    Hey guys,

    how can I stop the annoying 11.3 update notification popup from happening sometimes when I power on my n3ds ? I've searched and can't seem to find a clear answer.

    Any help would be much appreciated !

    Um, no.

    OP, If you want that pop-up removed, you need to enter recovery mode.

    To do so, hold A+R+L+Up(DPad) while booting, and press cancel.

    Though, this is temporarely. You'll need to disable Spotpass updates in system Settings in order for it to go away fully.

    Couldn't you just turn off the wifi?
    If you have luma with a9lh you can just update.

    Seriously i was about to suggest that until i saw your post. :P

    Although yeah just turning off wifi is simple, for new 3ds is pretty bad if you wanna do that since it only can from home menu quick settings. Sometimes i wanna use wifi and forget to turn it on. But yeah is what works. Also i thought someone made a update suppressor, but i guess it don't work anymore? I usually delete the update data with fbi installer :P

    While installing A9LH isn't an answer to removing the popup, it is the right course of action either way. If he doesn't have A9LH then he should because if he ever updates on accident he's SOL. If he does have A9LH then the right course of action is to update because there is no reason to stay on 11.2 if you have A9LH.

    to be honest: there are reasons.
    nr. 1 reason is: 11.3 makes some games stutter. and no: luma3DS cannot simply fix that by increasing the clock speed.

    "some games"

    = Ocarina of Time

    ... during some cutscenes. (Or so I heard)

    Wow terrible.

    Yeah, but he's looking for an answer to his problem, something that A9LH won't fix.

    Typical. No one sticks to the question. Only this guy did. Good on you man.

    And to those suggested wifi disabling, no, wifi disabling won't do anything. You will still get the update nag. The above mentioned method is the only way (besides dumping and injecting in decrypt9) that can get rid of the nag.

    Whether he has or wants a9lh is off topic

    why not stay on 11.2 if you can? ctr-httpwn makes everything possible (pokebank etc.)!

    how if it is a FW flaw?

    spotpass updates would mean no spotpass functionality at all? not being able to meet other people?

    I mean if you prefer launching ctr-httpwn every time you want to do something that requires 11.3 then go ahead, do just that. To me that sounds extremely annoying when the alternative is to update to 11.3 which provides no negative downsides. "Stuttering" was mentioned here as a flaw in 11.3 in "some games", yet I've yet to see any conclusive proof that it affects anything other than OOT and even in OOT it supposedly only affects cutscenes.

    it certainly does. so if you do not want stuttering and keep online to a minimum (like most of us because let's be honest: the 3DS is not a real online handheld), then you can easily launch ctr-httpwn before your games and stuff.

    btw: if you keep your 3DS in standyby all the time, then ctr-httpwn is only needed once at boot. that's it.
