    If this can make a 3DS region-free for me that is more than enough reason to buy one.

    I'm just hoping it's not going to be the same cat and mouse game that every other firmware update can patch. I'm hoping the exploit leads to some kind of anti-updating mechanism, so we can block official updates much like the Wii blocks Disc updates. That way when we've got the green flag to update, we can do it manually, like with the PSP.

    If it's anything like the Wii, they'll probably try and block it a few times and then give up. You might say they've learned from the Wii, but their online strategy says otherwise, right?

    Nintendo can't force-update the system if you disable the wireless, now can they? If we can block updates with the hack, we'll be set and be able to play any game we want!

    Thanks for this thread. The "we hacked it" thread is super long and continues to gain pages every time I check the site. Will be checking page 1 here from now on. Unless an odd interesting thread gets posted.

    I honestly can't think of a single system that was actually ruined by the piracy. Hell the wii probably had one of the highest piracy rates around and has top sales to show for it, PSP also got good sales as well as the 360 (although less pirated). What i look forward to is playing gamecube games on my 3ds however.

    No problem, I probably won't have as many updates at least until next week.
    Good luck bud.

    While Gamecube games on the 3DS would be amazing, I'm pretty sure you'd have better luck shelling out a grand to have a portable gamecube made for you...

    It's to PREVENT you from saying they weren't legit.

    Oh, and that makes so much more sense.

    Since the point of my post went way over your head, I'll simplify. No one expects N64 emulation to work well on a 3DS, so Gamecube emulation is likely out of the question. Therefore, your best bet is either play it on a Gamecube (or Wii U, if it ever happens), or if you prefer it to be portable, then get a custom portable GC.

    Why the heck would you think you could play a gamecube game on a 3ds? I mean, unless it was turned into a 3DS game, then that would be impossible.

    Oh sorry, sarcasm, please ignore

    When you say sign a Save do you mean the ROM data?

    No, the save data.
    AFAIK, the Roms and Saves are usually separate.

    Though I'm not 100% sure about how that works on the 3DS.

    Then how would signing save data let us run Homebrew and stuff?
