    Any word at all of anyone trying to make a 3ds emulator at all? I know there ISIN'T one yet, but I am wondering if anyone is actually trying.

    I'm sure if anyone were working on it, they would keep their mouth shut until they released it.

    lol...sorry.

    All 3ds understanding efforts are documented on 3dbrew.org, we are clearly ages from understanding it completely, let alone emulate it.
    Second we would need a rom to emulate (to test our emulator) and since the decrypting keys were not found, no emulator will be made.

    On a more optimistic note, 3d models, graphics and audio are pretty much the same as in the Wii and DS (just slightly different headers and slightly different structure)
    So a lot of the information is in there but the 3ds use a well organized operating system with a lot of services and system callbacks which will be needed to be emulated and
    for that there is 3dbrew!

    No. It's not even possible to begin work on one.
