Why can't games like SSB4 be firmware fixed for 4.x yet?

    Govanify put out the keyX right? He even posted a bit of the xorpad, so why can't we decrypt them?

    We can decrypt SSB4.

    This has nothing to do with the ability to make them playable on 4.x.

    The game's code relies on 3DS System functions introduced in later firmwares.

    Mars?
    Does the 1.0.7 update for SSB4 rely on 3ds System functions introduced in firmwares above 9.2?

    i know 1 of the ssb updates adds the amiibo settings which will cause the game to crash when selected if you haven't updated to 9.3+

    Good to know! I guess the demo is in the same field?

    Not true. I'm on 9.0 and I added the 1.0.7 update which adds amiibo and mewtwo support. It works perfectly.

    Did you try actually using an amiibo?

    Hmm... interesting... I'm just wanting some of the 4.x CFW features like screenshot and cheat support for higher firmwares, that would put the icing on the cake
