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.

Stupid, yes, but also par for the course with this company. I'm hoping there'll be an update if the cause of the issue is found, yeah!



Oh that tool looks brilliant, but sadly the device still on stock OS - I can't use Seedminer because you have to add the bot 3DS as a friend, which... is blocked by parental controls lmao
Well. I just had a look at the Python script. Just reading in the comments is enough:
github.com/dazjo/mkey/blob/master/mkey.py said:
# The v2 algorithm uses a masterkey.bin file that can be updated independently of the rest of the system,
# avoiding the need for recompiling the parental controls application. The format consists of an ID field,
# used to identify the required key files for the user's inquiry number, a HMAC key encrypted using AES-128-CTR,
# and the AES counter value for decrypting it.
# Obviously, what is missing from this list is the AES key itself, unique to each region, which is usually
# hardcoded within the parental controls application (i.e. .rodata).
#
# The 3DS implementation stores the masterkey.bin file in the CVer title, which is updated anyway for every
# system update (it also contains the user-facing system version number). The AES key is stored in mset
# (System Settings) .rodata.
Wait for an update of the files in the backend of the key generator or use ntrboot to install CFW (and remove the PIN).
Manual bruteforce a four-digit key is possible, but man, this is tedious.

Again: Good luck!

Yeah, don't have anything to ntr with so I'll have to make do with waiting and trying some codes whilst I do so :rofl: Thanks for the help!

does your code no longer work? the only system I have parental controls initiated on is the 360, to block live access since it's a jtag. it's been that way for years. I do remember the passcode. ;)

I have a 3DS running Native Firm 11.5 and am trying to hack using the browserhax method. I realize now the reason browserhax no longer works is because of the update nag you receive when trying to access a page. Is there a way to bypass that or has Nintendo patched it on their end? It seems like a simple thing to bypass, but maybe it's more complicated than I am thinking.

Use the seedminer method to hack your 3DS instead.

Edit: To be clear, you need to update to 11.15 to do it.

Yes, I saw that on the guide as well. For my purposes the Seedminer method is too cumbersome compared to Browserhax so I was hoping there was an easy answer to the browser nag.

nintendo: I have a great idea lets release an update for a system that no longer has any games support, it's online shut off and basically no reason to ever update again!

Updated my system just now, no problems to report. I made a nand backup of 11.14.0-46, and I just made one of the new update on my n3ds and placed them on 2 hdds.
Hi godreborn. Does a nand backup fully restore everything? Does it retain saves (3ds or virtual console) as well even if you did not use checkpoint?

I believe it retains everything that existed when that nand build was made. saves should be on the sd card, so I don't know if it will retain saves made afterwards or not.

Did this break ninjhax by any chance? That is what I use to get into homebrew.
As far as I know, ninjhax compatibility has been broken on previous updates. If you don't need the update, don't do it. If you need, there is a comprehensive guide here: https://3ds.hacks.guide/

On US and J units, the last update that broke *hax exploits was 11.7. If you're already on 11.7 or a later firmware and you update to 11.15, then ninjhax will not be affected.

On E-units, the 11.10 update broke *hax again. There's no reason ninjhax shouldn't work – except to my knowledge, no one ever made updated QR codes, and trying to generate them yourself is likely to be extraordinarily difficult.

But in any case, even if you don't want to install CFW for some reason, Pichaxx is much more convenient than ninjhax.

Thanks. Currently on 11.14.0-46U.

2DS XL, US console. Sounds like I can update if I need to.
