How to set up PS Vita SD2Vita adapter

Recently, a new product SD2Vita was discussed very hotly on each game forums.
It’s a microSD adapter for the PSVita via the game card slot in a nutshell With this adapter, you can use microSD cards on your

PSVita which will save you quite a buck as Vita memory cards are expensive and the 64GB ones are said not to be too reliable.

Requirement:

  • A computer running Windows (XP is also ok)
  • A PS Vita with firmware 3.60
  • A microSD card and care reader
  • WinSCP/Filezilla or some other FTP client
  • Win32 Disk Imager
  • The driver for microSD adapter (SD2Vita) has 2 versions exist
  • Download the zzBlank.img file

Install the driver:
1. f you plan to use your microSD adapter as ux0:, back up your Vita memory card to your computer. You can do this via USB so that it’s quicker. If you want to use your SD2Vita as uma0: (external memory), skip this step
2. Move your ux0:/tai folder to ur0:/tai so that you can use your adapter even if you don’t have the Vita card inserted and it may avoid any path issues while mounting the microSD card
3. Add the sd2vita adapter driver to ur0:/tai/config.txt under the *KERNEL section. The line you’ll be adding will probably be “ur0:tai/gamesd.skprx”

Prepare the microSD card:
1. Put the microSD card into the adapter and connect with computer
2. Open Win32 Disk Imager, and select zzBlank.img. Make sure you’re selecting the microSD in the drive selector and press WRITE
3. Move the microSD card then insert again

5. The set up is finished, copy the backup files to the root directory of microSD card

After all of the steps finished, insert the microSD card to SD2Vita, run HENkaku on your PSVita and now you can enjoy the extra storage!

MaiDumpTool V233.0 released for PS Vita

Yesterday, PSVita MaiDumpTool V233.0 had been released, this tool is compatible with games that aren’t compatible with Vitamin and dumps the .suprx files, which is pretty cool. It is more or less the same as Vitamin 1.1 but there are confirmed reports that it can dump games that Vitamin cannot, since it dumps all the .suprx files correctly.

The below is the features of MaiDumpTool V233.0, but please note, this tool is for educational and research purposes only! Please delete it within 24 hours, and do not use it for commercial use.

  •  Can extract/decrypt games and updates (Both physical and digital)
  • Can extract the updates by themselves (Both physical and digital)
  • Can install the games to your VITA directly, instead of dumping to a VPK.
  • Can decrypt and load games that use the sce_modules
  • Automatically loads all plugins in ux0:/plugins/
  • Saves the original eboot to mai_moe/eboot_origin.bin
  • Does not support grw games (With updates built into the cart)
  • Does not support some of the rare self loading games (Uncharted: Golden Abyss)
  • If the game can not be normal operation of the solution (in two attempts) The eboot.bin replaced mai_moe / eboot_origin.bin
  • This version does not support DLC, this will likely be added in the next version
  • When dumping a game, the user can choose to install it to their VITA directly from the game, or pack it into a compressed VPK
  • PLEASE do not let the screen lock, as this will fail the dumping process.

PSVita Vitamin 1.0 released to decrypt games

HENkaku has been released for a month, after the hard research, hacker TheFlow accounced a new tool: Vitamin 1.0, that lets people dump and decrypt PS Vita games.

Vitamin has many limitations on the games, it can actually decrypt total size of the game, for example, seems to be a factor, and the Warez scene has been on fire to maintain compatibility lists. This official release brings a lot new features and buh fixes, see below details:
Amphetamin plugin
Additional self dumping (higher compatibility)
PARAM.SFO patching to prevent 0x80101144 error
Games are dumped as ‘safe’ homebrews
Auto-suspend blocker
More stable dumper
Better UI with progress bar and percentage

Through Vitamin software, PAVita game can be hacked and packed to VPK format, and run on any PSVita with HENkaku. One thing that’s clear based on the screenshots that people have been sharing is that the leaked version is not a final version of Vitamin. It’s at least lacking the version number and progress bar that was shown in some of Team FreeK’s youtube videos.

HENkaku ——the first Native Homebrew ENabler for PS Vita have released just now

Good news! Today, after the last couple of months hard working, develp molecule bring an easy-to-use homebrew solution , is it HENkaku, the first HEN for the Vita. This tool will let you run homebrews (including emulators) on any PS Vita running firmware 3.60.

What is HENkaku?
HENkaku simply lets you install homebrew as bubbles in LiveArea. It is a native hack that disables the filesystem sandbox. It installs molecularShell, a fork of VitaShell that lets you access the memory card over FTP and install homebrew packages (which we create as VPK files). With vita-toolchain, developers have access to the same system features licensed developers have access to as well as undocumented features that licensed developers cannot use (including overclocking the processors).

HENkaku is the first ever homebrew enabler for PS Vita and PSTV. It is akin to jailbreaking your iPhone or rooting your Android device. Homebrew are games and other software not officially approved. For example, VitaDoom is a port of the classic game DOOM and mGBA lets you play Game Boy Advance ROMs. You can find more examples in the showcase.
Best of all, HENkaku is 100% free. No cost. No ads. No “donations”.

Where to get it?
Visit HENkaku official site from the built-in web browser on your PS Vita and press the “Install” button to install HENkaku. You must do this every time you reboot the console–that is, every time you turn the console off and on again.
Requirements

  • Vita on firmware 3.60
  • Internet connection
  • FTP client on your PC
  • Memory card

It is important that you never update your Vita past 3.60 if you ever wish to use HENkaku now or in the future. If you do update, all your installed homebrew will no longer work and you cannot install any homebrew in the future.

How to install HENkaku?
The first time you install HENkaku, a new bubble named “shell” will show up in LiveArea. This application allows you to install other homebrew bubbles. However, once you reboot the device, molecularShell and any other homebrew bubbles you installed will not be able to be launched until you run the installer again.

  • Make sure your Vita is running firmware 3.60
  • Open the Web Browser application and visit https://henkaku.xyz
  • Press the “Install” button
  • You will get a “Welcome to HENkaku” message. Press “OK”
  • Once the installation is complete, the browser will be closed automatically
  • Press the home/PS button and close the browser manually. Installation should be successful.

NOTE: It will only support firmware 3.60, so feel free to update to it now in preparation. Do not update past 3.60, the current firmware at the time of this writing.
