Are you the type of person who wants to know every single detail about the hardware you carry around with you or own? Well fear not, developer Joel16 has got you covered! He has recently come to the Henkaku forums here at Wololo to release his VitaIdent tool so that you can know every single detail that you can about the hardware you carry, from your consoles’ ID to firmware and model info. Straight from the developer’s mouth, here is what inspired him to do this:
Considering the usefulness of 3DSident, PSPident and PS2ident, I decided on making a similar project for PS Vita. VITAident is a tool inspired by PSPident – which was originally developed by Jas0nuk and later updated by Yoti. The tool was used to obtain more information about your PSP’s motherboard, firmware etc. Similarly the VITA version – VITAident aims to display more information about your PS VITA. It is currently a work in progress.
Here is the feature-set from the initial release of VitaIdent straight from the mouth of the developer himself (along with a screenshot of the app running):
– Displays ARM, BUS and GPU clock frequency. – Displays battery life time. – Displays battery percentage. – Displays battery remaining capacity. – Displays language. – Displays firmware and model info. – Displays PS VITA CID (Console ID). – Displays battery temperature in both degrees C and F. – Displays battery voltage. – Displays SD free and total capacity. (Thanks TheOfficialFloW) – Displays GPU Xbar clock frequency.
To download this release of VitaIdent just head to the forums to the release thread or go directly to his github for the file directly. Remember that this is an initial release so bugs should be reported to the release thread and since features might be added later on it’s always a good idea to have the link on hand…
…or you can just keep checking the front-page of this website 😉
Anyway, everyone enjoy and happy gaming!
PSVident, an alternative to VitaIdent
Note from Wololo: You might also want to check PSVident by Freakler, a similar tool with slightly different functionality. We haven’t talked about that release in its own article, not due to some particular preference, but because of lack of time.
To install & run the tools mentioned in this article, please note that you will need to have a PS Vita running firmware 3.60 with the HENkaku hack. To install HENkaku, please check our PS Vita CFW page.
