This is a MultiPlatform GUI Interface For Team Molecule / Yifanlu's PSVIMGTools Which is a tool that can be used to decrypt & extract PSVita Backup Files (.psvimg) Providing you know the AID (AccountID) of the account that created said backup


  1. A PC 32 or 64 Bit PC Running Windows, Mac or Linux.
  2. A PSVita on ANY Firmware (even 3.67)
  3. QCMA by Codestation (Normal SONY CMA will work, but not recommended.)
  4. If your on linux you require libcurl4-gnutls-dev libboost-all-dev zlib1g-dev and libgcrypt-dev

Building/Running from source

This software is written in Python 2.7.14,
you will need to install that for whatever operating system you are using,

Requires the following python libaries:

bplistlib (only really needed if you are using a mac) -
requests - (or $ pip install requests)

if you want to build the application you are going to need Pyinstaller
if you just want to run it from source. do $ python

for mac/linux: $ pyinstaller -F
for windows C:> pyinstaller -i icon.ico

after thats done copy the easyinstallers folder from the source folder into dist/run
download psvimgtools from yifanlu and copy it into the dist/run directory (optional: download psvpfstools and put it into the dist/run if you dont, pfs decryption will not work.)
