    Trapped in your bootrom
    I've read some things about how working on emulation for the 3ds would kinda "speed up" or something like that but i'm not sure what that means. With sighax and boot9strap out, does this mean anything good for emulators like Citra? Will it benefit development in any way?

    The bootrom its self being able to dump it yourself will help with the missing keys I guess? And other things

    games shouldn't need to be decrypted anymore after citra is updated.
    maybe in the future should citra go low-level, the bootroms will enable more accurate emulation as other emulators do when they have the bootrom.
