7.0.0

5,157 bytes added, 3 July
PM: wow I misinterpreted this, lol.
==FIRM==
All files under RomFS were updated.
 
====Package1ldr====
Since [[6.2.0]], the following was changed (besides the usual constant changes for new fuse burnt, incremented version, etc):
* A function that returns a hardware type now returns 0xF whenever it would previously have returned a non-zero value.
** Code validating hardware type has been simplified accordingly.
* The function validating the bootloader version by parsing the BCT no longer hardcodes the BCT address as 0x40000100, and instead adds a relative offset to a BCT address specified via argument.
* The [[TSEC Firmware#SecureBoot|SecureBoot TSEC firmware]] was updated to prevent SMMU virtualization attacks.
 
====NX_BOOTLOADER====
NX bootloader was updated, and is now stored compressed. Before executing, a small stub now uncompresses the bootloader to 0x40004000, size 0x1C000.
* The 0x100 region used for NX_BOOTLOADER <-> SecureMonitor communications is now 0x40000000 instead of 0x40002E00.
* Memory permissions for .rodata have been fixed, it is now correctly mapped R-- instead of RRW-W.* Sealed old keys are now stored in the auxilliary data page (0x1F01FA000) instead of in .rwdata.** An 0x10 block in the auxilliary page is now used for intermediate key derivation, instead of a block on the stack. This block is only memcleared once at the end, instead of after every time it is used.* TrustZone code is now cleared from IRAM before signalling to NX_BOOTLOADER that the SecMon is awake.* A function for getting HardwareType based on fuses now returns 0xF whenever it would previously have returned a non-zero value.** This function is called by [more details [SMC|smcGetConfig]] when ConfigItem_HardwareType is passed in.* Warmboot.bin has been moved again, and is now copied from 0x4003E000 size 0x17F0 instead of 0x4003D800 size 0x1FF0* Code configuring what peripherals to be filled set secure-world only now assumes that the code is a retail unit.** GetRetailType() is still called (though result is discarded), this probably means they now have compile-time switches for retail vs dev. ====Warmboot====* The firmware revision magic was changed from 0xA8 to 0x129. ====FIRM Sysmodules====All FIRM sysmodules were updated. The only FIRM sysmodules with IPC changes were [[Filesystem_services|FS]], [[Process_Manager_services|pm]], and [[NCM_services|NCM]]. Specific diffs for a few sysmodules are below: =====[[Process Manager services|PM]]=====Resource limit initialization was changed:* PM now dynamically calculates the number of extra threads available in laterthe kernel's slab heap compared to the amount it is expecting.** A [[Process Manager services#BoostApplicationThreadResourceLimit|new command]]was added to pm:shell to make these extra threads available to applications, on retail this doubles the number of threads creatable to 0xC0. =====[[Filesystem services|FS]]=====* Device Address Space initialization for nn::sdmmc is now handled differently.** Previously, the shared SDMMC device address space handle was attached to all devices during global init prior to service registration.** Now, the handle is attached to specific devices during their relevant DeviceAccessor::Initialize() call, which only happens when the relevant device is ready for access.* (Many other differences not yet reversed/noted here.)
==System Titles==
All titles were updated, except: "Chinese and Korean dictionaries", "European English and Japanese dictionaries", EULA, "Blacklist URL", "Dummy file", "Hoag system config", and flog.
 
RomFS:
* Localization data etc was updated in applets, likewise for 8XX titles.
* CAction title: new directory "/table" was added. The new file "/table/431FA316E20941779452DD0EBFA05E0E/ApplicationId" contains string "0x01003a400c3da000" - "YouTube".
* Web-applets were updated. "/whitelist/WhitelistEc.txt" in LibAppletShop was updated: <nowiki>"^https://([0-9A-Za-z\-]+\.)*eshop\.nintendo\.net($|/)" was changed to "^https://([0-9A-Za-z\-]+\.)*nintendo\.net(/|$)"</nowiki>.
* ControllerFirmware: "/ukyosakyo_ep2_ota.bin" and FirmwareInfo.csv were updated (main firmware for JoyLeft/JoyRight).
* Titles BrowserDll and AvatarImage were updated.
* Both bad-word-list titles were updated.
* HID-sysmodule RomFS added new file: "/ftmFwUpdate: NTD_4CD_xxxx.fts256".
 
NPDM:
* New services were [[Services_API|added]].
* bluetooth-sysmodule now has access to svcCreateSharedMemory.
* HID-sysmodule now has access to new service usb:qdb.
* ldn-sysmodule now has access to service psc:m.
* account-sysmodule: now has access to service npns:s.
* ns-sysmodule: service access to prepo:s was replaced with srepo:u. FS permissions now have bitmask 0x0000000400000000 set (CanFormatSdCard).
* nfc-sysmodule: now has access to services: psm, i2c, and gpio.
* am-sysmodule: now has access to services lm and nvgem:cd.
* btm-sysmodule: now has access to service srepo:u.
* npns-sysmodule: main thread stack size changed from 0x8000 to 0x4000. Removed service access for acc:aa and acc:u1, added access to pm:bm.
* glue-sysmodule: now has access to service srepo:u.
* Various applets now have access to service "banana" (which still doesn't exist on retail).
 
=== [[USB_services|usb-sysmodule]] ===
* New services / commands were added.
* The codebin now has .json data embedded in the codebin for [[USB_services#HidGamepad|HidGamepad]] USB-devices.
 
=== [[Account_services|account-sysmodule]] ===
* Various .text changes. Besides those:
* The "v4-<hexstr>" URLs were changed to "v5" URLs.
