    you mean that .xci or .nsp won't work if atmosphere 7.0 support is released?

    This is true, but there'll be new patches, you don't need to worry about that.

    Maybe, it might take time, or it might not happen

    It will happen, if one of the usual people doesn't do it straight away then someone else will figure out how to port them. It's not like them not happening at all is a realistic possibility, don't worry.

    I'm not worried, I have my ways around stuff :)

    My thing is they may not be done instantly which some people might be expecting

    that shouldn't be an issue, from my understanding layeredFS won't change as it's a static intercept so to speak, whereas the patches for "backups" are dynamic and change with each firmware

    Oof, that really activates the almonds. I don't want to dig out my legit cart from my storage space! In America we shouldn't have to get off our feet!

    Harumph!

    Nothing works until it does. So far the IPS patches have always come out before I've read the news that atmosphere is out. There is nothing to indicate this is going to change.

    The encryption keys can't be copyrighted, but they are arguably covered by DMCA/EUCD/whatever the equivalent law is called in your country.

    Those laws cover any method, including the one they used to derive the key in 6.2.0 or the one that they are going to use for 7.0

    It doesn't matter what they do, if their method circumvents a copy protection system then it's illegal.

    Atmosphere doesn't include patches that do that, so they may be able to argue their case in court. The homebrew argument didn't work on the DS flashcart court cases, because the cards also supported commercial games out of the box. They were also being sold, so there was a strong legal case for Nintendo.

    So the answer "it's illegal" is a red herring. The answer may be that they incorrectly think it's illegal, or maybe they don't want to tell you the real reason. Maybe they just like pretending that they are outwitting the legal system like some robin hood story.

    I know of a few scenes where people asking "WHERE IS MY SUPPORT?!?!" over and over again caused the developer to stop developing.

    It'll be out when it's out. Go outside or something

    True (although I'd much prefer if Atmosphere stop pumping out these patches if they want to not be associated with piracy) but my statement was more as a general warning that for people who update their Atmosphere and suddenly find their backups not working anymore that there is a good reason why that is occurring. It serves as a reminder such as when firmware 7.0 was on the verge of dropping to not update your firmware.

    The atmosphere team are not the people who tend to put out the patches.
