    Is this realistic considering memchunkhax?

    So we'll be able to patch signature checks? My friend is on 10.3!

    Honestly, downgrading is better. 9.2 is a million times more supported than 10.3 at the moment. However, there could be integration of memchunkhax into 10.3. I think the Gateway team are working on this.

    if you can use ntrcardhax and can deal with the not-that-stable memchunkhax2, then you can use CFW on 10.3 assuming a CFW is supporting it.

    Memchunkhax2 will not allow a CFW on it's own. It only gives access to the arm11 kernel.

    The best we can do with memchunkhax2 is use one service to delete and install properly signed cias (In this case, update files) to downgrade to an exploitable firmware. You will not get CFW on 10.3 with memchunhax2.

    it's not only ARM11 for CFW, it's ARM11 + ARM9. memchunkhax2 is an ARM11 exploit. ntrcardhax is an ARM9 exploit. ntrcardhax requires special hardware though. you can just downgrade...?

    OK... That just means he won't have CFW for a while/ever. Like we said, memchunkhax2 won't let you have CFW on 10.3. Other exploits? Sure, but we have seen nothing done for them yet, and assuming we will soon is silly.

    There was once a time running a CFW or Gateway above 4.5 seemed impossible, something developers never expected to achieve. The year 2015 has brought us an amazing set of feautres and possibilities towards the future, why shouldn't we believe in it? Don't forget we have Smealum around.

    Smealum doesn't approve of piracy.

    He gave us a set of tools regarding it, it was included in his intentions.

    Nothing Smea has released has allowed for piracy, and developing something that people can misuse is not the same as endorsing it.
