    Can someone please explain this?

    First off: N3DS, 9.2 Sysnand, 10.3 Rei Emunand, Tubehax DNS

    1. Boot 3DS into emunand
    2. Open FMP and apply patches (e-shop spoof=off)
    3. Try to enter eShop results in error 005-4273
    4. Exit eShop, start FMP, change e-shop spoof to on & apply
    5. Entering eSHop = success
    6. Exit eShop, start FMP, change s-shop spoof back to off & apply
    7. Enter eShop still = success

    So my question is, what exactly about the eShop spoof patch is allowing me to enter the eShop even when using the Tubehax DNS, and why does it still allow me to enter when switching/applying the FPM patch back to off when after a clean boot having it set to off doesn't allow eShop access?

    why do you still run FMP? i don't run FMP at all and can access e-shop no problem on 10.3.0-28U reinand.

    That's not the question here & you evidently aren't using Tubehax DNS if you can enter the eShop. Why post anything if it doesn't contribute to helping with the question whatsoever?

    I don't why you can access the eshop with the Tubehax DNS on. Maybe free multi patcher disables it?
    When you turn the eshop spoof on, free multi patcher makes an edit to the firm loaded into memory. When you set it to off, it isn't "undoing" that edit, you are just telling free multi patcher to not make any edits there.

    Gotcha. So if a person wants to change any FMP settings after applying them, they have to reboot their 3DS, change them, then apply. Strange imo if it disables Tubehax DNS. I don't think it should be doing that, and people should be made aware that it is doing it - if that's the case. I don't see any other reason, but I also don't know how it can just disable your custom DNS settings.

    It could be rerouting what address the eshop server tries to access when you go on the eshop. One way to find out is to sniff out what server addresses the 3DS is attempting to reach when you access the eshop with the spoof on.
    The same thing could also explain how the firmware update download blocker works as well.

    I tried several times and there is one difference when the eshop spoof patch is on vs off. When the patch is on, the address in bold doesn't ever appear when trying to connect. Not sure exactly what that means though, or why it would make any difference in relation to the question(s) asked in my OP. I mean, I don't know how/why the patch blocking that address would bypass Tubehax DNS.
