    You guys think Nintendo can easily check when you go online if your system is hacked?

    I'm just scared the homebrew scene will only work if you don't ever update and never be able to play any games online like how the PS3 is experiencing right now.

    If this is the case I might consider getting two 3DS. One for homebrew/hacks and one to go online with.

    If you mean flash carts, they can't tell if the AP doesn't get tripped, and they present themselves as a legit game anyways.

    Flash cart's don't actually modify the 3DS at all, and nobody's been banned for using a flash cart.

    We won't be able to enjoy WFC after hacking our console? That's tragic! :O



    Seriously though, it's a matter of weighing the pro's and con's. I didn't really play online very often on my DS, I sincerely doubt that I will on my future 3DS... soo... :tpi:

    Nintendo cant do anything to 3DS. When 360 is flashed you can still go online and M$ wouldnt know. It is against law to remotly brick consoles plus they dont have ability for it

    Microsoft bans users that hacked their 360 when they go online. The system gets banned so they can't go online anymore.

    They could just force an update that wouldn't boot properly (say, it'd display a line of text mocking the user and then power off). That would effectively brick it, as your normal user does not have the tools to factory-format it and it would no longer play games or anything.

    Even though you don't login, your 3DS has a single online account with Nintendo linked to the serial number. In theory they could just prevent your serial number from accessing the web if they detect the system has been hacked. They can also force an update by releasing a mandatory 1.1 update to a game to access online functions. That requires eShop access and the eShop requires the latest firmware to be accessed. Seeing as the last DSi exploit to be found got patched away easily means that unless you value playing Super Mario World on a handheld over Pokemon X and Y or Smash Brothers online, you won't be using the hack long.

    not if you keep your drive fw up to date and scan rips with abgx, there are plenty of people with flashed drives and odde that can go on live

    People are so impatient... We don't know anything about the hack yet

    1) We don't know when the hack will be released
    2) We don't know if we will be able to use the hack when they release it
    3) We don't know if the hack will let us play Warez or just homebrew
    4) We don't know if the hack will let us have access to Wi-fi (Sudokuhax/Dsiwarehax didn't let you use Wi-fi for some reason, lack of libs I guess)

    I don't think he's being negative, I think by the time the 3DS is hacked, it'll be too late. Even then, I don't want hackers playing online and I hope the 3DS never gets hacked.

    Yes, I'm agree with you, it's horrible play with those kind of people.. I hate it, but well, it's the pros and cons of the hack, and wanted or not, it will be hacked by the time...

    They can't detect 1 to 1 burned discs. What they can detect is old firmware and parts that aren't supposed to be there. A lot of the AP detection nowadays says "Hey, let me access this component" and when the flashcart/modchip responds with it, they know it was hacked. It appears that Xbox 360 can detect bad rips of games and will ban you if you are online while playing them. There is a patch you can apply to the iso to get around the detection, but most people don't know how to do that or the bootlegger they bought it from won't bother to apply it.

    The hack that is out there for the 3DS is really not that straightforward. The only way to get to it is by buying a retail game(which could even be one of those rare ones out of print already) then buying a save dongle or risking destroying the cartridge by taking it out of its casing(static electricity) or breaking off the tab(some people don't know about files) and sticking it into a DS to change the save. Not to mention the previous thing about a patch by Nintendo. The DSi hacking scene didn't ever get around to custom firmware and fell apart after the first patch by Nintendo.

    You can go online with a hacked PS3 *and* 360 (and Wii, PSP, etc). The problem is you risk getting banned on any modified console no matter how stealthy you are.

    In all reality, you USUALLY don't get caught unless your cheating online with your hack. Am I right?
