    Why does this get it’s own page?

    • wololo says:

      Compared to other emulators you mean? Mostly because I happened to have the time to write an article when it got released. There no “favorite” among the recent stream of Rejuvenate releases, it’s just that in general I don’t have the time to write an article in a timely manner, but today I did.

      If you think you can help with coverage of the many rejuvenate releases and become a guest blogger here to help with that, please drop me a PM on /talk. Thanks!

    Please port CSPSP or make CSPSV, this game was just brutal, of course if you have access to the wi-fi connectivity stuff of vita.

    • UnLuck3R says:

      CSPSP is written by JGE++
      Need someone port this engine on psp2sdk
      Im the CSPSP+ dev (fan)
      after JGE++ portted ill find someone to port it (maybe me)

    this file is an elf file while his first version of nes was a velf file..what’s the difference between them?

  6. Stanislav says:

    Exawhy,why?After all, no 1 is at least pirate PSN Vita game never launched using this hack:(:(:(!

  7. OTFree says:

    Thanks for all of your work, SMOKE! One minor issue; NES4Vita crashes when I try to open my ROM folder…I’ve tested it and it’s consistent. Does anyone know why this would happen? Could it be that there are too many ROMS in that location? (there are roughly 50+ as of current)

  8. Jacob says:

    Wait, how does it have full Vita support? Was the VITA hacked to play homebrew?!?!?

    • ishygdaft says:

      Dude all I can say is… slowpoke.

    • rclr says:

      You’ve been living under a rock .

    • neoman4426 says:

      Yeah, there is a flaw in the code of the PSM dev assistants that allows escaping the PSM sandbox. Look up Rejuvenate, you’ll have to be on 3.51 or below, if you’ve got the normal PSM Dev Assist installed you could use it now, if you didn’t you’ll need to wait a bit for the release of the port of the exploit to the Unity version is released, Unity version has the same vulnerabilities and is DRM free so can be installed with the email writing trick or the native package installer if you’re on a firmware that has access to that.

    Really good stuff. Played through fire emblem gaiden with this emulator’s previous version. Flawless.

    Also, the SNES emulator is very close to running full speed and has excellent compatibility.

    The 3ds has better emulators right now. But, the vita has a huge advantage in that you can put it into sleep mode without crashing :P.

    Great work, Smoke and all other devs!

  10. sureofeverything says:

    A major update to this emulator would be the option to map the zapper lightgun to the touchscreen and/or the touch back panel. only then the dev can say the emulator uses the full ps vita potental.

  11. malaam says:

    NesterJ is already a great NES Emulator for PSVita.

  12. Firion says:

    Anyone tried this yet? Does everything run pretty well?

  13. Scrub says:

    Is there a fullscreen Option? Looks so small on the Screenshots….

  14. I'mConfused says:

    So, Psm Dev Assistant won’t let me do anything. It tells me to update the application, but there is no update button on the LiveArea screen. Even though I’ve done the steps correctly, PsmDevAssistant also tells me that my Developer’s license cant be confirmed.

  15. Gio says:

    How do I add the roms? I’m not sure exactly where to put them. I can clearly find the vitadefiler directory on the vita but I can’t find it on my computer. Well.. I was assuming it was the same place where my rejuvenate program was, but the files don’t show up on the vita.

  16. lollypop says:

    dear wololo,
    do the same for me as u did with psvitaupdateblocker.
    that is creating a standalone version with all dependecies and working.
    for all firmwarez it correlates.
    but this time py2win the webkit into a standalone exe for eatch firm.
    with all dependecies as i have allways failed and dont really know any cmd’s for it.
    could something like pspassignhost or hostcontrol be done on vita via webkit ?
    could rejuvenate do a pchdd swap memcard online ?
    could online saves be downloaded from a pc or injected in to the cloud ?
    ifso are vita gamesave exploit ever possible ?
    how could i modify the callofduty card install to allow it to run on my psvitatv ?
    what are the latest vita hacks about except rejuvenate and emu’s ?
    could i rebuild a vitamemcard on my pc and host it for my vita …

    can i do pspassignhost or hostcontrol on my pc over the internet or only locally ?
    ifso i got a great collection on my pc. but ppsspp sucks as it dont play psppsx.
    and its mostly psppsx.
    i really would like a solution for pc hdd memcard for psp vita tnv tho 😉
    and more webkit maddness in wine.

    ps. does win10 look like win2012 to u to ?

  17. Nnuma says:

    Nice 😀 What about a Quake engine emulator ? ^^

  18. Arc Futahito says:

    I don’t see any need in yet another NES emulator when first one works perfectly, but for coding practice it’s cool, I guess. Now, what I really want to see is some DS emulation. It was terrible on PSP and Vita has a touchscreen, which allows for a great experience of DS games.
    P.S. Maybe even 3DS emulator sometime in the future.

    • starglad says:

      I don’t get it, what first NES emulator is that?are you talking about NES emulator using psp in vita?not every1 have a exploited game in vita..this release can help them..the world doesn’t revolve around you

  19. vitekmc says:

    I get error c2 12828 1 then psm exits. PSM+ license is ok and hello world no problems.

  20. darkado says:

    I know this might be unrelated but I keep seeing conflicting info and nothing seems to be conclusive, how much of vita’s power does rejuvenate really has access too?

  21. FSrogi says:

    It would be nice to play the game on fullscreen, just like NesterJ.

  22. troll says:

    will this work with the PSM dev assistant for Unity app? I dont have the other one….

  23. petitevieille says:

    I’d LOVE a Model 2 emulator. Then I could enjoy Sega Rally anywhere (I love it when he calls me baby).
