VitaShell updated: PSTV now supports game mounting via USB device

About a month ago The Flow announced that he was able to find a way to use the PSTV USB port to mount games from with VitaShell. As most of us, PSTV owner knows the USB port on the PSTV is kind of useless and is only good for charging or updating the PSTV. Well, today that is all about to change for PSTV owners with FW3.60 as The Flow released his update to VitaShell that includes the ability to use the USB port like it should have been from the get go.VitaShell

  1. I got this error ux0:data/psp2core-1489793657-0x000028381-eboot.bin.psp2dmp

  2. I wonder if this will allow a PSVita to stream a game from a PSTV in the future. If we can’t pass the GB limit on the Vita, then streaming is the next best thing.
