    Ok so I've been out of the loop for a bit, there was a thread I saw that said 11.3 breaks homebrew but a fix was coming very soon.
    I hacked my 3ds using this guide https://3ds.guide/ on my o3ds, is it alright to update? I believe a9hl is part of the guide? I'm sorry if this question has already been answered, I've been trying to search through the forums and I got a little lost and I'm new to 3ds hacking.

    Yes you're safe to update via system settings :)

    Between insane and insecure
    Why does everyone want to install 11.3 so badly?
    But here's the break down
    RXTools is completely dead
    ReiNAND is dead for now, patch in the works
    Every other CFW works perfectly
    Luma3DS 6.6 and or Nightly works
    Corbenik's nightly works
    SaltFW nightly works
    CakesFW has a nightly that works.
    Homebrew launcher works.
    But seriously, there's literally no reason to update to 11.3 that badly. It introduces nothing new and you aren't missing out on anything interesting.

    except if you have poke bank having to use the ctr HTTP spoofer every time gets annoying.

    If you're like me and you still play Smash3ds online(Yeah I know I'm a loser for not playing the WiiU version) then the update is forced upon you. Thats why I was asking.

    The nag is annoying. I close it every time it comes up. Will update to 11.4 or 11.5 if necessary. For now I am not changing a running system.

    I mean, regardless of the fact I can't be fucked, I'm not updating my hacked O3ds. Never play online with it anyway, I'll update my N3DS. Play online with that. Point is, people are updating for either the nag or to play online.
    If you have freeShop and don't play online you're pretty much okay.

    In case people have forgotten, did you know that you can make a NAND back up of your 11.2 system upgrade to 11.3 if you are not happy with 11.3 you can always revert to 11.2 with hourglass9 and your 11.2 nand back up?

    There is also CTR-HTTPWN to spoof your firmware and allow you to use online gaming and pokebank

    Since i normally play Pokemon shuffle as well as Nintendo badge arcade I need to update the system, is not a big problem updating because on luma3ds nothing breaks

    I update really no matter what, I dont care about rxtools. Its been dead. Everything that I use works. GW is not useful any longer, so it being broken doesnt bother me. Everyone wants to update so they can avoid unnecessary steps to just play online... Most updates introduce nothing. Just fixes that break a lot of outdated things that shouldnt be in use. Most people want to play online or use things that the update is required for... Not sure why you don't know why people want to update so badly :P
