    So, today I decided to install browserhax, but when I opened the browser it started nagging me with: "To use this browser, please update your system in System Settings" So I immedeatly pressed the home button because I know that updating makes the hack unusable. I dont know what to do. Help!

    Browserhax is dead on 9.9 and newer.

    If you're on N3DS you can sort of work around it (search around, there's a topic on it, but your results may vary), but if you're on O3DS, you're out of luck. This assumes you didn't update to 9.9 or higher through a retail game card; if you did, you're even more out of luck, Nintendo's intentionally "bricking" the browser through game carts until you update through the system settings, if your browser is old enough. If that happened to you, even an N3DS won't save you.

    :( Is there any other way to launch homebrew then without any games?

    If you had themehax/menuhax beforehand, you could just use that, but otherwise, no.

    False. Browserhax is fixed on 10.1, and if you get the update nag on O3DS, you're screwed since there is no work around like the N3DS.

    What exactly is "false"? Nothing I said is incorrect. 9.9 or higher includes 10.1, and I said if he's on O3DS, he's out of luck.

    (10.2 I meant) You said that 9.9 fixes it. It doesn't

    So yes, it does. But at any rate, he's on O3DS, so there's not much he can do with browserhax at this point.

    There is no way around it. Every version of 3DS has it patched, If you have a laptop and SmashBros3DS you can dual boot or live usb linux and get smashhax, oot3dshax or ninjhax. They work on latest firmware, themehax works with 10.1 and ironhax for non-latest ironfall.

    New 3ds kinda have a work around, google is your friend. Ask your friend for help on how.

    If you have smash on 1.1.2 or less you could use smashhax, or you can use oot3dhax (that needs powersaves) (smashhax needs linux) and ofc you can use ninjhax (no kidding! uses cubic ninja)
