Yet Another Homebrew Scene Release For All To Enjoy!

This amazing Homebrew Utility by 'cnsldv' allows you to exchange the Vita Memory Stick of a console to another console, even if it has a different firmware, without the problem of re-formatting your card allowing you to access the data on both of your Vita's.
Alot of people own more than one PlayStation Vita now, because of HENkaku they keep one at the hackable v3.60 firmware, and the other at the current legit official firmware, only problem is Sony locks down your memory sticks stopping you from using it on both handhelds, but no longer because CardUnlock v1.0 by cnsldv allows you to use your memory stick from your higher FW Vita on your v3.60 Vita, and of course this same app will also work vice-versa for those with the handy-dandy Tiny PlayStation TV console! :)

"I have a duty to the public who are worried about this," says judge.

Teenage hacker Adam Mudd has been sentenced to two years in prison after creating software used to hack businesses such as Microsoft and Sony.
Instead of the normal 10 to 20 years for DDoS hacker, this one only got 2 years, as lesson for others, because of his young age, his bullying at school, and the fact he was doing it to gain 'friendship status' among others, instead of doing it to really earn money!

Yet Another Homebrew Scene Utility Release For All To Enjoy!

The one problem with enabling HENkaku on your Vita, is they you need Internet access, and sometimes that is not possible when you are on the go, and offline installers for HENkaku generally only work on your Desktop PC, but again when you are on the go that is not an option, but most people carry around with them a smartphone, and lucky for those using Android phones, with this app all you need to do is enable your phone's WiFi hotspot, and bang from your v3.60 Vita you can access the Server and switch over to HENkaku mode!

Not too long ago qwertyoruiopz released a functional (and surprisingly stable) exploit for 4.0x firmwares. No - it's not the same as the Pegasus exploit which could have been used in ChaitinTech's jailbreak chain, but it uses some similar concepts.
The PlayStation 4 Scene been on fire since @qwerty (aka) Luca of iOS exploit fame, released his JailbreakMe Webkit RCE Portal for playing with using the PS4 Web Browser found on mainly the v4.06 firmware, but there was no repo of the code itself, so recently...
