    I looked here, someone saw a tweet about a Chinese hacker decrypting a game, but still no English confirmation etc - so I looked on Chinese sites to get closer to the source, since surely Chinese users will have tested it before people on twitter lol.

    <snip>
    <snip>
    I think this is the true source: <snip>

    I don't think a public method on how to decrypt the games fully is out, but at least it is possible.

    @ like 4am China, so like 3 or 4 hours ago.

    (How can I give sources if they are warez sites, most Chinese website probably has warez lol... no way around that, but not easy to navigate so I think it's ok.)

    EDIT: non-warez link to wololo about it the mods put in here (not a source, and wololo doesn't want to put the source either)

    Will be pretty neat if the floodgates are opened on the vita scene.

    it's like team molecule shot it with a rubber bullet, but it's still alive and although we just want to eat the meat, we are closer because at least the vita is on the ground and we can smell it and get closer to it and people are saying it might take a while until we can hit it some more and it's difficult and people keep poking it everyday but the vita doesn't get any worse and meanwhile we want the meat so bad and the vita is just lying there still alive and some people in fact think we won't get to eat any of the vita meat but we keep close watching it on the floor moving about and writhing it knows it's time will be up, even if there are non believers and me and a few others are all ready with a knife and fork and spoon ziplock bag to take some meat home because i'm not sleeping until i get this meat i don't know how to kill it and get the meat myself it's way to hard i don't have the skills but thankfully this chinese dude in china used his skills and sent a missile to the vita and blew it up and now everyone can eat the meat that we have been waiting for i have been waiting since 2012 i'm hungry yummy yum time to eat

    as long as we get a dev leak every week, i'm happy.

    but, i will be really annoyed if it is. but - (free to disagree) - i don't think the user would have said dumped from cart unless he meant it.
    better to just be honest, or say nothing about where the game came from. but yeah, maybe he was getting our hopes up? possibly, but i think it's more likely it's actually decrypted really from cart.

    All you need is to decrypt everything else (easy), and then use this or something like it to get a decrypted eboot.
    A vpk is literally just a renamed zipfile.

    hard to tell, since the author likely (weiweiok55) just drop the bomb XD and he did not answer anything at all, so they are evoking Yifan or any other dev so they can figure it out if this is a decrypted retail game or just a devout leak, Wololo is already aware of this so, pretty sure we will have more info soon.
