PlayStation Vita Digital Software Dumping Guide

About PS Vita Digital Software from Playstation Network
After the Scene started discovering how Sony Playstation's servers worked and different solutions to access directly the storaged data were developed, a new milestone was reached when NoNpDrm solution was developed. As Playstion Portable and Playstation 3 had their own solutions for using Sony's encrypted software, NoNpDrm finally opened that door for Vita, allowing all data from Sony's servers to be functional. A project for datting, organizing and bringing access to the data for the users easily was developed: NoPayStation.
In the last years, No-Intro has been datting the same encrypted data that the community has been enabling access, on NoPayStation. As contributing this project helps contributing No-Intro and the other way around, we can point out NoPayStation Contributions FAQ as a guide for gaining access to the path (server link) where the data is storaged and get the proper files too.

Nearly all files for Playstation Vita from PSN come in PKG format.
