I've just discovered this forum, and it looks exciting - especially as it's having a reverse-engineering section! My current impression was that the 3DS rev-engineering scene didn't exist yet (or that it was hiding in chatrooms). Now that a 3DS-dev forum exists, I really wonder what will happen in future!

As by now, I am only having a DSi console (no 3DS yet), and I am mostly interested in low level hardware stuff (not higher level 3DS operating system stuff, although, if the low level hardware isn't accessible, then one would probably need to deal with the OS).

Concerning DSi hardware: Is it allowed to post DSi stuff on 4dsdev? Asking because there isn't any DSi-dev forum yet, and understanding the DSi hardware would certainly help understanding the 3DS hardware. So I am hoping that DSi reverse-engineering might be welcome, too?

If yes, maybe adding some sentence "forum dedicated for 3DS and DSi" on the mainpage would do it (such a sentence might be nice anyways, since the current headline doesn't even mention the 3DS yet).
For a sepatate DSi section, that might be nice, too. On the other hand, many of the 3DS and DSi stuff is overlapping, for example, I wouldn't know where to ask questions about 3DS-vs-DSi compatibility... is that a 3DS topic or a DSi topic?

PS. there a few people interested in a DSi forum, see http://gbatemp.net/threads/nintendo-dsi-section.393580/ - the gbatemp admins don't seem to like the idea though, and a "dev" forum would be better than a "consumer" forum like gbatemp anyways.

I too like DS reverse-engineering / virtualization, so I would like to talk about stuff like this and not only 3ds-only related stuff.

So I support this thread idea

Wtf, my reply did not appear. Whatever.

I'm sure the site owner has nothing against this :) I would like if a stable and fast MMC driver would come out of this for DSi and 3DS.

There is a 3DS reverse engineering "scene" although most of it is focused on the OS. If you're interested in the architecture, there are some interesting but incomplete wiki-pages that might be worth checking out. For example:

http://3dbrew.org/wiki/IO_Registers
http://3dbrew.org/wiki/Memory_layout#ARM11_Physical_memory_regions
etc..

Sure. Considering the DSi is like a "training before 3DS", they share some hardware (like the DSP), so any DSi work may be useful for the 3DS too.

I might change the forum descriptions and all to reflect that, too.


As far as 3DS reverse-engineering goes, most of it is documented on 3dbrew.
