    Does someone confirmed that it works on 10.3 < SYSNAND?!?
    Because CFWs are based on a old firm, where memchunkhax 2 isnt patched(idk if someone implemented new firm yet).

    EDIT: just so success reports.....(lets look inside the code)

    Cakes and ReiNand both have support for 10.4 firm.

    Nor could they figure out how to write a SNES emulator for o3ds.

    I bet if a team of average monkeys made a console, it would be at least 2x as stable as the 3DS. Really though, are all of Nintendo's engineers and programmers brain dead?

    I wonder whether that has to do with the fact the o3DS has half the cores and 1/3 the clockspeed?

    Not possible, o3DS doesn't have the horsepower to emulate SNES games.

    any chance of this being more stable than memchunkhax2 on 9.3-10.3?

    O3DS 9.2.0-20E sysnand, bootet to AuReiNand 10.6 with 10.4 native firm

    Success! kernel version 2.50.11
    Frame counter increases
    Worked 4 of 5 times.

    N3DS 9.0.0-20E sysnand, bootet to AuReiNand 10.6 with 10.4 native firm

    Stuck on:"
    svchax
    Press start to exit."

    0/0

    Looks like n3ds need adjustment, but texhnically possible i guess

    @StapleButter 's BlargSnes can emulate SMW at 60fps on O3DS.

    I dunno, blargSNES was made by a group of homebrew hackers. If you're getting paid for something, you probably do a better job.

    It's not a matter of whether you're competent or not - the SNES CPU has some weird instructions that can't be accurately emulated on the 3DS's CPU. Ergo, software emulation has to be employed, which is slower and more taxing on the hardware. This is why Nintendo's emulator works only on N3DS, because it's using software to emulate the SNES's internal functions.
    On the other hand, blargSNES uses the GPU to render stuff, which makes it faster on slower hardware, but sacrifices accuracy.

    They're just incredibly bad at security. Sony post-PSN hack and post-root keys leak seemed to have realized the need for a better team dealing with cryptography and security. All Nintendo's had are the consoles being hacked so while they've had to fix some things there hasn't been an event that requires a major realignment from them.

    We already have PastaCFW, so why no SpaghettiHax?

    I would say Arm9LoaderHax and n3DS security being perma broken as a result would probably cause them to at least think about a major redo on their security team. :P

    I mean come on. We have perma cold boot CFW now as a result. You'd think they would scold their security team at least! :P
