    Just very recently, at 33c3 a LOAD of exploits for 3ds were revealed! This included:

    SOUNDHAX: basic homebrew without having to buy a game!

    FASTHAX: ARM11 kernel exploit. (but faster then slowhax/waithax)

    SIGHAX: allowing the signing of firmware's.

    VECTORHAX: method of dumping bootrom9!

    None of these are out yet but in theory they should all work (excluding sighax) on the latest version (currently)! I'd like to hear what you guys think in the comments!

    Sighax seems like it will be cool if it DOES work on the latest version. I doubt it though because I'm pretty sure 11.0 blocked legit cias and doesn't allow the installation of firmware under a specific version. So just signing isn't enough unless we can get passed that restriction.

    I'm assuming this is like the PS3's CFW scene where we could effectively make our own (major) changes to the FW (like having a running FTP server on the homemenu instead of having to run homebrew for it)? Or would it just be more like CFW as it stands, just we can sign it and the 3DS accepts it?
