finalizing setup

with this guide you will install some core homebrew apps as well as customize your system

Installing core homebrew apps

  1. 1.
    Make sure that your console has a working internet connection
  2. 2.
    Open VitaDeploy, navigate to "App Downloader" and select the following apps:
    • VitaShell
    • VitaDB Downloader
    • Adrenaline
    • PKGj
    • vita-savemgr
    • Custom Themes Manager
  3. 3.
    Click on "Download the selected apps", VitaDeploy will download the app packages and install them to your system

Optional steps

  • Add some internal user storage on Phat (PCH-1XXX) units by going to VitaDeploy->"Miscellaneous"->"Create an internal memory card" (i recommend the 100MB option)
  • Replace the abandoned "near" app with VitaDeploy by clicking on VitaDeploy->"Miscellaneous"->"Replace 'near' with VitaDeploy"
  • Remove the annoying AVLS auto-enable by using VitaDeploy->"Miscellaneous"->"Toggle the AutoAVLS feature"
    • Warning: this will enable Auto-AVLS if it's currently disabled

That's it!
