    :wacko: wait that guy's a Pedo? but i though he was nailed for cracking security or something like that in fact the company that developed Denuvo ordered the raid/arrest iirc i think your confused with T.C. a former temper who WAS arrested for that

    I've looked and looked and I don't see any evidence this conference livestreams. It's a rather pricey door charge and I really think the organizers believe people should pay that to see the event live.

    However, there will be slides available when the talk starts (I'm certain of this), and of course, links to repos/releases when smea drops the exploits at the end of his presentation.
    Hopefully, a video of his talk will surface afterwards but it's anyone's guess if that will happen.

    They (edit: the slides) are available now... I think he hacks the 3ds over the micro-sd card sharing feature..
    I am impressed with his skills!

    Where are the slides?

    I already know about the ARM11 kernel to ARM9 escalation portion, because I independently discovered it. I found out that smea had beat me to it, and didn't interfere with him reporting it to Nintendo for the bug bounty (hence 11.8.0 update).

    He has an primary exploit for getting ARM11 user mode, an exploit to break into ARM11 kernel, then the TWL_FIRM exploit to break into the ARM9.

    I've known about this since Friday morning, lol. People were even talking about it on Discord. Its crazy that this was up even before 11.8 dropped (July 27). Oh well. So much for spoilers. Hopefully there will be some more surprises since smea has kept working on slides up until yesterday. (i'd like to know if there's a solution for old3ds user primary).
    btw - congrats on the independent twl_firm a9 discovery!

    Anyway, slides and videos (not the actual presentation) are up in the OP since the cat is out of the bag. Dig in, everybody.

    edit: Talk is in progress! Will keep OP updated if any new info.
