    Emulators can't legally use this.

    How about the DS, was the source code ever leaked?

    Its disheartening how close this is to finally revealing the key to the 300 title limit for the 3DS without actually doing it. But this leak is only a partial leak, the one time when it's not a full leak is where it would benefit the hacking scene the most.

    Is this going to be another, "nothing to see here. Everything's that needs to be figured out has already been figured out"?

    I guess the 3DS is just about completely cracked open then, it's crazy that this is happening on the same day that 500 Gigabytes of Xbox source code and demos leaked.

    Let's hope for custom firmware to be a thing.
    Nintendo emulators should be able to profit how the system really works now.

    I can see Nintendo's army of lawyers scouring the internet looking for someone to sue.

    No, but there's also no way to know if people use the leaks as a guide while still writing their own code. Coding is more about the general "how" rather than specifics. For example someone might see how Nintendo process visual data, and figure out from that how to avoid certain graphical glitches.

    It's possible. Idk when exactly this leak happened, last 2018 FW is 6.2.0, so if there will be any software exploit, it won't probably work from 7.0.0.

    This is extremely concerning. At this point I'm going to remove all of my credit card and personal info from my Nintendo account. If something as critical as this is leaking, what are the chances they're doing a good job of protecting our data? Low, I'd say.

    Get your shit together Nintendo!

    Hope this means hackers will steal some information and make updates for older flash carts for 3DS. Probably not though, as I assume they have totally lost interest in the console.

    Could this lead to better emulation of the 3DS, or not really?

    I won't bank on it, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping BOTW source is in there somewhere. :P

    With people having more time on their hands to hack during to COVID-19, every company should have, in hindsight, taken measures to improve their security.

    My personal highlights of this leak:
    *There's an early DSi menu that's so early no menu was even programmed.
    *One of the source code files intentionally has the words "fuck you" in them.
    *There's a test audio file which is the Windows 2000 startup sound but earraped.
