Native vita exploit tools keep surfacing in our top10 since their inception a few months ago, and I’m sure we’ll see more Native stuff in the weeks to come.
10. 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.
This is probably the best screenshot plugin out there for your PSP.
PRXShot is a screenshot plugin that doesn’t need to pause the game to take the capture (useful to avoid lag disconnects on online/adhoc gaming) and classifies the images per game using their name and icons
Vitasploit by Hykem is his version of an exploitation framework based on the Vita webkit exploit. It regroups webkooz, akai, memtools_vita and JSoS-Module-Dump in a single repository.
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
6. PowerMenu [PSVITA – PSP]
Issues with your on/off button? This app for your PSP or Vita allows you to put the PSP in sleep mode in a software way. Because why not?
ARK is a PSP Emulator Custom Firmware for your Vita. It supports most PSP Homebrews, plugins, and backups, as well as PS1 games
4. TNV Bubble ISO Loader Creator
This tool lets you easily create your homebrew/ISO bubbles for the vita
It can install and delete emulators, homebrew & PS1 games into your PSP/GAME folder and you can place an ISO or CSO in any save folder and send it over to your PS Vita or PSTV and it will show up in your game list, no need to install.
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 for now just a sandbox that allows you to build a 3D world to your liking. But Drakon has been restlessly updating this entry regularly for the past months, and each update is simply impressive.
Still need to be convinced? 10 days after the first release, there痴 already a massive community around this homebrew, and the release thread in our forums is already 23 pages long as I type this. This will quickly become a must-have in your homebrew library.
1. PSP Filer
The PSP/Vita’s most popular File Manager.
New Release of the Month: PeXploit
The PS3 scene has been moving fast lately, with the recent work that allowed PSP isos to be run on any OFW PS3. PeXploit is a part of the toolchain recommended to achieve that, and although maybe not the most impressive part of the pipeline, it’s always nice to have a GUI.
