It seems the hacker neimod have made some interesting progress on the 3DS hack and he now has a full control of an unmodified console in kernel mode. This hack is based on a game hack and according to him can be patched very easily.

[07:51:56] [@neimod] full control of the 3ds in kernel mode (arm9 & arm11) from an unmodified 3ds :]
[07:53:03] [EdTheNerd] HHNNNNGGGGG
[07:53:05] [@neimod] the sky is the limit!
[07:53:17] [EdTheNerd] Gib romz plox
[07:53:50] [@neimod] in theory it’s possible
[07:53:52] [EdTheNerd] Now then, make it do somethig cool, while displaying GBA TEMP BLOWS somewhere on the screen
[07:54:04] [EdTheNerd] Then enjoy the show
[07:54:36] [EdTheNerd] « neimod: in theory it’s possible »

[07:55:59] [jse] nice work neimod
[07:56:02] [jse] congrats
[07:57:34] [@neimod] unfortunately, we are elitist bastards who never share anything, so kiss that warez loader goodbye
[07:58:01] [EdTheNerd] So not to try to pry to much info here, but is this something you need a specific game/app for?
[07:58:31] [EdTheNerd] Should i by buying all of the eshop now?
[07:58:35] [@neimod] it’s based on a specific card-based game
[07:58:39] [EdTheNerd] Nice
[07:58:58] [EdTheNerd] How patchable would you say this is?
[07:59:06] [@neimod] very easily

[07:59:46] [EdTheNerd] Congrats!
[08:00:10] [@yellows8] SD version can be used too but ofc one has to run code first for that.
[08:00:19] [EdTheNerd] Now take careof that pesky region lock!
[08:00:33] [EdTheNerd] Could such a thing be posible with this now?
[08:01:55] [@neimod] yes, with full kernel control anything is possible
