Will SigHax/B9S allow me to install Dev Unit FW on a retail console?

    Hey guys, I tried to install SNAKE FW on my N3DSXL for quite some time now, but with no luck.

    Doesn't Luma do that, actually? Pretty sure it's an option in the menu for Luma B9S.

    No. You need to inject a OTP from Dev and flash the firmware for devs through hardmod. Or just use Luma.

    It does.

    "
    • Set developer UNITINFO: patches the value of CFG_UNITINFO sent to the ARM11 on boot to make applications believe they are running on a developer unit, and switches the CIA encryption to the developer one.
      This makes ErrDisp display debugging information and allows you to install and run certain system software for development units, but also prevents using the eShop, amiibo, retail-encrypted CIAs etc."
     
    nechigawara and Thelostrune like this.

    This isn't possible yet, but it will be possible. Once boot9 was dumped, it became possible. (Even if sighax didn't exist, faking a dev system could be done using a9lh with the information from a boot9 dump.)

    It's more that no tools to let you do this yet.

    By the way, the reverse is possible, too. It would be rather fun to use a Partner CTR Debugger unit running in retail mode with the remote debugger functionality enabled. Great way to make cheat codes.

    Myriachan from the stream? If so, thanks for the math and the compute time. :bow:
