Latest 3DS Hacking Scene: FW 11.11.0-43 Relesed
On 26th August, Nintendo updated their 3DS firmware to the newest 11.11.0-43, however, don’t like as usually, this new System version Only goes for All EUR consoles, including the 2DS, 3DS XL, NEW 3DS XL and NEW 2DS XL. Why?
3DS firmware 11.11.0-43E is basically to ‘remove’ the option of using Credit Cards on eShop when located in EU or UK.
Due to new privacy laws in EU, starting in September, systems which are not 100% secured to latest security standards for Credit Cards, like for example the 3DS or Wii U, can no longer be allowed to use them directly online, if you wish to purchase eShop items now via CC, you will have to do so online via a PC linked to your Nintendo Account
Plus, Version number 11.11.0-43’s patch notes are (drum roll, please) as follows:
Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience
More stability as every time’s update. And according to the most famous 3DS hacker Smealum, it doesn’t look like anything significant for homebrew and cfw on the 11.11.0-43 FW.
And, the usual rules still apply: while CFW users can upgrade freely, you are advised to wait until the all-clear is given before doing so if you’re relying on *hax payloads or other entrypoints – especially considering the new firmware doesn’t introduce any new features or functions.
However, if you are the flashcard user or you plan to buy a compatible cart to boot CFW on 3DS via NTRboot Method, you are Totally safe to do that.
All the following flash carts are confirmed working perfectly on 3DS V11.11.0-43E and below version. The NTRboothax or Magnethax(it is an exploit of bootrom) can work on All 3DS System versions.
