    Title says it all. I would like to buy this game - how do I do this but not lose my hack? I don't believe backups work. I bought this on steam already too.

    Hello,

    All you have to do is spoof 3.65 to buy it on PSN. Then, the game will boot because it does not require FW higher than 3.60.

    I have done this myself. Actually, one of the only reasons I even stick on 3.60 is for overclocking. Be aware, this game does not work with the OC plugin. I have tried numerous times without luck.

    Correct, the game boots on 3.60, the only reason we don't have non-legit versions of the game is because it's undumpable, not because it requires a higher firmware.

    Is there somewhere to be able to tell what games require which firmware? I'd love to buy the Nonary Games but I'm not sure if it requires higher than 3.60

    Does anybody even know what is it that it makes it undumpable?

    I remember something about the dumped eboot not being dumped right. Is it possible this game had more advanced AP than sony's 1st party titles?

    I would like to know what makes this game (and any other for that matter) "undumpable". Can someone please explain more in a more detailed way? (technically speaking is welcome).

    Games that require higher firmwares probably rely on services only present in the higher firmware. Or maybe expect certain memory locations or something that changed with the firmware update. I don't know. But if it isn't a simple flag check (that we can spoof to say it is 3.65) I don't think it is something that we can get around (unless Vita gets emuNAND).

    It's something with the way Maidump (and Vitamin) dump games, that's about all I really know. I doubt it has anything to do with Anti-piracy, it's more than likely the dumpers themselves which are the issue (as they're not exactly "clean", so to speak). It's similar to the reason why some games couldn't be dumped on Vitamin v1, but Vitamin 2 can.

    Games that require 3.61 or higher are undumpable because they use different encryption keys. Sony essentially "changed the locks", so the old keys on 3.60 can't decrypt the eboot and the game can't be played. The problem with some 3.60 or lower games being undumpable is, as I mentioned above, simply because the dumpers are missing some sort of function that results in an error in being dumped.

    noun; a particular place or position.
    It's quite annoying when a PS Vita game you've purchased is 3.60+ but its japanese release is 3.60. I do hope the PS Vita hacking community can eventually find a workaround, even if it's just being able to play the legit games/carts.

    Oh OK, I understand. That might be also the reason why version spoofing doesn't work when trying to play 3.60+ games using Henkaku/TaiHen. Thanks!

    Logging in to PSN no longer works, your account will likely be deactivated and you won't be a legitimate to play the game.

    However, a new way to play pirated games is being worked on and is mostly finished, which will allow for clean dumps, meaning Axiom Verge will run without issue once the method is fully released.

    Do any of the newly released software in the past few days allow the backup of this game to be played?
