    Alright, time for an update.

    I noticed a lot of worry about browserhax being blocked. It's partly true BUT, there is away to make it work.
    I am running an n3dsxl 9.9 and here is what I found with some experiments.
    If I load the browser AFTER,say, 20 seconds or so (after booting my n3ds) it gives me the update message.

    As some of you have already read before, I said that some dns changes would save your
    N3DS from the browser update message. Turns out I tried Google's DNS and browserhax still launched. Heck, I put my DNS settings to auto and browserhax STILL LOADED FINE!!

    I am almost sure of my initial theory right now. It seems that the N3DS speed is KEY here. Yes. N3DS loads everything faster and this doesn't give Nintendo a chance to catch you.
    So, my suggestion is that you load the browser as fast as you can. Maybe even install themhax as a backup plan if you have no payloads.
    Also, if your internet is slow, browserhax will crash sometimes.
    Some people say that they need DNS. Just in case you want it
    107.211.140.165 as primary DNS
    107.211.140.065 as secondary DNS
    OR you can try Google's
    008.008.008.008
    008.008.004.004


    PS: O3ds and 2DS users reported that this method is not working for them. Sorry to hear that...

    Holy shit it works. Thank you. Instantly installed Themehax.
    Took nothing but listening to exactly what you said.

    Start N3DS (10.0.27 ish) ->Change DNS as you said -> restart -> instantly open Browser -> it will take a bit to load or do anything BUT IT worked!

    First time it errored, second time it update messaged, third time was the charm!

    Eshop is attainable from the 2.5 hax

    Try to enable your internet at boot and load the browser as soon as you see the 3ds booting.

    I had the message and tried many times prior today. It worked for me just following what he said exactly.

    My N3DS XL = 10.1.0.27U, with message many times prior today.

    This can't work for those who updated with a 9.9 cart like Zelda (like me). :P
    It stubs your browser.

    I'm on a 10.1.0-27E N3DS that is affected with the message. Tried this out, loading the browser straight away at boot, page didn't load. Refreshed and it took a while, but it worked! Nice fix!

    Exactly what I did too and it worked :3

    Everyone make sure you immediately install themehax.

    Maybe this works only for N3DS? Tried this at my spare 2DS with no luck.
    Seeing the posts here, looks like only N3DS users were successful though...
