Nintendo 3DS firmware 11.15.0-47 released

2306021_sd.jpg

No, you didn't misread that title--after nearly a year since the last one, Nintendo has put out a system software update for the Nintendo 3DS line of handhelds. Currently, neither Nintendo's European or North American websites are acknowledging the update, but Nintendo of Japan has, and while it isn't exactly the classic message we're used to, the main focus of the update is "improved system stability and convenience". As for custom firmware, it appears that the latest version of Luma3DS is still working on the newly released 11.15.0-47, with users reporting that the firmware release merely exists to update the 3DS browser's SSL security certs.

Major changes due to the update to 11.15.0-47J
[New Nintendo 3DS / New 3DS LL / New 2DS LL / 3DS / 3DS LL / 2DS]
Improved system stability and convenience
Some functions are added / corrected only by updating by network download.
The game card update does not include some changes.

For updates of main unit functions before this,Nintendo 3DS system version change historyplease look at.

This just feels like a constant cat and mouse with web browser hacks that the Big N really just needs to give up on. They are literally investing time, money, and resources into this update instead of adding themes to the Switch
my hunch is they plan to update up to version 12.0.0-50U hehe. more or less 2-3 more updates coming.

Nintendo will likely not be removing nintendo network support for the 3ds and wii u. Why, because they're the same nintendo network. If you go on the switch eshop and have a game from the wii u or 3ds on your wishlist, it shows up on your switch wishlist as well.

If youre still on 11.14 & still have browser online access, do you think it's still possible to use browserhax?
Last I checked, they still haven't updated the server-side browser check, so you should be able to use browserhax on 11.14.
Only way to know for sure is to try.

During the 11.13->11.14 update last year, it took them a week to update the server check.

oh hi zoogie! do you think developing a newer browserhax for v11.15 (or another easier method) is doable?

It took them about three years to add themes to the 3ds... the Switch has been out for 50% longer than that... although Nintendo didn't have to combat exploits on the 3ds within those first few years like it has with Switch, so maybe blame the Switch hacking community for the lack of themes rather than an update for the 3ds :teach:

Yet another set of browserhax would not be my first choice. I'd rather find an offline entrypoint and not play cat/mouse anymore.

I truly believe they're focusing on fixing network exploits like browserhax and ssloth instead of more advanced arm11/arm9 exploits because they could be used on unsuspecting users (malicious pages, mitm, etc.) without their knowledge. This is in contrast to focusing on piracy concerns like in previous years. I think the user-safety fear is unfounded, but whatever.

I'll just wait until Luma3DS puts out another update just in case my consoles brick while updating.
there's no point, Luma3DS won't update for this, this 3DS firmware didn't do anything that would require a Luma update. you'll be waiting forever

wait this can't really be true, can it?

I'm not sure if I'm banned. I've wondered for quite some time, but I've never checked by going to my friends' list. I'm afraid that it might stress me out if I am. I added a couple friends about four years ago. I remember this, because it was when I was trying to get on disability. I don't think I ever played a game before release, but it's possible I tested one (not sure). I've been aware not to do that for a very long time, so it's probably unlikely. point being: it doesn't really bother me if offline services end, because then a ban doesn't really matter. does anyone know if you can still install game updates if you're banned?

Blaming the hacking community for Nintendo not introducing the most basic of features is a pretty cheap cop out at this point. There are a lot of basic features for the Switch that Nintendo has taken their sweet time rolling out and many of them we won’t even have accessible without buying new hardware, like an Ethernet port. Nintendo shouldn’t be given a free pass because “hacking community” or because of their history. Nintendo needs to be called out for their constant slacking on implementing basic features that most products have at launch. Also the screen excuse is just lazy and really any excuse at this point is lazy, we’ve been able to add themes pretty much since the system was first hacked. Nintendo is a massive billion dollar corporation, they should be embarrassed that ragtag individuals outclassed them.

always make an a nand backup of the previous update (just in case anything were to go wrong), then you can downgrade with godmode. I made a nand backup a couple weeks ago along with a backup of my sd card (after installing bowser's inside story and its update). the only changes were updating twilight menu++, so I didn't make another nand backup right before I updated (didn't think I really needed to), and I made a nand backup after updating to 11.15.0-47.

they can afford lawsuits, but somehow too broke to properly engineer joycons, what worse is this was never an issue with their previous controllers

In my opinion the N64 controller was already complete garbage... and the Game Cube controller sucked too... and the WII one... good for everything except playing the games I was interested in! And the C-Stick thing on the New 3DS? Don't even get me started... a cheap pathetic afterthought like that would not have been tolerated if it were any other company (the original 3DS came out at a time were a 2nd stick for camera control had been the standard for over a decade)... not to mention selling the New 3Ds with two different screen technologies for the same price (one vastly superior to the other)! If we are hones, the hardware Nintendo has been putting out the past 20 something years has been sub par to put it mildly, serviceable at best... and utter bullshit at worst! The only thing keeping this company afloat are the IPs and the awesome games attached to them.
