    It's been asked of you to provide where the CIA came from and you've yet to answer that simple question.

    THAT iso site. I didnt think where it came from really mattered.

    The title key might have been altered then. You never know what someone has done to a CIA on that iso site.

    Thats why I want to contribute to the title key site. So that others can get their copy from NUS instead.

    it does, not so much as the url you downloaded it from - but if you made the cia yourself, or if you got it from a friend who used some tool... etc etc
    but if it is just from the iso site, it is most likely not a good, straight from cdn untouched, cia.

    and it isn't, because the key isn't real. so, someone will have to dump the ticket from when they have bought it :)
    thanks for trying though.

    I imagine a cartridge dump with Decrypt9 wouldn't work either?

    So the easiest method would be to buy it from the eShop, use Decrypt9 to obtain the encTitleKeys.bin or some other program to obtain the title keys for that game?

    Just for curiosity... do you know any methode to bruteforce a titlekey from a content file?
    I know breaking 128 bit encryption is no easy feat but still it would be nice to try.
    Also trying with a random generated rainbow table would be interesting if by PURE coincidence a valid titlekey can be found.

    maybe yes, if you have a quantum computer from NASA

    Yes, I know it would need server cluster... but has anyone ever written such code?

    guessing a key via bruteforce is nothing new or specific to 3ds/wii u, sure it is technically possible but you will just have to wait a very very long time.
    so it's not worth it, it is much much much cheaper to buy the game and get the key, compared to getting the best computer in the world, and waiting many years.

    Yes I know that if you compare the effort... than its a no brainer, buy and decrypt instead of trying 16^256 combinations.

    No the actual question was, if ever somebody tried it... from cearps post I get it, that somebody has tried.
    It actually does not matter if such a method is usefull for daily live.
    Sending ppl to the moon wasn't usefull either... could have sent a plain probe with a flag too like the soviets did. :mellow:
