    I have an idea, that may just be stupid enough to work.

    Would it be possible to mirror the sites used for Browserhax on a local network, disconnect the actual internet from your router, and navigate to the local web page on the 3DS browser?

    My thoughts for this working is that the WLAN switch is on, and connected to an SSID, so the 3DS shouldn't complain about it. Meanwhile, since it's not actually connected to the internet, shouldn't that bypass the "phone home" FW check for 9.9 <-> 10.3 users?

    Nope. I tried this before. The browser sends the check to Big N and if it doesn't receive a response, it complains. (Connection is done through HTTPS so we can't hijack the connection.)

    nope. once the 3ds hears its browser is outdated it locks it down until it hears from the big N to unlock it.
    it does this through https. spoofing https is on the same level of difficulty of generating their super secret keys they use to make legit cias. No happening without quantum supercomputers

    Lol, I recently tried this a few days ago with my Synology NAS. Sad to say that it doesn't work, it's the browser man. Like Evil said, the browser sends a response to check for authenticity to Nintendo. The browser will just sit there and then errors out.
