TheFlow promises a hack for FW 3.69 in 2019

Memory card authentication busted paving way for USB memory card readers and PSM Dev Apps decrypted!

Last October, TheFlow mentioned having a second exploit chain for the PSVita that could achieve HENKaku on FW 3.69.At that time, he only stated the end of life of the PSVita console as its release date but now, he\'s narrowed that down to 2019.

this is good news, it doesn\'t mean that you should go update your PSVita console to FW 3.69 right now as nothing has been released of now. Furthermore, FW 3.69 doesn\'t grant you any extra abilities as FW 3.69 games are playable on lower FWs thanks to compatibility packs so there\'s nothing to gain by being on the latest FW. As always, you shouldn\'t nag TheFlow about a release date on Twitter (as he\'d most likely just block you, which you\'d deserve) and wait for further news on the matter before updating your Vita/PSTV.

Memory Card authentication routine busted

On a more technical front, the last few days brought us some interesting developments with the recently released decryption tools (and information) from Team Molecule. One of these developments is that [b]Xerpi was able to reverse engineer the F00D module that does memory card authentication, with help from motoharu who did most crypto reverse engineering. The reason why it\'s relevant to regular end-users is that, with this information, it is now possible to create USB PSVita memory card readers for use with PCs. The main advantage of this is that you could easily copy data to/from multiple memory cards if and that if your PSVita dies, you can still extract your own data from it. As of right now, there are no memory card readers available but Xerpi hopes that some manufacturing firm will start producing them on the cheap. To get more information, check out Xerpi\'s recent commits to this GitHub branch.
