    Not exactly homebrew, but you can make it so online counts as StreetPass using HomePass to get hits from anyone else using this and it's also great for playing games with only local multiplayer if you have no one to play with (eg: MH3U), so I'll refer you to this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-have-a-homemade-streetpass-relay.352645/ Very simple, but will require some work and an unused wireless network adaptor (eg: you have 1 connected and get your connection through cable or you have 2 and you have 1 of the two for internet while the other one isn't doing anything).

    Sorry, missed that, but I thought there were also private MAC addresses to set it to so it connects to fan-made ones, or that also required the main servers to be up? I haven't used HomePass in 4 years or so I think so don't really remember much, just that it was an available option for it. Scratch my last post then, don't know how to go about it nowadays.

    while we could use private MAC's it still relied on the Master Server,

    I can't even streetpass with my sons or daughters anymore since the shutdown. :(

    The ideal would probably be some sort of PC application that will make a 3DS think your wireless router is just another 3DS. But I doubt we should expect anything like that anytime soon.

    Local StreetPass is unaffected by the server shutdown. I streetpass between my two 3DS units all the time, and I still pick up local ones on occasion.
