    Does anyone still use HomePass? Does it even still work? I've been able to do it manually before with an older Macbook, but I'd like an automated method. I've tried several scripts on my newer iMac and they don't work. I can dual boot into Windows 7, so anything that works with Windows or Mac would do.

    What do you need the streetpasses for exactly? That would be a better question.

    Fair point. Off the top of my head, I can think of bravely default's nemeses.

    There's a ton of games that lock content behind streetpass. If there's an easy way to instantly unlock streetpass content for games, I'd be interested in using it.

    I dont play that game so I dont know how streetpass is involved. Save editors and NTR plugins exist to get whatever is needed and I bet it can get whatever is needed for that game too.

    Yeah. You really don't play that game. You can't get them with NTR plugins and I'm not aware of such a save editor.

    And also, if you're into collecting mii plaza miis, you'll need streetpass.

    A lot of obscure/Japanese only games don't have editors for them, and it's a whole lot easier to just spoof streetpass than it is to mess with NTR cheats or Gateshark.

    The only reason I imagine wanting to collect Miis for the plaza is to get the achievements but those can be cheated for too.

    I'm not gonna put down homepass as an option but I've seen the homebrew scene evolve to a point where its not necessary anymore (at least for me.) I dont even recall the last time I used homepass.

    why
    I've been wanting to get homepass for a while.. and i've got a list of games that would be helpful to have homepass on,

    Mii Plaza (because I would like to collect miis.. and going outside isn't an option because there is nobody with a 3ds within 2 miles)
    Tomodachi Life
    Pokemon Shuffle/Rumble

    Smaller features like for kirby triple deluxe and robobot, Pokemiles, etc.

    I use a spillpass sd card image with my raspberry pi with an ethernet internet connection and using a wifi usb dongle as a "pass" and it cycles them automatically. it's great for accumulating miis for playing the streetpass fishing and zombie games.

    Nintendo Zone was disabled by Nintendo.
    HomePass still works. I'm using it o complete the panels on StreetPlaza.

    The homebrew scene on 3DS has noting to do with the Streetpass fuction, there is people still using it.

    Are you new to the 3ds homebrew scene? Because it's always the newer people that think Nintendo will force an update onto their system, or that they will somehow get banned simply for having emuNAND/CFW. I can guarantee nintendo zone would not force your system to update. At most it would download an update to the console, but it can't install it and the 3ds already does that by default when in sleep mode.
    So TL;DR you don't have to worry about a Nintendo Zone forcing an update to install on your 3ds, it simply can't happen at this point (maybe in the future, but I highly doubt it)

    Spillpass v2 still workas awesome (for those with a Rasberry Pi)
    What do i use streetpass for?
    - All Pokémon games (XY/ORAS/Shuffle/Rumble/etc...)
    - Etrain Oddyssey
    - StreetPlaza Games (puzzle pieces etc...)
    - To get special event Mii's (like the Gold pants E3 one that's now passing by)
    - Animal Crossing HHD
    - Tomodachi Life
    - Basicly any game that has a streetpass function :)

    No, i am not new, I just heard that the Nintendo zone DNS address cannot be changed, so blocking updates does not work, it was an old rumor I heard.

    Back before I had a9lh

    Only the dedicated app promo website, and only in the American region :)

    They technically can, but I doubt your local mcdonalds will give you their router's setup password lol
    (of course you can set a custom dns with homepass)
    (of course there's no reason to worry about "auto" updates)

    Chaldron's thread says to use MACycle now, and that thread says to create a wifi network named "Wi-Fi" but in all the tutorials I've ever read, including when I did manually a while back, "attwifi" or something like "NZone@McD" was recommended. So does MACycle require that specific name?
