Henkaku Updated To Allow PSN Access

Henkaku got an update today. It now spoofs your firmware and also allows PSN access. Normally I am against modded consoles on the networks, but in the case of the vita I don’t mind. Only reason Sony keeps putting out updates now is to stop us from reviving a console they tried to kill.


Full update details can be found at: http://yifan.lu/2016/08/27/henkaku-update

Playstation Vita Cartridge Dump By motoharu-gosuto

motoharu-gosuto has posted the most awesome write up about a project he is involved in, he has been working on the project dubbed PSVCD for 6+ months, here is some information about it:



PSVCD stands for Playstation Vita Cartridge Dump. Basically this project summarizes my half year research on the ways to do a hardware dump of PS Vita cart. I think I should indicate that this research has no relation to Cobra Black Fin project and team.

Currently the process of dumping PS Vita carts is quite involved because you have to create a custom board. On the other hand – this approach does not have any firmware dependency since it is not related to software hacking. Current version of the board is constructed from DIP components but I think in the future I will create PCB layout and smaller board.

So the good news are that carts actually can be dumped. You should be able to do it if you complete all the steps of this readme. However this does not mean that you will be able to play cartridge dump on different instance of PS Vita. These dumps are the same dumps that you will acquire through Henkaku. And such dumps have multiple levels of encryption protection.

[ATTENTION] Beware Of Dangerous People And Malicious App’s – #HENkaku

Last week i posted this thread, warning people about some dangers with Henkaku and playing with the Vita:


Now it seems i need to make you guys very aware of what you actually install and also make you very wary of who to trust, first of all DO NOT TRUST:



Not only is this guy a moron, but he releases malicious Homebrew, Homebrew that is capable of wiping your Vita loosing you EVERYTHING that you have on it, below i will explain what happened:

Yesterday the moron posted a video showing him running an a Harry Potter game on his Vita, but when you ran the game, it reformatted the PS Vita, what Silica had done was create a malicious app and disguised it as a game:


it was even in .VPK format for easy installation and the thing is he provided a link to the file, what followed was that someone uploaded the file to a Reddit page stating that it was the Harry Potter Lego game, people used it and lost their legit games, homebrew and other stuff:


Here is a post from Reddit discussing the game and its affects:


Read Entire Post Here

Now i see dumb fucks defending him and what he has done and i will do a weird Q&A thing here:

But he didn’t post it to Reddit…

1.) He posted it on his YouTube channel, so he knew someone would do something with it.

2.) You do not know that it was not him that posted it on Reddit under a different name.

3.) Even if he did not post it, he is just as guilty as the one who did.

Meh its only pirates that were affected, fuck them……

Initially yes posted to the piracy section, but that is not the point, it could have been posted as a normal Homebrew such as RetoArch and it would have had the same affect.

The file size was small, people were dumb for downloading it….

True the size of the file was extremely small, but that does not mean it could not have been a legit file, such as say an eBoot that has been decrypted, perhaps this is what people thought it was when they downloaded it.

It was just a PoC, Silica didn’t mean any harm…

Had he only posted the video, then yes you could call it a PoC, but he released the file with the full knowledge that it would do harm.


Now i found out about this malicious Homebrew, i seen this tweet from yesterday which made me facepalm:


But it gets worse:




Silica probably wont be the only dumb ass i post about in this thread, but he is the first.
