User guide

How do watch videos?

This only applies to the normal version (not the local version).

First make a hotspot named "NintendoSpotPass1" (without "") using a phone or something else without password.

Get the SSL patch here (follow the readme).

Launch Nintendo zone, if it take a long time to try to load something (so official servers but it's down) then the hotspot worked.

Ignore the error and you can now watch videos.

The tutorial can also be found on the main page of SatellaZone by clicking the (?Help) button.
