We have already heard the rumor that failed that an update was suppose to come to us on the 20th of March wich apperently failed but now take a look at this:

Maxconsole is claiming that Nintendo is readying a 3DS update for launch in just a few days. There would be a number of features in the firmware, such as a “Game Preview” mode on the eShop, a Nintendo Network application, and more.
A full listing of the functionality included in the rumored update is as follows:

* Ability to access Nintendo eShop account from other internet enabled devices including computers and smartphones.
* This system update will allow users to take pictures of QR codes with the 3DS from the other device’s screen to redeem purchased content.
* This update will add the application “Nintendo Network” to the 3DS.
* Ability to update physical Nintendo 3DS Games via Nintendo Shop (DLC feature).
* A “Game Preview” Mode for the Nintendo 3DS system Nintendo Shop.
* Enhances the speed of the handheld.
* Increases the system security with automatic security updates.
* Nintendo Zone will be automatically added to European 3DS owners.​
We’ll be able to determine if this rumor is legitimate or not soon. If nothing becomes available within the next few days, that would be a pretty good sign that the above speculation is fake!

* Increases the system security with automatic security updates.
Hmm, hasn't this been a feature for some time now? They've been advertising automatic updates for a while. Perhaps this means something new?
Then again, they've also been advertising something along the lines of "your 3DS can download software via spotpass whilst in sleep mode", And how much has that done...?

Posted on NeoGaf = Go with it. = Game Journalism.

care to link me op dint source it
The original source was Maxconsole.
http://www.maxconsol...00005265&cat=DS

Although the rest of the internet didn't seem to care till gaf posted it. :P
Turns out they're quoting neogaf, who are quoting them, who are quoting neogaf, who are quoting a japanese webpage, who are quoting maxconsole, who probably got it from wiki.
Confusing enough?

fake/10
But there probably is a 3.0000000.7 coming soon, to block the carts the dsi blocked.

BTW, 3.00000000000.4 or 5 added QR code reading, press R on the menu and look at the top screen.

If there's no app then what makes NN any different then what we got, its probably just a app to use for accounts/community, I mean Nintendo did say they wanted some form of 3DS community.

Nintendo Network App? Speeds up system?

Doesn't sound that Nintendo.
HD and account based online doesn't sound very Nintendo but their doing it.
Face it guys, more or less Nintendos trying to change.
But is it even possible to 'speed up' the system? Unless they want to ruin more battery life.

to make the system more efficient? better code handling? namely the bootrom? YES, they can always increase the efficiency of the bootrom, if they were to reach the limit of bootrom efficiency, they could underclock the CPU and make the code MORE efficient... as simple as that, they got the documentation, they know what it takes to run a 3DS\DS game, they can build it and they can build it better, I don't need to point out game examples that were redone on lower-end hardware and had better coding in some sort... bootrom is not the only place they can enhance...
