    I know getting Ninjhax is a pain on 11.0. I now have OOThax running, so I'm asking people more experienced than I in the trends and technical points. With OOThax running, what's the likelihood that I may need Cubic Ninja in the future?

    You plan to play ocarina of time as a game?

    I have Powersaves, I should be able to swap back and forth. I also have no idea how I'd mod the save on Cubic Ninja without a QR Code. I can't seem to find a copy of the modded save working on 11.0

    Found it at a local game store for $30 last friday. Trying to figure out if I still need it before the 7-day return.

    I would just keep it and hope smea releases a fix for it on 11.0 firmware. For now though you can use it to help downgrade any 3ds on 10.7 firmware and below.

    If you plan on playing the game then keep it, if not, then return it, simple as that.:mellow:

    That's what I thought. My real worry is future updates. I know httpwn can be used to avoid having to update my firmware but not sure OOT will get patched out

    Even if oot would be patched, what makes you think cubic hax won't? Nintendo will try to eliminate all hax as much as possible. Every game with exploits is at risk of patches. My guess is to buy most popular games with plenty of copies, like super smash bros brawl was. Since its a popular game, many people would have it and copies would be available, that means it wouldn't be a threat to inflation of scalpers. Then again you shouldn't try buying games for exploits cause it alters value of games and can cost lots for something that was worthless to begin with. I gotten lucky buying games i like that had been expoited but it was luck, cause i just liked the game. :)

    I was also pleasantly surprised to learn that I had 3 games with secondary hacks. But I don't see myself playing cubic ninja, and you're right that all exploits are patchable. I'm just gonna return it to the store. I can fall back on basehaxx or OoThax updates.

    Thanks for your insight.

    Remember to just buy and keep games you like, if you buy a game for a exploit with no intention of playing it, just return it when you are done. Thankfully some games are on eshop to download but i heard some get removed if nintendo finds exploits with them but again, maybe you'll be lucky. I dunno how or when nintendo decides to unlist their eshop titles but my guess is the HUGE AMMOUNTS OF TRAFFIC OF PEOPLE DOWNLOADING ONE GAME AT A TIME Could be why. But just my guess. Try to stay away from the hustlers around the net okay? :)

    If I can ask your opinion/knowledge on one more issue:

    I've been curious about downgrading for CFW. I know this requires a hardmod, and I have no such skills. So before I jump on that bandwagon and find a service for that, do you know what the physical ramifications are to a 3DS from that? I have the MM N3DSXL, and while it's not in the best condition because I actually play it rather than look at it I still don't want to do anything that could mar the console.

    I think hardmods look sexxy, especially if done by someone with experience.

    Hell, you could even ask a hardmod installer to hide it underneath the battery cover if your one of those that hates it showing.

    Interesting indeed. I am indeed one of those, mainly because my system is a special edition. I noticed they had wires connecting to the sd reader, though. I imagine that's for the dump and restore capabilities, but do they typically provide the wired reader?

    Pretty sure they do. Since you have an XL model, I'd also contact @vb_encryption_vb

    No, he does them all as well. I just feel like vb_encryption_vb is more active on the forums, so I would imagine you'd get more timely updates with him. Though I wouldn't know. Go with whoever you want.

    Thanks guys. Hopefully soon my 3DS will be as blatantly illegal as my psp and virtual wii.

    Once I have wifi at home, my next stop is the Wii U.
