    So smea has been very busy lately. He's been teasing a lot of things, but it's still really unclear what his plans are.

    He's teased about 3 or 4 things so far:
    • First was TDVS a save data editing tool.
    • Second was freehax a way to install ninjhax to the device only requiring Cubic Ninja initially. It was hinted and highly speculated that this would be through a free eShop game.
    • Third launching NH 2.0 through OoThax.
    • Finally ironhax homebrew the the free eShop game Iron Fall. Now here's where things start to get sort of ambiguous. It's unclear whether or not this is actually freehax or it's something different.
    Now a the moment there appears to be two possibilities for Ironhax:

    One it is indeed freehax and will require Cubic Ninja or OoT for the first install. This has been hinted by smealum here.

    Two it is a completely new stand alone entry point relying only in Iron Fall. Hinted at by smealum here and here.

    The second possibility is interesting because it most likely means smea found a new entry point while working on freehax completely negating his previous statements.

    There seems to be a lot misinformation floating around about which it will be, but the truth is we do not know. We can probably expect to here more smealum about of the next few days and hopefully we'll see this new exploit by the end of the week.

    If someone tells you what ironhax will or will not require they are probably wrong and just speculating! Because the only one who knows is smealum!

    The save data editing tool is TDVS, not TVDS. Great post, btw. Hopefully this will clear all these misconceptions.

    OOPS! Thank's I've corrected it! I hope clears misconceptions also. Everyone seems to be walking around with an idea of what's happening, but the truth is we just don't know.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    third option, smea after loads of work he found out you no longuer required OOT3ds or CN for "entrypoint" making the previous statement outdated\irrelevant

    Yeah, but all the threads really misconstruing what we actually know about what smea and people a discussing it like it's definetly going to work one way or the other. When actually we know pretty much nothing about smea's plans.

    Yeah, there's alot if speculation, and also hype. I think anyone that was truly interrested would do their research. Anyway, I'll see myself out. Sorry for the intrusion.
