I'm sure this has been explored by someone, but ... We (meaning the hacking community) seem to have a really good handle on how content is delivered from Nintendo to the 3DS. I recently nuked my kid's Pokemon 3DS XL trying to fart around with upgrades and downgrades (system reset might work - haven't tried it yet - but if it does, it will leave him with FW 11). Got me thinking... Couldn't we SPOOF Nintendo's upgrade servers? I mean, if you upgrade right now - no matter what FW you're on, you get 11. What if we set up a server that we can redirect 3DSs to "update" - and it only delivers the "latest safe" firmware? This would rock in my case - because even with this system reset, I could get 10.5 down which is still safe to hack. Seems like this would be easy to spoof with all the knowledge the community has. Thoughts? Am I crazy?
