    so anyways, I have been looking into making 3ds games for awhile, but the price of a dev unit has always kinda been too high for me, and I don't have a ton of money being in school. But I have a dev friend with a dev unit, and I'm interested in buying it from him, and he is offering a very low price. I am not currently in the dev program, but can register. Is it legal for him to sell his dev unit to me and am I allowed to develop games with it that go on the eshop?

    Yes it is, there is a equipment transfer form on the dev portal. Both must be under agreement for the 3DS platform.

    Proceeds to make a game, intentionally makes it buggy,
    Leaks security flaws in it for userland access to smea and yellow8 :ph34r:

    Personally, I would prefer to make something without getting it taken down
