    Hi I was wondering if there was anything I could use to force my 3DS to think the time hasn't changed like for Luma for example if there is anything that I could use that would be great.

    Thanks.

    There was a request thread for something like this, but I don't think anyone has actually made one.
    If you have access to the Config dev unit app you can use that to change the time.

    There is a service call for setting the system time, under ptm:sets -> https://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/PTM_Services#SetSystemTime_PTM_Service_.22ptm:sets.22 , so it should be at least somewhat feasible.

    Do you want the time to stay statically in place? Or do you just want to mess around with the time and settings?

    I'm not sure what continuous calls to this function would do to games, if it were used as an NTR Plugin.

    There is no way to unset that flag manually AFAIK. If you had changed the time using config.cia it wouldn't have triggered the flag, but it's a bit late now.

    I could see this being useful for r4 cards from r4isdhc with the timebomb.You could just run the application and it will freeze at a certant date until you reset the 3ds.

    No the battery fell out I used the config CIA to change it using the init option the one the 3ds isn't supposed to see and that didn't fix it

    In any case, it shouldn't take more than 24 hours for the flag to reset on its own.
