now that I don't need to reverse sha-256 hashes, I'm working on a different kind of program to run on a single core of my machine to prevent it from crashing
@SuricrasiaOnline what if you continuously rendered big buck bunny on the core to make the world's largest collection of big buck bunny renders
@SuricrasiaOnline well there's most likely some magic bytes in the NDS/DSi ROM header that'd enable a 3DS ntrboot ( https://3ds.hacks.guide/ntrboot.html , basically the boot rom, when pressing a magic key combination while powering up, will try to boot directly from the game cart w/o much security checks instead of to the system menu, depending on those magic values)-style jailbreak on the DSi, too
and bruteforcing those values would be nice due to the lack of ARM9 bootrom dump.
except, this has a few problems:
* you need a console unit to test it on, with extra hardware modifications
* you need to boot the console to test it, so you get ~1 try/second
* the search space is a kilobyte (the size of a ROM header) or so in size (unless someone tells me how exactly ntrboot works on the 3DS, then it can probably be narrowed down)
