Homebrew with the latest Firmware (11.1.0-34U). Is it currently possible?

    Looking at home brewing my New 3ds XL. I put the Homebrew started kit files onto my MicroSD (through the wireless management option), however i've run into a snag. Most people seem to be using Cubic Ninja's for accomplishing Home Brew, but there isn't a local game shop that has a copy (even Game Stop). And the closest one that does have a copy, is a unreasonable amount of distance away (out of town in fact). I have heard that other games can be used in place of Cubic Ninja's, but do any of them work at the moment with the listed Firmware? I haven't found anyone yet saying if they do (more information and people saying that they don't work as of right now).

    Is this true?

    Current games that I have that also have worked with homebrew in the past are as follows:
    Both Pokemon Gen 3 Remakes (Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire)
    Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon
    Super Smash Bros.
    Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    Do any of these titles currently work on the the recent firmware (11.1.0-34U) when trying to use homebrew?

    Thanks!

    Thank you to you both! I was having trouble finding a straight answer with how many places out there say yes and no.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Actually looks like only one of the listed games I have will work. As the system I have has not been "exploited" yet.

    It says that Super Smash Bros 3DS will be the only one from my collection that will work. However the Github page says the hack is unstable. What are possible results that the unstableness can bring?

    If you have a Powersaves device, you can set up oot3dhax.

    Holy crap....
    So I am really confused about how you use the Smashhacks (See here: https://github.com/yellows8/3ds_smashbroshax)

    I am on step 3, but their instructions aren't adding up.

    "Determine which pcap in the "pcap_out" directory to use, see the "Usage" section."

    There is no "pcap_out directory" that is provided with the downloaded release archive. So what am I supposed to do?

    Okay, so after looking more I find out I have to get a copy of Linux to get the Smashhax to work. I am running Win10, so this is going to be a long process.
    At least it will be free.

    That and you could use it to install an entrypoint into one of your secondary exploit games. That way the whole smashhax thing is one time only.

    Install smashhax, then install secondary exploit, for example, steelhax (Steel Diver: Sub Wars). if you have a NNID. Note: You can't use the Homebrew oot3dhax installer on 11.0+, as the installer has not been updated to work on 11.0+ systems.

    Well you have ORAS, and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. All three of which are secondary exploit games. You could get into the homebrew menu with smashhax, and then install Supermysterychunkhax/basehax. And then rather than use smashhax every time, just use the secondary exploit game you set up.

    Ah okay. Got it. Just gotta find something that I can use to get the Wifi signal setup. Any suggestions? Something with a GUI would be preferred.

    BTW, if I use basehax, can I pop OR/AS out and pop in another game while I'm on the HBL (for things like svdt or JK)?
