    Developer Joel16 is at it again with another update to VITAident. The previous build, been version 0.4, introduced some added model detection and the developer further improves said detection for 'PTEL and PDEL' models. For taiHEN users you get better fself compression and for those following the 3DS scene you will note some other subtle changes. Lets take a look at the release notes and be sure to check out the other tabs for further info.​


    • Original:
      • More accurate model detection for PTEL and PDEL models.
      • Includes fself compression. (Please switch to Taihen)
      • Displays values in their respectful colored category (example red star = red values, just like 3DSident)
      • Detects whether the model supports 3G/WiFi.
      • Display battery charging status.
      • Now uses any key to exit the app (just like 3DSident)
      • Includes all of the above except doesn't use any key to exit.
      • Added a minimal customization option to change the font color. (please update your ux0:/data/VID000016 folder)

      • Displays PS Vita Unit (Cex/Dex).
      • Displays Vita motherboard.

      • Displays battery percentage, and charging status.
      • Displays battery remaining capacity.
      • Displays battery temperature in both degrees C and F.
      • Displays battery voltage.
      • Displays PSN username.
      • Displays SD free and total capacity (Thanks TheOfficialFloW).
      • Displays enter button (Cross/Circle).

      Haha that's fine. Luckily two other people were able to help me out with the tests and I was able to add the checks into the module identifying function.

      I'm sorry I got caught up in holiday stuff and feel terrible. Sorry man you have been so good to me making custom builds for my ME CFW's and I feel like a douche.

      Nah that's fine lol. I tend to get extremely busy especially during college time so it's completely understandable.

      @Joel16 I don't think they make them but how does this handle a PSTV running DEX shell and apps? Haven't had time to try it yet myself. Just curious if anyone has and if so how did it go? If not I can do that test for you bud to help out since I have been slacking on the testing.
    7. Joel16
      Hm I've never heard of a DEX PSTV before, but if it exists, my model check will definitely fail at it. If there is ever confirmed to be a PSTV development unit, then I can easily modify the function to identify this.

      I haven't tried the CEX->DEX converter thing though, so I'm not too sure about it.

      I have a just such a PSTV. It is running a good portion of DEX apps but most importantly it's running DEX shell. It's a nifty little app called CEX2REX by @SilicaAndPina, yes I know but he has a false bad rap for most of it.

      But I am running DEX CMA, DEX PKG Installer (and working without IDU mode BTW seems he hexedited the binary to work) and many more standard DEX features. Even some os0:/ files not just files/apps from ur0:/ so I will give it a go today and see how it responds. I'll post results and screen shots.

      Working (slowly as I have to many projects going on with sparse time) on getting more and more added to the conversion package. A lot of features are working like trophy lock and unlock, added back stock DEX apps but also added some missing like the PSN Store if we ever get back online. It's doubtful anytime soon but best to be ready ahead of time instead of scrambling when/if it does become available.

      Cause a black background with colorful text, and a simple logo shouldn't count as a GUI :p

      Actually, here's the release:

      VITAident v0.6

      • Detect spoofed system version, and actual firmware version. System Version -> System software version (spoofed) Firmware Version -> Actual firmware version.
      • Remove automatic screenshot upon exit. (Not necessary since the VITA allows us to take screenshots natively.) This in turn improves the speed upon exiting the original version.
      GUI Version:
      • All of the above^.
      • New Ubuntu like design. (Cleaner, faster and more user friendly).

      Download (Please update your ux0:/data/VID000016 if you're using the GUI version)
