    Well, looks like Nintendo followed the same strategy for Youtube, when you try to access the browser and you haven't updated it will force you to update.

    Happened to me and some other users. (I'm on 9.9)

    Can you take a screenshot of the update nag that appears when you try to open the browser?

    Between insane and insecure
    It may be fixable by redirecting the DNS, like how TubeHAX used to work

    It's basically the same box that pops up in YouTube.

    I just used the browser on 4.4 lol

    Pretty sure it's not "dead on any firmware"

    RIP. Thank god I got themehax working. Running 9.9.

    This was a pretty solid play by Nintendo. Waiting till a version that'll convince people to update to come out to patch a vulnerability and get people in the transition.

    They probably added this "feature" to the 9.9 and up browsers.

    Nope.

    Anybody on 9.8 checked if they can still run browserhax? This happened to me last night when updating from 9.8 -> 9.9 via Zelda.

    Maybe someone can figure out how to launch it from HBL with FW spoofing?

    Imagine.

    "In order to use Themes, you need to update to the latest system software."
    "In order to play the Legend of Zelda: OoT, you need to update to the latest software."
    "In order to go to the home menu, you must update to the latest software. Don't have the internet? Go f**k yourself."

    F**k man. They're worse then Apple with their iOS patching and Applications that won't work with JBing (Most TV apps).
