PS Vita dev Rinnegatamante has released hbRedirect, a homebrew utility for the PS Vita that lets you redirect ux0 usage to other partitions. hbRedirect is an entry for the KyuHEN Vita Homebrew competition, a contest with more than $1000 in cash prizes.

What is hbRedirect for PS Vita

hbRedirect is a user plugin for the PS vita that redirects ux0 usage to other partitions. The use case of this plugin is about allowing to move data files of homebrew game/ports to secondary partitions mounted, most of the time, as uma0 or imc0.

This is useful in particular if your ux0 partition is getting full with data from a lot of homebrew apps and games.

Download and install hbRedirect

You can download the necessary files from KyuHEN’s hbRedirect download page here.

source code can also been found on Rinnegatamante’s github here.

Installation and usage notes from the author:

You will need to do this in order to be able to use this plugin :

install ioPlus by downloading this file, placing it in your `tai` folder (generally in ur0 or ux0) and adding the plugin path under *KERNEL in your config.txt file.

  • Download this plugin and place it as well in your `tai` folder.
  • In your `config.txt` file, add a line for this plugin under `*ALL` section.
  • Create the folder `ux0:data/hbRedirect` and place inside it a file with the title ID of the homebrew you want to use this plugin on with txt extension. (eg. `ux0:data/hbRedirect/GTAVCECTY.txt`)
  • Write inside this file the partition you want to use for that specific homebrew (eg. `uma0`)

Here you can find a sample of how your config file should look like:
