    Alright, before I start, I have an european New Nintendo 3DS XL with normal 10.1 Homebrew stuff. And all this 2.5 Hans stuff. So yesterday I opened multiple apps ("Nintendo Network ID Settings", and some other stuff) just for fun with Hans JPN Region, JP Language. Well.. everything was in english, nothing fancy happening. But later that day I noticed I couldn't enter the eshop anymore, Error Code 007-2001. Alright "try again later". So I did. And the error code didn't disapear. Today I noticed when I tried to enter the Miiverse: "Error Code 022-2502: This Nintendo Network ID cannot be used because it's country settings does not match the setting of the system. " So I checked my Region Settings.. And hell god.. "Japan".

    Small extra bit: I wanted to check my 3ds region with Rinnegatmantes Lua interpreter System.getRegion(), it returned 0 which should be Japan.

    And NO, you CAN'T select "Japan" as region on an european 3ds xl.

    Also I'm still kinda new to GBATemp, how can I upload a picture here? ^^'

    EDIT: Alright so I changed back my region from japan to Germany and tried to reproduce it. It seems like it isn't the "Nintendo Network ID settings" app, but rather the "System Settings" app which caused this. The app instantly crashes when I try to open it with Hans, JPN/JP.

    Small Picture with me in Japan:

    Wow, that cool. From here to kernel exploit there is a long way (if any) but it means nnid setting can change region setting freely.

    Uh... why would we have kernel ? It's just RAM editing, and HANS patches services functions calls...

    I'm sorry, and I'm pretty much a noob, but I assumed it might be a kernel since the region change is permanent. I started the System Settings app without Hans and it displayed "Japan". Not my usual region. And I took a look at my region with Rinnegatamantes Lua Interpreter and for System.getRegion it returned 0. Even after rebooting several times.

    Because we can modify apps that have access to extra functions hb don't access.

    That's not kernel... that's just because *hax 2.5 has access to more RAM...

    It stays even after rebooting. So the ram should be cleared while rebooting, shouldn't it?

    No, System Settings just saved that information when it closed. The RAM was cleared, indeed, but that information is not stored in RAM permanently.

    What you did is force MSET to save Japan as your country, nothing more.

    I wonder if you would be able to access the Japanese eShop if you did this without a NNID on the system. Probably not, but you do get a different eShop based on the region settings, so it's just about dumb enough that it might work.

    Newbies need to stop posting threads like this we see threads like this every day oh my game crashed is that a possible exploit or oh I changed my syst settings is that a exploit no. For one game crashes and exploits are two totally different things.

    Read my previous post.
    It's worth a try and I think someone should definitely try it and report their findings, although I'm not expecting it to work it's just about dumb enough that it might.

    No idea. I didn't test anything like that yet. Ask these other guys who know more then me. I just thought this might have been interesting.

    Well I CAN'T Access the pal e shop if I try to enter with my Region set to Japan. You could give it a try.

    You should do this on a different 3ds, not your main 3ds. Try it out with an OLD 3ds if possible so you don't mess up your hb :)
