    Why'd they pull it? It's a pretty mediocre game, but there's far worse crap that sits comfortably on the eShop.

    Ah, that makes sense. I haven't had much reason to keep up with that stuff, so I haven't. Hopefully it'll be reposted when fixed and people can redeem their keys then.

    Does anyone else think it ironic that there's a banner ad for the official Nintendo UK store on this very thread?

    Apparently Humble Bundle codes still work even though they pulled it from the eshop. While I can't confirm that, I can confirm that ciangel or dtk work just fine to download it.

    Nintendo never pulls their own apps down. Always 3rd party.

    The only exception I can think of is youtube.
    Too big to piss off I guess. Wouldn't want Google taking their time pulling down infringing Lets Play videos. :P

    it would be pretty bad that they pulled out a game that you bought on a bundle...

    isn't it also a secondary entrypoint? so the only people that can use it for hax is the ones that already have hax in some other shape or form... why even bother pulling it lol

    Between insane and insecure
    This is actually not the first time they've pulled an exploitable game from the eShop before. So this is no shocker to anyone.

    Nintendo is going about this all wrong. Trying to patch one vulnerability at a time will be completely ineffective as there are so many others we can use to circumvent whatever was patched in the update. Nintendo's only hope if they really want to block homebrew, downgrading, CFW etc is to patch all of the known vulnerabilities and entrypoints in a single update. And even then I don't think it would be very effective thanks to A9LH which is, as far as I can tell, pretty much bulletproof.

    Is it? Smea says it and CN were both patched on unexploited systems. He says he should be able to work around it, but at the moment they are patched AFAIK.
