Quote from: Cyneprepou4uk on June 25, 2019, 10:59:21 AMI think the best you can do is install a hex editor app and poke around in bytes. You probably will be able to change some text and (maybe) palettes, but that's it. So good luck with that.Better sell your iphone and buy a pc.
Quote from: Arceus I on September 21, 2022, 11:17:49 AMI know Windows & Linux are the essential parts of a Romhackers career, but what about Androids? The still popular devices that are like miniature computers?
Quote from: Nintenja on September 22, 2022, 04:26:03 AMUnipatcher and rom patcher js can help you put together patches in android...but all the best utilities are on pc sadly..maybe the future will change this..there are pc emulators for android..but when my pc broke (I got it fixed)I couldn't figure out how to get one working.
Quote from: FAST6191 on September 26, 2022, 01:08:40 PMWhy would the community move to (moving implies abandoning a previous one) or otherwise embrace Android? It has not even embraced Linux yet.Android is a restrictive environment (unless you further want to reduce it to all that have root), offers no great advantages as far as power (indeed probably several disadvantages on the multitasking front), most of the fun things are paid for (granted not as bad as OSX and IOS) especially on the emulator side of things, is annoying to use unless you otherwise get a keyboard added on and at that point you are back at basically a laptop, lacks all the nice legacy tools (of which there are dozens with little hope that some kind of compatibility layer), needs different approaches to coding for the most part...About all it has it some try hards/masochists want to use it as a their primary computing platform and it is marginally more portable than an X86 laptop for those that want to do hacking on their lunch break and don't want to break out the personal laptop.
Quote from: Arceus I on September 26, 2022, 04:42:56 PMYeah...Most Androids now have a built in keyboard. No external keyboard needed.
Quote from: JP32 on September 26, 2022, 05:02:43 PMYeahhh have fun coding with tiny touchscreen keyboard
Quote from: PowerPanda on September 26, 2022, 09:34:06 PMThe thing to realize about the romhacking community is that a lot of the people who put out romhacks here are ALSO the people who wrote the tools for their games. They wrote those tools for the computer that they were working on, and then were kind enough to share those tools with the community at large. It is rare that a game has enough of a modding scene to create tools that anyone can use. I know of only a handful of games that fall under that umbrella, and each of them has their own dedicated hacking website.So if you want the romhacking scene to have more options with Android, the answer is, whether you like it or not, to find the game you want to hack, code a utility to do it in Android, and release it to the community. Once you have created enough apps, you'll start to build momentum around the Android hacking community, and as Android-exclusive users join the romhacking ranks, they will create more.
Quote from: Arceus I on September 21, 2022, 11:17:49 AMHow do I do Romhacks on an Android?I know Windows & Linux are the essential parts of a Romhackers career, but what about Androids? The still popular devices that are like miniature computers? Are there hacking tools that can be used on these devices? I know that I can PLAY Romhacks on such devices, but not CREATE them (At least, as far as I know). So if that essentially blocks me from creating Romhacks, then we might need to add utilities that work on these too.Just asking a very important question regarding phones.
Quote from: Arceus I on September 26, 2022, 12:06:48 PMNow how in the world would this happen in a "Reasonable Timeframe" when I have ideas that are yet to be unleashed?
Quote from: Arceus I on September 26, 2022, 09:50:51 PMGood concept, but I don't know how to create such things, the closest I have is Lucky Patcher...
