    if this is true then they finally grasped the idea of putting much features to cover up the security patches, unlike the past updates where nothing is changed but twilight hack is being removed and the next update where nothing whatsoever is changed again but fixes all trucha bugs

    its cool but the original author said some people were proven fake from these so, idk, ill update for this but someone should find a workaround for having the benefits of updating but not blocking homebrew

    I really doubt all those features are real. That would actually please the public, and we all know how Nintendo feels about doing the right thing.
