected permanently to the internet. This system is here to force you to update the Vita when a new version is available. In addition, it might be inconvenient for you to be constantly connected when you want to copy your files from and to the Vita. This patch is here to help you with this situation

Installation:

– extract the archive in your CMA folder (program files/Sony/Content Manager Assistant by default)

– quit the CMA if it is running on your PC

– execute “run.bat” (you need to run it in “Admin mode” on windows 7

– That’s it, now the CMA should run without requiring to be connected to the internet

Open CMA can be downloaded here

6. Rejuvenate

rejuvenate running homebrew on ps vita
Rejuvenate native hack for the PS Vita

Rejuvenate can be downloaded here

5. CyanogenMod PSP C

This isn’t a port of CyanogenMod for android, it’s a project created from scratch. It will never allow you to run android apps, the psp system doesn’t have the hardware capabilities to run android. It’s purpose is similar to that of “iR Shell”, but with a UI inspired by CyanogenMod. If developers are interested, feel free to contact me through my email: sauskethunderkid@gmail.com

CyanogenMod PSP C can be downloaded here

4. psp2sdk

psp2sdk
The Scene SDK for Vita Native homebrew development

psp2sdk can be downloaded here

3. PSP File Manager/Extractor

Basic File manager for psp, that lets you browse files, delete files and extract .zip/.rar files.

PSP File Manager/Extractor can be downloaded here

2. Lamecraft

If you know the PC game Minecraft, you will feel at ease with this genesis entry which reuses the same concept: allowing grownups to play with blocks like little kids. LameCraft is basically a sandbox that allows you to build a 3D world to your liking.

Lamecraft can be downloaded here

1. Minecraft PSP – [LC Mod]

Joel16’s mods based on Drakon’s game (Lamecraft, PSP’s popular Minecraft homebrew clone) are to enhance lamecraft’s graphics and gameplay, and give it a more ‘minecrafty’ feeling.

Credits go to Drakon for his amazing project.

Hi people,

I mentioned that we’re doing a closed beta of PSM+. The people who have had the opportunity to try the mechanism have reported a few bugs, some of them critical.

Please keep in mind that the system in place requires some heavy synchronization between Major_Tom, YifanLu, Mr.Gas, and myself. We’re all extremely busy with real life (as far as I’m personally concerned, I’ve been waking up at 6am every morning for the past few weeks just so I can handle this release) so finding time to understand and fix the bugs, plus surfacing the bug fixes back to the server, is kind of a long process.

The following bugs have been reported:

  1. The first step of getting the psm+ license, in addition to letting you download a zip file, is supposed to send you an email. Several people have reported that they never got the email. This seems to be an encoding issue. Major_Tom will not have the time to look into this until tomorrow. People have had better luck using gmail as their email service, it seems. Again, this is a known issue and Major_Tom will look into it in the days to come.
  2. Some people have reported that psm+ doesn’t work for their specific version of the PSM Dev assistant. This should definitely work on 3.51 with PSM Dev Assistant 1.21, but I’m a bit unsure about other versions. Major_Tom has fixed a particular file (and it’s up on the server as of today), which should improve compatibility. Please keep in mind that Rejuvenate is not compatible with all versions of the PSM Dev assistant. Check the Rejuvenate readme!

Please understand that these bugs are delaying the beta: There’s no point in opening it up to more people if the system doesn’t work.

vita hack rejuvenate

On the brighter side: Major_Tom has updated psm+ to work with the PSM Dev App for Unity. We are testing it and once I’m confident things are ok, I’ll surface it to the beta testers.

Here again, keep in mind that Rejuvenate, as of now, is not compatible with the PSM Unity. It needs to be ported, and YifanLu has made it clear that he won’t have the time for that. Other hackers, with more free time, need to step up.

The last two months were like a roller coaster.
Hundreds of people here on wololo.net and other web pages were asking questions about how to install PSM Dev, which one and so on.
People gets easily excited and when things go wrong (or they just think that way), get annoyed pretty fast.
I’m visiting this page a few times daily and I’ve learned that there is always an option (but don’t update to 3.52! ), sooner or later.

And when you are in a hurry, you will make mistakes. This time or another.
I have bought a Vita in a hurry and paid more than I should. I thought that if I didn’t get it then my chance to have one with the golden firmware 3.18 would be zero. and there wouldn’t be any eCFW, PS Loaders and stuff like that. I was wrong and I’ve learned my lesson.

I didn’t get the publisher licence as I was just a few hours late. A few weeks later I read that it wouldn’t be necessary.

Now, it seems that you can install PSM Dev for Unity through the package installer. And there is a way for 3.36 to run package installer that maybe be disclosed sometime in the future.

If I see someone asking a question I’m trying to help. You will never see me telling other visitor or member to update. That’s the last thing that crosses my mind when I’m trying to help. I know it could be hard to find information that you need, that’s why there is a forum. Most of the time your question was asked (like 100 times already).

Rejuvenate is a great thing. I would even say that it is the best thing that happened to Vita after release. The future of Vita is bright.

