The Crown3DS is apparently the first flash cartridge capable of running 3DS software. The Crown3DS has been tested against the most recent firmware and reportedly works. The development team are currently busy testing the cartridge with a multitude of games but there’s no firm release date for the device as of yet.
There goes the neighborhood.
pfffff wy!!!!!! wyyyyy!!!!
PS: i think it is fake by see the movie on the website
it’s not fake, you’re an idiot
When I read the headline I thought this was gonna be an article akin to when the PSN got hacked and millions of people’s card details were at risk >.>
Nintendo doesn’t store that information though (like a virtual wallet). I figured it was the homebrew finally taking off.
how is it possible for a nintendo3ds to get hacked if u know tell me (:
It is not exactly hacking, it is just taking the programs from it.
Thank you, Dan Morrison, for that, and people, ACTUALLY READ THAT!
A friend of mine threw this info at me the other day. I’m interested to see what kind of homebrew applications they can make for it.
It only supports 3ds backups.
No homebrew support :( – So I’ve heard anyway.
Well if it supports backups, theoretically it should support the homebrews too.
Incorrect. Playing a backup is executing signed code. Playing homebrew requires executing unsigned code. 1. Find a new exploit or 2. Official SDK
i think you should change the title of this post. people are going to misinterpret this situation and run with it.
I agreem especially because technically, that term doesn’t really fit…
Yes! Thank you!
I hope Nintendo finds a way to block this quick. The last thing the 3DS needs is rampant piracy at this point.
easy enough, there is a new title update after all. The 3DS is much more future proof then the old systems.
Or find a way to put anti-piracy measurements in the new games
Are you kidding? As it is region locked I won’t buy it until it has been un-locked so I can play English games & my wife can play Japanese games. In this day & age of international travel & life a region locked device is just silly. The DS lite had it figured out. Plays any games from anywhere. It’s not about piracy it’s about making the device user friendly. Nintendo are their own worst enemy sometimes.
I wouldn’t risk it. Nintendo would probably find a way to render the 3DS unusable as they did with the R4 cards.
Nintendo are not actually able to do that. While its possible for them to do so, its illegal for them to do it as well.
If the device doesn’t function as it is meant to, and is the not the direct result of third party software or hardware or negligence, then it goes against the terms and conditions not only of nintendo, but general sales.
I’ll try and find the source of above, because i found it hard to put in words..
Point is – you payed for the hardware, and never agreed to not use 100% certified crap in it, and nintendo don’t have the right to stop said hardware, unless you actually modify the hardware you purchased.
They can attempt to block the cards though.
i only want one that can run DS games in a 3DS correctly
not really such a hard thing to find to be honest…
yeah? where can we find it then? If you’re going to make a comment like that – at least follow up with a link – because as far as I know, you’re full of sh!t.
SuperCard DSTWO and AceKard 2i. Use google you lazy fuck.
Yes The AceKard And The DsTwo But I Think He Means A card That Can Display DS Games In The Screen Completely :D
This is not a pro piracy website dipshit! Use freaking google for fucks sakes! Even the comments in TPB will tell you!
Just hold Start (Or is it Select…) while loading the DS game from the home menu.
Lol this took longer than when psp got hacked, idk ANY1 in my neighberhood who didnt have a hacked psp
yes! finally! Now we can start getting homebrew apps, emulators and other awesome stuff!
It’s cool, but also disappointing…
nope, this is a win only for piracy. This cannot be used for homebrew, and will be patched quickly either way. Unlike the Wii, they can and will release sweeping changes to the 3DS to block software exploits.
How about you stop being a cheapskate and actually PAY for your games?
How is homebrew the same thing as piracy?
homebrews are homemade games, atari 2600 homebrews are the most easy to program
Honestly, 100000% of flash card users use them for pirating, and 10000% of flash card users lie about pirating over the Internet (realistic percentages.) You can only control what you do. Unless you work at Nintendo and can automagically self destruct piraters. If so, Y U NO RELEASE GOOD GAMES AT LAUNCH! I WAIT MONTH FOR GOOD GAME!
Homebrew is Legal!!
Actually, dumkopf, this is not homebrew- it’s darned PIRACY. And, that is illegal. Very illegal.
Some people don’t have the luxury of extra money to spend. And game prices are getting higher and higher. It’s ridiculous. Will it ever stop?
And why do game companies charge so much for games. Cause people too cheap to pay for a game steal them by illegally downloading them. Even old games are copyright protected.
No its because they are greedy dumb fuck.
