    It is an entrypoint on the game The Legend of Zelda : Ocarina of Time.
    It has been said an insane amount of times: it doesn't matter what's the name of the entrypoint, if you're on 9.9 all of them will have the same level of access, doesn't matter if's called linkmainhax, gbahax or whateverhax.

    It's not out yet and probably not. You aren't going to find a kernel vulnerability in a game, at least not in standard games. The vulnerability has to be in the firmware itself.

    Yes, but the kernel exploit isn't in the game its self it's in the firmware. These games are just entry points used get unsigned code running so we can leverage kernel vulns. Meaning if there was a kernel exploit it wouldn't be entry point specific.

    Nevermind I misunderstood what you were talking about sorry.

    What if you're on a n3ds 9.0? I've yet to be able to do anything with OoThax even on 9.0.

    The tool that has been released allows only ninjahax 2 to run on 9.9. Oot may only be usefull on a 9.0 n3ds for loading the gateway menu. Hope smea keeps working on oothax.
