When compared, which is best?
Errmmm... Arm9LoaderHax is for 3DS, whereas IOSU is for Wii U.
You have the complete wrong end of the stick there, my friend...
a9lh possibly because its a hardware relient hack. iosu is an exploit in the software that can be patched afaik.
I know !
But if we compare the two hack, which is the best ?
well since they are for 2 different systems you cant really compare them
Well I like arm9loaderhax, but then I also like IOSU. But which is better? There's only one way to find out:
Logically, arm9loaderhax is the best because is a hax on the SysNAND.
Because the IOSU hack is a RedNAND hack, am I right ?
again we cant really compare them. For one because there is no IOSU exploit out yet
A9lh is dependent on the user's unique Otp. iosu is universal and can be patched in an update afaik. so a9lh is more secure but im not sure about iosu
It's best to compare arm9 kernel with IOSU kernel.
They both allow full access to the system... but what baffles me is why a vanilla 3DS on 11.1 only has userland home brew but the latest Wii U version has a kernel exploit to allow cheating and pirating...
arm9loaderhax is also software, it's just extremely difficult, if not impossible, to patch once installed (you can patch installing it though)
The closest thing to a hardware hack would be a bootrom exploit.
Both the iosu and a9lh is trash. #BootromMasterRace
It's worth considering 3DS is actually profitable for Nintendo and therefore merits them putting actual effort into preventing piracy, while the Wii U wasn't generating any revenue in the first place
Adding on to my previous message: IOSU exploit is like arm9exploit where it can be patched with firmware update (like MSET exploit or 9.2) but if the devs find a IOSUloaderhax in Wii U, then you can compare the hacks
isnt the otp from the hardware?
Sort of, but the only thing we use the OTP for is encrypting the keystore.
ah i see
A9LH is better, because it actually exists
IOSUHax exists, it just hasn't been publicly released.
iirc otp dumping on wii u is possible, don't know which firmwares it works on tho
