    [source]

    Ironhax and Tubehax have been released. Link: http://smealum.github.io/3ds/
    Video demonstration:

    -The 3DS YouTube application is another entry point for the homebrew. Make sure to download it ASAP, even if you already have IronFall installed.


    Smealum has announced Ironhax, a major update for Ninjhax with new features such as booting into the Homebrew Launcher without having to use Cubic Ninja every time. While exact details of the update are sketchy to say the least, we do know that it relies on the free eShop title IronFall Invasion in order to work.

    Original post:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    [EDIT]

    Here's a summary of what we know so far:

    IMPORTANT: IronFall Invasion has been removed from the US and EU eShops. The YouTube app is supposedly another option. Download that if you missed your chance to download IronFall.

    - It supports all 3DS hardware models (2DS, O3DS, O3DS XL, N3DS, N3DS XL) in the US and EU regions, JP region consoles are not supported*
    - It supports the latest 3DS System Menu (version 9.9.0-26) and all firmwares since 9.3
    - It's an update that allows the Homebrew Launcher to be used without having to boot into Cubic Ninja every time
    - As a matter of fact, neither Cubic Ninja nor Ocarina of Time are needed to boot into the Homebrew Launcher this time (not even for the initial installation)
    - It relies on the free eShop title IronFall Invasion
    - YouTube is another entry point, Smealum said to download it, even if you already have IronFall Invasion
    - Smealum posted that it's preferable to have both IronFall and YouTube (although not compulsory), hinting that there may be more features possible if both are installed although quite what it is capable of has not been revealed

    - It doesn't matter if you install IronFall's 1.1 update or not
    - It has a "survival mode" that allows the exploit to be updated in case of the sysNAND being updated, allowing for support on future firmwares
    - Smealum said that more progress updates will follow later (i.e. There's no point in constantly pressing F5 as updates won't be on an hourly basis)
    - Release has been delayed for an indefinite period of time

    *Unfortunately, IronFall Invasion is not available in the Japanese eShop, therefore JP region consoles are not supported. Smealum says that this shouldn't have been a problem since JP had exclusive eShop access to Cubic Ninja.

    Just imagine the sudden price drop of Cubic Ninja.

    CN would still be needed for the initial install though. But it's funny how the work of one man has influenced the price of Cubic Ninja over the years.

    I just saw someone over on reddit say that this could mean there's a kernel exploit. Is that true?

    If this ends up creating 'ninjhax install services', then look for the price to go up possibly.

    Remember, you only need CN or Zelda once for GW N3ds mset installs and that fact didn't drop the prices at all.
    I am intrigued by amInit() being added to the 3ds_hbmenu source a few days ago...

    It's hardly one man though. He had a lot of help :)
    That still wouldn't allow it to work without CN though, unsigned code can't be launched directly. Makes me wonder if maybe he found something entirely new, that's never been seen before. So hyped.

    I think it will install a hacked save unto Health and Safety app via tvds or something.

    Health and safety app doesn't have a save file though, does it? The injection method that's used with FBI only works in CFW as well.
    Maybe it's a new entry point in a system app or an eShop game demo.

    I think he's writing something to a system extdata save to trigger nh 2.0.
    We'll find out soon enough.

    What would really be crazy is if he dumps your CN to sd to run it without the cart.
    He wouldn't do that, would he? o.O

    That'd mean a kernel exploit, wouldn't it?

    I saw that earlier! I'm so excited!! Honestly, though, the prices will more than likely go down which is a good thing, but I hope people know it would be best to hold on to your copy anyway, in case a patch blocks it again.

    Perhaps he found a way of exploiting the Notifications applet? Never know... :P

    All this talk about CN prices. I'm so glad I got mine for $5 when the first NH came out. (I feel bad, cause a guy was like an hour away driving to get it, but they can't hold stuff over the phone)
