    Well-known PSP homebrew developer Davee has uncovered a set of API-level functions, collectively known as sceKermit, that Sony uses to communicate with PS Vita hardware through the built-in PSP emulator.

    Let's hope they don't pull PSP emulation all together... Great work though Davee

    They did it before (OtherOS, which was an advertised feature), and they'll do it again - esp. as the PSP emulator isn't used to advertise the PS Vita.
    IIRC they even cover the removal of features in the TOS these days, but I'm not sure about that.

    Apart from that, yes, great work from Davee's side, I only wish it was more.... "accessible" for others, as I'd really like to tinker around there too....
