and This: http://3dbrew.org/wi...l:RecentChanges (Neimod & Yellows8)

Only pay attention to what Neimod and Yellows8 (team Twiizers) are doing on 3dbrew.

So ram hacking (or whatever its called) seems the most logical route to take?

No, it's just so neimod and Team Twiizers can easily document what's on the inside (coding) so they can potentially make a very easy-to-use exploit (NEXT YEAR OR LONGER) for users to use.

Not necessarily. Playing around with the RAM is really more about learning the inner workings of the system. Once these people get a handle on how it works, they'll try to find a weakness in the security. The period we're in now is the research phase.

The "Homebrew Channel (Greetz)", was really a way for Neimod to boast, "Look Ma, I'm inside the 3DS!" Its a tease of good things to come.

I agree, the people who are actually fucking with the internals are the people to watch.
Someone's interested in Guro, it seems... :creep:

Seriously though, just follow Neimod and the likes indeed. A purely software approach towards hardware that we don't know much of is pointless.

But it seems to only be a 1:1 copy of a retail cart and progress seems to have halted.

Also, ignore youtube.

^ This.

But don't get excited about the Crown3DS - It has barely even proven to work or even to be real at this point.

Woah woah woah! They went up a whole 2%. :rolleyes:

But yeah, RAM hacking would probably lead to the first successful exploit.

There's no reason to believe it's fake... Assuming you realize it's not a flash cart like the R4 and such we use nowadays.

From what we've seen it just looks like a cart copy. That does nothing useful as far as the average person is concerned, seeing as it wouldn't run homebrew and would likely cost more than the price of a couple games anyways (and as far as we've seen, only holds one at a time).

I know the differences; if I remember right the first (like very first) GBA flash carts did something like the Crown3DS.

From what we've seen the Crown3DS team could have easily just soldered a retail Splinter Cell 3D cartridge to the back of the FPGA board.

Eh if it's worth anything. I have a friend in China, that sends me my review copies of items. The Crown 3DS team is another branch, but he's said that he has seen it himself. The ETA he said was late 2012. Take this with a grain of salt, but I have the chatlog recorded somewhere. Let me find it. It was a few months ago, but still. I figured I'd post it anyway.

Tadah.

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

    Nor clothes 🤮 . Saves on time, soap, water and money having to wash them. :D
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
