    Well, I wasn't entirely sure where to put this, but I figured since it is firmware (system software), it'd go here. Feel free to move if wrong. Anyways, just out of curiosity (and wanting to know a little bit more about those really vague 'Improves system stability' or 'fixes stuff' changelog descriptions), what system software is your 3DS on? Vote on poll.

    If you haven't updated, what is your reason for not updating, or for updating?

    If your not at the latest then your not playing your 3DS, therefore you wouldn't be in this section, or atleast in this topic.

    Well, for instance, a precaution against more difficult to softmod (or maybe an anticipation) of a situation like 4.2 wii's bannerbomb and 4.3's needing-to-buy-an-actual-game until Letterbomb came out. That was my thinking until I updated to 4.3.01 on the 3DS.

    Why would this matter if no known exploit exists yet?

    Don't you think they would have found it by now in that case?

    I am on the latest since I have a DSi and lite to use my DSTwo with, plus the eshop is pretty decent.

    This. I really can't see the point of listing all of those firmware versions other than to have a lot of options on a poll. For the most part, people are either up to date, or on the last firmware before the update. People who buy new 3DS will almost IMMEDIATELY update, due to system transfers and basically just to see the eShop.

    And what if someone finds an exploit on 4.3.0-10 that wasn't there in prior versions, Nintendo patch it quickly and when you go to update you end up on 4.3.0-11?

    That's implying Nintendo knew about an exploit before the people who found it. When has this ever happened other then when the hackers got in contact with the company directly?? (Microsoft and JTAG/SMC)
