    I tried to open ironfall recently (It is my first time using my 3ds in a while), and I got the usual "press Y to update press A to launch program anyway" message, and when I tried to launch the program, I got the message "You need to update this software before you can launch it". Is there any fix for this?

    There is no fix for this. Nintendo killed ironhax.

    Nope. Ironhax is dead.

    Don't update your 3ds. Try to get hax through other means.

    I assume because you havent used your 3ds in a while it is on hackable firmware

    I tried using menuhax, but that doesn't work either. I googled it and I couldn't find anything.I think my issue is that I started it while on the original white theme, so I tried deleting it and trying again with a basic blue theme, and that didn't work either.

    Well I think you can only install that after using browserhax which is down atm.

    Unless I've missed something Ironhax can only be broken by updating Ironfall itself or the system firmware. It doesn't just stop working.

    It died a long time ago because nintendo made it mandatory to update to play the game

    You can't downgrade easily with the latest firmware

    I can launch Ironfall / trigger the hax just fine.

    It's dead because there's no way to download an exploitable version of Ironfall anymore (that and because I think versions 1.0 and 1.1 were explicitly patched out from being run on more recent firmwares. In either case surely it's the installation of updates that broke the hax rather than Nintendo simply stopping it working...no?