You can’t do much with it now as a user. It will take months, maybe years to exploit it fully with great emulators.
So, fellow Vita owner’s, there is no need to hurry. We all need to relax a bit.
There are nice deals on Japanese games on EU PS Stores. Grab some at half price and play.

That’s what Vita is for.

PS. Now I need a hardware hacker to hack microsd cards into Vita memory slot.

Hey people. I finally found the time to put in place the files sent to me by Major_Tom, Mr.Gas, and Yifanlu for PSM+.

What is PSM+?

PSM+ allows you to access PSM and PSM Unity (coming soon) without a license from Sony. This means you can develop and test with the PSM SDK and PSM for Unity without a publisher license–even after Sony shuts down developer access. Additionally, it allows for hacks such as Rejuvenate to work on any device with PSM DevAssistant installed for unrestricted native homebrew.
You must be running firmware 3.51 or lower and have PSM DevAssistant installed on your PS Vita. We are currently working on support for PSM Unity.

Rejuvenate hack

Where do I access PSM+?

As of now, the PSM+ functionality can be accessed only on a “by invite” basis. This is to limit the amount of traffic, and fix potential bugs before this goes public. Long story short, the release is working a bit like our traditional Ninja releases.

If things look normal, I will progressively open access to more and more people, until the page becomes “public”.

I need to emphasize, however, that to access the PSM+ pages, you will need a /talk account, even after the beta is over. This is not a lame attempt at getting more members on our forums, but a security measure: the PSM+ system is slightly intense on the CPU, so we need to have some reasonable way to control who accesses it, how often, etc.

PSM+ works by sending you some files by email, and letting you download other files directly to your computer. The email is sent to the email address you registered at wololo.net, but you need to open the email on your PS Vita. If you use a different email address for your wololo.net/talk account and on your Vita, you can simply forward the email to your vita account.

Because of how DRMs work with PSM, you will unfortunately need to use PSM+ every day (or at least, every day you want to use rejuvenate) to get a fresh license. Did I mention this was CPU intensive? Maybe one day we’ll find a way against this limitation, but for now this will be needed.

How do I know if I’m in the beta?

You should see a message “PSM+ Closed Beta” at the top of every single page of /talk. Again, remember that I will keep adding new members to the beta regularly, until we finally open PSM+ to everyone.

Our good friend Mr.gas and his french colleague TomTomdu80 (also known as Major Tom) just released yet another brilliant piece of software for the Playstation Vita.

Thanks to their EML file generator and a neat E-mail application trick, it will be possible to write files directly to the PS Vita’s memory card!

EML-file-generator-hack-VITA

If you think we could already do this, then you are wrong. This allows you to write to the ux0:/ directory of the Playstation Vita, not the ePSP’s ms0:/ directory, which would be ux0:/pspemu/ by the way.

While it is nice to be able to write directly to the Vita’s memory card, one might ask oneself what this can be abused for? Well…

rejuvenate running homebrew on ps vita

Let’s say you can unlink a memory card from a specific firmware, which enables you to swap memory card without being forced to format the memory card or update the PS Vita system software.

In theory this should also enable you to unlink the memory card from your PSN account. Those are just a few extras functions, to be honest.

(logo credits: egarrote from elotrolado.net)

(logo credits: egarrote from elotrolado.net)

The main part of the EML file generator was pretty much to enable you guys to install the PSM Dev for Unity application (necessary for Rejuvenate), which has been removed from the PSN stores, and is therefore unavailable… Or is it?!

Go ahead and check out the following video, that Mr.gas recorded for us:

As you can see, it is possible to simply install update files (and DRM-free applications) via the E-mail application in combination with the EML file generator. This should also be possible on firmwares that cannot use the PKG Installer (3.30+) anymore.

Alright.

Now that we have the Vita scene up and running, I feel it’s time we had a proper homebrew competition.

The last time I organized a homebrew competition was in 2011, and it was the PSP Genesis competition. It was a blast, and during that competition, gems were created such as Lamecraft, Localizer, Pro CFW, and even a Kernel exploit.

I’m probably not going to reproduce something of the scale of the Genesis competition. I don’t have that amount of time required for that. But I’d be happy to kickstart the Vita scene by offering a few cash prizes here and there.

Besides the cheesy name, I’m not sure yet about the rules that we’ll have for that competition, or the prizes. But for now, I know that I want some sort of splash screen for it, so let’s start with that.

ReVITAlize

This was the splash screen for the PSP Genesis competition

I started a tiny contest on the /talk forum: submit a splash screen following the rules on the thread. I’ll pick a winner in a few days/weeks (depending on how many submissions we get), and the winner will get a $20 PSN Code. Enjoy, and I hope you like the idea of having a friendly competition going on!

Update: It seems TomTomdu80 and Mr.Gas have ways to solve the issue of installing PSM Dev for Unity on firmwares 3.20 and above (including 3.51). Scroll down for details, and stay tuned for more!

Yesterday, YifanLu announced that the PSM Unity Dev Assistant is also vulnerable to the Rejuvenate hack. The PSM Unity Dev Assistant is a separate app from the PSM Dev assistant. The PSM Dev Assistant is the one people had been advised to download initially for the rejuvenate hack.

