As big a supporter of the *ahem* developer community as I like to call myself, time to be downright negative. This comes far too late to have any positive impact on the scene. We already have a myriad of devices that can run homemade applications and games with fewer restrictions, for less money, and usually come jammed with other features that somebody might actually utilize on a daily basis.

Every console is hackable. If developers were worried about piracy and hacking completely then they may aswell just not bother to create games in the first place.

Not sure if the 3DS is region locked but I imagine if they could some how turn off region locking in the master console then that would be the only benefit to main users. That is assuming of course that it doesn't impede on other services such as updates, and their store.

Region locking is stupid anyway.

Haha, and to think, just a little whiel ago, I was reading quotes from guys saying the 3ds was impossible to hack, and that we all might as well give up hoping to one day see emulators and such running on them.

It's only a matter of time before the chains of region locking haunts me no more.

And Developers won't get scared, their only available options are the lolvita and making $1 mini games on phones.

The vita homebrew scene has more potential if you ask me, plus they've already got an easy method of exploitation. It's just a shame there will never be a glasses free 3D pornodex

Yeah the vira has an easy way of exploiration, but that media hub makes it very difficult for them to hack it, since everything is done through it.

Good news for the region lock I guess. It shall be never more.

Good news for brewers, bad news for Nintendo...What does "kernel mode" do or, (can it achieve exactly)? Can I play all of 3DS games on R4??? I dont' think so...

It's basically system mode for this, so you can access and modify privileged files.
