Hackers are able to run custom code on the 3DS

3ds homebrew test

Hackers have made a huge advancement in the progress of hacking the Nintendo 3DS, they now are able to run custom code and they also have now full control of the kernel using a unmodified system. This means they are now able to run homebrew software, to pirate games and they are also able to remove the region lock.

The two hackers stated they have no interest in allowing people to use their hack to run pirated software. They are also saying this exploit can easily be patched by Nintendo, but they claim “with full kernel control, anything is possible.”

Nintendo has not yet said anything concerning this hack, it will be interesting to hear what they have to say about it and what they are going to do to prevent it. The hack is not yet available for the average consumer.
