Another one of these weeks' hottest weekday, Friday*, has passed: and what could have happened?

This time, a large (but not omnicomprehensive) set of Nintendo factory and servicing software for the 3DS family of systems has leaked.
The archive, called "3ds_manu.7z" and having a SHA-1 hash of E6E1B9BE4413E7BA38EF5BE6A7CE78440200D775, has as its main feature the master image of a cartridge supposed to install the factory image for an European New Nintendo 2DS (which appears to itself be related to the long-discussed CTRAging), but also contains further testing software for the New 3DS half-generation.

* despite most of the leaks, statistically, not having been released on Fridays

Notes from 4chan regarding the JAN01_SP_AND_TP_TESTER_Ver2.1:
https://en.ids-imaging.com/files/do.../windows/ids-software-suite-full-32-49300.zip <- the 3RD tool needed by the JANE_SP_AND_TP_TESTER.exe tool
(if you don't install it you will have an error about missing "uEye_api.dll" library)

JAN_SP_AND_TP_TESTER's username and password are

nintendo
1111

the password 7770 can also be used instead of 1111, it will open a different screen

KTR_Aging_Import_Program_ver.5.80_3833_9.12_Release.master contains CTRAging in the romfs

"UnfixedKey" files are dev signed

KTR_System_Writing_Program_JAN_EUR_JB1_ver.1.00_3870_11.2_Release.master includes system files in the romfs

These csu's boot on a stock system using sky3ds (just rename to .3ds with < 8 char name).

(actually, some will crash, but they boot).

This new2ds firmware happens to be 11.4.0-37E. That's the initial firmware on new2dsXL launch day.

So this is just for testing? Or does it give some insight onto the 3ds inner workings?

Anyway, the 3ds is wide open in many ways so what further advantages could be done?
