    Trophy Points:
    Developer @SilicaAndPina has released psvimgtools 0.2 today. For those wondering what this tool is, it is a GUI interface for Team Molecule/Yifanlu's psvimgtools. This is a tool that can be used to decrypt and extract PS Vita backup files (.psvimg) as long as you know the AID of the account that created the backup. This tool works up to firmware 3.63 (As of 3/4/17) and should until a new firmware update arises.


    One problem yifan's first release had was it command-line only and could be hard to use by inexperienced users, so developer SilicaAndPina made a GUI frontend which has all the functions of the original psvimgtools with a nice GUI. NO this doesn't enable piracy (except for esps) and NO this will not lead to 3.63 spoofing for games or PSN.

    • v0.2 Changelog:
      • Fixed the black screen error in ARK-2 EasyInstaller.
      • Added PARAM.SFO parsing.
      • Added WhitelistHack EasyInstaller.
      • Added UriCaller EasyInstaller.
      • Now supports Windows 32-Bit!
      • Corrected spelling errors.
      • Fixed a lot of bugs.

      v0.1 Changelog:

      • Initial Release​
      • 64-Bit devices only.​
      • Linux requires libgcrpyt11-dev​
      • DEB/UBUNTU: sudo apt-get install libgcrypt11-dev​

    • This is a list of current features this tool has:
      • QCMA Intergration, SilicaAndPina has tried his best to make this intergrate well with QCMA. For example when you start the app for the first time it will automatically find your 'QCMA Backups Folder'. Then it will automatically find your accounts AID, and download CMA Key. You can also trigger both of these process'es to occur manually.​
      • Quick resign, quickly change the owner of a backup. (Note: Only DRMFree content will run on incorrect accounts!)​
      • Extract and create backup files.​
      • EasyInstaller, enables you to easily install, hidden applications, ARK-2, VHBL whitelist hack, And URICaller. SilicaAndPina does plan on adding more options to this later.​
      • Account manager, save multiple accounts's AID and KEY's.​
      • Reading Param.SFO file to display backup NAME instead of TITLEID.​

    • This is a list of features possibly planned for future releases:
      • A method of knowing how much longer it will take, progress bar/indicator.
      • Remove 'Topics' app EasyInstaller.
