3DS and 2DS homebrew via 8F in Virtual Console editions?
« on: February 15, 2018, 08:00:08 am »
I know this isn't exactly the right place to put this, but it's the best section I could find. If anyone knows the right category for this, please tell me or move it there.

Anyways, some of you who have watched TheZZAZZGlitch may recall them making a video on 8F arbitrary code execution in other games. Well, I just had a thought - is it possible to homebrew the 3ds/2ds by doing the same thing but on the virtual console editions? Just an idea, but it would be quite interesting to experiment with.

There are emulator bugs that allow for potential emulator escape ;)

What Wack0 said is true. But in regards to cartswap, no.

Cartswap works by cutting off contact with the ROM, letting the user load a new one, and booting into the new cartridge. However, this is all done within the system itself. Alone, you cannot use this to escape VC itself.
