3DS Firmware 11.6 is out, does not seem to impact hacks
Nintendo published a new firmware for the 3DS a few hours ago, system firmware 11.6. The official changelog tells us we’re getting more stability, which is extremely exciting.
Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience
According to multiple sources including Smealum, this update does not seem to impact homebrew entry points and hacks.
GerbilSoft says on GBATemp:
NTRBootHax, Luma3DS, and Boot9Strap STILL WORK with 11.6. It is SAFE to update if you have B9S installed.
As always though, we suggest to update only when it’s been 100% confirmed that there is no impact on your homebrew. Until then, we always recommend to stay on a lower firmware as much as possible.
