Nintendo 3DS Hacks and MODs
Q: Is the 3DS vulnerable to hackers?
A: Yes, it can be hacked.
Q: How does hacking a 3DS work?
A: Buy a flash card, any of the carts listed below will do. However, it would be better if you can find a Supercard DSTWO if you want to use a 3DS flashcart though the other cards listed below can help you do the hacking though.
Q: Can you explain what a flashcart is?
A: It is a device that works like a DS game cartridge and it can be used to save commercial games and homebrews. It usually needs a microSD car to work.
Q: Is there a device that can be used to run 3DS ROMs or game files?
A: No, there isn’t.
Q: Can I subject the 3Ds for a softmod?
A: No, you cannot.
Q: With the help of a flashcart, can the 3DS be bricked by Nintendo?
A: No, it can’t though there is a slim chance that it may happen but do so at your own risk.
Q: What flash cards can be run on 3DS?
A: 3DS is only compatible with flashcarts that can be updated using the DSi.
Q: Can you explain how the DS-Mode hack functions?
A: It works just like the DSi carts. It gets through the flashcart block by using a legit game’s header.
Q: Are DS carts usable on 3DS?
A: Some flash cards do work after an update. There is a list of carts above that can run on 3DS. Only the CycloDS iEvolution works on 3DS even without an update.
Q: When is a hacked version of the 3DS-Mode available?
A: The 3DS already hacked the DS-Mode a day after it was released in the Japanese market. However, there is still no definite date on when the 3DS-Mode will be available from hackers.
Q: How will I know when the 3DS-Mode is already hacked?
A: Update yourself by regularly checking GBAtemp. Read the User Submitted News section, this section on 3DS Hacking or the frontpage for any progress on the 3DS hacking.
Q: Where is there an available 3DS game ROM?
A: I cannot give you the game file. Some games have been thrown out by LGC.
Q: How can I retain a save-file from my legit and original 3DS game card?
A: One approach would be with the aid of an NDS Adapter Plus and a downloaded new version of the NDS Adapter Plus 3.01 firmware. Put the 3DS card inside the NDS Adapter Plus and press “Back Up.”
An alternative would be to use the DSaveManager from Crediar. However, this is only compatible with DS Phat or Lite and it only works if you insert the board into the DS card case after you open the card using a knife or cut off the edge of the 3DS game card.
Q: Are there new claims about the 3DS from the team of developers?
A: The Supercard team stated that even if they designed the 3DS with anti-piracy mechanisms, some people may still find a way to workaround this protection using the Supercard DSTWO’s embedded CPU.
