    So today a twitter user released a video about a new exploit found in ORAS, and it looks really legit. This will hopefully allow us to homebrew 10.7 and 11.0 for free again (since more people are likely to own ORAS than powersaves with OOT or CN). What do you think?

    Most of them are secondary, which aren't interesting. If this really is a primary it will be really interesting.

    From what I know it's a secondary exploit, but it could still be very useful.

    This seems like a primary exploit nice.

    3DS still took a relatively long time to exploit, though. The first DS homebrew was made just 2 months after the console's release whereas it took 3 and a half years after the 3DS' release before homebrew became widely available to the everyday user. I guess the thing about building a secure system is that it's difficult to find a suitable vulnerability on which a useable exploit could be made but once that first entrypoint is found, then it's a lot more difficult to patch it and all the subsequent hacks that come from it.

    I'm going to have to call fake on this one, the screen init was weird, the hax was too quick, and the ORAS data has been mined to the end of the world already. I can't believe that he found something that everyone else who looked at it, including yellows8, didn't find.

    why do people keep quoting some guys post saying its real? that's not proof. it's just a claim. won't be proven true til its released.
