Vita SDK making steady progress
Not so long ago, Yifan Lu asked the scene to start helping with building a Vita SDK, one of the critical components that is still missing to ensure the future of homebrew on that portable device.
It appears 2 different projects have seen the light of day.
The most recent one, led by famous Japanese hacker 173210, has been receiving (directly or indirectly) contributions from several well known names of the Vita scene: 173210 himself of course, Hykem, Smoke, Josh Axey, tomtomdu80, as well as Mysterydash and frangarcj.
You can already get the SDK at https://github.com/173210/psp2sdk. According to 173210, it is pretty much done already.

The other project, named vita-toolchain, can be found here.
I wish I could personally help these initiatives, but it’s now been a long time since I last had the time to dig seriously into coding. Parenthood and my day job are taking their toll, so I’m glad to see that others are actively contributing to this. Wololo.net is open for any kind of hosting you guys might need for these projects.
People are still waiting for YifanLu’s “big reveal”. Please keep in mind that he did *not* announce any kind of release date. Just because May 31st has come and gone doesn’t mean there was any plan to release at that point. Stay tuned.
