    Introducing:
    FSHax
    [​IMG]

    A fairly simple patch that allows anything to access the entire Filesystem (as far as I know).

    What does this mean for the everyday user? All games can access the SD card! You can store all of your mods on the SD card and use SDCafiine to load them!

    Need some proof?

    Video deleted, got a random strike, deleted a bunch just in case. :-/

    How do I use this?
    You either need to get your favorite CFW to add the patch to the FS module or patch it in yourself, it is an eight byte patch or two instructions. I was able to put it into IOSUHax in a few minutes.

    Give me the patch already!
    Here you go:​
    Code:
    ; Enable everything access to the entire filesystem
    .org 0x107043E4
        MOV R2, #0xFFFFFFFF
        MOV R3, #0xFFFFFFFF
    
    How about a repo?
    Why not?
    (Lies about REDNAND, uses SYSNAND)

    IPS patch?
    Sure, here you go.
    (Lies about REDNAND, uses SYSNAND)​

    I want to give you money!
    Aww, thanks!

    Does this deserve a name/logo?
    No, but I wanted to make one so I did. I find it oddly satisfying to make these. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯​

    Yes. (if you use the cbhc internal cfw. If you use mocha (for rednand) then @dimok will have to add it to mocha)

    you see, there is a reason we do have a separate node for root file access; giving everything permission to everything is rather dangerous, there is a reason after all why permissions are a thing, fucking up and bricking with a patch like this is easier than ever since you could just do it from anywhere.

    I did not and I also dont want to learn about one. Oh and for sd access by the way, cant you just use libiosuhax to globally mount the sd card to a name of choice and then freely use it in every app?

    Sorry if this is a noob question, but how exactly do I put in the patch? I just got Mocha today.

    Gambia, The
    But with libiosuhax you don't have the nintendo API => have to rewrote the sd cafiine patches completly.

    I didn't check yet what this patch does, but I would just look for the part where the cos.xml is parsed, and patch the flag with give an app sd access.

    Model swaps still aren't a thing but people are moving objects around and basic stuff like that
