    Famous 3DS hacker @smealum just posted a statement on his Twitter feed informing us that the game IRONFALL, currently available for free on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, contains security breaches potentially allowing anyone to run 3DS homebrew.

    When I mean anyone it really is anyone, including owners of the New 3DS, under any firmware version. See update below. Get it fast before Nintendo takes it down!

    Nathan Drake Update: It's being reported that the game will only actually boot on 9.5+ currently. Please keep that in mind.

    Ericzander Update: According to Smealum on Twitter, the Ironhax exploit will NOT require Cubic Ninja or Ocarina of Time. The game has been taken off of the European eShop.

    smealum Update: the Ironfall hack will result in the same possibilities as the Ninjhack - homebrew, regionfree, custom themes, tdvs...

    It's not actually on any firmware, because the game won't launch on a system below 9.5. So for once, it's firmware 9.5 and up.

    Is that totally true? No workarounds? If so, I'll edit the first post to reflect that information.

    Do we download the update, too? Dumb question, I think not, right?

    Edit: Just read on Reddit that you can download 1.1 and it won't hurt. But, I wouldn't bother.

    I think Smealum has a tweet where he says it doesn't matter if you download the update or not.

    You can delete the update if you end up not needing it via data management or what have you.

    That's because he hasn't done anything yet. Nothing has been released, thus there's no reason to pull it, nor any proof that he has done anything. There's no videos, no real pictures, nothing, just a twitter post. If Nintendo pulls it now and say, nothing happens and he releases nothing, they look the fools who fell for an empty threat.

    So, now people can run homebrew on the 3DS on any firmware? Even if one is running 9.9.0-26U? What??

    Well, that was already possible with Ninjhax 2.0.

    Nobody can do anything with anything yet. That's why I haven't jumped all over this. There is an incredible lack of information regarding what anybody may be able to do. All we know is that it apparently provides homebrew, and based on experience from others who can't launch it, it apparently only works on 9.5+. That is the extent of the information gleaned from a Tweet and people downloading the game.

    Alright, thanks for the clarification. Then basically, we know nothing but bare bones and just hypothetical stuff about it. Still interesting, though.

    From what I've read digging around in the thread, there are no workarounds. Unless you install some kind of cryptofixed CIA which doesn't exist yet to my knowledge.

    Edit: there might be a very long and arduous workaround, but since this hasn't been released yet no one can confirm whether or not it works.

    I went ahead and updated the first post with the relevant information. Thanks for confirming it.

    To be fair, he announced that on November 18th, in the middle of the week. I don't know how NoA operates, but most businesses either take the weekend off completely, or really slow down during the weekend hours. smea waited until Friday evening to announce this one. I'd expect Nintendo to pounce on it by tomorrow afternoon.

    What about using Ironfall on Rxtools/Gateway emunand? Would it be fine to download through there?
