When I was eating dinner, I started thinking about how everyone is trying to find the Private Key that would allow people to play homebrew on the Nintendo 3DS. Well, you may think that this theory sounds crazy, but it could be why it was impossible. When people are trying to find the private key, they are looking for specific values. They think that it will just be one huge value of certain number, letters, ect. But, what if they are embedded within a huge key. Take this for example: XFADS92435K834523KDSA23253 - Not real You may think(if it was real), that this was the private key. Now, it may just seem impossible that it would work, but look within the code: XFADS92435K834523KDSA23253 Maybe the Private key relies on a pattern. For example, if a game had the value of: XFADG56435K0DF523KLO12325I It may not seem the same, but the Nintendo 3DS would still accept it because they had these values and in the correct order. Well, if this theory was true, I would have a solution. What could be done is get 5-10 ROMs(games made by other companys) and examine the code. Now, from here, comparing all the values, you could see which one is most commonly used. Using these values, you could put them together, and walla. The private key. Now, if you want to test this, I guess you can, but I can't since I don't have the proper equipment to do so. Tell me what you think. If this is in the wrong section, I am sorry.
