    As you can read here, a group named "TeamPiRATECLUB" say, that they found a working exploit.

    For now there are no pictures or videos, but I think they are credible as Crown3DS.

    Show us how the exploit works. Show us "Hello World", it's not much to ask.

    Then you get support.

    I love how I can glance really quick at who has liked an OP and notice that yuyuyup has liked it.

    Then I am like, "Shit thread is shit".

    It's like he is sending us a message, "Yuyuyup, You keep telling yourself that."

    xD

    Roughly: "we have contact with a Crown3DS developer".

    This means:
    A/. Crown3DS is real
    B/. This is bullshit

    EDIT: They posted they'll post a video on facebook. Now we have to wait and see.

    They say Zelda OOT doesn't work and there are framerate drops with other games (notably in SSFIV Online multiplayer). This might mean they've created a software backup loader.

    So about as credible as the completely obvious and fake project.


    By the way I have a working 3DS exploit too.
    It's pretty sweet. I mean I don't have pictures, videos, or anything but I can tell you the exploit involved a penguin, and a lot of gummy candy.
    I'm totally legit. I'll release this exploit for $10,000.

    No it doesn't. You can use any type of an extension for the file, it doesn't matter. How do you think banner bomb worked? Oversized graphics = temporary system crash due to overlapping buffors = possibility to inject code in the overlap.

    I didn't know that either. It seems pretty intersting, and It's a pretty simple and clean Idea, to run an exploit from mp3 files.

    I hope it works.

    MP3 is a very well established format and by this point the vast majority of vulnerabilities in the format are worked out. With bannerbomb, it was using a Nintendo proprietary image format, for which there are not well established libraries with plenty of bugfixes over the years, so vulnerabilities were far more likely. It is unlikely there is an exploit in an MP3 file.

    Also the stuff about Crown3DS - why would a flashcard manufacturer care about an exploit unrelated to their card? All seems like nonsense to me. But I guess you gotta give them a bit of time to provide proof and stuff.

    EDIT: Their FB page now makes mention of something to do with running ROMs. I highly doubt the authenticity of this.

    even more why should they help a group that would release the exploid for free which would prevent most user to buy the crown3ds
    @edit
    yes they now say that it can play 3ds dumps

    MP3 might have vulnerabilities in DRM or Artist/etc. data (an absurdly huge string might cause a system crash).

    EDIT: They say Crown3DS failed and they've spoken with an ex-developer.
