Vita hacking,Rejuvenate installing&troubleshooting&more.....

Post by Jazoolee ahamed » Wed Aug 19, 2015 2:29 pm

Can vita be hacked?
The vita is only being exploited. It can be hacked but it’s not that easy. The vita has the power of emulating psp,ps1,gamesboy,nes,snes,neogeo,segamastersytem,atari and many other more. But there are only emulators for the followings i mentioned. But if we really hack the vita (I mean like psp) from my knowledge we can also emulate more systems i.e. ps2.

How psp iso played?

Developers find an exploitable game for each firmware at a time and use its code to install a hack called vhbl/hbl(vita half byte loader) you can understand what it means by its name. Then we put the psp isos,ps1 games via it. I.e. for 3.51-Toukiden kiwami
3.52-puzzle scape

More details//

What is psmdev?
Psmdev means PlayStation developmemt.Sony gave any developer who signed up as a developer an application called psmdev,psmdevforunity which can be installed in vita via store and we can create games via its editor in pc but Sony stopped giving psmdevforunity long ago and psmdev recently(4/5 months ago) and closed its license for psmdev app.Because when the psmdev app announced a hacker called yifanlu found an exploitable code via psmdev app so Sony closed it.Yifan told that vita can be more effectively exploitable via psmdev than vhbl.

More details-

What is rejuvenate?
Rejuvenate/uvloader is called as a native hack for vita but developers claim it didn’t hacked the vita full. Rejuvenate is more powerful because Sony gave developers that kind of space accidently.Yifanlu,wololo and hackinformer announced that there will be a hack called uvloader(rejuvenate) and register for it’s license but lots of people missed to get the license. We need the license because the rejuvenate only can be installed via psmdev app.To install it people needs a license.

More details- ... or-psvita/(OFFICIAL)

Link2- ... ejuvenate/

What is psm+?

Psm+ is an alternative license for the app.But it should be updated every day with the eml trick. It can be used in both psmdev and psmdevforunity.

Psmdev and psmdevunity??

First yifan announced that rejuvenate is only compatible with psmdev but after Mr. Gas found a way to install psmdevunity without going to store he announced that it will be ported to psmdevunity.

More detail-I described how to install in the down section

Other PS vita tricks:-
Pkg installer-firmware under3.20 has a hidden official app called pkginstaller.Pkg is the vita's app format like(exe,gbc,nes,iso) if we can get the pkg file we can be install it.But the pkg should be drm(some kind of legal license) free most of the demos are drm free. The pkgnstaller can be opened via an email send by skfu an email like the vita live area but Sony patched it in firm wares up to 3.20.
More details- ... GINST.html ... l-ps-vita/

Eml trick
-after that developers Mr.Gas and Major_Tom found a way write a small code or give a pathway to vita's memory card via a trick called eml trick. First we decrypt a drm free pkg(it’s not public yet) and make an eml file contains the path code for vita's memory card in a picture format. We use it to install pkg files in firmwares up to 3.20

Method of installing a pkg-eml trick:-

1.Download and copy the decrypted pkg which is in a psp savedata format to vita via ocma/qcma
2.Rebuild database to clear registry files of vita do this by power offing your vita and hold powerbutton+R+psbutton to open the safe menu.
3.Then use a game’s or apps update by not open the app and tap the update button and go to notification panel and pause it but don’t cancel it.
4.Send the eml files to the email configured in your vita.Use thunderbird an application which can send .Eml files.
5.Go to your email open the email there will be two attachments shown as a picture click in the first it will tell cannot open image don’t press ok because it will close just press psbuttoon and close the email app then do it again now restart your vita open the notification panel and error will say cannot install application don’t afraid just click it it will install with a message hi from Mr. Gas.
6.That’s it.

How to install psmdevunity-

For those who didn’t have psmdev you can install it via eml-pkg trick.


Installing psm+-
Like i earlier said it is important to have a license to install application via psmdev/psmdevunity because of Sony closed psmlicense someone found a way for a temporary license. It is also an eml trick.First
You have to connect your vita to your pc via the psmdev or psmdevunity with publisher utility in your computer and find your device number and copy it.Now go to wololo's psmplus or hackinformers psm plus and enter your email configured in our vita and your device number. Press submit.A zip file will be asked to download(1/2kb) save it and extract it.Now close psmdev app and open email in vita do the eml thing.(for wololo's psmplus you have search psm in the email for hackinformer it will show up)then open your publishing utility in pc and import kdev key by clicking import publisher license in the top left. It will ask do you want to check it valid or not press no.Now import device seed and then the keyring.Now press next tutorial and do the same. If you done it correctly you will be told when you open the app that install application using psmeditor.
