Hey, does anybody know if it's possible to roll back a game update,

Here's my situation..

I've been using the Nintendo Entertainment System app and It's been working fine up until now.. I was on version 458752

But when I grabbed the new update and updated to version 720896 the app is now completely broken and won't launch. I get this error message "The software closed because an error occured"

When I install the older update it now just says that I need to download the new software update and refuses to launch with the older update installed.

Does anybody possibly know why this is happening or can advise me on how I can re-install the older update so that it works again?

Cheers guys :)

The NES app is a bit of a special case. Most games let you play without the latest update, but Nintendo wants to keep it tied to their online service. I do know there is a cracked nsp floating around the interwebs that would probably work for you, but then your console would most likely get banned.

Edit: Also, why not just use Retroarch? You can get way more than just NES with that.

I've already been using it and have game progress and also because the UI is nice and fancy. I think It looks better than most emulators. I like the box arts etc..

It isn't the app itself that isn't working.. It's just after I installed the latest update for it.. I've updated it in the past with no problems but this time the update broke the app with no way of reverting because of the update message I get

Fixed,

For anybody that's having the same issue and wants to delete game updates this is how you do it:

Loaded up HacDiskMount and mounted my EMMC, loaded the system/save folder and this is the file "8000000000000045" that contains info about required game versions.

I had to overwrite this file with the one that I got from my original nand backup (The backup was fresh, no games had been installed so this file was clean in terms of game versions)

    @Psionic Roshambo, The disc drive wasn't meant to be a cup holder to begin with. It does look like the place to put a cup on top because the tray has a circular outline.

    RIP to those who use it for cups rather than discs.

    After you hack it the drive becomes most useful as a cup holder lol

    @Psionic Roshambo, Yes, since you can play the games off a HDD anyways.

    The newer generation ruins the best shows that's for sure. :(

    @K3N1, You do know that the police have dogs that can sniff out drugs pretty well.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    So using your hard drive bays as a place to store your illegal drugs is not the best idea.
