    Hacking Suggestion Downloading Switch updates on PC for hacking purposes

    The Switch update and authentication servers probably require a valid TLS client certificate (and matching key). If they do then off-device downloads won't be possible until the/a key is found. All Nintendo consoles dating back to the DSi/Wii have used TLS client certificates--downloads have...

    Homebrew cxitool -- convert 3dsx to cia directly

    I forked this (the whole 3dstools project, including cxitool and 3 others) on github. The release page has pre-compiled windows executables and the readme has some minimal instructions on how to compile for yourself if anyone's interested.

    Homebrew The bootroms

    Not sure if sarcasm or not, but they've never been easier to acquire. Even without going the NDA route there is sure to be a fairly active secondhand market on ASSEMblergames. Hell, there's even a debugger unit for sale on eBay. Cost will always be an issue, but from what I hear the "panda"...

    Homebrew The bootroms

    Ah, well in that case yes. It would require keys from the bootrom (or at least keys that haven't been discovered yet) to decrypt on a computer. Should also be possible to decrypt with Decrypt9 on an updated dev system.

    Homebrew The bootroms

    Yes but the fixed crypto key for system titles is on that page as well, right next to the non-system key.

    Homebrew The bootroms

    That has also been possible for some time using nothing but ctrtool/makerom, provided the dev CIA is using the "fixed" dev NCCH keys. See for yourself (ctrl+F, "dev_fixed_ncch_key"). Spoiler alert: For non-system titles it's literally just zeros.

    Homebrew The bootroms

    That should already be quite doable without any bootroms. Hell the "bigbluemenu" that everyone was using for so long is nothing but a dev "rom" with a banner and (maybe) encryption/signing swap.

    Homebrew The bootroms

    Can the bootrom of a dev unit be dumped over JTAG as @yifan_lu theorized? Would doing so be helpful? I've seen speculation that the bootrom could be the same between dev and retail.

    ROM Hack Convert 'Retail' CIA's to Debug

    Has anyone ever actually succeeded in doing this? I don't think it's quite as simple as it sounds (at least if signature checks are still enabled on the dev system).

    Hacking Unique headers for 3DZs: What about second hand cartridges?

    If you assume the worst from Nintendo, then yes. Personally, I think the very point you mention (nefarious users can make a header public and then sell the original game to an unsuspecting buyer) is why Nintendo won't take a heavy-handed stance against piracy in this manner (again). They would...

    Hacking Is it possible to run a PAL emuNAND on top of a JPN sysNAND?

    Thanks for the insights, I will look into the dev firmware stuff a bit more.

    Hacking Is it possible to run a PAL emuNAND on top of a JPN sysNAND?

    I'm wondering if it is possible to overwrite all the unique/secret/user-specific values on a PAL NAND image with those from a Japanese one and use the newly overwritten image as emuNAND on a Japenese sysNAND 3DS. Any insights would be much appreciated.
