Is gameshark style hacking possible using Spider to inject cheat codes?

    I don't know why I didn't think of this before, but if we can inject data into RAM using the web browser, wouldn't that make it pretty easy to implement something like a gameshark website that can inject codes into the games we play? Infinite health in pokemon... maximum bells in Animal Crossing... Infinite Bullet Bills in Mario Kart... You know what I mean?

    I would be so down for that. I just got Powersaves the other day and it's slow as hell. :x

    Also, unlike Gameshark, where you need to inject everything at the game's startup, you can easily go back to the browser and make changes on the fly if the webpage was interactive. Heck, even if the webpage wasn't, if you ran an android app that did a hotspot/webserver thing like how people have done with Gateway's Exploit, then you could perhaps make changes in the app, then refresh the page on your 3DS to get the updated code injected.

    Run around the grass in pokemon, catch the pokemon you want, and then just hit up the web browser and change the code to another rare pokemon, and go right back at it, no saving or rebooting required.

    On-the-fly memory editing is already available for 4.x systems via NTR-CFW and on higher system versions via spider3DStools. But neither are particularly noob friendly.

    Applying codes via patching a game at start up are already available features of (once again) the publicly available NTR-CFW, as well as MatthewE and GovanifY's private CFWs. So it's definitely a possibility once we have a free CFW (like KARL3DS) available.

    It's actually something that would already be available if someone had the time, skill and motivation to finish Yifan Lu's 80% complete SpiderNinja.

    You seem to think I'm talking about the CFW GovanifY leaked. I am not.

    As I stated clearly, I'm talking about GovanifY's personal CFW. While I'm providing links here's one outlining the features of MathewE's 9.4 CFW.

    so only the chosen few (who holds ninja cubic) can use the patches unlike the pokemon xy and oras pokemon patch who only use the qr scan and
    browser exploit

    This would be an amazing thing to have, I can see a giant cheat system something like the PSP had being developed

    Fuck me. I don't think I could be anymore clearer.

    But here we go one last time, if you still struggle to understand what I've said, I'm afraid you're on your own.

    They won't, but it's on the todo list for number of the developers working on the KARL3DS project.

    In fact I think it's been confirmed as having already being implemented.
