    So I've seen that the only publicly known exploit is the ROP exploit and it requires a 3DS running old software. Here is my question though;

    1. The ROP Exploit crashes NDS mode and then loads 3DS mode.
    2. Could you just use the same flashcart and run a .NDS file to accomplish the same thing since the ROP Exploit in the system settings app is patched??
    I mainly would like to know if there is a .NDS file that will load itself then close NDS mode (crash itself) and cause a launcher.dat file or something to load.
    If this won't work why won't it work. If this would work could somebody post a proof of concept here?
    Thank you in advance :)

    This is what all 3ds exploits do. You need an NDS file that prepares the exploit, and when the mset exploit is loaded it runs files from the SD card.

    Why have you just opened another thread when I have just told you your answers to all your questions regarding the 3DS exploit in your other thread you made first?

    Is there a way to do this on the newest 3DS software? I have an r4i that works on the latest software. I am mainly looking for an exploit that doesn't open from the settings menu but rather installs and loads directly from the flashcart.

    No, the mset exploit was fixed with 7.0.

    The expoit and entry point are fixed in 9.X+, there is no public homebrew for 9.X+. Follow smea on Twitter, he will release somthing soon™.

    So is there anything I can do to try and get this working? I really want to install my own software to my 3DS :|

    It doesn't crash in DS mode. Firmware settings for DS mode are modified (in DS mode) and are then read in 3DS mode, and because they are invalid they trigger the crash (buffer overflow etc etc).

    So no, it's not possible to do only in DS mode.

    You need the mset exploit which only works on 4.5-4.1. The reason is that the mset exploit is loaded in 3DS mode, giving you enough privileges to run 3DS games. You can't run an exploit from a DS flashcard because it can only load DS mode privileges.

    Except for the fact that he said he was gonna release it and now he refuses to saying he needs to do more work before releasing it... I just want his exploit but he refuses to release it. I tweeted him a few days ago asking to talk and he still hasn't responded :(

    I think this guy thinks if he keeps asking someone is going to magically pull a 9.x exploit out there arse and PM him with the details on how to use it :lol:

    If you want to install your own software, you'll need a 3DS on between 4.1 and 4.5, those are the only firmwares with a publicly available kernel exploit. Your next best bet is to wait for smealum to release ssspwn. It'll loads a separate menu for loading homebrew, but no installing directly to the 3DS menu.

    That makes sense... So I guess my R4i won't be enough. I really wish there was a working exploit.

    He is busy, and porting his code to the new 3ds. It takes time.
