- Following up on my previous
post, below is a video demonstration for those interested dubbed PS Vita Crash CMA Debug Time via Xcode Execution.
I just released a fast small video to show the crash and freeze of the PlayStation Vita system using Xcode Execution. I also explain how to check every information coming from the CMA to PS Vita (debugger).
Below is a pastebin with tutorial and the video that show you something interesting.. As I promise and I do what I said
The tutorial to Debug CMA PS Vita Under MacOS and Xcode: http://pastebin.com/40FrAJXg
CMA Debugging PS Vita Under Xcode Execution Tutorial
You need a Dev account Apple to have Xcode that you can use your MacOSX under a Development Environment
1- Launch Xcode (Spotlight -> Xcode)
2- Create a Empty Project (MacOSX)
3- Enter whatever name on the Product Name (For Example PSV)
4- A new window appear, change command-line builds use Debug than release
5- Click on BreakPoints
6- On the top menu of the Xcode, choose Product and make a new scheme and name your new scheme psv for example, press ok
7- A new windows appear that you can edit your scheme on the left menu you can see RUN click on it and edit the run configutation build configuration -> Debug Executable (you need to choose the CMA.APP) for that, just click on None to Other and here you choose the CMA.APP Debugger, you can choose ever LLDB or GDB (choose by default GDB) Launch = Auto
8- Choose Diagnostics and here active every option Memory Management (malloc, Guard Malloc, Objective-C) Logging (Memory/execptions/Dyld) Debugger (Legacy->Stop on debugger and debugstr) Click OK (don't forget to active breakpoints before click Ok) click OK
9- Plug-in your PS Vita and Click on RUN (if you are connected in Wifi you just connect fast and disconnect)
Xcode/IO Framework, etc it's the best way to exploit the PS Vita under MacOSX and as you would see, the Sony have a strong access to your kernel system that i really don't appreciate and can control everything
The PS Vita use also NFS -> Network File System and Open Remote System File that ping pong between the PS Vita and Sony Server.
Hope that would help some smart dev
And here the video that show you a example of what you can do
Some PS Vita user ask me the PS Vita Windows Driver that i made it's available on the older thread PS Vita 1.50 Firmware but I reuploaded the driver that you don't need to search
Download: PS Vita Driver (Nabnab)
It's hope to you, if you want to use your PS Vita use it and update don't worry about the update right now, anyway FW 1.06 is a firmware with too much bug that give you some problem it's unstable and some app/game will not run correctly with this Firmware. It's more easy with 1.06 but also more unstable.
