1300°
143w ago - Following up on the PS Vita 1.50 Firmware announcement comes news this weekend from PlayStation Vita hacker SKFU who has confirmed the PS Vita PKG AES Key has changed.

To quote from his blog: I just got my tried to unpack the [Register or Login to view links] for PS VITA and sadly I have to say that the AES key for PKG encryption and decryption changed.

The PKG's I used for my testings were pretty old and the key update was expected. Nevertheless it's a bit disappointing but a new nice challange

The PS3 can decrypt the new packages on firmware 4.00 which contains the new PS VITA PKG AES key for the PS3 <--> PS VITA content exchange feature. This means we can decrypt and get the content of the PS VITA PKG files via a 4.00 PS3. Sadly there's no solution to re-encrypt it again, yet.

Let the games begin! (again...)

To quote: This application is probably not of use for the community but some official PS VITA developers.

I required it just for some tests, but it would be a waste of codelines not to share it, so here it is:

PS VITA Live Area preViewer outputs various information about a game, including it's style it uses on the PS VITA.

To use it, simply choose the root folder of a PS VITA game. Then check the style in the upper right of the program which it is ment to be displayed with and choose the correct tab. All else is self-explaining.

From his site: Since a more or less short break from public posts I am back with a little tool called "PS VITA Firmware xTractor".

For now it only works with firmware 00.945.040, tho surely I will update it sooner or later. Just a short info about the firmware itself, it is not unencrypted like the PS3 ones.

The tool is meant for those who will join the VITA scene as a little sign that you are not alone Crawl out of your holes and come up with your tools and research, guys!

I hope the PS VITA scene will not fck up as the PS3 scene did over the last months cuz of the piracy infected environment. ...

SKFU Progress on PS3 Custom Firmware, More Debug Options

700°
205w ago - Today SKFU has updated his blog (linked above) with a follow-up to his previous work and shared some new information and progress regarding PS3 custom firmware.

He was able to add several more working debug options to JailBroken retail PS3 consoles, such as Title Store preview in the network section.

To quote: "While the USB Loader by JaicraB has some trouble rebooting all correctly it seems for a final CFW we need to overwrite dev_flash instead just loading live from USB mass storage.

Some things you can already do for a nice working CFW:

1. Replace all in "/vsh/module + /sys/external + /sys/internal" with the content of a 3.41 debug dev_flash.

2. In "/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/category_game.xml" add this in the "view id=root" Items section

This will bring the "/app_home/GAME" and "Install PKG" options back.

3. In "/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/category_psn.xml" switch "root" and "tool_root".

This will add Title Store previews in the network section.

4. In "/sys/external" you grab liblv2dbg_for_dex from a debug unit and rename it liblv2dbg_for_cex....
