PS Vitamin 2.0 released and compare with MaiDumpTool

After some hours since the game dumping tool MaiDumpTool released, developer TheFlow release Vitamin 2.0 for PS Vita game dump tool. According to his changelog, Vitamin 2.0 brings the following changes.

  • Increased compatibility dramatically.
  • Added support for additional content (DLC) at ‘ux0:addcont_plain’
  • Added possibility to choose compression level
  • Added trial -> full patch (You can for example download Minecraft demo, dump it, and run it as full game)

Vitamin 2.0 is very similar to MaiDumpTool, but MaiDumpTool is superior in some aspects. Vitamin was not able to handle relocs, having to dump the game in a static self, limiting compatibility. MaiDumpTool handles relocation, which is what gives it better compatibility.

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.
