Welcome to the (semi)official RetroArch/Libretro cores thread for PS Vita

Small disclaimer: Make sure you are on Firmware 3.60 with the latest HENkaku exploit! It is recommended to ensure you are on the latest revision of HENkaku by navigating to henkaku.me via the Vita's Web Browser.

For detailed explanations on RetroArch itself, please consult the Libretro wiki at http://wiki.libretro.com/index.php?title=Main_Page for non-Vita specific questions.

If any bugs are present in any of the Libretro cores or exist within the RetroArch UI itself on the PS Vita. and are not acknowledged in the main post, please report them here.

Sad part is, that's not far from the truth. I screwed up so bad here. >~< I wasn't in a rush but I instead misclicked on the wrong forum subsection and now I'm running about trying to fix mistakes that were made.
