This tutorial will show you how to safely and permanently jailbreak/mod your device so that you can run RetroArch or other emulators, plus load backups of your PS Vita, PSP, and PS1 games.
This guide is intended for the PS Vita 1000 and PS Vita 2000 models. The PS TV setup is mostly the same, but there are some slight differences in the process; because I’ve never used a PS TV, I would recommend looking elsewhere for the jailbreak instructions. This tutorial is written for Windows users, but Mac users can also follow this guide. When the process deviates for Mac users, I have provided relevant instructions and adjustments.
Note that each of these tutorials are written in a specific order. For example, you will need VitaShell installed to run certain tools, and so those instructions are found above the other tutorials. Long story short: if you just jump into a specific section and it references things you don’t understand (like VitaShell, AutoPlugin, etc.), then scroll up a bit to find those particular instructions.

If you a running the stock firmware that comes with the RG351P, or the updated 3.7 version that I recommend in my Firmware Guide, you’re in luck — Anbernic just released an update patch to this firmware that provides some serious improvement to PlayStation Portable (PSP) performance. It’s still far from perfect, but it definitely makes more games playable.
One nice thing about this update is that it doesn’t require you to reinstall any new firmware. In fact, all you have to do is replace a couple files on your SD card and you’re all set. No need for WiFi FTP, either!

After over a month of waiting for it to arrive, my pre-ordered Retroid Pocket 2 finally came in the mail. It will take me some time to familiarize myself with its user interface and potential, but I wanted to make a quick post and video to share my initial thoughts. Other than watching a few videos to determine whether I wanted to buy the device, I mostly stayed away from videos and discussion about tweaking the experience. I wanted to have a fresh impression when first opening the box.
