    Trying to get smashhax working.

    I bought a cartridge of Smash which ended up being USA 1.1.0, which I can't find a pcap for (this is different from the USA 1.1.0 eshop update).

    If I buy the game on eshop right now, what version will it be?

    And it can't be reverted to a previous version by renaming the update folder on the SD card?

    You could use HANS, which is incompatible with updates, and play on version 1.0 with custom things. However, you can't save. If you have CFW, you could install the updates as CIAs and be on whatever version you want.

    that MIDI sequencer
    I don't think you'll find the update file inside your "Nintendo 3DS" folder... :D

    that is when you download the update via eshop, not if you download the entire game, the update becomes merged with the app.

    Alright thanks, that's pretty much what I was wondering. So I have to track down a 1.0.0 copy of the game, is that my only option?

    I don't think official retail to cia conversions are ever updated in-place, but I wouldn't be sure about this...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can get any cart version of the game and delete the update.

    EDIT: Double Ninja'd!

    no, it's hardcoded into the romfs if it is more than 1.0 version (the cart)

    My copy was 1.1.0 when I bought it, never downloaded any update.

    Uh, what? The game and the update package are separate, unless this just recently started happening. The eShop should just prompt for an update, not automatically download it.

    it doesn't automatically download it. is the update that is IN the game and can not be deleted. though most of the games doesn't do this.

    But digital-only games are updated by reuploading a newer version, unlike the regular base+update setup... that's what I was thinking of, it's possible that the base was updated (just jike they do on physical versions)

    If SmashHax doesn't work out, you could always pick up the Nintendo Selects version of Ocarina of Time and use OoTHax on it. You'll just need a save adapter or an already hacked 3ds.

    Just spent the weekend setuping my laptop to be able to inject packets properly, so I'm rather motivated to get SmashHax to work, if only for stubbornness sake. In the end getting an old cartridge shouldn't prove to be too hard, I suppose.
