Developer some1 well known for his PSP scene contributions, released RegistryEditor v1.0 for PS Vita/PSTV consoles with henkaku exploit. Is tool that help us to edit PS(T)V registry right on screen. No need for pc, all "registry hacks" can be done now from your handheld or PSTV itself.

Tool is for advanced users as messing with system registry can make serious problems for your console, if done incorrectly. Make sure that you know what you are doing before using that. It's look like this tool is also able to edit devkit and testkit registry, but for now we can't use not-retail registry settings for retail consoles, so we can only edit retail registry settings. But maybe in future we can reach DEX settings on CEX like Rebug on PS3.​
Freakler one of administrators hackinformer site developed PSVident. Tool that bring all your Vita/PSTV info in to one place. App have very nostalgic design for first psp users, interface is looking very similar to well known PSPident application for PSP.

Not need for vita registry check on pc, just run app on your Vita/PSTV and all info is there. Is early version so bugs are there, or my pstv have not so small battery (~2000mAh), but most of things is already working very good.​
