Hackers hint at new 3DS exploit in one of the games from Humble Bundle’s ongoing sale
Developer Daz Jones, one of the members of 3DS hacker group Salthax, strongly hinted on twitter today that the ongoing Humble bundle 3DS sale contains a game that could be used for a future 3DS exploit.
Salthax, specifically developer ShinyQuagsire, recently released 2 exploits for the 3DS: SuperMysteryChunkHax, and (v*)hax. Both of these are “secondary” exploits. This means they cannot
run be installed on their own, and need a “primary” exploit (such as browser hax or cubic ninja) in order to be installed. As such, both exploits have received limited attention from the scene, since they’re not necessarily bringing more people to the scene.
The hinted exploit is apparently going to be once again a “secondary” exploit, most likely savegame based, and in order to install the savegame, one will have to be running a “primary” exploit.
The Humble Bundle is sold on a “pay what you want” basis, however Daz Jones seemed to imply that the exploit is in one of the games of the upper tier, the games that one gets only if they pay more than the average. The exploited game could be Retro City Rampage, Shantae and the pirate curse, or, more likely, Rhythm thief & the emperor’s treasure, Citizens of Earth, Nano Assault EX, or Super Street Fighter IV.
The humble bundle is a super cheap way to increase your selection of 3DS or Wii U games, and I would advise against purchasing those games for the sole purpose of “getting” the exploit, given that nothing’s been confirmed at this point and, once again, this would still require a “primary” exploit to
run be installed.
