Hi there !

I'm new to GbaTemp, i registred today because the 3DS hacking scene has been quite active recently. I follow this scene since the really beginning, i didn't really participate to it because of the non-activity but well it seems like it has changed :)

I got some knowledge in developping apps in html, got some knowledge too in php,c++, and a litle ASM ( from my old days writing hack for a game named MapleStory ^^ . I don't have big free time (maybe 3 Hours per Weeks ) but i do like to get solid base on Reverse engineering on the 3DS and maybe get into some project that will be opensource ( i find it better for the search, the progress in general ).

Do you have some hints to get into all this mess ?

Good Night y'all :)

Read up at 3DBrew for ideas how everything works, and for actual exploit stuff, try going through the leaked "CFW" in IDA since it's not obfuscated at all. Any reverse-engineering is really really time-consuming, though.

Ha, that's where I learned ASM too :lol:

What is this stupid advice, i don't know if you're speaking ironicaly but do you think one second i shall be spitting this with a 9.5 Upgraded 3DS :facepalm:

But Well thanks.
Stupid advice? It's logical advice. You need to study other Homebrew applications and learn C/C++ better...

For RE-ing you'll want to learn ARM ASM, how programs work and understand OS's. Read 3DBrew as well.

Yeah, 3Dbrew is your best bet to learn about the internal mechanics of the device, but return-oriented programming is a lot more difficult than most front-end programming. Unless you have a strong will, a hard-modded NAND dump, and immense amounts of time, I suggest laying back and making homebrew apps.
