Exploits updated to support 3DS 10.4, Nintendo releases Firmware 10.5
Developer Yellows8 has released an update to his popular BrowserHax and MenuHax 3DS exploits, to work with the recently released 3DS firmware 10.4. He also updated oot3DHax to work with firmware 10.4 (oot3DHax requires a legit copy of popular game The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D in order to run). These hacks work on the Old 3DS as well as the New 3DS.
BrowserHax will run directly in your 3DS Browser and is the most popular starting point. You can point your 3DS browser here to get started. You’ll then want to install MenuHax on top of it (Menuhax 2.2 can be downloaded here)
Once your 3DS is hacked, get the 3DS homebrew starter kit from Smealum’s site and install it on your 3DS.
It appears Nintendo just surfaced a new update, firmware 10.5.0, mere hours after Yellows8 published his updated hacks. Although this does not seem to impact the hacks, it’s recommended you stay away from that latest update, for now.
*ANOTHER* 3DS update just dropped. nothing important from the looks of it, but still wait before updating.
