    I don't think he should be trying to take credit for something that he kept hidden from the public, that someone else discovered and released publicly later.

    Yeah, that's no matter, i want to know if the developers can utilize the exploit to run homebrew without the flashcart like the spider.

    I don't think gateway gets any credits on 3dbrew.

    I think they don't list all known exploits until it's used if it can be exploited.
    It lists only "public" exploit, they won't provide all possible vulnerabilities/flaws for nintendo to patch if it can be used for future homebrew entry point.

    "hey, nintendo, I will use cubic ninja for my exploit which I will release in 6 months, don't patch it ok?"

    Nope, but even on other exploits they have put stuff like discovered by mr x AND mr Y independently......just seems a bit childish to be like meh we already knew about that neh neh....plus the browser exploit that was accredited to 3dbrew devs before gateway proper utilisation was mostly if you do this it sometimes crashes but it's mostly unusable ...same for mset

    Doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things I doubt gateway care for what they get accredited for, they are making money and I think that's all they care about really

    I'm assuming that back in 2012 it was just one hack that allowed an entry point but didn't have any other known vulnerabilities to use as stage2.

    Remember that ninjhax takes 4 vulnerabilites in order to run homebrew. The second stage it uses (the GPU hack) wasn't discovered until 2014.

    Doesn't matter you can't just say well i discovered it 3 years ago but never said it or mentioned it or told anyone but I did so too bad

    Someone else discovered it individually from them and released it they deserve credit not the other way around

    You guys worry too much about who gets credit and who's the top dog in the ds scene. That's why its the slowest growing scene by far. Priorities are in the wrong place.

    For what it's worth, we're thankful to anyone that finds these exploitable points
    as well as the people who put them to use.
