The scene Group advises to wait for a proper tool, once full kernel access is available in Henkaku to enable proper decrypted dumps, instead of using modified files/tricks to the current dumps using Vitamin.

Hmm can't say I disagree with what they've said.
Vitamin and Maidumper are excellent tools, of course, but having a dump that is a near perfect image of the game would be ideal. Let's hope everything is as they predict, with new tools after HENkaku source is released.

why should one wait, when almost full liblariay of games is available already?
Get 70 hours into Final Fantasy before a fatal crash caused by a bad dump wipes your save forever. That's just an example.

They kind of mentioned that in the .nfo.

idk about you guys but I have wait for 4 years for this to happen + there are also a bunch of game I haven't completed yet on other devices so wait a bit more for a " almost perfect - perfect " it's okay.

Don't wanna play 40 hours into an RPG and then game fail + lost save or something similar like that

I can't disagree with this statement either.

A proper solution for "backups" will use 1:1 copies of the original games.
Current dumping methods are inelegant workarounds, trying to wedge backup loading into a homebrew solution. The current dumping tools are certainly impressive technically - being able to patch an executable to force it to dump itself and then reconstruct a binary from that, bypassing both DRM and ASLR without needing kernel control - is very impressive. But this is also the source of many incompatibilities, and it means that Vitamin and Mai dumps are inferior to original games.

I imagine that if/when this scene matures and we get an open source CFW, people will move away from installing .vpks and using spotty dumping tools. You'll get a PS3-like system that allows you to install clean game .pkg files and fake .rif licenses from .rap files and/or you'll get a cart mounter/emulator (for .psv roms, perhaps?).
Original binaries will be superior to the frankenstein monsters current tools are able to dump.
