Better Amphetamine Plugin v3.2, GPU XBAR added
The good thing about knowing where to look for the news is that you can easily keep the people informed with (sometimes) minimal work. The bad thing about it is that now, there is what can easily be described as an avalanche of releases, updates and drama (which here at wololo.net, we try to keep as far away from the blog as possible) that it can be hard to keep up, sometimes. For the most part however, as someone who enjoys doing this, it becomes slightly easier. This time I am here to report on another update to BeatPlay‘s Amphetamine fork.
What is Better Amphetamine Plugin?
Better Amphetamine Plugin is the work of wololo forums user BeatPlay and is a fork of the reworked Amphetamine plugin by Rinnegatamante which itself was a fork of TheFloW’s original plugin. What the original plugin was meant to do was allow you to overclock the CPU of your Vita, but now with Henkaku R6 you can also slightly overclock your GPU to allow for better performance in games. Remember this will only work on games by Vitamin or MaiDumpTool

- How to use the new file:
For advanced setting, create a file named

\nfor linebreak). The file content must be:freq_accurate=0 show_advanced=0