I imagine there would be some difficulty with hacking 3DS games. For example, most 3DS games use streetpass and stuff, so games that use those features might have some issue playing on the 3DS depending on how they were programmed. Or they might start doing some sort of spotpass DLC like the Dead or Alive Dimensions DLC or something. That way, people would just buy the original copy and get the extras.
one game ata time gets loaded into a blank cartridge via a jtag, its essentially the same as playing a rom straight from nintendo , but with all the restrictions o fregion lock too
Wait a minute, that video looks really fake…
Lol it was bound to happen, dont worry bout it so much.
but what about nintendo bricking the 3DS when an update comes if you have this registered in your 3DS? o,o
Ha, you beat me to it.
yup xD so anyway if the flashcard comes out it would be stupid because u wuoldnt be able to use it xD
so it’s a win for nintendo :D
The only solution I say is to not have the 3ds connect to the Internet in any way and turn off the wireless feature and not do any more system updates. Unless the 3ds has the tech to defect the flashcarts already, then you should be okay.
but knowing nintendo, the bricking updates will come with the most expected sofware update xD
Its Ilegal To Brick Systems U Paid For They Would Ban The Online Features Same as Xbox and Ps3 They Ban People From Some Games And Sometimes Ban The Whole Console But Not Bricking Thats Just Sad To Brick Peoples 3DS xD
Stop Typing Like This It Is Really Annoying!!!!
Stop trying to make piracy right. There’s a place for your kind- the big yellow squishy room.
Get that straightjacket on!
and the 3DS has a list of ALL the cards you put in it, also it detects wich ones you put in the most, and EVEN HOW MUCH STEPS YOU TAKE, hacking that would be VERY difficult xD
But when you put a flashcart in a 3DS it shows up as another game. My R4i shows up as a Spongebob game.
Pretty much what Chris said. A few of the current generation flashcarts actually work with the 3DS updates…even though it is suggested to just turn connectivity off when using the carts.
Well, that’s always an assumed risk with piracy.
no no, this time is different, because in all the previous DS the warning said “using piracy software may render the console useless”, and in the 3DS it says “using piracy software WILL render the console useless”
Nothing remains unhackable
You have to remember that if/when the 3ds detects unauthorized software, it could brick your system.
I will never use pirating software so I’m confused. What do you mean when you say brick the system?
as it sounds, it becomes as usefull as a brick c:
im confused. is this some sort of action replay? because i CANNOT have animal crossing without an action replay.
ughhh you have to catch literally millions of fish just so ur house can be a little bit bigger. don’t give me that “lazy” crap. its a videogame. videogames are suppose to be fun. catching fish is fun but not when you have to catch a shit load.
Not sure if serious, or just retarded…
how am i retarded? fuck off. whats wrong with expressing my opinion?
action replay plus animal crossing equals fun.
oh, and i’m in 4 honors classes
oh and its not nice calling people a tragic illness. i NEVER call people retarded or gay because i’m not a douche. i call people fuckers like you because its an insult. you shouldn’t make fun of people that have serious issues and get bullied constantly.
LOL Luigi. Just stop.
Yeah but mentally disabled people don’t have a choice. Homosexuals do. Big difference.
LOL No. I posted a comment that I enjoy using an action replay on Animal Crossing.
I don’t know why I’m getting so much fucking hate.
You think these Nintendo-based websites would be a little bit nicer…
Okay, I know your getting a little bit angry in your brother’s shadow….
Okay, um… Please do not overreact. I do sometimes and I get nothing. Tis just a way to express; guys, girls, everyone, just do not do that crap. No making fun of anybody, and for you, Luigi; just, please, calm down.
no 3D video recording for them then :P
Until the modders make their own app that actually works better.
Haha, epic.. Take that, default apps :P
Haha, epic.. Take that, built-in apps :P
I wouldn’t consider that a loss unless the videos can be uploaded to YouTube, JTV, Veoh, or some other video sharing/streaming site. Outside of that unless users got a new SD card (the ones with the adapter and the micro and not just the SD card whole) or a reader then your videos are just stuck on the default SD card.
…and that’s no good (unless you have a reader).
You should really check up on the best site for this type of news:
http://gbatemp.net/ — they’ve gotten in contact with the crown3DS team, this card only supports one game right now.
Pingback: (3DS) 3DS ya ha sido hackeada
Oh cool, a back-up plan in case MH3G doesn’t come to US.
That’s too bad. I’ve always paid for the games I own. I support Nintendo because I believe in what they do. When crap like this happens, everyone is effected negatively in the long run. It’s not fair for honest consumers like me.
All I want is a way to import games on my 3DS like I did with my DS. Playing Jump Superstars and Ultimate Stars, Ouendan 1 and 2, Taiko no Tatsujin, Band Brothers, and One Piece Gigant Battle (EU). Not going to be able to play any of these sequel if they come to the 3DS. I want new Ouendan without having to buy a JP system.
