    Someone on Reddit mentioned that MrNBAYoh is giving a talk at https://halfnarp.events.ccc.de/ later this month. It looks like the exploit that was patched in 11.12 allows for some kind of remote takeover of 3DS units via StreetPass. And this new update is a fix for that patch.

    Userland execution is enough to brick a 3ds, so this is not a joke. It couldn't happen "automatically" as you suggest, but a malicious actor could craft a streethax payload that overwrites nand files.

    Streetpass may not be super popular anymore these days, but I'd heartily recommend to anybody: keep your 3ds updated if you go hunting for tags. Especially at any nerd-cons where streetpass is known to still be kinda popular.

    I kinda miss homepass, but I admit I'm actually glad it's kill with this exploit about to be in the wild.

    Here's the 36c3 "streethax"* talk announcement just to help the danger sink in a bit:

    Gosh. Really? As in blue-screened? Even on the latest firmware? How would that work?

    Frozen black screen on boot most likely but it could vary. The unreleased streetpass hack should be fixed on latest firmware. The flaw for nand bricking still works but it needs a separate homebrew entrypoint, and all the "execute without your knowledge" entrypoints should be patched up on latest firm.
    I'd rather not go into details on how it works for obvious reasons, but it's unfortunately very simple.

    So, the 3ds will still be supported for 2020 :toot: and I'm still here, waiting for my 3ds to be repaired.

    Fair enough. I would have thought someone would have conjured up a malicious .3dsx by now if it was easy, but maybe it's best not to speak of such things.

    For once, we finally get an update that's unrelated to stability.

    I do have one question...

    How is it that they have time to fix a StreetPass bug, but not fix the double line bug in TWL_FIRM or AGB_FIRM? :P

    Damn. I just thought if you put the Switch cartridge in the battery slot it would work with this firmware.

    They'll probably add actual Switch support in firmware update v11.632.0-45
