.text:80058250 00 10 82 05 STREQ R1, [R2]

0x803F6350 is what the pagepool changer usually patches, this is set to 6MB by default in the nk.exe. the problem is the real pagepool will never be 6MB, this code above dynamically decides if 4, 8, or 12MB it should be. (on my raphael it went for 12MB)

the elf patch is ok, as long as the STREQ on the last line doesn't execute, if it does, then copying the elf patch is not enough. so I suggest this patch:

STR R1, [R2] -> NOP (00 00 A0 E1)
and STREQ R1, [R2] -> another NOP (00 00 A0 E1)

after this pagepool changer should work nicely, and this is easier than that patching for Elf. once you patch the nk.exe like this, it will be fine.

on top of that, an entirely cosmetic patch: you can change the R1 contents too (similar to Elf patch) so KITL log will show the right value.

P.S: my guess is it only sets it to 4MB if ULDR is loaded. so usually not of importance.

Thanks for so deep info

The procedure is like the Elfin one...

I've tried the posted procedure for finding, and changing the Pagepool - but everytime i search for the hex string, i get no returned results. Am i doing something wrong?
