With the 3DS scene rapid growth and user involvement becoming a part of the community, we have a new update on current 3DS development!
With fully working implementations of the current arm9 and arm11 exploits safehax and fasthax respectively. The 3DS has once again reached its second major golden firmware age, the first being the infamous “frankenfirmware” version 9.2.
The recent releases have barely been about a week old, but thanks to an active community, development has gone from a proof of concept to an actual working exploit in the mere beta stage of fasthax! Prior to fasthax, waithax was used, but not everyone was patient enough to “wait”, thankfully multiple community members were successful in both developing and compiling successful implementations of fasthax. These have gone on to create great success for many users leading up to a stable release. Though not officially in the r phase, the exploit has now gotten to the phase of being added to Plailect’s guide!
Thanks to the amazing community and Plailect’s efficiency in guide updates, users no longer need to depend on dsiware games in order to CTRtransfer. Therefore all users can now skip the 9.2 downgrade and go directly to firmware version 2.1 and proceed on to arm9loaderhax. This being done without losing any data on your 3DS system and opening the device up for homebrew via the soundhax/fasthax/safehax combo.
So fair warning to all users, as always, proceed with caution and pay keen attention once following the guide, since various user errors have been documented, so it is advisable to follow the guide step by step very carefully. I, personally have not encountered any of these issues and having successfully hacked 4 N3DSXL systems within the last 2 days. Using waithax to begin with, up to the most recent fasthax/safehax combo.
Therefore if you wish to brave the down the path that leads to homebrew, you can do so by following the guide below:
