So I have Luma3DS and was wondering if I would be able to somehow get free in-app purchases in games like Pokemon Picross or Nintendo Badge Arcade. Thanks in advance.

the problem is that 3ds doesnt have a centralized way to implement in-app purchases AFAIK, which means that the solution will be per- game (unlike (old) ios which, if hacked, you can just mod the in-app-purchase "thing" and it will work on every game that uses it...)

for badge arcade, please google it. there was a solution iirc, a guy that has lots of badges just uploaded his file and you just need to download and install it and you get all his badges.... there were a few 1000's of them iirc. all that will be deleted next time you go into badge arcade, as the game checks if it was legit and deletes all of them if not.... but that shouldnt matter as re-applying this method will give you back all those badges and the game is pretty boring anyways..

as for the pokemon picross, if you have CFW follow this LINK to modify the save data to get (almost) infinite picrities!

next time, google it, it literally took me just that...

It's entirely possible but it will get you banned and remove access to those items quite fast. I highly advise if you care at all about your badge arcade access not to even try as they will ban for cheating etc and it does block the badge arcade.

that's not true unless you enter the game again after you give yourself all the badges. it checks only when you are running the game, so it wont notice you cheated if you just dont run it

Actually it only checks if you are banned when connecting to online services. Don't have to be in the app. Also worth note is that they can ban users from only select services depending on the violation. Regardless don't tell me I'm wrong when I personally have been studying the ban wave for some time. As I stated if you care about continued use of the badge arcade being banned from it does indeed break the damn thing. So what you got all the badges. You also got banned and can't use the arcade which was the fun part of earning the badges.

I meant that if you give yourself all the badges you will prob. do it when the app isnt running, and it only checks the validity of your badges when it runs to determine if it wants to do bad things to you (including ban), so you WONT get banned if you will just give yourself badges and NEVER open that app, even if you play OTHER games online or use wireless otherwise

I cheated in Badge Arcade for a while by freezing the free plays and essentially getting infinite free plays, until I heard people were getting banned for it and I stopped immediately. Luckily never got banned. It's probably safer to inject your own badges, and you can make them something that actually makes sense to use as folder icons; say, a GBA icon for GBA VC, a DSI icon for DSiWare etc. That was something I missed from badge arcade, because while the icons are neat little decorations, they're just icons of various Nintendo characters and don't really make much sense for actually labeling folders (unless you want a folder with just Mario games for example...), which is a huge missed opportunity on Nintendo's part.

Interesting thought...
As for in-app purchases, I don't know!
I RC-ed (Region Change) my 3DS, from JP to US, and the eShop's not working.

So, what did I do?
I downloaded the DLC CIAs or in-app purchase CIAs (if they exist, I don't know).

That's an Android app not 3DS homebrew :rofl2:

Off topic I use LP all the time on my phone

Same here :rofl2:
