    I don't know about that team but I have seen others come close behind closed doors.

    I know the people I have worked with are holding off till all of the chain is blocked since 10.1 blocked some

    Yeah, you can easily guess that it went the same way it goes when someone claims to have a >9.2 Kernel/Downgrade access every time...

    I am just going to bite my tongue on this one. I am not trying to start any hype trains or tarnish my name. I am just reporting back test from beta's I have seen. All I am going to say is it involves a game to get it started similar to how CN uses the QR code and another game to finish the process.

    I don't have any reason to doubt what you are saying is not true.

    I was just posting that link since it was the situation that OP was asking for. All this people who come rushing claiming Kernel exploit/downgrading and is coming in 24 hours are always false.

    Smea hacked the 3DS, it took him time, didn't go around yelling everywhere he had done it as soon as his 3DS crashed for the first time and when he revealed he had proof to show as opposed to all this other users claiming to have ARM9/11 access and all that crap about release :rolleyes:

    It was a mistake posting that tweet, not saying its fake. I dont know the status progress right now, probably they are still working on it.

    Dude seriously? :glare:

    They aren't working shit, Smea himself clarified the situation and the guys backed off admitting they didn't really know what it meant the same day.

    It went from Smea's hidden kernel to Downgrade/legit cia only to it was looking suspicious in no time...

    People shouldn't ride the hype ran just because someone says "I haz the kernelz".

    In1 or 2 years someone will find an kexploit above 9.2 im very sure. It takes time to find and it isn't easy to find something like this. You should now the system etc.

    Don't know if @MassExplosion213 is working on it. The only thing what we can do is to wait for something new..

    Never claimed to be looking for testers. My original method didn't work out due to not being able to get ROP where I needed it. Honestly, not even the people over in #3dsdev have gotten ROP under this process. My current stuff is using a "new" vulnerability. I'm still working on it, just not as high priority.

    Please let us work. As @RaMon90 stated, it was a mistake, and we thought we had am:net but it was kinda weird. We had it without really having it. It was like am:net under am:sys name. For further news, check @JustPingo's Twitter account. Mine is not really important about these news. It was my mistake, as I didn't read all the payload disassembly. And svc 0x7B is only accessible with ARM11 kernel, but is was never used, it was for debugging purpose.
