Sony's sceKermit Driver Surfaces via PSP Emulator on PS Vita

1000°
139w ago - Following up on his previous PS Vita developments, today PlayStation Vita hacker Davee reports that he has discovered Sony's sceKermit driver which is a communication interface for the included PSP emulator.

To quote from his blog (linked above): "Turns out he's not just a green frog! So, I've been throwing this word around recently and it's probably about time I explain. Kermit, either a protocol or perhaps a funny name (see KIRK/SPOCK) is a communication interface for the PSP emu. Specifically it allows the PSP to talk to the host.

Now, I can tell there aren't as many developers here, so I'll try to simplify for the curious minds but this stuff is pretty complicated. I'll only explain the API in detail as the lower level still need a little bit of clearing up, but here goes.

Ok, Kermit is here so that the emu can communicate to the host to share resources and other vitality. Perhaps the primary reason is that of hardware; the PSP emu is excluded from many hardware devices. So kermit sets in and allows the system to talk to the vita in order to use the hardware. Blabbering aside, this is the hardware that kermit seems to be responsible for:

Video: PS Vita PSP HEN Demo, Kernel Access Through Exploit

1000°
140w ago - Following up on the PSP SaveGame Exploit on PS Vita from a few days ago, today PlayStation Vita hacker wololo reports that [Register or Login to view links] has obtained PSP Kernel access on PS Vita through another exploit with a PS Vita PSP HEN demo video and details below!

To quote: Famous PSP dev Davee just posted a YouTube video showing him running PSP homebrews on a Vita. I initially thought “well, not a big surprise, he’s running his own port of VHBL to some random exploited game”, but it turns out this is much more interesting than that, as he managed to get a PSP Kernel exploit running on the PSP Emulator.

Davee had hinted a few days ago on twitter that he had PSP User mode access, but it’s a surprise to see Kernel mode today. What this means to the end user is full homebrew compatibility (unlike VHBL which is hit and miss), and potentially down the road, PSP iso loaders (the video actually shows a psp iso running). Check his video below:





The video shows a minimalist interface called “PRX Loader” which seems to be used to run the homebrews. No word...

To quote: One day I was going to decrypt and extract the 1.00 Ridge Racer PKG. I went to download SKFU PKG xTractor and found out it was upload through MegaUpload. I look on the Internet to see if I could find any other sources where this could be uploaded to and was not successful at finding it.

So I made this, it was for personal use, but... Why waste time when I could release this for other people that don't have his tool and want to do the same thing? So here it is.

This little tool can decrypt and extract PsVita beta/retail pkg under 1.00. it uses the PSP AES key used to decrypt and extract PSP retail PKG
