    well guys i found a hole in the 4.2.0-9 E-shop
    note you can only get this to happen once

    was performed on a EUR 3DS

    well when you purchase Super Mario Land 2: 6 golden coins
    (currently on -20% off)
    purchase and perform the download
    when downloaded continue shopping
    then scroll down to what other people purchased when they purchased the game
    soon as you highlight the 3rd game down
    BAM!
    freeze
    top screen 3D goes completely wierd
    3D turns off
    all lines go everywhere
    console will not respond

    (wish i had taken a picture)

    after 30 seconds 3DS shuts off to the home menu and says that the e-shop had to be force closed
    and nintendo is sorry for the error

    can only be performed once per console as just viewing the what others downloaded and high lighting the apps will cause the freeze

    friend performed on his EUR console 4.2.0-9 also
    caused the same problem

    just thought id report :D

    That gives one shot to hack the 3DS, or yet another shot at being stupid.

    It's a scam to sell 6 golden coins

    yea because i would clearly post a scam

    its not a joke but this is possible worthwhile information in the right hands
    would love to see neimod post the info on what goes on in the ram
    seems like the 3DS OS picks up on it tho after scanning the ram and shuts it down

    I was joking saying that Nintendo released a fake glitch to entice sales

    well if people wanted to make anything of it for future i would say wait and dont purchase it as wont be able to cause an exploit if you do just to see the freeze
    wouldn't of posted if it didnt occur twice

    would be funny if we get a sudden 3DS update soon to fix e-shop stability

    On topic, its very interesting how you found this, what on earth led you to do it? O.o

    I can vouch for this happening on a US (CAN) 3DS. Though I can't remember exactly what prompted it, I'm sure it was around the time I bought Super Mario Land 2 at the discounted price. I managed to snag a picture I think, and I'll try and look for it.

    EDIT: Here's the photo.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Not useful at all if the 3DS can recover.

    It happens on all current versions of the eShop. As the OP stated, it happens when highlighting the last game on the list of suggested titles, regardless of what you're downloading. The 3DS force-closes the software and recovers itself after a few seconds (and an automatic restart). Nothing to see here...

    You also can do a glitch in Zelda: Link's Awakening DX to also force a software close and system restart.
    It's 100% reproducible, and before a certain firmware update, would lock up the system entirely.
    After the update, you get the forced close screen.

    It wasn't a firmware update, it was an update for the game itself.
    no?

    It happened to me too. I purchased Freaky Forms today and then my 3ds just crashed just like you said. Also i got the same warning message as in the screenshot.

    What if there is no third game? They must have heard of it and fixed it lol. I'll try a few other titles.
