    I just want to run homebrew, do these new hacks offer any kind of advantage?
    I have a N3DS running on 9.5.0.22E. Menuhax is installed (installed through Ninjhax, I still have the cartridge). I'm using it to run RetroArch. In fact, that's the reason why I replaced my old 3DS by a N3DS. A portable emulator machine!
    I have absolutely zero interest in running pirated 3DS roms or eShop titles. I have legal DS and 3DS cartridges and want to be able to keep playing them.
    Do all of these new hack developments have anything to offer to me? Can I perhaps run those CIA versions of the retroarch cores (they're supposed to be faster, right?)

    Well, once they work, you'll be able to have an emuNAND. It doesn't only mean piracy (which you said you don't care about).

    It also means that you'll have a firmware updated to the latest (to use the eShop or latest games with new anti piracy checks and that need newer firmwares) BUT still convenient homebrew methods (you'll still have menuhax on your sysNAND even though it will probably be patched on the firmware your emuNAND will be on).

    Plus as you said the cia versions of programs made by users for better speed or convenience.

    Kernel means dynarec. That means faster emulation.

    Also more access to homebrew by the general public means more interest means more homebrew gets developed. Look how dead this place got when most of the exploits had dried up.

    there are other advantages to cfw besides piracy in my opinion you should read up on NTR cfw it was designed for non piracy use [Release]NTR CFW 3.2 with experimental Real-Time Save feature.
