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

don't ask why keeping a single core busy keeps my machine stable. my computer is haunted


the first core of every electric sand castle is haunted


(but I wish you luck in the endeavors you undertake! ^_^)

@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 ( , 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)
