I understand both systems have current official firmwares that are unhackable, except for the 3ds, which would require some sort of hard ware mod which I'd rather not mess with.

Which system would be easier to find with a hackable firmware, which makes it easier to run backups and which is is more likely to break through this current stale mate?

Buy a 3ds, as if you're on the latest firmware version you can at least run homebrews and if you hardmod it you can also run backups. If you have a vita on the latest firmware version you can't run homebrews. Furthermore on the 3ds you can use more emulators, and there's a huge library of games.

Any 3DS can be downgraded without hardmodding, although it requires patience and a second 3DS that's already hacked (if the unhacked system is a 2DS or o3DS/XL, the hacked one can't be a New 3DS/XL).

Vita/PSTV systems are currently screwed past 3.60, and while there's nothing on-the-shelves with 3.61, there's also not much on the shelves, period. As for preowned systems, you'd have to ask the seller. The last memory card I bought came from someone who'd already updated, but you'd figure most of the active users these days would at least be semi-aware of the circumstances.

    My favorite part about filing taxes is that I always either owe a disportionate amount of money or get literally pennies back.
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    And I make under 30k a year.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Just sit in jail
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    If it was a option just to go to jail for month as opposed to filing taxes I might be tempted, jail ain't that bad atleast in the us.
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    You just go in for a month and come out with no fines or having to pay them anyway, I would be down.

    hi, good morning
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    @wolffangalchemist here, jail or even simple detention is instead a way to get debts on you by the state
    outright
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because its not "free", its only free if you stay there but then they want you to pay up once you get released, for all the "shitty service" and abuse they gave you
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I'm not fucking kidding
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's how its set up over here
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    and you'll never be able to get out of those debts unless..you commit a crime...thus making an endless cycle
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    they are "smart" you see
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    they're just bastards if you ask me lol
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    some homeless people commit crimes or a lot of misdemenors to get into detention so they have some place to stay even, but of course it will never solve their finances, quite the opposite
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so yea....its really messed up if you ask me
