    Long-time GBAtemp member and store owner OzModChips recently tweeted a picture that got our community excited: a powered-on Nintendo 3DS console displaying a message - "WE HACKED IT!". The information has been confirmed by various sceners among which crediar. You may notice that the 3DS top screen is fully lit which confirms that this isn't just some NDS homebrew. The author of this hack is reportedly the well-known scener yellows8; he also stated that the hack was possible through a game save exploit (he did not mention which game though).

    So, what do you think? Are we going to be getting 3DS homebrew anytime soon? Here at GBAtemp, we sure hope so. We'll keep you informed!

    So I see. It's been officially confirmed! XD I wonder if an exploit will be released anytime soon. Probably not but who knows? :)

    I'm mainly after getting rid of region locks. It's been the biggest constraint with my 3DS as European users have limited amount of options in choice of games in comparison to that of American gamers.
    I'm looking forward to the possible homebrew though. There was a bunch that I had on my R4, some nifty little games and whatnot.

    Well it's been confirmed to be sourced from a reputable source. This could go either way. Costello's just putting the word out.

    I'm hopeful though, and Costello should link to the other thread so people can see the images and other information.

    some people said it was real, but WE are not in a position to confirm it.
    which is why I posted the thread as a question - "has it been hacked?"
    time will tell...

    3DS is a great console to own; hacked or not.

    Making it region free and homebrew? I'm all for it. Backup loading? Please no.

    It's difficult to do so at the current point in time as they don't actually know the method used. Plus if it does get patched, it'll just be an update and you don't have to download it. Sure, you lose access to play online but that's not a major feature in most 3DS games.

    Wow, I'm just excited the cause still has a heartbeat. Cheers to those folks hard at work on this.

    No you lose access to the E-Shop, not to play online games.

    Back when I didn't have my 3DS updated, it disallowed me to play Mario Kart online as I had to update the system.
    (A long while back, may have changed since then)

    I can still play KI:u even though my 3DS isn't updated. That goes the same with MK7.

    at this point i'm interested in 3d homebrew, a 3d port of ds doom, and a virtual boy emulator. even if this is real, it will be a long time before we see any homebrew, a development library for 3d, etc.

    Maybe Gbatemp will become exciting again.

    Maybe get a 3DS scene release area ready on the front page. ;)

    Until someone else gets a handle on this and can repeat said hacking, this isn't real. I want to see multiple Tempers being able to repeat the "process".
     
  20. Oh no.

    Do you hear that?

    It's the sound of 100+ pages of arguing approaching.

    Brace for impact!

    (And, as for my personal opinion on the news, this is fantastic. The DS survived and flourished regardless of widespread flashcard use, and the 3DS will do the same. This is nothing but a good thing for the people who aren't buying games anyway.)
