PSVita: VitaShell v1.62 now Available, fixes the infamous “Fast Scrolling” Bug

Hello one and all, we just have a quick update for VitaShell today! Developer TheFlow updated his VitaShell with a simple yet very welcome Bug Fix which has been really annoying for me as well as for some other people. This Bug happens if you have Headphones plugged into your Vita and then scrolls far too fast. If this happens it becomes really hard to navigate through folders, let alone try to copy or replace stuff. I have no idea as to why this happens when the Headphones are plugged in but until now I had to always unplug my Headphones if I wanted to do something other then use USB Mass Storage in Vitashell. Thanks to TheFlow for fixing this little but still quite annoying bug ?

For those of you just starting in the Vita scene, you definitely need to know what VitaShell is.  Here’s the explanation from TheFloW himself. ‘VitaShell is an alternative replacement of the PS Vita’s LiveArea. It offers you a file manager, package installer, built-in FTP and much more. This homebrew was an entry of the Revitalize PS Vita homebrew competition and won the first prize. HENkaku’s molecularShell is also based on VitaShell.’

The app has 19 different languages and boasts a wide array of customizable options.  Just look at this list!
