    is it possible to use the additional memory on the n3ds? Right now the n3ds seems to have the same amount of memory using ctrulib as the o3ds.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think it's limited by the RAM allocation of the game (Cubic Ninja, Ironfall or YouTube) which can't be changed.

    With NinjHax (regardless of the way you launch it) you can use only 64MB of the RAM, whether it is on O3DS or N3DS (http://3dbrew.org/wiki/Ninjhax).

    If there's an exploitable N3DS game then that'd solve our problems. The only problem would be that Nijhax and all that stuff would have to be fixed for the extra ram.

    Disappointing, yeah. But at least we can use the extra processing power.
