    It's stability time! A brand new update is out, for the Nintendo 3DS. Firmware version 11.12.0-44 has just released, bringing with it...well, no one knows exactly what it brings with it just yet. The yls8 page shows the update having gone out for most regions tonight, but Nintendo's official website hasn't updated to show the changelog (and obvious stability additions) as of the time of writing. What we do currently know is, a handful of titles have been updated thanks to this new firmware, including NVer, CVer, StreetPass, friends system-module, NATIVE_FIRM and Web browser data. More information will be added as things become more clear.

    UPDATE: And to no one's surprise, here are the patch notes from Nintendo:

    Currently, Luma still boots, but is not confirmed to be 100% working, while other homebrew and CFW are being tested.

    Oh boy, I wonder what isn't new! (Seriously, what do they change with these things? No hacks are broken usually.)

    We've reached the Valhalla of stability. But we can go further.

    Venezuela should start using 3DS' as their currency since they are probably more stable!

    I wonder if Nintendo knows about the running gag we all seem to be in on

    People say the same things about every single 3DS update... I wonder if Nintendo finds the changelogs humorous themselves.

    Is either Nintendo of America, Europe or Japan involved with making updates?

    Seems to be streetpass related (with a main kernel update*, and friends driver update as gratuitous requirement to go online in the near future) - maybe they found an actual stability issue in certain wireless environments (think of the new WiiMini bluetooth exploit, of course not directly), maybe they actually removed nintendo zone indirect streetpass support

    ---

    * possibly just to update the anti-downgrade list (my speculation)

    Why don't we take a look at new game releases for 3DS since they went through the trouble of enhancing the stability for it. Shall we? :unsure:

    Oh, I see one, and ONLY ONE. So I guess that was completely worth the firmware update. :blink:

    b9stool needs to be updated. Passed but hack wouldn't install.

    11.12 even takes longer to boot up.

    Jokes aside I doubt there are any major changes they would make at this point that would warrant bumping 11 to 12.

    I think they've just admitted that they can't stop hackers on the 3DS anymore.
