Developer TheFloW released a minor update to his tool to decrypt and dump PS Vita games, Vitamin. The update improves compatibility with some cartridge games, and fixes some bugs.
What is Vitamin for PS Vita?
Vitamin is a tool to decrypt and dump your PS Vita games. In practice, it allows people using a HENkaku-enabled PS Vita to run DRM-free versions of PS Vita games, and backups.

From the changelog:

Given that the main use of Vitamin is to decrypt and pirate games (although backups and plugins are a very legit, and in my opinion fair, use case as well), I have decided to not allow links to this tool on Wololo.net for the time being. People have rightfully mentioned that we have been distributing PSP Custom Firmware on this site, wondering how that is different. This is true, but there are two reasons I feel these are ok. First, PSP Custom Firmwares have way more goals than enabling piracy, in particular they are a requirement for most homebrews to run. Secondly, game Piracy had been mainstream on the PSP since 2005, 4 years before we started distributing Custom Firmwares here at wololo.net. The financial damage, in my opinion, is way more significant here as the Vita is still “current gen" and Vitamin is a first of its kind. We can talk about this policy again in 4 years.
