Interesting. Staplehax's libkhax is modified in how it gains SVC access, and I wanted to test it against other firmware versions... gotta debug it.


Would you be available for testing debug builds sometime?

Sure thing, it'll be my pleasure to test.

I have two old 3DS units to work with:
8.1.0-0U
9.2.0-20U

EDIT: With what firmware version did you get the current Staplehax build to work?

I'm not sure how important the SYSTEM_VERSION minor is, but I noticed that both the systems I tested were not specifically listed in the System version table of khaxinit.cpp

After my limited debugging abilities, I have determined that it hangs somewhere at:
Result KHAX::MemChunkHax::Step5_CorruptCreateThread()

Maybe this:
u32 writeaddr = GetMagicalPointer() + 0xF3D;
is version specific?

Could be that. Could as well be bad timing.


The whole thing wouldn't work on newer firmwares anyway. I haven't adapted srv:pm registration yet, and FS patching uses hardcoded offsets.

That's why it is a bad idea to build libhax into apps. That should be done externally.

The libkhax we're using in Staplehax is modified, too. With the original method, I kept running into icache issues.

Hi, nice forum here. Really fast and good looking. :)

My question, StapleButter or anybody, which is the correct .cro file to use with when building this for new3ds?
(edit, just saw that I don't need the .cro stuff to build staplehax, but could you still answer this so I can get ninjhax build correctly? thx)

The ones I see are:
cairo.cro.lex
oss.cro.lex
peer.cro.lex
static.crs
webkit.cro.lex

Which is the right one and is the .lex format something I have to decompress or process in some way?
Thanks!

I know zero about that shit. I haven't bothered to deal with it.

.lex, I found out, is not some official file format. It's Nintendo's own LZ77. They just made up the file extension for fun and confusion I guess.

.lex stands for, LZ77 EXtended
It can be decompressed with dsdecmp.

Is this project still active or has it been dropped?

I'm not even sure I want to continue tbh.


^That, and with the release of Ninjhax 2.0 and the upcoming Ironhax, it seems this project has been put aside for now. Hopefully when Ninjhax 2.0 source comes out, StapleButter might take interest in this project once again.

Ninjhax 2.0 makes this redundant, and even works on firmware versions Staplehax wouldn't have supported. The tiny range of potential cases supported by Staplehax made it ephemeral, basically "not worth the effort".


tl;dr Staplehax is dead. The code might be useful for some fancy shit though.

refactor is the key when a project-s purpose has been defeated. Reuse code
