    If you use the amiibo NFC Reader in Nintendo 3DS (or New Nintendo 3DS his NFC Point) by simply reading the data, you can access to the kernel of the console.

    In other words: The NFC port of the console have kernel permissions, because is registering your data in the amiibo. So if we open an simulated NFC port that can open the kernel... We'll have access to kernel version 9.5 to 10.1.

    To try, nothing happens. This is my idea. (Sorry for my English, I hope you can understand it)

    Your English is very good. Your logic is not.

    "To try, nothing happens." -- that's the only thing you said that's correct.

    You watched too much stargate buddy :D

    What you say makes no sense at all.

    This is something I tested way back when like when 9.2 came out... In short you don't get what is needed, trust me, yellows8 even looked into it ;) he mapped a few of the offsets it uses but most of it's still unknown.

    That's the problem. The most it's unknow but... who tells us that the solution is not inside the unknown?

    This is type of post that ends up in people signatures to live in eternal infamy. :lol:

    You could program an downgrade and run it from the NFC port.
    They're ideas. Rather than sit idly or complaining... ;)

    It seems like someone creates, essentially, this same thread every month or so.

    It's my idea. I've too much more.
    I want to collaborate in the scene. I not have blame that each month make the same post, you know?

    There's a few different threads asking essentially the same thing. It's a horse that been beaten, then thoroughly checked for viability, then beaten again.

    There's no need to be alienating. He was simply curious, and while neglecting the forums' search function, asked his question. He got his answer and he knows it's been asked and explored before. Let's just leave it at that.

    Thank you for the Signature, I had some problems trying to find a good signature, and after some thought, i decided that what you said will be on my sig, thanks.

    Ontopic: Now look, the problem of what you're saying is that the ports where the amiibo looks works in a entire different thing than your common 3DS vulnerability, to begin with, amiibos stores only a fraction of information from a external way, therefore, making this quite a problem to deduce, because as i said, amiibos works in a different way than a 3DS or a Wii U, the amount of information stored from an amiibo is temporal, so trying to find an exploit inside from an amiibo would take quite some time, and when someone actually manages to do find it, somebody else would probably had a better idea to hack a 3DS post 9.2.

    When you're hacking something, you don't think in "What If" with things that may not provide a stable answer to the 3DS hacking, you do the "What If?" with the 3DS itself, because that's the console we need full control of it, the amiibos later, if we were working with amiibos first, we would take far more time than trying to find any other vulnerability on the 3DS, i don't think your idea is bad, honestly, but the amount of information an amiibo can provide (Their DLC) is unstable, temporal, and not workable for these kind of things.

    I highly doubt that this could do anything, I am sure that almost all of the data is parsed by the calling application and all the kernel library would do is access the hardware.
