I think it would be interesting to see what that could lead to (if it leads to anything at all)
Honestly I think its a waste of time and pointless. I got interested and started looking into it for personal means and knowledge..... but there are shortcomings if its done at all by anyone.
A) It enables piracy and nothing more. No homebrew or anything (This is just my speculation based on the security and how the game does an "install" every-time).
B) Itll open up means for people to start selling flash carts thatll cost close to $100 and I find that just as disgusting as KEYS and dongles. Piracy is pointless, and wrong. Plus its not worth the hassle by Sony.
C) The vita game cartridges, I wouldnt be surprised if the content was encrypted. We'd also need a way to dump the games. Then we have the issues of finding a medium to hold the ROMs
My understanding of the DS's security is now solid. :lol:

All True But if you really want to get to bottom line about piracy it's really unavoidable it will happen whether its now or later theres not much you can do to stop it if someone is gonna pirate they are gonna pirate just like if someone is gonna to be a jerk to someone else no matter what unless you can persuade them not to they are gonna be a jerk :P anyhow as far as piracy for the vita goes its just a matter of time until it happens real question is how long...

on a unrelated note I Also would like to make this very clear I Don't Condone Piracy However if its a game that's only produced for a specific country or region then that's a little different
