Nintendo 3DS gets a new firmware update for version 11.14.0-46

2020 hasn't been the most stable year, but at least Nintendo is hard at work making sure that above all else, the Nintendo 3DS is the most stable thing in your life during these trying times. The system has just received a brand new firmware update, the first of 2020, to be exact, bringing the revision number to 11.14.0-46. Currently, the yls8 page shows us that a few changes were made regarding the web browser, NATIVE_FIRM, and more. The official changelog from Nintendo says the oh so popular phrase you've come to love:
  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.
Considering the random nature of this update, and the first few initial claims of those that took the plunge already, you might want to hold off on updating for right now, if you value having homebrew on your console. Reports state that Luma3DS is crashing, and that BrowserHax has been patched.

Why Nintendo? Why can't they just let the poor thing stay dead?
Luma doesn't work on latest firmware. I wonder how quick a fix will take.
It actually shouldn't be too hard to fix, last time it just required changing a few lines of code. I could be wrong though and I am of course willing to test if they need me to

Cause the eshop still makes them a fortune I would guess.

- Browserhax patched.
- Other unreleased exploits patched (don't know what).
- Luma3ds crashing but should be fixable.
https://github.com/LumaTeam/Luma3DS/releases/tag/v10.2.1 (here's the fix)

Use caution when updating if you have cfw.
If you don't have cfw, you might want to wait to update.

Sometimes I like to think Nintendo updates the 3DS not to break CFW, but instead to see what kind of stability jokes GBATemp can come up with.
Problem being there hasn't been a good stability joke posted for about 3 years :rofl2:

For the sake of throwing myself directly into traffic and seeing what I can learn from this update, I am updating now. The first thing I've learned is that this update seems to take an ass long time to download for me.

It's just adorable how they continue to fight a war that was already lost long ago.

Why not invest that much up front, like Sony and M$ do. Another great idea might be security reviews, just to make sure not to leave any debug ports open, or call a int return a 'random number generator' or similar mindboggling mistakes...
