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
    • Vita Homebrew Browser
    • Adrenaline
    • PKGj
    • vita-savemgr
    • Custom Themes Manager
  3. 3.
    Click on "Download the selected apps", VitaDeploy will download the app packages and launch the file manager where you will be able to install the downloaded apps

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!
