    Now that 1.80, a new VHBL should be coming out, BUT
    with 1.80 comes an update to CMA, and that is BAD NEWS as the update version of CMA ,(open CMA Can't help)
    prevents us from copying the VHBL files, ad well as homebrews, to the memory card.

    It might be some time till the a way is found to get around that

    I forgot
    Figures they'd update it eventually. Well, hopefully a workaround can be found.

    That's why I kept my PSP Go with 6.20 Pro.

    Bingo,

    I don't see the point of playing the cat and mouse game just for an handfull of homebrew that works perfectly fine on the good old psp (exact same situation for the 3DS, keep a dslite, or buy cheap one).
    When they'll be real psvita homebrew then it will be different, but for now keep your psp.

    Besides, many of the 16 bit emulators aren't very good without kernel access for the media engine.

    Yea with you on this one. Still why would anyone throw away their PSP for a Vita, its better to have both.

    Exactly. The only PSP games I have on my Vita are ones that benefit from the improved hardware such as the 3rd birthday (dual analog sticks!) and I haven't run across any PSP game (not counting unofficial PSX eboots) that doesn't work on my PSP Go and that includes BBS.

    I don't have any PSP games on my Vita cause well most of my PSP games are JRPGs so if I wanted to play it on a bigger screen I just hook it up to my TV or computer and even if they're on the Vita the controls would be the same. Still being a gamer is keeping your old consoles to play with for nostalgia or whatever it just not as fun if you throw them away.

    For some games like the 3rd birthday the right analog stick mapping really helps and some look quite a bit better with the upscaling but you are right, most aren't worth it.

    I agree for games like the 3rd birthday a 2nd analog stick is needed cause playing with just 1 is bloody irritating, I tried and as much as I love the game I can't get used to the controls.

    good thing that Open Cma R3 can still patch the latest PC version of CMA.
    backup or transfer the games,saves,music,& pics without going online.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    How the hell you got above 100 GB free space in your Vita?

    it the PC (that HDD that the files are on or being copy to)

    You mean to tell me that the Vita scans the target hardware via the USB without asking for... anything?

    No, the CMA software (whether original or patched with OpenCMA) is what checks for free space and reports it to the Vita.
