    Flashcarts are available to a degree on the 3DS dependant upon the firmware you have upgraded to , which allows DS hacks , (as it was on the DS), none of which allow anyone to code homebrew in the 3DS mode. Hacking of the 3DS refers to the 3DS mode.

    Thank you for explaining that makes sense.

    Flash carts only have access to the power of a DS, they don't have access to the 3DS's upgraded power and hardware.

    For examples if flash carts could run in 3DS mode, they could play SNES games way better at a proper resolution without downscaling.

    Says the grammar police of the world.

    Well for one thing, you said "isea", which is not "idea".

    You also missed half a dozen commas, a full stop and a capital letter. Also popcorn is one word. In addition to all this, your post contributed absolutely nothing to the thread (as have all of those following it, up to and including this one). Finally, that is not an idea for hacking the 3DS. That is a statement of your intent to do nothing.

    Isn't a half a dozen just six right? I know that bakers dozen is like 11 or something but I couldn't remember half a dozen. Either way 6 commas is a lot to screw up on, thats bogus i agree. How the hell does the public expect us to hack the 3DS if we can't even use commas?

    1. Half a dozen is 6. (Because a dozen is 12).
    2. A "baker's dozen" is 13, one extra in case one gets burnt.
    3. "Half a dozen" is a colloquialism; I didn't count exactly how many commas were missing, it probably wasn't exactly 6.
    4. "...expect us to...if we can't..." - what part have you played in hacking the 3DS? I don't think anyone expects such a thing from this collective you seem to be a part of, whoever they are.

    Funny thing is, nobody criticises people who actually contribute to the thread, no matter how bad the grammar is. Only those who post a useless comment (which usually, not always, has bad spelling and/or grammar) get bashed.

    I could point out your flaws. Instead I'll leave you with this passive aggressive comment. See above.

    I'd say, hacking it should be the similar hacking to the Wii.

    Not a technical genius, but I want a franking cheat engine, and ain't seen this mentioned


    Could we not couple code with a signature to trick the system into thinking its using legit software?

    Something along the lines of those old unofficial NES games that made you plug an official cartridge in

    Then the 3DS boots up your Zelda game, once authentication goes though the homebrew code takes over? Atleast to install a custom firmware?


    Just an idea

    The security on the 3DS is a lot more advanced than a NES, or indeed most older consoles. Any techniques used in the past won't work on the 3DS, security has advanced since then, and companies have learnt from their past vulnerabilities. New approaches must be used.

    I remember an article ages ago saying how Ninty had to learn not only from their own mistakes but also from Sony's failures to rebuild the security of the 3DS and make sure it doesn't suffer the same fate as the DS. From everything I've heard, it sounds like they've finally taken security seriously.

    Which is why only the serious hackers are left to try and crack it. Nine of these Geohotz shenanigans.

    this is an idea but what about creating an dns server for the eshop were it allows users to download the ambassador certificate na deshop will sign it to the 3ds nad then download all the ambassador games?
