    Arm10 is the chip that handles the internal calculations of the 3DS. It's basically the brain of the system. Earlier today, I was playing Smash 4, and my opponent was at 996%. However, Smash does not show the decimal percent your opponent is at, so it builds up and the console goes along. However, the game was not normally meant for a stock to survive over 900%. Fox's laser does 1.2%. Eventually my opponent reached the exploitable percent, where the shown percent is 998% but in reality is actually 998.8%. Smash usually doesn't go above 999% but this trick causes the arm10 processor to halt and seek instruction from the game, as you achieve 1000% without the game knowing. Since Fox's laser does exactly 1.2%.
    This exploit can be used to write executable code where the game freezes, potentially loading a homebrew launcher
    Arm10 userland is more or less the same arm10 kernel, so we could easily gain access to other CPUs' kernel modes. This means illegit CIA installing on any firmware Smash runs on. Sorry 4.5 fanboys.
    What do you think this exploit could potentially be used for? The arm10 processor is used very early, around the same time arm9 is initialized. Along with Arm9Loaderhax, a great combo could see potential.

    Excuse the water, the motherboard got a little dirty and I had to rinse it off. The arm10 is the smaller black chip you see.

    I can assure you this is real researched facts. After pondering after installing bootromhax2, I decided to Smash.
    I will show you an alternate way on how to do it. Go to Training, and pick Mario.
    Go to Battlefield Omega, and spawn a Smash Ball. Slow Time to 1/4th mode (hold l if comfortable), and AS SOON AS Mario launches the Smash Ball, press reset on the screen. the game will freeze, and the exploit is active. I have money on this being real. Try it yourself.

    There is no "ARM10" processor in the 3DS.

    To be completely honest the game does freeze when doing the above with Mario. If you wanted a nice glitch.

    The ARM10 arithmetics also handle the radius of 3D meshes and spheres, meaning... GIANT BOOB MODS FOR EVERY GAME. You got my support, gonna look into coding this ASAP.

    Seriously, the only reason why I tolerate threads like this is because they're still better than threads created by those who don't search properly / want piracy fast / want freehax fast. Marginally.
