ARK is a PSP Emulator Custom Firmware for your Vita. It supports most PSP Homebrews, plugins, and backups, as well as PS1 games

Instructions :
> Go into the ARK folder
> Choose your region and copy the savedata to your '\PS Vita\PSAVEDATA\XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\' folder
> Transfer it to your PSVita using CMA

Features:
> PSX game support (soundless so far, our sound plugin is too glitchy for public use at the moment)
> ISO/CSO game support
> NoDRM Engine for decrypted dlc playback
> MS-SpeedBoost (most noticable on games like soul calibur)
> Stargate Game Patches (fixes several anti-cfw games)
> Customizable Main Menu
> Plugin support
> Recovery support
> ISO-cache support (speed up ISO gaming)

... and much more!

About yMenu:
Default menu, created by Yosh - for more details see http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=12131
Special thanks to ind3x-gosu for his custom theme!

About PROShell Recovery:
While triggerring the exploit press R to enter the PROShell minimalistic launcher menu!
This menu can be used to sort out or launch corrupted icon EBOOTs.

About Plugins:
To load plugins, place a plugins.txt file in your savedata folder containing lines as:
mode,path,1

- Mode can be either umdemu (for isos), game (for homebrews), or pops (for psx)
- Path is the absolute plugin's path
- And then 1 for enabled, or 0 for disabled

Warning! Never put any additionnal spaces or anything between commas

For instance :
umdemu,ms0:/PSP/SAVEDATA/NPEH00020DATA00/plugin.prx,1
pops,ms0:/PSP/SAVEDATA/NPEH00020DATA00/plugin2.prx,0
game,ms0:/PSP/SAVEDATA/NPEH00020DATA00/plugin3.prx,1
