15w ago - Following up on the recent PS3 RetroArch v0.9.8 release, today PlayStation 3 developer CaptainCPS-X has made available a FB Alpha RL (Retro Loader) v1.00 for PS3 CFW 3.40 / 4.XX users with details below.
To quote: Hiyas everyone, today I come with something that I've been working for the last few days, please read the documentation before using it, I know that some people don't usually like to read, but please take a minute to read and see what FB Alpha RL offers.
Note: I verified the problems with emulation of CPS-1, and it seems it is only happening on libretro port, not on the Windows official release of FB Alpha. I tried to see if I could find the issue, but I couldn't identify it.
As a dev from the official FB Alpha Team, FB Alpha RL was made with a objective in mind, to keep the...
33w ago - Previously we reported on running PSP ISOs (using a PSP ISO Loader) on the PlayStation Vita console, and today a new video has surfaced from Sam Jordam of the PS Vita PSP (PSP Mini Urbanix) Kernel Exploit (ISO Loader) demo alongside the leaked files below.
From the included ReadMe file: Vita FTP - Developed by Coldbird - Team PRO
This is a FTP Client for the PS Vita. Launch this FTP Homebrew via a HBL (e.g. HBL r160 via Monster Hunter) and then connect with your PC Browser to the given IP, it may be this one ftp://192.168.1.5, you should be able to see the memory stick directories of your PS Vita memory card, but just the stuff inside of the PSP Emulator.
Have fun transferring files without the CMA.
1. VHBL. You must have the Vita Half-Byte Loader for one of the firmware 1.67-1.80. This works on 1.80 MHFU VHBL.
35w ago - Below is a demo video from wololo (via The Z from German site PSPKing.de) of a developer running PSP ISOs using a PSP ISO Loader on the PlayStation Vita handheld console.
To quote: "You might remember the hacker whom I nicknamed “Tony”, who was able to run PS1 games and psp isos with a CFW on a PS Vita. Or you might remember Davee’s HEN running on a PS Vita back in march. You might also remember that I mentioned that several groups are now in possession of a PSP kernel exploit on the Vita.
Well it seems today that a beta tester for one of these groups was not completely careful, and leaked a video showing him running psp isos on a Vita (video below).
The video shows the tester (who is possibly Chinese) running isos for Metal Gear Solid : Peace Walker and Shining Blade through a (PSP) kernel exploit.
I have been told that the initial video has since then been removed which is why I’m thinking of a beta-tester mistake, but that was probably too late and the video got copied to other networks such as youtube.
What I can tell you right now is that this video is legit, and that...
36w ago - Today PlayStation Vita hacker freddy_156 announced that UVLoader, a usermode PS Vita loader, is now under development and the project is currently seeking the assistance of the community.
To quote from wololo's blog: Sure, running PSP homebrews on Vita is fun, and VHBL is a very nice piece of work, but it's about time we move on, isn't it?
Developer yifanlu started a new project called Usermode Vita Loader (UVLoader), it will be a homebrew loader for the PSV, basically. Not PSP homebrews, but native PSV code, isn't it awesome?
This project is based on a PSV exploit he found (there are no details about this for now, for obvious reasons), but it's still in its early stages. Just a few lines of code have been written so far (you can find the code on his github (github.com/yifanlu/UVLoader)), so, back to the title, developers are needed.
If you're a developer and you want to help, fork the project on github or get in touch with yifanlu on /talk or on IRC (#vitadev on EFnet).
If you're not a developer, there's nothing for you... yet. But it's still an awesome news, isn't it? And please, avoid asking useless questions: there's no release date yet and it doesn't work for now, just be patient for now and let the developers do their job.
