    Hi I saw this on YouTube it's a mset exploit used to boot pictochat, could this be possible to do on a new 3ds with ReiNand on 10.5 or SysNAND 9.2



    *could a mod put a question mark at the end of the thread title please

    IIRC the DS connection settings runs as a DSi app, so it's possible to inject other DSiWare titles over it, like people were doing with Sudoku to get Sudokuhax working.

    Somewhere, probably
    This is nothing new, MSET exploit is known for a long time. That's not even what the thread's about.

    If I'm not mistaken, the original MSET exploit was a buffer overflow with the profile name in DS Profile Settings. It looks like this connection settings thing is more of an injection than an exploit (although it could probably be used for DS ROMs without flashcarts at some point in the future).

    What? Did you even read the title of the thread? Go home... you're drunk.

    And like @The9thBit said, the only MSET exploit that has been both known and used widely, was the DS profile. Nothing has been done with the DS connection settings before.

    The memory available for injection is far too small for a DS ROM, sadly.

    If I recall correctly, the whole "injecting stuff into DS connection settings" is at least 5 months old. People tried to inject Sudoku for Sudokuhax, it somewhat worked. People also tried injecting Pictochat, and at first they failed (it wouldn't load). I'm glad someone got it working.

    actually it has been for a long time, it's just that noobs don't know how to do this type of hacking so they go crazy when they see hacks like this

    Watch the computer screen in the background. It seems to have changed screens when the 3DS screen goes black. Not sure if it's real.

    Guys, please read the OP. He's asking if it can be done on N3DS, not showing it can be done.
    My guess is that it might work, but I can't test it since I don't own a N3DS.

    And please do something else other than pointing out how other people can't do simple stuff that you can.

    That's not a N3DS, we can see the green 3D light at the beggining of the video.


    EDIT: Sry for my stupidity i didn't read all the OP

    Since there are two questions to be answered here:

    1. Can the MSET exploit be used on N3DS? Sure, just downgrade the MSET app to the one from 4.x, and then you can run Gateway or whatever other CFW if you're on 8.1-9.2.

    2. Can you run Sudokuhax and/or inject other DSiWare stuff over the DS Internet Communication app on N3DS too? Yes, make a backup of your sysNAND (or emu if that's where you intend on trying it from), use Decrypt9 to dump your TWL_NAND partition and use a program to mount it as a FAT16 image, then replace the proper app (I forget its title ID off the top of my head, sorry), and re-inject it into your sysNAND's (or emuNAND) TWL_NAND partition.

    Sudokuhax is handy for reinjecting the profile exploit without needing to use a flash cart.
