Somewhere among this forum, I've seen the term, "Arm9 SDK" or something like that. Does it belong to Nintendo? Is it legal to download? If so, where can I find it? I searched up Arm9 SDK and apparently nothing showed up

idk, it could have been leaked or something like that and is still around on the web and might be illegal to download. who knows
Only a 3DS engineer would have such a thing. No way any 3ds game dev would have it making it much more unreasonable that it'd be leaked if it exists.

IIRC, don't ds and dsi programs run on the arm9 processor? There's some level of protection, of course, and bringing it up is mostly pedantry, but you can run code on the arm9 processor without cfw... The restrictions make this less than useful for hacking unless you have vulnerable signed dsi code.

So basically the reason why we can currently downgrade 11.0 using DSiWareHax on Fieldrunners

Yeah. I'm not too clear on this area, but I'd expect they can patch the vulnerability in the cut-down dsi firmware that uses with a new firmware version, but then, I'd also expect them to be able to patch gspwn, but that still hasn't happened, so there might be other considerations. It could also be a case of a hardware instruction that does the desired behaviour if we can control the arguments, which would likely be unpatchable.

    Things tend to kind of get that way when people are allowed to do the same thing over and over again

    So why is it that we're not allowed to talk about somebody shooting up a school if that person happens to be trans, even when not expressing a personal opinion???

    Here's a neat trick... if you have the edit post page open,, you can edit your post, even after the thread is locked. :D
  • S @ SeniorFuego:
    And knowing is half the battle. So why aren't the people allowed to know about the school shooting that happened the other day? People sure are free to talk about every other divisive topic in the politics section. And it usually swings in favor of the anti-republican types if a thread is allowed to stay up. Funny, that...

    But not really "ha ha" funny.

    I thought you people were supposed to be against authoritarianism.

    Lmao muh rights
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Everybody already knows about it, you know that your thread was taken down for your own idiotic statement and not because of the content. Take two minutes to browse the politics forum and you'll see that the admins definitely aren't authoritarian.
