    "Would it be possible to hack the 3DS by having it receive DS download data from a flash cart to exploit it?"
    This question is mainly for curiosity. But don't you think we could get some sort of exploit/hack from the 3DS, by making an exploit where the 3DS would recognize the file as a DS game, but it really would (somehow) exploit it? I know nothing of how exploits/hacks work, so correct me if I'm wrong...

    Why would anyone want an exploit for an exploit?

    Exploits could be found anywhere in the software. It's a matter to find one THEN THE POSSIBILITY to use it.

    I think there's a more viable road to walk than this one. To my understanding, the Wii can communicate with the 3DS (and also DS). Now what I was thinking is wouldn't it be possible to write an app through Wii homebrew (I have no clue if they can even address the DS or 3DS) which emulates the wii plaza or something so you can see what happens when a Mii get's dumped or perhaps get it to connect through the Wii and send executeable data back to the 3DS. Perhaps send a corrupted Mii file from the Wii to your 3DS which can refer to an executeable. I'm just guessing here, but in theory it sounds cool [​IMG]

    That sounds kinda valid. But be careful. I know that Miis with Gold pants cannot be sent to a 3DS.

    Heh, that actually does sound better... we should find a way to do that. I'm being serious, that really sounds like a good idea. But, the question is: How?...

    That's a good idea, we use a hacked wii to connect to a 3ds and send it modified code.

    Sounds like a decent idea to me....

    Now we just need to wait for a Wii/3DS transfering game to come out. I don't think one's even been announced yet.

    The Mii channels can connect to send your wii miis to your 3ds.

    Probably won't need one... Just have to wait for Nintendo to give us that possibility through the system itself. Game or not, who knows. It's up in the air right now.

    Hacking the 3DS through DS download play isn't possible. Data being transferred is signed (RSA-1024). The firmware checks the signatures of the binaries it receives, and freezes on a Nintendo logo if they are wrong.

    all regular channels have been blocked if u ask me. its only thru a game that a big hack can be made and that will take some time until the 3ds is well understood.
