Release: VitaCID (get your PS Vita Console ID)
Hacker Major_Tom just released VitaCID, a tools that gives you access to your Vita Console ID (the equivalent of PS3’s IDPS).
What is VitaCID?
VitaCID is a tool that runs on a HENkaku-enabled PS Vita (currently Vita firmware 3.60 only). It retrieves your Vita’s console ID and writes it in a file at the root of your Vita System (that you can later on retrieve for example via FTP).
Currently the tool is of little use for the vast majority of users, but it is expected that we’ll see “Console activation” homebrews released soon, that will let you activate a 3.60 Vita without having to update. Pretty useful for those of us who ended up with their hacked Vita deactivated, for any reason.
A sample activation script can be found on the vitadevwiki. People with the relevant skills should be able to turn this into a self contained homebrew fairly soon 🙂
Looking for more? We have a full list of Emulators for the PS Vita, an up to date list of Homebrews for the PS Vita, and an All in one guide for Vita 3.60 describing everything you can do with your hacked PS Vita.
