Video: How to Dump PS Vita Games via PS3 CFW 4.21 Tutorial

Sponsored Links
113w 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.

I think people need to understand there is no change at the moment with regards to who can use this, if you are on 3.55 then make sure you have run toggle_qa to rehash your SYSCON just to make sure before using this (even if you didn't downgrade). I was on Rogero 3.7 and it worked a treat after using toggle_qa as I had originally downgraded (I always do this after downgrading which I have done on mine several times).

If you are on 3.6+ and have never been able to run 3.55 because your Playstation is to new, this has not changed overnight and at present you are stuck (model numbers above 2500 and certain 2500 versions).

If you are on 3.6+ but your PS3 has been on a lower firmware in the past then you will need a flasher (E3, Progskeet) and a downgrade dongle. You then need to downgrade, run toggle_qa, go back to 3.55 OFW and then upgrade to 4.21. Ensure you have quadruple checked your flash dumps BEFORE you doing anything, even use the forums/IRC to get one of the devs to check it if you are unsure.

That is it! hope it helps as I keep seeing people asking "can i use this" type questions, PS3 wiki has a list of PS3 model numbers that can be downgraded so have a quick look there.

Hopefully one day the guys with PS3 versions that can not be downgraded will get there wish and get CFW but it is not there yet!

Hope it helps

I would like to know if there would be a Jailbreak for those of us who are one OFW 4.1 Ever? Bcos to my understanding about this CFW, You need to be on 3.55 to be able to use this
