    If they show a pic of the same thing with the "3D" light lit right beside the slider on the top screen. Then I will know its the real deal :)

    That would mean 3DS mode would need to be enabled. That means it would need to be hacked. I highly doubt that will happen. I mean, look at the DSi, DSi mode (The camera) never got hacked(If it did, it took a really long time) but it was still able to play backups + homebrew.

    DSi is able to run homebrew from the home screen without a flash card? or does it need a flashcard to run the homebrew?

    Check the SudokuHax for the DSi and you'll see. http://hackmii.com/2011/01/sudokuhax-release/

    It was available only for a short time and isn't usable on newer firmwares. It was able to load a few homebrew programs, but as the amount of people running the hack was small, nothing too big ever came out of it.

    I see, and that post is also made by yellows8. Perhaps he/she will be making another post soon of the 3ds exploit. But if 3DS mode could be enabled that would be #Epic!

    I just hope this isn't a 3ds ware exploit because if it is you can bet Nintendo will pull the game so fast it will make your head spin. Also a game save exploit is a far cry from hacking a console. The 3ds is not hacked

    Ok, sorry ! :bow:
    With 153.69 million sold it's not too shabby either, and it's still selling you know....

    The point is , for such a platform which might be arguably considered the " easiest to heck of all times " ( you just need a $5 flashcart ), it sold mighty fine, totally trashing every possible arguments about piracy killing devices sales or developers support.

    What's that? I think I hear the Twilight Hack calling... it may not exactly be "hacking", but it's how the good stuff starts.

    I myself think this is fantastic news.

    Part of the reason it sold that well could be accounted for the hackability just as well. It all comes down to how many games a console sold can sell. In other words, how many games are sold vs amount of consoles sold :)

    It's a retail game. Nintendo can't pull that one out, there's probably million of copies out in the wild. But I wonder which one... :unsure:

    I have no fucking idea.
    all i want is a region hack, then i'd buy Inazuma Eleven GO Shine/Dark, Chrono Stone Neppu/Raimei and 1.2.3 Endou Mamoru Densetsu.

    I has to be a game that require SD to save game. MK7 retail for example, use no SD to save game (correct if I'm wrong). So it cant be it.

    OR

    it is a retail game that do not save on SD, but they used save game extractor tools.

    This hack works by patching the text displayed in an error, and then triggering an error. There's some function "errdisp" or something like that which is run when there is an error, and it turns off the 3D light and prints the relevant text to the screen (amongst other things, I'm sure). This hack patches the text it displays. The function hasn't been investigated enough to figure out where the 3D light gets turned off, or else yellows8 might be able to patch that part of the function or whatever so the light would stay on. As it is, that can't happen. So it's not by choice that the light is out, it's just a by-product of the method used.

    Or, if you possessed the ability to read, you'd see that he's referring to the fact that the photo says "we hacked it."

    You're absolutely right.
    Anyway, the only reason I'm posting this is to welcome you to the forums. We're getting a bunch of new members because of the possible 3DS hacking news.
    I suggest you post an introduction. Again, welcome to the forums.
