PS Vita NAND Pinout

Vita NAND Pinout

As promised, here’s the pinout for the Vita’s eMMC (NAND). Don’t be fooled by the picture; the size of the resistors are TINY. Plus, if you noticed, half the traces are almost hugging the shield base (which is pretty hard to remove without disturbing the resistors). I hope I can find a better way to dump the eMMC than soldering to these points. It’s doubtful that they are exposed elsewhere as I’ve checked every unfilled pad on both sides of the board. Wish me luck…

To get an idea of where these resistors are located, check the iFixit picture for reference (black box is where they are).

To get an idea of the size of the resistors, I’ve placed a 0.7mm pencil lead next to them.

  1. Perhaps a solution would be possible to sniff packets sent from psn games to the console by creating a gateway where you bounce the packets, the store on the device during the download of the demo version is to see how this runs on the device.

  2. even if the store sends packets with encryption, if you download a PSP game we already know how to iso, then you might understand the psn crypt algorithm data

  3. Great work.

    How did you find the pinout of the nand? I wonder how you got these pins? Sorry if this is really stupid.
