    I see. I'm new to the 3ds scene (I've been patiently waiting to jump in as I never had a 4.5 firmware 3ds :( lol) but I was very active in Wii homebrew. So does it work the same for 3ds as in CIA's being the same as CFW's for the Wii?

    Assuming a CIA is the same as a CFW for Wii?

    no a CIA is more like a .WAD file on the wii is, you can install roms eshop or retail and other stuff to the home menu the file used to install it is a CIA ,but it only works on 4.5 still, maybe after GW releases their new update it will be possible on 9.x , or maybe ssspwn will be used to create a way to do it in the future ,or maybe they both will end up supporting it

    O
    Ok that makes perfect sense. So in this way, hypothetically speaking, the rom installed by CIA acts as though if you downloaded it from the eShop? If so, also hypothetically speaking, wouldn't region unlocking also be necessary (at least here in the US) as I hear only the Japanese version works for Smealums exploit?

    Found CubicNinja and my spare, both new in package, now I wait. I assisted with releasing wiiloader back in the day, wish I was still keeping up with the scenes.

    well, pretty useless. i don't think you can get any more obscure than "cubic ninja".

    i have literally never seen it anywhere since the 3DS came out. and i always have an eye out for interesting 3DS games, i frequent 3 different walmats, 1 target, and 4 gamestops, and i have never heard of the title until today. maybe its an American only release.

    I hope Smea will provide the links soon, cause since the name of the game was revealed to the public, Nintendo has had a lot of time to look into it and as I said in a previous post, if you look at the Vita hacking scene with the exploits based on saves, you should know that this kind of exploits can be easily patched by Sony and Nintendo with a simple update of the firmware, especially the exploits revealed to the public.

    I guess tomorrow or soon, Nintendo is going to update the firmware, our 3DS will be more "stable".

    I'm confused by this part:

    Did the developers of Cubic Ninja intentionally make it vulnerable or something? And what does "so long as it belongs to smealum" mean?

    They were trying to avoid such vulnerabilities, but actually an exploitale flaw in their code exist.

    It means smealum doesn't condone piracy, and as long as he's the one making the software, it's not going to enable 'backups'. I tend to doubt they made their software vulnerable on purpose but who knows. Apparently the company that developed it doesn't exist anymore.

    Well yeah I know that, but that seems to imply he could have made it load backups if he wanted to. If that's the case, once the exploit is public, it's only a matter of time in which someone creates another homebrew loader that uses the same exploit, but does load backups, right?

    People really want to discredit his work, don't they? Not to mention, people only want ROM loading just out of spite. Want ROMs? Use a freaking Gateway.
