Shortly after Yifan Lu posted a comparison chart of current Vita dumpers with key points and general info. Lots of PS Vita hacking activity lately, all leading up to the final goal; to backup game dumps properly and play them. Thanks to all involved, much appreciated. BTW: Might as well stick the comparison into this post.

The Black Fin is a peer-to-peer game cart sharing device for PS Vita that was released in September 2016

Now the lead developer behind the Cobra Black Fin has partially leaked info from the project and shared his experience developing it with wololo.net

Targets included Brazilian Minecraft servers and the PlayStation Network

Everyone remembers, the Mirai botnet attack wave that last October brought down all major services, but a new report suggests the original target was really PlayStation Network, and the attackers were a large group of 'Angry Gamers' that used the 'Internet of Things' malware to take over most of the world's connected devices to launch one of the largest attacks ever recorded so far on the Internet.
Scene developers '01cedric' and 'Swaqq' have released their online beta WEBRTM modding tool for Call of Duty on PS3!

New developments on the now Classic PlayStation 3 console are becoming increasingly scarce, but they still exist, mostly like the injection of games on OFW, but others want to cheat and mod their games while they still work on online via PSN and this new project by 01cedric & Swaqq does just that, and they nicely enough have released beta online interfact to change your SPRX and EBOOT files from your PS3 games, which you can then reinject them back onto your HDD to enjoy the modded extra special features of Call of Duty.
Nice Windows GUI tool for stuffing your PlayStation 3 games into your OFW HDD Backup Image.

It has been known for a while you can basically 'inject' games into your OFW HDD Backup on your PlayStation 3 console, but some of the existing tools are a little basic in converting and injecting, and it just happens SvenGDK didn't know they even existed, so as long-time scene developer he has generated his own tool called 'PS3 Convert & Inject' and the first release looks very nice and works well, and he will soon correct bugs and add more and other translations to it so everyone worldwide will be able to enjoy using it.

An clone of the MTX KEY ModChip

It has only been a couple of weeks since the big announcement of the PS4 MTX KEY ModChip and since then E3-Tech Team has resurfaced after a long period of silence since their glory days of E3 ODE PRO and before that E3 Flasher, but now that have announced the E3 Share which is basically a clone of MTX KEY chip with big more features, and hopefully a way to update it if Sony blocks it.
For some reason since the announcement on E3-Tech's...

Sony’s legal quest to remove its leaked developer’s kit from the Web
Effort appears to be squashing leak discussion and homebrew SDKs as well.

Back in the day of when the PlayStation 3 consoles and 'scene' was hot, having a SDK leak was the norm, there was a few of them from time to time, but so far in the new PlayStation 4 era, it has been hard-pressed to get hold of actual full SDK without becoming an official Sony developer, but somehow 'KromeMods' got access and he leaked them over the weekend, but of course Sony sent out their army of Men In Black takedown bots, and almost all links have been erased from the internet's memory with legal threats also as usual! :)
