    right here, right now
    in stead of focusing on the 3ds itself, could we not exploit one of the apps/games to get inside the 3ds and create a way to downgrade the 3ds?

    and even maybe we can get the common/private key

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    Using a DLC game/app as the point of entry for an exploit tend to have short time frames where the exploit can be used before it gets taken down and fixed. Example is the Sudoku hack on the DSi, the game was taken down once nintendo found out.

    The number of people that took advantage of that hack was pretty low.

    There is a crazy easy way to change your Nickname and birthday and favorite color on the DS Profile using a DS game.
    The issue is that is follows the rules of DS so it's not at all useful (except that your DS Profile name can be different from the 3DS profile and you can get in like 10 DS Symbols, Hirogana, and Katakana, because the DS keyboard is superior to the 3DS one).

    It's not hijack-able though.

    Smealum used Bandai-O to change some stuff. I'm guessing he did some rom hacking, but I never really looked into it (because I'm running 6.0+ and I'm a noob).

    Though editing it yourself isn't exactly easy. This post should help:

    This should get you somewhere until someone better can talk.

    I rated Pokémon Y as 5 stars, male, casual, anyone, and a young age, and it submitted it. I exited, it blinked for a split second corrupted graphics, then it crashed and I had to restart. Maybe...

    I'm on 6.3.0-12U. Not updating at all. (Just in case)

    isn't it possible to "hack" a game that works on 4.5 (like luigi's mansion) and make it think that the 3ds is outdated therefore make it install 4.5 ?

    Nope. The check is in the system software itself, not on the game, so even if it were possible to modify a game (spoiler: it's not), that'd be no good.

    I'm telling you, just find an autistic Kid that can see the code. Just tell them they can play free games on the thing if they do it.
    You gotta just take the thing apart and torture the hardware into giving up the code. Plug it into a North Korean computer, that would scramble its' brains so much it'd be begging you to just input your cfw.
    Take your hacking out of the software biz and into the hardware take things apart and plug in a microchip style of thought.

    Well, iv looked into it. however exactly as HarukaKaminari said ont the devkit forum: "Modifying the userdata in the firmware is difficult", after a bit more of looking into i could totaly agree. especialy as i havent worked with modifying FW before. so what i see on http://nocash.emubase.de/gbatek.htm#dsfirmwareserialflashmemory is a bunch of random char[] XD

    You were talking about somthing called "Bandai-O" What is that? A game? a tool? Google don't seems to know.


    Anyways back to coding XD

    Sonic Lost World seems kind of unstable. My 3DS crashes pretty often on the netplay.

    Silly question - is there anything that checks to verify if an individual cartridge is genuine? Is there a particular hard copy protection (unreadable sectors, etc)?

    I'm thinking back to the OLD NES days when people used CopyNES to dump carts to ROM files, and then you could copy the ROM on to a blank cartridge. Obviously this wouldn't work for homebrew, but for making and playing backups... Then there's the matter of finding blank cartridges...

    I'm a newb so this is probably crazy talk, but who knows. I figured I'd throw it out there.
