    Wondering if some brave souls have tried doing this (thus making their console effectively only needing the gateway card)?

    Edit: Maybe a time better spent would be looking for the BBB release of the Ocarina of Time Demo and see if you can put that on sysnand and if it then boots the exploit.

    It has to be legit .cia

    And I don't think there is any I might be wrong but I can't find one

    Ah I see, so it needs to be a bundled .cia? Bummer.

    Your title should of been "Has anyone tried to install spider browser to the N3ds sysnand". That's a better question

    Now that I think of it... yeah it is. Lol. That would probably be a lot more sensible to overwrite.

    It would be cool though if the demo of OOT was working or something though. The OOT boot process is still internet-free which is a great perk.

    Yeah it goes well with a 80 dollar collectable 3ds game along with your 80 dollar flashcard

    im not understanding the concept here

    so what are you tryignt o do exaxtly? and why can't it be done
    here is what i am assuming

    you can buy legit cia of OOT from eshop but you cant use it because you cant switch the sav file with GW exploited sav file( i have no idea where installed cia's put their sav files, do they go on the SD, or get embedded into the installled files,i assume they would get embedded into the files somehow like card2 games)

    you cant make your own cia with GW exploited sav file added into it and re encrypt it and install it to the sysnand
    is this right
    sorry i have no idea how saves work, and especially have no idea how they work with installed games either legit of through devmen

    No the legit .cia game has to come with a system out-of-box

    CIA files save to the SD, and saves can actually be drag 'n dropped with a computer, it's just that they aren't labeled, so you'll be trial/error-ing your way through trying to replace the .sav file

    ? is it not being sold in the eShop anymore?

    Not exactly, .cias made with make_cdn_cia should work since you are using all the contents of the signed .cia (tmd, cetk, and contents), but i don't have an <5.x eshop game purchased so i can't test. Ok Sorry, this might be wrong, didn't knew that eshop tickets are console unique.

    but how can you run a cia installed through devmen in sysnand without having a GW card to patch the checks?
    i dont even think you can run installed cia's in sysnand at all unless it works in classic mode(not sure do cia installed to system and run at all? even with GW?)
    installed cia's wont run in emunand without GW card in and probably not at all in sysnand unless in GW classic mode with red card in' and how can you install a cia w/o GW inthe 1st place, you cant

    cant use CFW since you cant downgrade N3ds to 4.5

    I'm pretty sure only idiots are buying a copy of OOT that costs that much over a sky3ds that will have much more versatility

    I had the same theory, but it would only work if the hacked save can somehow be copied to the eShop download, assuming it's even compatible with that.
    But apparently, just decrypting and importing a hacked save won't work. Part of the exploit/payload will be reset, and without that part working correctly the game will just crash.

    my thougt is this would work for someone who already instaled oot from the eshop and then theyd have to use savedatafiler in .3ds format in classic mode to transfer the save.(which would require a physical copy anyway :P) but you could always sell/rent/return the physical copy when done. if this would even work.

    Was there such a thing? I mean basically if one of those LE Zelda consoles didn't come with OOT then it's /thread.

    Just to hijack this thread a little (as it's clearly run it's course) but do scene (or otherwise) dumps of those games exist that people can/have downloaded and installed to sysnand without issue? I've not read anything of that sort in the past but I don't see why it wouldn't work correctly.

    You need to read more about this. You can't just install any game to your system nand if that was true we wouldn't need a gateway. Only legit .cia games and ware can be run in sysnand without any gateway patches. By legit means signed by nintendo
