How to use FTPVita to transfer files to your Vita

FTPVita is one of the first native Hombrews made by xerpi and comes in very handy for installing files such as roms for the latest Emulators.

Here’s a quick tutorial for installing roms to use with Realboy Vita for example.

Lets get to it!

1) At first you will need to download the Hombrew itself of course.. Download FTPVita.elf

2) Next up you will need to have Rejuvenate installed and working.

3)  Like with the hello_world.elf sample you will need to drag and drop the FTPVita.elf onto the run_homebrew.bat

4) You will see the CMD doing its magic..

..and if everything worked like it should, you will see the Hombrew popping up on your Vita:

5) Now you need any FTP program like FileZilla for example and enter the IP and port to connect

filezillaftp

 

6) And there we go!  The dev assistant’s file sytem (cache0:/)!

ftpdir

Open up VitaDefilerClient and your files should go to Documents

ftpdir2

You can even create subfolders in there, like “GameBoy Roms” or  whatever you like!

(Savegames of RealBoy will be stored in cache0:/VitaDefilerClient/Documents/realboy/saves)

  1. That was so helpful, thanks too much I had to download the Filezilla

  2. While I do this, My PSM Dev app displays an error “C2-12828-1” Please Advise.

  3. Are the home brews permanently installed after doing this or will we have to fire up a computer and do these steps every time? I don’t have access to my PS Vita until tomorrow night so I can’t test these.
