    • Increased compatibility dramatically.
    • Added support for additional content (DLC) at 'ux0:addcont_plain'.
    • Added possibility to choose compression level.
    • Added trial -> full patch (You can for example download Minecraft demo, dump it, and run it as full game).
    FREE FULL DEMOS? O_O
    COMPRESSION?
    DLC?

    WHAT IS THIS WIZDARDY:creep:

    I'm glad that he released it, but at the same time I feel bad that he felt pressured to release it quickly...

    I think the speedy release was prompted by the fact that TheFloW himself feels that MaiDumpTool is better in some ways.

    There's even an English version over on reddit. Here's hoping his effort at collaborating with them are fruitful.

    Tbh he had this coming with his childish behaviour towards people asking for release or the source code. Obviously no one is entitled to it, but his reaction was unnecessary. You can calmly, and respectfully just say no, or you releasing it very soon.

    The release of the superior Chinese tool also triggered some sort of anger and jealousy as it rendered Vitamin obsolete. This is due to how the dumping process is far superior and the games compatibility is also much higher.

    What exactly are you reading? TheFloW was quick to praise the work of the Chinese team after he looked into the work they did, and offered to collaborate and share source code with them. He said himself that their dumper is better.

    Where are you detecting 'anger and jealousy'?

    Read his tweet before the praise. He quickly bashed the work and claimed that Vitamin was copied. Then he obviously got a bulk of replies from angry anonymous tweeps bashing him for his reaction. That's when he decided to give it a look. Many people were also blocked because they asked him to collaborate with the Chinese for a future-proof dumper as he's going to be taking a break from the scene for university.

    It was a flippant remark to be sure - we're all human. Not sure I see how that justifies the bile being thrown at him. Have you seen the comments?

    As far as opening the source code goes, he opened VitaShell and appealed for contributors precisely because he will be withdrawing from the scene soon for university. I think the added complication with Vitamin is much of the code probably wasn't written by him, so he probably couldn't make the decision to release the code by himself.

    That's impossible due to language barrier.
    At least it's difficult due to language barrier.
    About the best that could happen is to share source. I think Vitamin's source is already shared, so it's up to the Chinese side to share theirs, if they care to.
    I hope someone adds the EBOOT only function to Vitamin that the Chinese dumper has.

    Excellent news!! Now I can dump the full version of Urban Trial Freestyle with ease like I have always wanted to!! :D

    However, more importantly, I would be very much interested to see the Ratchet & Clank series become compatable. I remember dumping my old R&C Trilogy cartridge (before I flogged it to my local CEX store) and it not working on either 1.0 or 1.1, so I'm pretty much on the edge of my seat at the moment where that's concerned; waiting for a working dump and what-not...

    I've seen the comments, and I do blame those retarded good for nothing leachers who just wanted to pressure him to release vitamin 2.0 for their piracy fix. However, his arrogant behaviour towards the Chinese tool was childish. Yes, Vitamin is a big achievement considering how long it took them

    Open sourcing, is entirely his choice and the rest of the team of course. Even if he decides to not release the source, that is his choice and should be respected. Some tweeps were just asking normal questions about the source code, and collaboration with the Chinese who released the new dumping tool, and his replies were absolutely rude. No one should be allowed a pass for such behaviour just because he, and his team were the first to release a dumping tool.
