    So this is weird. I recently did that region change thing on my N3DS' emuNAND, and I found a very strange network connection sitting in "Connection 1" in Connection Settings. The SSID is called "PR1VATE."

    What's so strange about this is, not only do I have no networks like this, the network was present on both sysNAND and emuNAND after I had already formatted both. So, for some strange reason, something is putting that network there after a System Format, even on my sysNAND which hasn't been touched at all.

    Any thoughts? This is very strange.

    That's... interesting. Almost... creepy in some ways.

    I could understand possibly a CFW doing that to emunand, but the sysnand? Strange indeed.

    Out of curiosity, what FW is the emunand and sysnand on? I wonder if nintendo accidently left something in for debugging perhaps.

    My sysNAND is on 9.0.0-20E, using a downgraded 4.x MSET. SysNAND is on 9.5.0-23U, using the regular MSET for that version. What's strange is that I think I've formatted once before this, and I didn't see anything like this. I wonder if there was anything on the SD card leftover from emuNAND that could be read in sysNAND. But because I formatted both, I would've thought them to be unlinked already.

    But yes. It's very creepy. I haven't touched the profile in sysNAND in case someone can tell me where to look around in a NAND dump for a setting or something.

    iirc wifi passwords are stored in the NVRAM along with the DSprofile but once the system is restarted they get cached (which is why setting up wifi in emunand passes over to sysnand) it may be that whatever profile exploit rop you used wrote a random wifi config to NVRAM and it was copied over to the cache after formatting.....although im pretty sure NVRAM is wiped too after a system format

    I can agree with this as after setting up Reinand on my N3DS with the MSET exploit and formatting a few times, there's usually a PR1VATE network there on restart. Nothing creepy about it :yaysp:

    Ohhh, so it had something to do with ReiNAND then. Alright, so in that case, my 3DS isn't possessed (somehow I'm disappointed by that).

    I'm pretty sure the last ROP chain installer I used was cakesrop.nds with the ropCustom.txt option.

    Thanks guys!
