    This is awesome! :yay: Welcome to the birth of the 3DS scene. You knowing, barring this being complete bull**** as some people are already claiming :P

    EDIT: Also I know the 3DS Hacking forum here already has a topic on this, but my news is in light of his post today and the subsequent mediafire link, also, for the record, the jury is still out in that thread too so as far as I, and others, are concerned its news to me!


    Edit by a moderator for clarification:
    Remember that it is NOT a hack, and it is NOT an exploit. It's a program to "assemble" multiple files and informations into a single CXI file.
    I'm adding this quote from SifJar to explain what this program is doing.

    Nice haha! Seriously, this may not even be true but considering the response Crown3DS got for throwing up a simple HTML page with zero proof, we can expect plenty of "Is X game out?" "Does this play N64/GC/PS3/XBOX/etc roms?"

    Seems pretty interesting, but I didn't really understand how it works and what it'll do... Guess I can blame my tiredness for that.

    Yes! I'm playing my downloaded copy of Street Fighter right now!!! JK...............

    Good news if it actually works. Good to see some progress, but at the same time I don't want the 3DS to be hacked yet.

    Even when it is capable of running downloaded retail games, it won't be as easy as it is on the DS right now.

    It appears to me, that if this works, it is proof of a homebrew application running in 3DS mode. I really don't understand the exact purpose of this app, but if it runs in 3DS mode than that implies other homebrew can be made which also runs in 3DS mode, and homebrew running in 3DS mode would open the gate to emulators, awesome homebrew apps, and loaders!

    Someone should test it here to be certain, if it's fake then we'll lock this topic.

    Absolutely nothing. It is a CXI (think NDS file, but for 3DS) that has been custom built, but there is NO WAY TO RUN IT (that's really important) and even the developer who made it hasn't run it, because they can't. They just "think" it's a proper CXI, and it seems their justification for that is that programs from the homebrew community for dealing with CXI files work with this file.

    IF someone had the right key, they could sign it for running it on a console. But I'm pretty sure there is still no way to just load a CXI. You'd need to have it on a game card somehow. It's not like on PSP where the system has the built in capability to load PBPs from the memory card.

    So in short, no one should care about this in the slightest.

    EDIT: About the deletion notice: It was put there by trap15, otherwise known as squidman, a contributor in the Wii scene and a fairly reputable one at that. (He worked on Benzin amongst other things). If he says it's rubbish, I'd be inclined to believe him.

    @heartgold:
    No one can test it because there is no way to load a CXI on a retail 3DS and even if there was no one has the keys to sign with.

    This is from the 3DS Hacking and Homebrew thread:

    So if we can get some more independent confirmations that programs like 3DSExplorer and the such verify the integrity of the files then we can really know.
    If the files are fake thats certainly the nail in the coffin regarding this, but even if they do open correctly that doesn't necessarily mean they are correct/work.

    Also like I said before, anyone can ask for removal of a wiki page, with or without proof/the truth.

    "Cannot be proven true or false until evidence is available". This situation is like holding a sandwich and saying "it's delicious!" knowing that the rest of the scene can't have a bite. In fact, he hasn't tried it yet either! He just assumes it's tasty because he added tasty stuff to it, still it could turn out to be a bad combination.

    We need a loader, then we'll talk.
