    It appears yellows8 has discovered a way to bypass the mandatory browser update nags to re-enable browserhax and has decided to share this info with us.
    only works on firm 10.5 or less
    NOTE
    This workaround was fixed with the latest update, 10.7.0-31 https://github.com/yellows8/browserhax_site/commit/d6c35eabfb83f70aeda10b757c9119c40fa844d1

    That easy? Not even a hacky savedata? Well, ok. It can be patched very easily, but good news everyone!

    That has got to be one of the worse ways to code. Whoever coded this for Nintendo should have checked if the SaveData == initialized SaveData instead of just comparing time.

    I have to admit I chuckled pretty hard at that. Roll clock back, format browser savedata, done. Heh.

    I don't use browserhax but this is awesome. Just don't set your date back to 1970. :)

    Is this doable on o3ds? You have to update to 10.6 so it has no sense

    No.. This was made so you don't have to update to 10.6! This works on ≤10.5. Also yes, it should work on the o3DS.

    Nintendo secretly updates the browser, they left behind a flaw... even if you are in a lower version of your 3DS, the browser would be forced to be in the latest version. Because they expect you to update so they have the browser up to date.

    But the OP said you need to be on 10.6 on o3ds to make this work, but the thing is because that is the latest version right now, you will not have the browser nag, and browserhax doesn't work in this version...

    ...And yet, I tried on a 10.6-less 2DS that was in 9.9.0 for months with a update nag and it worked.
