    This is the most pathetic thing I've seen all day. Operating systems report storage capacities differently, yes, but in any context where one wants to be exact (say, in a pedantic, condescending forum post), the established conventions are that SI prefixes denote exactly the value you'd expect, and there are special binary prefixes that were created to prevent exactly this level of confusion.

    And you got caught declaring them exactly the opposite of what they are. Stop trying to save face by appealing to Microsoft.

    Moving on

    Does this mean there's no point in trying to play any of the games?

    it may be a henkaku thing rather than vitamin
    for people having any save data issue test it with various retail games

    https://twitter.com/theflow0/status/772751493204156416

    theflow posted on twitter asking about it and some people have mentioned it happens with retail aswell
    read on a few other places recently and its pointing more towards henkaku than vitamin
    but more people testing is needed and i think its important to do so

    although personally has not happened to me like mentioned in my earlier post
    regardless of anything make sure to backup your saves on pc if possibile

    Hey, it *could* happen. I know full well Battlefield 4 corrupted my save 3 or 4 times over a few months and then I said screw it. I haven't played it ever since.
    It was a legit PS3 disc tho.

    We're looking into this and there hasn't been a single person who could tell us "I've never used vitamin and I played this game that I've played before and I lost my save." Apparently one case posted on reddit was for a game known to be buggy and the same save corruption happens on the PS4. If anyone who's never used vitamin knows of a game whose save disappeared, please let us know.

    Also just my personal theory, but it's unlikely to be HENkaku's problem because HENkaku is very simple and makes only a handful of patches < 100 bytes total. Meanwhile, Vitamin is a very complex piece of hardware that is thousands of lines and takes advantage of dozens of undocumented features and restricted APIs. In my opinion, it is much more likely that Vitamin is the culprit.

    Replace "vitamin" with "decrypted game dumps"

    We'll you'll have that in any scene. I was misguided by the whole thing too until I actually did some reading up. It's true that some games don't run yet or crash at certain points, but there is no way that vitamin supports just 5 syscalls. Also Yifan and Flow are investigating the corrupted saves issue so it may end up being a recent HENkaku issue according to them on twitter.

    Either way all we can do is try to guide people the right direction.

    Henkaku v5 is out, fixes the saves issue

    https://twitter.com/yifanlu/status/773205811023650816

    • Changed how PSN spoofing is done. This should fix problems a minority of users experience regarding game saves.
    • Removed update blocking features as a side effect of above.
    • Update to VitaShell 0.91. This is the last VitaShell update bundled into HENkaku. Please use VitaShell’s built in network update feature to update VitaShell as a standalone component.

    I'm 90% sure it wasn't because Vitamin dumps but because of HENkaku.
