Xerpi currently working on getting Linux to run on the PSVita – Project still in early stages but progress is being made!


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    Pretty good way to describe NetFront Browser. And NetFront NX. And well, I’m honestly gonna guess ACCESS Co, Ltd. as a whole.

    Thanks for the update.
    On a tangentially related note, some more info about the Vita Web browser (Though probably not news worthy), is the Web version of Youtube no longer works on Vita. At least, not from what I’ve experienced and heard around.

    The amount of xterm-foo required for something like this is astonishing. I wonder if this will be like a persistent live-usb or a full on this psv is now linux and will it work on 3.67+? if so that may lead to a new xploit that would allow a perma-hencore on these firms. and maybe some really interesting homebrew.

    This has a lot of potential. I came from using a Dingoo to the vita, when the Dingoo got Linux it gained incredible power for a device much weaker than the vita. I’m going on record here that Linux on the vita will lead to a vita revolution. What do we call it? Lita, Vitux, Loav (Linux on a vita)

    I think the best android version to run on ps vita is Android Go.

    Wow, would be great to see android running on vita as 2nd os one day. I think Vita would be quite capable of running games like GTA for android.
