    Is it possible to use the browser to access a file stored on the 3DS sd card?

    Just wondering because it'd be convenient to store the sites that launch code directly on the SD card, and I'm not exactly sure what the SD card's path would be from the browser.

    I've wondered this too, as it'd be easier to put SD://exploit-go.html for when you're offline, although i'm sure someone would have mentioned it before with all the android launchers and stuff we have.

    The Mii maker exploit is likely to come out soon and make the browser exploit obsolete anyway though, right? I hope so anyway, needing an internet connection to start an already fickle mod mode is a deal breaker for me since the whole point is to use the thing on the go, where I don't have reliable internet.

    I'd imagine, seeing as how the exploit turns ASM ROP into a binary file, which is then turned into JavaScript. The binary goes on your SD, and the JavaScript is hosted.

    I was looking into attempting to load files via the SD, and it doesn't accept anything without http:// before it.

    Can't be arsed to look around the threads, but when the exploit first appeared people already started talking about it. It's impossible, the browser won't allow it, at all.

    The browser is written in such a way that it's literally impossible to load a html file from an SD card. The only time the browser gets access to SD, is when you try to download/upload a file, in which case it launches photo album and lets you choose a picture.

    They talk about it a bit here https://gbatemp.net/threads/gateway-3-0-ultra.378041/page-71 but there's not a ton of info, It was rumored to be the method to get gateway working on 9.2 but that wasn't right, now it's rumored to be the method to get it working on new 3ds since supposedly the web browser exploit can't even work at all on n3ds.

    When the video of the Gateway working on N3DS was realeased, with SonyUSA being the suspected user, talk of a Mii exploit drifted around. No one is unsure of where it came from EXACTLY, but it was speculated to be scrapped because of talk that it broke games that include Mii's.

    Really? dang, so as of now there's no concept for using a new 3ds with an offline exploit? I'm in the market for one now so I guess I'll just get the original one so I can downgrade and use the offline DS profile exploit on it. :/ I'm upgrading from a 2ds because it won't let you downgrade on those, so any 3d model's a step up anyway.