Additionally, the PSM Unity app is more promising than the PSM Dev app, because it does not require a usb connection (the connection can happen over wifi), which means it could be compatible with the PS TV. To make things even better, that app apparently does not have any DRM, meaning it could be installed without a PSM Developer license (reminder: the PSM Developer license is *not* the same thing as the publisher’s license).

The problem is, that PSM Unity Dev assistant is gone from the PSN store. I have asked around, and I am not getting a clear answer to the simple question: “can people on firmware 3.51 Download and install the PSM Unity Dev assistant today?”.

psmdev

I opened a thread on the /talk forums to gather answers to this question. you can check it here. For now, my understanding is that it is not possible for people on 3.51 to get this app now. If you have it installed on your PS Vita or PSTV, good for you, you’ll probably be able to enjoy some of the scene’s offerings in the weeks to come. If not, stay tuned while people look for a solution (and you should look for one too! Just because the situation isn’t clear doesn’t mean solutions don’t exist.)

Bottom line is, if you know how to download and install the PSM Unity app today on a 3.51 Vita, we have thousands of users here who would love you to share your steps :)

On a side note, I received a couple complaints from people, blaming me personally for the confusion that was generated around this release, and asking for apologies. I want to emphasize first that I did not drive this release, I am just reporting the news as we get them from the hackers. Secondly, it was discovered only yesterday by YifanLu that the PSM Unity Dev assistant was also vulnerable, and I posted about it within minutes of Yifan’s post. I assume that the discovery was triggered by the fact that Sony removed both apps from their store, implying that they both had a vulnerability. It’s not like hackers or myself knew before yesterday that the exploit was there as well.

We’re trying our best here to be as clear as possible on the steps to take to get access to the hacks. But at the end of the day, we’re getting the same information you’d get from the hackers themselves, their blogs and twitter accounts. If you feel the information we delivered was less clear than what people like Yifanlu have explained, then fire at will.

Update: tomTomDu80 announced on Twitter that him and Mr. Gas have solutions to this problem, and they will publish these solutions sometime soon. Stay tuned!

For what it’s worth, I do not have the PSM Dev for Unity app installed on my PS Vita either. Just sayin’… it sounds like a safe course of action for the future is to download every single free app you can find on the psn store, just in case.

Are you looking for ways to install the PSM Dev for Unity? Did you find a way? Discuss in the comments below!

YifanLu just announced that the Rejuvenate hack is likely to be compatible with the PSM Dev assistant for Unity. That app, which is similar to the PSM Dev Assistant that was required for Rejuvenate, brings some additional features that the hack can leverage.

First of all, the PSM For unity app can be debugged over wifi. This means that through this app, it could be possible to run Rejuvenate without a USB connection. As a result, it also potentially brings PSTV compatibility with the hack.

Secondly, the PSM for unity app apparently isn’t DRMed, and does not require a license. This is probably a big announcement right here: people who did not register for the PSM dev portal now have a chance at getting the hack moving forward. Installing the pkg file will require access to the package installer app (tough given that this app has been made difficult to access quite a while ago) or to a PS3 (this one should be easier?)

This is all of course assuming you are still on firmware 3.51! Firmware 3.52 blocked access to these apps, and will not work with Rejuvenate.

(logo credits: egarrote from elotrolado.net)

(logo credits: egarrote from elotrolado.net)

YifanLu stated that more work is of course required to port Rejuvenate and the exploit (VitaDefiler) to the PSM Unity app. Sadly, he lacks the time to actually work on this, and is calling for help to the scene. Everything is open source, so people with the required skills should be able to do this.

On my end, I have some amount of work to do in order to release PSM+. PSM+ is a system that will allow people who have the PSM App installed, but no publisher license, to run homebrews. PSM+ is not my work, it is a combined work from TomTomdu80, Mr.Gas, and YifanLu. However I am hosting it on this site, and because some of the steps are CPU intensive, I have to tread carefully. Bear with me as I gather the required time to launch this.

PS Vita firmware 3.52 is out, and it patches the Rejuvenate hack, by revoking PSM from the device.

If you are running the Rejuvenate hack, or are hoping to run it, do not update to firmware 3.52. This “stability” update has the only goal of blocking the recently released native hack.
Just like many other stability updates on the PS vita, the sole goal of this update is to slow down the hacking scene, and this will not bring any stability whatsoever. Add it to the pile of updates Sony released only for the sake of the scene 😉

For those of you who do not have a publisher’s license but have the PSM Dev App installed, we’re still figuring out the timing to release PSM+, the tools that will let you run Rejuvenate without a publisher’s license.

It is important at this point that as many people as possible stay on 3.51 or lower. A significant amount of people running the Rejuvenate hack could make a huge difference in how lively the PS vita scene will become in the months to come. I have lots of things to announce to follow up on the hack release, unfortunately the timing is not perfect on my end as I just switched jobs and don’t have the time I want to spend on this. Please bear with me.

3.52-Firmware

Our friend Heleius at hackinformer stated that other, undisclosed hacks, including ePSP hacks, are still working on this firmware, confirming that the Rejuvenate hack was the only target for this update.
