    Yes it can. It could be fixed with a MCU firmware update that causes the MCU to inject extra verification code into the boot process via DMA (i.e. a DMA attack by Ninty).

    I'm actually not up to speed on how it works, but I strongly doubt that - doesn't it involve exporting a DSiware, bruteforcing its encryption and signing, then replacing it with homebrew?

    Nothing that was changed in this update could influence the verification of software being installed, nor how they are verified before run

    How about update the MCU firmware so that it injects extra verification code into the boot process? In other words, a fix implemented in the same way a DMA attack is done.

    Well aside from the very high risk of bricking even "legitimate", stock systems.

    I just visited the SSLLabs SSLtest on my 11.9 3DS browser. Says it supports TLS 1.2 now.

    In a couple of days you will find out if you can but most likely you will still be able to. Also you're saying you already updated it to 11.9? I guess you should start by turning of wifi or automatic updates. This is all explained in the different guides like 3ds.hacks.guide

    Note for Nintendo: No need for me to update because my 3DS is more stable than NES

    Constant updates with no new features or content is just clinging on for as long as it can.

    I wonder what has been broken on this update and patched.

    You can downgrade... after you mod your system (not that it would bring any practical advantages in any case, neither does 11.9 bring any disadvantages to modding)

    3DS doesn't have automatic updates, only automatic update downloads, the user must manually confirm them

    Assuming they didn't patch it which their are no reports yet so if you don't mind spending a few extra bucks on a flash card then you can try the ntrboot method: https://3ds.hacks.guide/ntrboot

    I just updated my Japanese new 3ds ll to 11-9-0-42j to see if sky3ds plus works on it or not.

    Sky3ds plus is working on it.

    Thanks @Galaxy☆Guy
    Ich prefer Not to buy any additional stuff but thank you anyway!!

    Thanks @Ryccardo !
    So could you explain how i can downgrade to 11.8?
    Or since a lot of users Report everything to Work Just fine isn't it possible to homebrew even with the New 11.9?
    I found a videoguide to bomebrew with the 11.8 firmware that seemed legit but since the 11.9 i don't quite want to try it out until confirmation came that it does or doesn't Work.
    Thank you!

    The console must be stable af now

    The update must block some exploits, but sure, the console is still being supported and games are still being released for it, so there could be real fixes and tweaks other than "plugging holes"
