    not possible. nintendo checks all code before allowing it to be on the eshop. also, that is highly illegal and would result in the publisher being banned and fined a very large amount for intentionally publishing exploitable code that can cause copy write issues, be it homebrew or cfw enabling code.

    I got accepted after 48 hours of applying. Did the same with sonys vita dev portal 2 years ago before they pulled the plug on it. sdk 11.4 is pretty neat. yet japan gets sdk 11.5 >.>

    I hope this is a sign Nintendo will open up NX development for all developers with retail consoles like what MS is doing with the XBOne

    Sony where are you?

    I am officially a Nintendo Game Developer.

    So can we use all the dev tools for both 3DS and Wii U or are they encrypted? I hope someone out there is downloading all these, I would be interested in making a game if this turns out real.

    So, let me get this straight; you sign up, probably get approved (even after minimal effort), and congratulations! You now have access to the SDK! It's that easy? Also, are you obligated to periodically tell Nintendo what you're working on?

    Might I ask, what is the "yes" part, and what would be the "no" part?

    I don't think so, that you have to tell them anything.
    And yes, the signup is really fast.


    Also, FOR NEWCOMERS THAT WANT TO GRAB THE SDK, FFS, THIS IS A MULTIMILLIONAIRE COMPANY, USE TOR TO REGISTER AND DO NOT USE YOUR PERSONAL INFO!

    Alright, thanks guys! Rebooting to Windows, as it's where my Tor installation resides.

    also, don't use your main email, as that's too traceable, use rather a seconday/email created in tor

    I used my real name, real address, and personal email.

    I dont really care since I dont plan on uploading any of this material, I'm hoping this is legit so I can create something for everyone.
