Can you use badges via Homebrew if you've never used Badge Arcade?

    I'm on 10.1, and since eShop spoofing is broken, I cannot download badge arcade. Do you need to be on the latest firmware, and have to have played badge arcade atleast once to use custom badges?

    You don't need to be on the latest firmware, but you do need to open and play the Badge Arcade at least once.

    The only possible way to get badge arcade is to be on the latest firmware. Nintendo sent out Badge Center right after they patched the eshop spoofing :(

    What entry points do you have available?


    If you have Ironfall (1.0 or 1.1), cubic ninja, or LoZOOt then you should update to 10.3 BUT MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE THE PAYLOAD FIRST!!!


    If you are using theme/menuhax DO NOT UPDATE

    Also, as a safety precaution, get themehax before updating, just in case something goes wrong.

    The only thing stopping us from this being possible afaik is knowing the hex ID of your NNID. it's the 4-byte value at 0x1C in "BadgeMngFile.dat". I'm not sure if this 4-byte value can be found in other ways with homebrew

    Edit: I think I just found it... 0x2ED2C in the home menu layout save! going to test now

    It seems the value only appears there aswell if a layout with badges was saved, and that would require running the badge arcade...
