What's your reason for wanting arm9/arm11 control?

    I wanted to ask this question to the community of gbatemp because, it seems when people think of those arms, they think: "omg!! piracy!! :ohnoes:"

    well what I want these arms for is more homebrew capabilities and the ability to dump the games I already have on carts and convert them to digital titles so I don't look like a noob carrying a whole bunch of cartages in a case or in my pocket and I don't have to pay $100+ for games I already bought physically...

    What's your reason for wanting arm control?

    These "arms" are not arms, but ARM kernels.
    I want it because signpatch and emuNAND. But ARM11 would be still sufficient for me. It could be used to downgrade.

    Either CFW or the fact that I have control over almost anything my 3DS does. (Well, almost anything.)

    in the illuminati headquar—I have said too much!
    How is this homebrew development or emulators?
    Anyways, my reason is for piracy. It used to be for romhacks, but we now have romhacks with arm11 userland.
    I guess I could say dynarec.

    Anyone who says anything other than piracy is bullshitting. Even I bought a 9.0 n3DS for piracy.

    Was pretty worth it tbh. Bought it for $150 and that's like 4 games? I can use it to play infinite amount. Totally worth the investment.

    full GBA + SNES emulation and injecting ( i know it's possible for N3DS , what about OG 3DS users ? )
    also , maybe some day we will be able to install DS games inside the 3DS ?
    also PS1 emulation , but i doubt that

    - Emunand to be able to stay at a frimware level where menuhax is possible while still having the latest update to be able to access the pokebank again...
    - Spite Nintendo for preventing me from accessing a service I paid for (still have 2-3 month left) because of my firmware level...(9.9 instead of 10.3)
    - The ability to download CIA is just a bonus...I don't have much faith in the files from that iso site...they seem full of viruses/spywares...and I think i'll keep buying cartridge games for the safety of my laptop...

    I don't even know what is ARM9 or ARM11, I only know that the 3DS is using an ARM processor.
    Can you enlighten my lacking knowledge?

    Just for eShop access, really. Don't need piracy, but i'd rather spend my money without having to lose the convenience of theme-/browserhax. I like having full control over my save games.

    Oh, seriously ? :P
    ARM9 = PXI services, signcheck, all that stuff
    ARM11 = RAM usage, processes handling, services, games, etc
    in a nutshell of course, I guess there's something about it on 3dbrew

    Cart dumping can be done from userland. Braindump is one such example.

    Oh yeah, full frame ware spoofing

    No more stability updates
    Just change the number of the frameware and you free to go
    Or even ability to custom the update so we can get the cool stuff from it and remove the stability stuff from it.

    This would sound childish, but a while ago I was only interested on it to play GBA games and Cave Story 3D (since it's impossible to find). But now that they've blocked the eShop spoof, I want it to pirate the games. If you're not going to let me buy your games legitimately, i'll just pirate them (digital ends up being waaaaaaaaaay cheaper than physical in my country)
