    With the 3DS round the corner and all the piracy things going on at the moment, everybody seems so crazy to hack the thing! But I just cant help but think, if we do hack the thing, I cant help but think that we'll hack it, post it around, Nintendo will get hold of it and block. With all the stuff on forums just like this about hacking and other such stuff, Nintendo can easily get on forums so easily and find out just exactly what the hack is and block it with a patch. If you look on Wii Hacking section, everybody goes on about every IOS and what it does, and when that article came around about the DATEL cart tricking the DSi into thinking its a real cart. Its just too easy to find the information and I think it's just way too easy to find out the exploits.

    What do you guys think? Are we giving out too much information on our hacks?

    not at all this is the beauty of the homebrew community, we share the knowledge we gain. Its inevitable. Hacks need to be publicly available if mass amounts of people will use it. And on another note, the IOS's you speak of are nintendo made files, technically illegal to distribute, etc.

    Their always gonna be a cat and mouse relationship with hackers and video game companies thats half the fun right there, just look at the the history of the psp and you'll know what I mean.

    No use in worrying about hacking the 3DS as it hasn't even been released yet.

    Yeah but its getting harder and harder to find exploits in games, look at the iPod Touch and iPhone, exploits are not being released because there are just too few.

    I thought they didn't release them, to make sure apple won't patch them in the next firmware, or to attempt to use on future hardware, they stockpile exploits and release as needed.

    One of the things I find interesting about the whole hacking community is how it turns into rainbows and sunshine when news of exploits are found. But on the matter of this, if you look at platforms where there have been methods to circumvent hacking, if a community is devoted enough, they'll find a way to bypass it with something new. It makes sense for a company to stop exploits, as it's business, but the whole drive people get out of it is finding the exploits.

    The only way a system would be unhackable is if the device allows the user to do anything out of the box, which is sadly a major impossibility, for a number of legal reasons. The other way is to hire the hackers to work for the internal software on a device.

    Considering Nintendo's attitude about the 3DS, they seem to be pretty proud of the protection they put into the device. I guess time will tell if the community can put their claims of sophistication to the test. I find that level of "competition" interesting, even if I can't even hack my way through a paper bag.

    If Nintendo does the stupid fucking move of making games region-locked, I think that should drive the community to hack the thing faster. One of the things I love about the DS is I can buy that Tingle game, despite the fact it never came out in the US. I don't want to be forced to grin and bear their choice to not release a game already in English in the US (Pikmin 2 for Wii).

    To be honest, I won't bother buying a 3DS if it doesn't get hacked. You may think I'm a filthy little bastard, but that is just how my brain works.
    Oh, and since the ps3 has been finally kinda hacked, we can all bet the 3DS will, too. Just, in some years. Garsh, I love hackers.

    all of the hacks will get patched, but if you keep a 4.5 OR a 9.2 3ds you will be set!

    Please stop grave-digging all these posts. I try to read every post and it's a waste of everyone's time.