All i want is to play classic NES and SNES on my 3ds…hell i’d even pay nintendo for it. But WTF nintendo!!! It looks like i’ll have to pirate just to play them. Come out with a classic line.
You people realy are stupid. The flash crat CAN update as well. I would rather use this then the stupid e shop that makes you re-pay for your gba games, so i will just turn internet connectoin off simple as that.
“realy are stupid” has two l’s :p
Yeah! Be illegal! Don’t liste to the law! You can still play your pirated games in federal prison!
In your dreams, two letters.
Im not pirating shit on 3DS, I’m actually gonna buy the games this time and support Nintendo. I don’t think the hack is true anyway being that when there’s system updates, it changes the firmware as well as adding new content. Yea you could turn your off wireless but then you’ll be stuck in time space continuum with no new content.
If only online communities could automatically block any sort of hacked systems from playing online, that way they would only get to hack there own property and not destroy our property.
I might get one of these for foreign games if enough games I want don’t come to the States, seeing the 3DS is region locked.
I just don’t want cheaters and hackers on online games like Mario Kart 7. Although, I am not a fan of doing stuff like this just to obtain a game.
I hate people who cheat online. Metroid Prime Hunters (DS) was the worse case of cheating. People used cheets which makes then never die or they have one shot kill unlimited ammo guns with out even collecting them.
If theres cheaters in mario Kart 7, I wont be happy :l
Re-pay for your GBA games? You know you can still get a DS Lite if you absolutely must play GBA games. Or you can use your GBA. Nintendo gave 5 years of continued GBA support after they could have simply moved on. GBA support was only officially discontinued in 2009.. And how does the eShop MAKE you pay for anything, dipshit?
I like digital virtual console sales. They allow me to get classics that I missed the first time around., Like Kirby’s Dream Land 3 on SNES. That came out in 1997 in the midst of the N64’s rise. IT deserved a second chance and it got one.
This is why I don’t like the homebrew scene. It’s full of pirates or full of script kiddies with huge senses of entitlement. Why don’t you guys go put Linux on something else?
(Man you must really hate the PSVita then, as it isn’t even backwards compatible with PSP games, which will still be on shelves when it comes out.)
The PSV is backwards compatible :l
Heck, some games will even work with the second joystick making them even better.
How come Nintendo consoles and PC gaming have the worse case of hacking and cheating? If the Wii U ends up a hackers paradise I will be mad D:
Nintendo consoles? I don’t think hacking groups have ever targeted Nintendo. It’s the consoles with games that are big on online play like CoD that get hacked a lot, basically every console but Wii…. but that’ll change when the U comes out, so I’m hoping the U has one heck of a security.
Nintendo was hacked last May/June. It was when all the hackings started though, Sega, Nintendo, Lots of company’s hacked primarly game companys. Worst hit was Sony.
But in game hacking, Nintendo is not really targeted. PC gaming has the worst hackings.
Me only want REGION FREE!!! SAME WITH WII U! PLEASE NINTENTO! :(
Or some extra (soft/hard)ware that we can load import games..
My Wii got Homebrew Channel just for GeckoOS.. :(
What is this about I don’t get it?
I’m glad (somehow). In my country (Philippines), games and consoles are awfully overpriced. So, for a penniless like me, I’ve no choice but to buy this.

Live in the same neighborhood as the person above me; I’ve known about this since Zelda OoT was newly released.
Took more than expected. Not that it’s a good thing, but this *will* always happen. In every single console.
Now we just need some games worth er… backing up
This was going to happen eventually, every popular system/handheld I can think of has been hacked in some form, no matter how hard the company tries to prevent it.
Jesus can’t anyone just stop being friggen cheap 3ds games aren’t that expensive I rarely have money buuut I always find ways to purchase my games either through trade or fuckin money! Yesterday I got over 70$ through trade at a game store called play n trade! So if you can’t get it What ever just stop you fuckin cheap pieces of shit!!!
maybe this will make owning a 3ds worth it. lord knows the ambassador program is trash…. not to mention the weak ass games that are out. re:mercs was a great weekend….and zelda was awesome the first time i played it in 1998. now with the second stick add on coming out im tempted to sell it. but if i can rip games for the 3ds then ill hold on to it…. still gonna get a vita.
I will never buy a 3DS unless it is hackable. FTW!!!!
I hacked your mothers vagi, i didn’t even buy
want to destroy piracy? $ 5-10 per game … Simple!
Just wanted to throw in that this is fake, you can find all the proof of this on legitimate hack sites if you look,
