    Hi guys. You might of heard of me trying to decode the NAND so we can use backups for each others 3DS or have a central edited NAND (Custom NAND- won't have any Nintendo code so I may upload it here) and you can load it to your 3DS via SD. Right now (will keep thread updated with new stuff) my weird things and know almost every files extension. I am trying to decode the files by applying my xorpad, but Xortools isn't being cooperative now. If you have any suggestions or would like to help, just give me a shout :)

    If I'm remembering correctly, rxTools can decrypt your NAND, no xorpads needed.

    Already did-but it decrypts only the CTR and some files are still decrypted.

    What's the point of this? Those who want to pirate can just download CIAs or 3ds roms. Why do you want to share nands?

    I have no fucking idea.
    and through what exploits are you going to get this to run? Most was patched 9.3 onwards hence no gw/ninjax support.
    Unless its for people with nandmods.

    Yes.
    The hardware mod where you can put downgrades on your system. But instead of backup, it will be the Custom NAND or a shared NAND.

    I have no fucking idea.
    I just find this pointless because if the user has a NANDmod (or a hardmod as you called it), they could just flash a backup of an exploitable firmware.
    Now, im expecting a reply along the lines of 'for those without a backup'
    If you dont have a backup, why would they get a mod int he first place?;-;

    What is it that you need?

    Also, what exactly are your goals with this project? As in... Could you put up a list?

    What's your current progress like.

    You have a very simplistic view of the 3DS's security or you're just trolling. I hope you're trolling.

    If one buys a console with firmware 9.2 and greater want homebrew and gateway could do the downgrade of the terminal

    I have no fucking idea.
    Any console above 9.2 cannot use Gateway?
    I am confused to as what you are implying.

    Console with firmware greater than 9.2, it should not be possible for the moment no exploits ... at least no exploit is public.

    It's always nice to have some more knowledge over the 3DS. Maybe some day it'll be useful to someone, or it's just fun to explore.
    For decrypting files with a xorpad, you should use this.
    Now, remember to not to post something people might not find useful (or when you're not a "recognized dev") without results, or suffer the wrath of a thousand posts.

    For all of you, the hardware mod I am talking about for putting backups on a system is this: http://gbatemp.net/threads/n3ds-nand-backup-possible-i-hope.381506/
    A NAND is unique to a system, as that system only has the key with the xorpads. My goal is make a custom NAND that does not require a key so everyone may use gateway and ninjhax on it.

    Funny i was just thinking about this the other day.

    For those who were unfortunate to update but know of this stuff (3ds hacking, nand, etc), one person in particular i know could benefit from this.

    I could also. My original 3DS was already at 9.4 when I got more into this stuff. I had to buy a 2DS on 7.2 to run Ninjhax.
