    I'm not sure if it's of any use, but it comes directly from the Nintendo site so perhaps there may be something of interest related to the coding used in the 3DS. Though this is just me speculating, this may as well be a linux built or what ever.

    Been brought up before, IIRC its the javascript engine used or something. Whatever it is, it's some small reasonably insignificant portion of the browser that is based on GPL code so had to be open sourced. It has nothing to do with Linux. It is extremely unlikely to lead to anything of use.

    Agreed. how? [​IMG] I don't see anything useful here except maybe now we can tell a little more easily how the 3DS specifically interacts with javascript (since its based on this source code). It's clear that this isn't the actual 3DS web browser source code btw it's just what they based the 3DS web browser on.

    Maybe we could just have some fun crashing the browser like we used to. [​IMG]

    Nothing really.

    Also further proving this is not really the 3DS web browser's source here is a quote from Nintendo: (viewable on the download page)

    "In compliance with the OSS Licenses, we are making the source code of the open source software available to you."

    ...the "open source software" is Access's NetFront browser (if I remember the name correctly) but it's not directly the 3DS web browser's source code.

    To put it short, this is the code that Nintendo used to make the code for the 3DS browser.

    LOL, so Nintendo want us that we make a exploit soon? They beg so they can update the 3DS.

    Are you guys even reading this topic? It's a rather insignificant portion of the browser, not the entire thing.
    I originally jumped to the conclusion that the entire source was available, and assumed it was provided as an advanced example of 3DS application development - however actually reading the information at hand proved me wrong.

    EDIT: Just to clarify, this is source-code that they aren't allowed to keep closed. After all, nobody wants a repeat of the MisticScummVM fiasco.

    I was referring to your post in particular. And how everybody else apparently ignored it.

    This i just the source of the rendering engine, WebKit. Of course, if there is an exploit available for this specific version of WebKit (or JavascriptCore or WebCore for that matter) than theoretically you could use it on the 3DS browser providing it doesn't have some sort of memory protection.

    there are some conflicting points about this but more inclined to nothing can be done with this
    i think the 3ds hacking irc can confirm this as it is

    Are you all from Florida or something?!
    THIS IS NOT EXPLOITABLE, NOT EVEN CLOSE TO IT.
    It's just WebKit, not the fkng entire thing. Because Nintendo isn't stupid like everybody here...

    Ahh has someone not had their first joint this morning?

    Stereotypes aside... relax a little... No one in this forum is a hacking expert, so let people indulge in their little theories. If it annoys you, you can always... you know... not read it.

    The real people that have some idea of what they are doing have their own channels they work from... It's more constructive for everyone that people that don't have a clue come here and rant off any obsurdities that have versus tracking down, say Loopy, and ranting at him about it.

    TeamTwiizers already had access to the European source code MONTHS ago. And yes, many exploits were discovered. For an example of what they have done so far, visit this in your 3DS browser:
    http://96.26.172.219:8080/3ds.php

    That exploit creates a buffer overflow, which crashes the 3DS. All that is left for team twiizers to do, is to attach an executable payload.
