Scene developer cfwprophet has released a new tool for the vita called Simply Vita RCO Extractor. This tool extracts the data table of the Vita's RCO file and converts it to extensions viewable on the PC. For example, it will convert .gim to .png, .vag to .wav and .dds to .gtf. Furthermore, the SVRE Tool also functions as a CXML conversion tool as well as allowing users to rebuild a CXML container. For those of you interested in using the SVRE Tool, check out the instructions in the developer's comments[break][/break] below.

PS VITA / PS TV PS Vita Bubble Hack Update
Katsu is at it again but this time revealing some minor information regarding the bubble hacks we have been seeing on Twitter. This method is deemed useless at the moment and has gotten a few developers hot under the collar since any hints regarding the bubble hack could get Sony onto a early patching spree. The instructions you will find below will get you, with the use of a PS3 and PS Vita exploit, installing you very own bubble on the PS Vita. [break].[/break]However at the moment the bubble will only serve as some visual stimulation since it does nothing more but Katsu does mention homebrew is inbound. Check it out.


Thanks to Hakaze for the news tip.

Developers CodeLion and Major_Tom, with the help of others, have released a new tool for the PS Vita. JSoS Module Dump is a module dumper as the name implies and will aid in developer research. This tool is used with the Vita webkit exploit that was recently released.


Many of you have probably heard about the recent webkit exploit for the PS Vita. A few days ago, Developer acez made a blog entry explaining various tests performed on the Vita exploit and the findings. Admittedly, the majority of what acez did is way over my head, but what I did take away from his blog post is that the exploit is not something that allows someone to run whatever they want on the Vita. Instead, the exploit is limited to the privileges of the Webkit process, meaning, there is still a lot of work to be done before the Vita is truly hacked. If this is something, I would invite you to take a look at the original article which I linked below.
