I've been working on this for the past day and it should be done by the end of the week (no promises). It basically uses a .3ds/.bin file and patches the template with your private header. I just figured out how to output byte streams as readable hex, so I should be able to implement the actual patching relatively quickly.

Here's what it looks like as of now:

Nice have to try this out when you release it :), thanks for the effort to make life easier :)

"no ban no sky" is easy to use on single files (dunno if it changes the chip id to match the filesize)
it's also easy to use different headers on different rom entries in the template.

Q: Would it be possible to add in the future an option to modify the template for 1 game instead of the whole template?
Optional field, 3DS rom and browse to the rom you want to play online and it modifies just that entry in the template

Nice. But how do you retrieve the CTR without asking a "receiver rom" too ?

About header information, I'm wondering if it's not just useless since we can't make own templates entries (missing Unique ID still unkown) and since Sky3DS already provides Chip infos for every game.
Don't you think too ?

    but its a custom os for both of them

    designed for only specific hardware

    so you have to learn to emulate that specific hardware which isn't as easy as you'd think

    It's a locked down Linux distro basically
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think the only custom hardware is to do with the SSD and a security chip
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Probably combined in one chip

    They place married security chips onto boards iirc
