    Current publicly available exploits
    - 4.1-4.5 3DS is 'hackable' i.e. 3ds rom flash carts and CFW if it is released

    Current known but NOT available exploits
    - 6.x is a WIP, Smealum has show a proof of the exploit here
    - So does this mean you should go out and purchase a 6.x console for roms? Not yet. Read this "ssspwn can not by itself allow piracy". Bottom line, wait and see what happens.
