The dynamic duo Mr.Gas & Major_Tom, known for their hacks & tricks around the Vita, have just released a method to dump files from the filesystem!
You might remember the support_uri trick to call the pkg installer through the e-mail app via “psgm:open?titleid=NPXS10031“, right?
Well, this new trick is quite similar and allows you to dump files from EVERYWHERE on the Vita, yes even the NAND partition!
This support_uri needs to be called from withhin the e-mail app just like with the pkg installer and consists of 3 parts:
“email:send?attach=ur0:shell/db/app.db.” (support_uri + location of file + a dot at the end)
You can find a very useful list of Vita’s internal files here: http://yifan.lu/2014/10/17/ps-vita-3-30-…m-listing/
