what does it do? [only vote if you're on 4.2]

  1. It just freezes.

    I can't get enough of a sample size on IRC, maybe gbatemp can help. This version is for 4.2 only, any region. I'm have absolutely no idea how consistently it will work, but I'd appreciate if you'd test it whether or not you already have homebrew.

    For this version, instead of Data Management, you must use the SD menu.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Now posted on http://bannerbomb.qoid.us

    Haha, so they kept it from working from Data Management but neglected to secure the SD Menu? Good ol' Nintendo...

    Actually, they didn't even try to fix the actual exploit. The only change was that the size of banners in saved channels is now limited to 100 kilobytes. After several months, that's their "fix". Still, it means that the 400kish nop sled in bannerbomb can't fit anymore; I think the SD menu is somewhat more reliable than data management with respect to memory addresses, but not sure yet.

    Good to see this is coming along. I can't test as I'm not going to update right now.
    But good luck!

    Worked for me on 4.1u. If I really have to I suppose I could update to 4.2 to test again and do a NAND restore afterwards.
