    The Yufi hacker dude™ is back with another blog post and this time he asks for your help. The goal is to create an open Vita SDK. He says that the reason why no free SDK exists yet is that there are people with knowledge how to create one, but lack time to do so and there are people who have time but lack knowledge of the Vita's internals. So he created an awesome pdf document describing what's needed for an open toolchain and how Vita's executable format works. You can check out his full post here.

    You can't download the recommended PSVita Developer assistant without 3.51 FW. And as it's a recommendation from Yifan Lu, I'd say there is no reason not to update (I just updated mine as I wait for the PSM application to be approved).

    Well you can, but only if you've got access to a PS3.

    I guess we're all waiting for our applications to be approved and it's almost June.

    Just need a confirmation about this.
    I have 3.5 Vita and want to download this Dev Assistant because of Yifan's Lu hack.
    Do I need to update to new 3.51 version or can I download directly from the Vita with mine 3.5?

    Just downloaded it last night on 3.50 using the Vita Update Blocker. This was directly from PSN however since I don't own a PS3.
