    I've just used this to hack the Vita. I'm playing Gravity Daze and it's pretty poor.

    Lousy misleading thread title as this is just an extractor not extracted firmware.

    Seems legit based upon the build number.

    Still call it BS unless proven otherwise.

    lol this isn't fake. This is the extractor for the beta firmwares on ps vita prototypes (or so the sources say). Oh, and "Moreover, this tool merely extracts the firmware, it does not decrypt any of the modules within. Regardless, we’re sure this will spark some interest among the homebrew crowd."

    I know, I just couldn't resist making a crap hacking joke because I like making hacking jokes.

    It's mind-boggling how all of a sudden everybody has access to prototype VITA's except me. I'd also like to stress how this is a nasty situation and how I don't like it at all.
