    I know nothing about how this works.
    But changing DNS and IP doesn't seem to bypass locks.
    Playing Smaah at lunch would be cool.
    If anyone has an alternate way of bypassing blocks, could you tell?

    You mean that your school/workplace blocks Nintendo's servers? It would then be pretty safe to assume that they also block VPN or any kind of proxy setup, or it would make things a bit pointless. A software VPN running on the 3DS itself probably isn't going to happen anyway. Your best bet is to use a mobile hotspot (if you have one).

    I actually made this post with a VPN enabled phone. I wouldn't be able to do so otherwise.

    New 3DS exclusive and maybe a mini custom firmware?

    Why not set up a vpn on your phone then use that phone as an hotspot for your 3ds? I doubt the 3ds would be able to handle running a game and a vpn at the same time. I don't even know if it's possible to run things in the background while you game.
