README.md

Vitacompanion

Vitacompanion is a user module which makes developing homebrews for the PS Vita device easier. It does two things:

  • Open a FTP server on port 1337
  • Listen to commands on port 1338

Build

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make

Install

Run VitaShell on your PS Vita, press SELECT to activate the FTP server and copy vitacompanion.suprx to ur0:/tai. Finally, add the following line to ur0:/tai/config.txt:

*main
ur0:tai/vitacompanion.suprx

Usage

FTP server

You can upload stuff to your vita by running:

curl --ftp-method nocwd -T somefile.zip ftp://IP_TO_VITA:1337/ux0:/somedir/

Or you can use your regular FTP client.

Command server

Send a command by opening a TCP connection to the port 1338 of your Vita.

For example, you can reboot your vita by running:

echo reboot | nc IP_TO_PSVITA 1338

Note that you need to append a newline character to the command that you send. echo already adds one, which is why it works here.

Available commands

Command Arguments Explanation
destroy none kill all running applications
launch <TITLEID> launch an application by id e.g. launch VHBB00001 to launch the Vita Homebrew Browser
reboot none reboot the console
screen on or off turn screen on or off

Note: Commands are defined in src/cmd_definitions.c, you can add new commands there.

Acknowledgements

Thanks to xerpi for his vita-ftploader plugin, I stole a lot of his code (with his permission). Thanks to cpasjuste for PSP2SHELL, it inspired me to create this tool.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
