    If this topic is still stickied, it is still relevant, even if it has not been updated for a while!
    Don't look at the date of this post!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is a simple topic to answer some simple questions: "Is there any progress?", "When will the 3DS be hacked?" ....

    The answer is: 3DS with System version 4.1.0 to 4.5.0 can be hacked.
    All other System version can't be hacked.


    There are two main hacks:
    • Hardware: Flashcarts companies focusing on piracy and ROM playing,
    • Software: Legal and open sources releases from community hackers and developers, focusing on Homebrew.


    Hardware

    Few flashcarts for the 3DS ROMs has been released:
    • Gateway 3DS
    • R4i 3DS Gold DELUXE
    • 3DS Link
    • Orange 3DS
    • MT-Card
    It can play the currently dumped 3DS ROMs, but no homebrew.

    All other flashcarts are NDS Flashcarts which can only play normal DS ROMs on the 3DS.

    More info: Comparison of Nintendo 3DS Flashcarts.
    You are encouraged to read the FAQ and the stickied topics which already contains all the answers.

    Software
    Homebrew is now possible without flashcarts thanks to Fierce Waffle's ROP Loader.

    Homebrew development and release thread.

    Other developers are also working on developing a 3DS homebrew environment, but didn't release their work yet.


    Emulator
    There are no emulators which play 3DS ROMs. Any 3DS emulators you find are fake.
    There are emulators which emulates the ARM chipsets and let you load some 3DS homebrew (and maybe 0's key re-signed ROMs).
    - Citra
    - 3DMoo
    - TronDS


    That is all the available information at the moment.
