    I think logically it should be allowed, because there's no copyrighted content in it, only content self-generated by users using homebrew. But I'm not staff though.

    We do not allow sharing of keys beyond those that are tied to a given console (if you wanted to share your unique NAND key, your device specific keys for saving...), and as sharing those will tend to net you an online ban for most device makers with a clue (so probably not Nintendo) then those are discouraged as well. It is the err on the side of caution/the only ones to win are the lawyers approach.

    Similarly they might not directly be a ROM but it is close enough that it is not going to happen, maybe if the keys were not the same length as the message something could be discussed. To that end your signature raise be cause for a raised eyebrow.

    It sucks because I can not begin to think how many hackers just grabbed a ROM to fire through ndstool back on the DS to help out someone with a question, thems the breaks though.
