    That's a dead link
    But anyway, it would be nice if he showed us the entire 3DS for proof... But I guess I shouldn't doubt him.

    Star Wars again huh lol? Well this seems like if theres an exploit he should be able to inject code. Unless of course hes editing it in real time..... Which means that we still have nothing....


    None the less 2 days to 20 page thread inc

    Edit: lol guy with pink 3DS, or is neimod a girl!

    (I know it was prob donated or somthing :P)

    It's on an unmodified 3DS, he even says so in the description.

    My bet? He played the game on his modded 3DS, injected certain values, saved the game, placed the game in an unmodified 3DS and presto! Oh, Neimod - you troll you! :P

    Alternatively he did something godlike and actually found an exploit that gave him RAM access, but I'd put that in the realm of fairies for now.

    Ah good theory, but now you've raised everyones hopes to the max.... :P

    Edit: This seems the most reasonable, for everyone it is as tho he used his ram setup as a action replay and saved his game.... (thing is could he somehow make an exploitable save with this)

    If it is he could then sell exploited star wars game cards for 200$ ec, or sell it to a flashcart company for big $$$, I wonder which would profit more hmm....

    he is to the DSi/3ds scene as mathieulh is to the ps3 scene, lots of smoke and mirrors but no proof.

    Personally, I feel that the title of this thread should be changed. The way it is now, most people will think that "Neimod Exploit" = "Way to Play Pirated Games on 3DS", possibly leading to a flamewar over:

    1) Neimod being a troll VS. a true hacker

    and

    2) The original poster being a troll VS. idiot

    I'm not calling you in no means stupid, but people who have had their hopes ruined will PMS all over this thread, causing unnecessary arguing.

    This happened when he posted his last pic on his photostream. Somebody made a thread here titled something like "3DS Homebrew Channel" and it was instantly full of soon-to-be-disappointed noobs asking "how u instalz dis?".

    In my opinion, Neimod is both. But it's people's fault for taking every little thing he do too seriously. A better suiting title for this thread would be "Neimod's Flickr photos update" or "New photos on Neimod's Flickr". I am pretty sure if he found an exploit, he wouldn't announce the exploited game before it was necessary... It would draw Nintendo's attention and it could be patched just like the Vita's hacks.

    No matter what we do to prevent it, it is bound to happen...

    Anyways, I just noticed something...if Neimod took a photo on October 12, where does he live? Or is his camera's time wrong?

    Yeah, topic title will lead to idiocy. It's great news though. Closer and closer so it seems.
    And before the thread gets flooded, NO! U CAN'T HAS UR 3DS HAXORS NAO!
    It's still a wip unless u see a huge post on the front page of the site. I guarantee anyone that looks at the front page can't miss it when/if it happens.
    Now I'm off to check this out at length.

    doubt the time's wrong. It would something like 1990 if it was.
    I don't know how long the image was there before OP noticed it but all it means is that he's somewhere in the eastern hemisphere.
    (I'm sure there are peolpe that know more specifics than that, though.)

    EDIT : if you're looking for clues, it looks like his 3DS language was set to dutch.

    Except mathieulh sends people code and solutions that have no chance of even working wheras neimod is simply secretive. I find him genuine, just reluctant to share his findings with a wide crowd.

    It's probably just a save file hack. Either change the value in RAM on his highly modified 3DS, then save, or else use that 3DS to extract the save in decrypted form, edit it, then replace it and have the game re-encrypt it. Either that or he figured out save file decryption/encryption.
