59w 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 made a quick fix here to solve the ingame xmb problem, its not brilliant this removes the install package file options from the xmb. rogero bascially patched the chinese firmware so it can be installed on any console they must be good at hacking but useless at creating custom firmwares.
anyway to use this go into multiman enable dev_blind access you need to ftp into your console and make a backup of the original vsh folder then replace the files with the one in the download and reboot the console.
if you need to install a package you will have to replace the original files for now. i'm sure it will be fixed properly soon.
WARNING: only attempt this if you have a e3 flasher or progskeet and/or if you are confident with this, if you mess up dev_flash you will need to downgrade to 3.55 to reinstall this firmware: http://www.putlocker.com/file/004D362C6D2EBFF3
