    The 3DS is reaching its twilight years, with major first party releases slowing down. Updates to the system software are also becoming more and more uncommon. However, Nintendo sent out an update tonight, once more boasting about its beloved stability updates. This time, the claims were actually true, and the new update broke support with Luma3DS. Smealum, a major force in the scene is currently telling users to avoid updating at all costs, as doing so while having Luma will result in a "Failed to apply FIRM patch" error. For now, its recommended to stay below the new 11.8.0-41 update if your console is hacked, at least until there's a fix.

    If you have knowledge with compiling files, you can apply the fix, but for the entry level user, it's advised you wait.

    Interesting to see that Nintendo finally found a way around CFW users again. I have to wonder why they saved this update, of all updates, for the 3DS's EoL.

    It always was.

    Maybe you should have pushed this update before Warioware Gold came out?

    The Nintendo 3DS has reached a point where it is so incredibly stable that the laws of Space-Luma continuum break down.

    Preliminary tests show they didn't fix anything seedminer related.
    I still wouldn't update for at least another day though.

    Keep in mind also that we don't know if this fixes smea's new arm9 chain or not. Another good reason not to update yet.
