    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.

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

    I agree, the people who are actually fucking with the internals are the people to watch.

    Also, ignore youtube.

    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.

    ^ 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.

    Just a suggestion.

    Turn this into a poll.

    Your current avatar is godlike. Just sayin'.

    Also, this topic has little merit, this could just as well be discussed in Awesome Theories or any other hacking-related 3DS thread.

    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.

    Hyping up sales for a product that can't be sold won't get them shit. :P It's more likely that they actually did managed to copy the data of a cart, but then ran into a roadblock when it came to swapping out the various games.
