Bamhm182 releases FinTrinity, a tool to automate the Trinity Exploit Installation Process – You can now hack your FW 3.69/3.70 PSVita or PSTV in seconds!
A few days ago, TheFlow released his long-awaited Trinity Exploit for FW 3.69/3.70 and like h-encore, installing it requires a bit of work. Now, thanks to Bamhm182, liberating your FW 3.69/3.70 PSVita or PSTV can be done in a few clicks thanks to FinTrinity!
What is FinTrinity?
FinTrinity, by bamhm182, is a piece of software that automates the vast majority of the Trinity exploit installation process. It uses Python scripting to make things possible and while it’s still in development, it worked quite well in my experience and finished its job in a few seconds. As of right now, FinTrinity only supports Windows, has a pretty basic GUI (but it’s still enough for most users) and doesn’t allow you to choose between multiple game backups if you happen to have multiple PSP games backed up through QCMA as it automatically chooses for you.
However, bamhm182 plans to add support for other platforms and a selector to be able to choose whichever game you want so in a short while, FinTrinity will become the all-in-one solution for installing the Trinity exploit!
How do I use FinTrinity?
FinTrinity is pretty simple to use if you follow these steps:
- Before using it, you must have the following handy:
- A Windows PC (its creator tested it on Windows 10 but I can confirm it works flawlessly on Windows 7 SP1) and your PSVita next to you along with the data cable
- Python installed in order to run the application itself (FinTrinity is merely a Python script that works surprisingly well)
- You may get the Windows installer from this link
- QCMA with your PSVita already registered to it and a PSP game backed up (check out this article to learn more about how/why to get a PSP game)
- You should also make a backup of the PSP game you have backed up just in case something goes wrong
- After you have the above prerequisites ready, download FinTrinity from this link
- Extract the ZIP file you just downloaded and open GUI.py if you want to use the GUI version or FinTrinity.py if you want to use the command line version
- If using the GUI version, hit confirm to patch the game that FinTrinity chose. If you’re using the command line version, type “yes”
- Wait a few seconds and you’ll get a message telling you that the process succeeded. The bubble backup in question has now been Trintified
- Refresh QCMA’s database (right click on the tray icon) and copy the bubble back to your PSVita
- Enjoy your newly hacked PlayStation Vita 🙂
As you can see, using FinTrinity is extremely simple and having tested it myself, I’m quite surprised at how quickly it does its job. In light of this, I’d personally recommend using FinTrinity even if you’re up to the task of applying Trinity to a PSP backup yourself since there’s little reason not to use this application!
Now that you’ve hacked your PSVita, you might as well install some great homebrew so grab VHBB and install whatever interests you. You might also be interested in downgrading to FW 3.60/3.65 through Modoru in order to get an untethered hack that needn’t be applied every reboot.
On the other hand, if you’ve already explored the PSVita homebrew list, you should check out thp’s Chro.mono 2 port to the PSVita which was released a short while ago 😉
