Oh so suddenly it isn't at $1300 anymore... props to whomever donated the remaining $700

Now we can look forward to a much anticipated update over at 3Dbrew.org SEM images are only a matter of time now. :yay:

July 6 Update: Yeah...no. A month later apparently they decide they now need $300 more to cover taxes.

Count me impressed. Was down $700 still last time I checked. Anyway, while we may rejoice that the target is FINALLY reached, may I remind everyone not to hold your breaths? Just a precaution. I mean, we've seen people thinking this = guaranteed hack of 3DS = free gaemz everyday + ability to cure cancer and clone unicorns :\

Either way, if the SEM images are circulating the net, that's a good thing.

I'm more excited about this than the gateway 3DS tbh

I won't be surprised if this doesn't lead to a full decapping, since IIRC they said that $2k was just a conservative estimate, and that it could be much more depending on how many layers the 3DS chip has.

Likewise.

I couldn't care less about 3DS games other then a select few.
I might as well purchase those if I see then in the used games bin.

I'm more excited of what people can come up with on homebrew!

I thought it sounded better than "It all ends now."

Besides, the 3DS decapping can now take place, therefore, something will begin.


Like disappointment to those who have gotten their hopes up so high, they thought the project would immediately bring something.

Glad I am not one of those people.

Well, in case you missed this

estimate will come to "about $2000 total". Plus the cost of the 3DS we will be donating for the hardware sample(s).

We might still have to donate a bit more for the 3DS itself.

I'm sure they can just buy a 3ds mainboard from a 3ds parts reseller for much cheaper, no need to waste a whole perfectly good 3ds, or take out the mainboard and sell the rest for parts.

I hate these "It begins" posts.
Same here. Shortly afterwards the news about 3ds gateway, someone wrote the likes of "noob incoming". I have no idea what is real and fake. But that 3ds gateway video really kept me hanging looking for abvious flaws. But i couldn't find any.
And now we finally hit the 2000 $ mark, which by the way is amazing, and we have the same morons stating this is not going any way either.
Some people....

Yeah, sure, if I were them I would just try to buy a 3ds with broken screen or something for a few bucks and use that. It still costs a bit, however they might just pay for that themselves, I mean people donated 2000$, they could just buy the 3ds mainboard themselves.
