    Does anyone know what the firmwares for the new Japanese n3ds consoles are? I'm looking into updating from an o3ds to the n3ds and I like the color schemes of the new releases.

    Ok, I found out what the firmware is on the pink/white, lime/black.

    The firmware is 10.7.

    Edit: I confirmed myself what the firmware for these 2 new devices. The firmware is 10.7. not 11 as previously thought.

    Technically they are hackable with a hardmod or freakyforms deluxe.

    Well, they would be hackable with a hardmod AND freakyforms deluxe, if FFD had a physical release in Japan. So, right now, the only way to downgrade them is hardmodding + CN (or OOT + Powersave).

    Holy s**t, we are already getting consoles with 11.0.0-33 on them?

    I really should buy one ASAP. Though I'll def look into getting my N3DS hardmodded, so it being on 11.0.0-33 won't be a real issue for me.

    Freakyfarm will not allow you to downgrade 11.xxx. You hardmod, patch files to 10.7 firm, than use CN, browswerhax or OoT to launch homebrew. Native firm being back on 10.7 allows for arm9 access / downgrade access.

    But even with just homebrew access the 3DS is still hacked, right?

    Depends on what you want. Homebrew and arm9loaderhax / cfw are 2 entirely different things.

    Is there more than one report about these systems being 11.0? I'm still in the denial stage. :P
    Although it makes sense for Japan to get new firmwares sooner than USA/EUR given their close proximity to China.

    I have a Lime and a Pink unit, both bought Saturday in Tokyo. The firmware on both is 10.7.0-32, maybe I got lucky...

    I hope that's the case. I have one on its way within the next week.

    I'm curious what your source for this was? I happened across an eBay posting (I think) that implied it was 11.x but when I read more carefully it was actually that it was able to *upgrade* to 11.x.

    I asked the retailer who was selling the Pink/White Japanese N3ds. Though he didn't actually show me the firmware just told me it was the latest. As I am not Hong Kong Native, he probably just told me "yes yes" to get rid of me.

    That doesn't mean anything. He might assume that you are looking for the latest when you asked about it hence he told you yes hoping that you'll buy it.

    He knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. Everyone in HK asking about firmware does one thing. I remember when I asked for a PSP the first thing he told me was he won't hack it. I didn't even ask about that.

    But yes, my knowledge of the pink/white, lime/black n3DS firmware is only secondhand. But at least there is hope that it might not be 11.

    Great news everybody,

    I too the plunge and bought the newest n3ds (Pink/White)

    It is indeed 10.7 not 11 as the guy mentioned.

    Great to hear! The one I'm waiting for is a gift and I'm sure the recipient will at least want to play non-Japanese games :)

    Another set of limited edition 3DS LL in November:
    http://nintendoinquirer.com/blog/2016/06/15/japan-getting-two-limited-edition-new-3ds-ll-consoles/

    These will definitely come with 11.0+ right out of the box

    The HK customs have been cracking down on console piracy in the last few years (chipped Wiis were used to sold everywhere). Now these shops either won't have hacked consoles for sale or only sell them to familiar customers in order to avoid being ratted out by undercover officers.
