It would be absolutely useless as, IIRC, debug firmware relies on hardware that isn't present in retail Vita's, it most likely wouldn't load at all unless it was heavily modified somehow to do so.

IDU mode is about as close as we can get right now, which adds in some neato functionality and allows us to run the Package Installer again. Voxel has a thread about IDU mode here if you want to see what it all does: https://gbatemp.net/threads/ps-vita-idu-mode-everything-you-need-to-know.438482/

It's not debug_settings.rco, by any chance is it?
I think Mini Settings uses the RCO files from the actual Settings app's location (which contains debug_settings.rco), and I would've imagined that the suppliers of the Mini Settings VPK, which is already floating around on the net, would've already supplied the appropriate RCOs for the app as well, if it was missing any still.

Wait so the debug settings and the mini settings are tied to each other?
Mini Settings comprises of just PSN settings and Debug Settings. The normal Settings app (in a devkit sense) would contain all of the other settings, including the Debug Settings still.

The option to enable debug is hidden on retail vitas http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=46260&start=30#p407859.


Edit: yes it can be done

I am searching for the .rco but I don't think Google is going to be much help.

    I just recently picked up a n64 from a garage sell, and looking to mod it and add a HDMI port to it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/3548173115...044&customid=4f3038da73b61afddf7e5e90f4153856
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I'd like to find a power strip and HDMI selector built in 1 unit, so I can select which game system I want, and will switch to that hdmi, and power on that plug/power supply only, so don't have all game systems powered all the time, but can't find anything like. May just have to make something myself.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Maybe start a kick starter page and sell them, yea right. Big N would prob C&D me, not anything Big N related, but just because that's what they do nowdays. Then come out with they own in a year or so.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Nice. Which operating system are you installing?
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ, windows 10 and some linux distro like linux mint
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    dualbooth
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Yeah, I'd recommend having another OS just in-case you want to play games.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    At least Linux doesn't contain spyware than what Windows has.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ, cuz of lag?
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, No. Whenever you use the internet on Windows, Microsoft collects personal data and installs bloatware that isn't necessarily needed, such as Edge.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Speaking of which

    @SylverReZ,
    I recall @impeeza mentioned some trick about not having bloatware when installing windows where you set up your country to "world" or smh like that

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Yes, you can debloat the operating system, but in some cases for me it just reinstalls them.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ,
    I also recall my brother downloded a "non bloated" version of windows 11 on his pc

  • impeeza @ impeeza:
    @Xdqwerty yes, when you are installing Windows on the first steps you are asked for your current location, you MUST to select «international» so no bloatware is installed, because the bloatware is location based. if this night I have some time I will setup a VM and take screenshots.
