Release: Vita Title Update HMAC-256 Tool

As it seems cfwprohpet is on a run lately releasing handy tools for the psvita.


Probably only a few people really noticed that he released an updated version of the EML file generator with better enhanced user interface a couple of days ago. And because I think his work deserves alot more attention here’s a little update on his current project.

What can we do with this tool?

Basically what this allows you to do is calculate the title update download links for any game/app update package with its TitleID.

This tool will probably be more of use in the future but its really nice to see it working already. 🙂

Heres the official description:

A Tool for the from proxima released Title Update HMAC Key. You either can Drop a key into the GUI, set your own path to your vitakeys folder or you use the standard one which will be “C:\\vitakeys”. Name of the key should be “title-hmac-100”. Also will the Tool hash your key and compare it against the known SHA1 value and tell you if the key is valid or not.

Have Fun – cfwprophet –
