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 is an extremely simple way to get the Trinity exploit on your device which you should surely check out!
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 formost 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
Even though FinTrinity was released very recently, I encountered zero bugs and the process was very fast!
Python installed in order to run the application itself (FinTrinity is merely a Python script that works surprisingly well)
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!
If you were wondering what happens if you try running Trinity on FW 3.60, the answer is not much
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 😉
I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.
