30w ago - Below is a video tutorial from GameBlamer on YouTube demonstrating how to dump PS Vita games via the recently released PS3 CFW 4.21.
It has not been confirmed yet and I am not the uploader, I just found it randomly so consider it a proof-of-concept if it ends up working or an 'entertainment purposes only' video if not.
The video is partly in English and part in German, and although it can be followed if anyone wishes to translate the German parts to English or make a new video let us know and we will update this article with it... those interested can check it out below!
Finally, from wololo (via wololo.net/2012/10/25/backing-up-vita-games-using-the-new-4-21-cfw-by-rogero/) on the above video to quote:
Backing up Vita games using the new 4.21 CFW by Rogero
Have you ever worried about Sony's financial situation, and what would happen to your hard earned Cash if they were to close? I certainly have.
For a long while now Sony have not been in the best financial state and could possibly face bankruptcy in the future. If this were to happen, then their servers would go down, meaning that there would be no more PSN/SEN, subsequently all of your purchased media would just vanish into thin air.
However, this is no longer an issue! (At least for those who own a Playstation 3). With the release of the LV0 keys, and CFW on 4.21, if you were lucky and updating didn't brick your console, then this is for you. For those of you who do not have 4.21 at present, fear not! There are apparently multiple people working on getting CFW on 4.25 and even 4.30 (and considering they have the LV0 keys, that probably won't take too long).
Be advised however. I have not tested this since I am still on 3.55, but the person who posted this is rather reliable from my own personal experience.
If any of you are able to test this then please let us know! If not, sit tight - it won't be long!
Please be advised that this video is mostly in German, but it's easy enough to follow.

were you spoofed when you installed this? you shouldn't have installed this considering you didn't/couldn't go to recovery mode. these aren't legos, you have to follow directions and even then, it's not always gonna work and if you mess up, you can't exactly start over easily.
i can't exactly talk cause i've bricked a console before, but i learned from it.
cosoledev, is scetools useable on firmwares higher than 3.6? i checked the keys button and it only went up to 3.6, not 4.21/4.25. i haven't tested the game yet just out of laziness. i haven't turned on my console today. i don't exactly get what lv0, lv1, etc. is exactly, but i know that's where keys are possibly. so, thanks for any help provided.
Hello everyone, I just tried the upgrade and got bricked. My PS3 now turn on but give no signal. I had a CFW 3.55 ( not sure which one) so I tried to install this through XMB. I know it was stupid but I wasn't able to access the recovery mode for some reason.
i'm wondering if this is causing bricks cause people aren't reading it.
there's only one dude that i can look up to that has gotten a brick. for everyone else, they could have a spoofer or something installed. judging by the questions, people aren't reading past the title...
oh, and thanks for the tools. i should be able to patch the game i've been waiting to play a while.
