I saw an article some time back about using your computer as a proxy to re-watch nintendo video files.
If someone could figure out how spotpass is done with Kid Icarus Uprising, you could theoretically spoof nintendo and send yourself a customized weapon gem.

The only way I can see this happening is if somebody used their computer as a proxy and logged all packets going to and from the 3ds. IF they are smart enough, they may be able to figure out how it works, and then send some data of their own.

This could even (possibly) become an exploit in which to softmod the 3ds, though that is incredibly unlikely.


Please share your thoughts, unless they are flame.

No. It's not as easy as "Analyze, change, send". IIRC, the data sent via sportpass is encrypted, and unless a Nintendo employee who knows the keys comes out and gives them to us, the chances of us finding them ourselves is next to none.

Right section. Can't be done.

Spotpass as all communication with the 3ds uses encryption, more precisely AES-CTR. The CTR (Initial counter) is inside the header of the spotpass packet.
Meaning you need a special key to decrypt it.

Would it be possible to replicate spotpass data then? of course we can't decifer it, but if we can get the packets we can just resend them to the 3ds (once a day) for extra spot passes, correct?

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
