Developer Joel16 returns once again with another update to his hardware information tool VITAident. This is a somewhat big update since it completely revamps the look of the GUI-version of the application, giving it a more Ubuntu-like look. According to the developer it’s also faster and I can’r t really deny his claim that it is now more user-friendly, because it really is.
On the actual application side of things, you now have a display for both Spoofed Firmware and the actual Firmware version your Vita is sporting. The automatic screenshot has been removed to make exiting the non-GUI version faster.
What is VITAident?
VitaIdent is a tool in the vein of tools such as 3DSident, PSPident and PS2ident that are really cool know-all tools about your console hardware. It will tell you all sorts of information about your console like firmware and model information, battery information to the most minute detail (including temperatures and voltage) and now even tells your own PSN information, along with CEX/DEX/IDU/Debug/Tool information. It is available in both with both a GUI-based and non-GUI versions.
Changelog for 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.
All of the above^.
New Ubuntu like design. (Cleaner, faster and more user friendly).
If you’re deciding to use the GUI version isntead, please download the VID000016.zip, and copy the folder VID000016 into your Vita’s ux0:/data/
To download the latest version of VITAident just head on over to Joel16’s GitHub and download whichever version you prefer. Remember that if you’re going to use the GUI version, you need to also download this file. In any case you can download the non-GUI version here and the GUI version here.
