So, as some of you might have seen on my twitter, I've been working on an alternative to UVL for about a week now.
Today, with menu support finally working, I'm releasing beta builds for VHL and a version of psp2shell modified to launch homebrew with the start button. There may still be many issues, as the loader is still in beta.
I would also like to take this opportunity to define some minimal standards for homebrew packaging and layout so we can have a single uniform format for menus to use. I'll be creating a separate thread for that discussion soon.
Back to VHL, the source code can be found at:
Vita Homebrew Loader
PSP2SHELL (by coldbird, ported by Yosh) with homebrew loading support
libVHL (Library to configure and control VHL from a homebrew menu or app)
And a full build is available (linked above). Things working:
Menus Things to do:
Automatic object and memory management
Updated the link, this version ought to work, despite the 'Exit' in the corner.
A new build of VHL is available, along with a new build for psp2shell which fixes the black screen on return from homebrew bug. Additionally, all logging to console has been completely disabled in this build, resulting in a massive speed up!
For normal people (logging disabled in order to increase speed), latest complete build with modified PSP2SHELL (linked above). For homebrew developers (logging for homebrew enabled, may be slower depending on the homebrew).
