Sorry I lost track of the hacking scene for a while (my system has been working good, so a bit lazy on reading news), time to catch-up now. If anyone is kind enough, please share your thoughts or at least point me into the right direction, thank you. 1. Is 002 error in fact a failed anti-backup checking by Nintendo? 2. Has the checking of 002 routine existed for long or just inside new IOSs used by the system through recent system updates? 3. What caused the 002 error? What had the backup launcher with 002 fix done to avoid 002 for good? 4. What stops 003 error from happening in the future? 5. Can I assume that hardmod is way better than softmod because it is theoretically undetectable (except the 001 error which has been fixed)? Unlike softmod, a simply checking for any non authenticated cIOS exist in the system will be busted. 6. Some ISOs can play after patching to use IOS249, why does it help? 7. Homebrew/backup for 3.4 is realized by installing IOS16. If a future update includes a signing bug fixed IOS16 and a 3.4 system without HBC/cIOSs installed has applied that update, is it true that no current method can help that system to run homebrew/backup?
