    i wonder the same thing about the 5000 android app updates i get a month
    nothing ever changes or improves ever but sometimes things break
    and if it is a google app it breaks and does not usually get fixed for months years or never
    i guess devs need some excuses to keep receiving a paycheck after all
    literally 1000 "updates" to some app but change log has not changed in all 1000

    Seems like it's safe to update, as I can still play FBI and my CIA's after updating to latest firmware.

    It amazes me that Nintendo wastes development time on a dead platform to seemingly no avail. What's the goal? To prevent piracy & homebrew? That's a waste of money at this point as it would just be an endless game of cat-and-mouse.

    Nintendo should instead focus development on the Nintendo Switch & add actual features to the Switch. Features like Achievements, Themes, A more fleshed out user page, etc.

    Evidently not.

    I can assure you, minimal support for a system that still brings in sales is not preventing Nintendo from working on the Switch. If they're not adding the features you want, it's because they don't care to add those features, not because of the 3DS.

    Reminder that Mario Kart 7 sold over 1.2 million copies in the previous financial year. Much of it from bundles, meaning hardware sales, meaning more software sales because new customers are likely to also buy more games down the line.

    The eShop might as well be free money for them too. They don't even have to worry about printing games, all they have to do is keep up with server costs and people buy games full price, which ultimately gives them more money than if that person had bought the game on day-1.

    Sales are lower than they used to be, sure, but they are far from nonexistent.

    I know Luma is working fine, but I'm still holding out in case of a banwave.
    Though I might just be paranoid.

    They still have not removed the miiverse icon. If accidently launched and it's annoying you can always go into parental controls and turn block miiverse completely, preventing it from starting.

    You'll be fine, 11.12 barely changes anything from 11.8

    sm is identical, fs, pm, loader and pxi only had their product code changed, and Process9 only increments 16 bytes by 1 in what I assume to be the minimum version list.

    I'm honestly not sure why they bothered.

    Yeah. I just bought mine (my first ever handheld) direct from Nintendo last week. I'm not the least bit interested in a Switch or I would have bought that instead. The 3DS is far from dead as they are still selling new 2DS units and so-called refurbished New 3DS XLs (mine looks brand new) on their website. I recognize Splatoon and Bayonetta aren't coming to the 3DS, but they'd be foolish to abandon it when it's still selling hardware and software. (As an aside: not only did Just Dance 2020 just get released for the Wii due to good sales last year at this time for JD2019, but they still sell new copies of Mario Kart Wii - some 40,000 in ONE QUARTER last year!)

    And as a practical matter, the "continuing engineer" that worked on the legacy 3DS firmware prolly spent less than an hour on the fix and is prolly not one that would be tasked with adding the Switch features DJ91990 is asking for.

    Back on topic: I went from 11.9.0-42u (which it shipped with) to 11.10.4-43u a few nights ago using the guide at 3ds.hacks.guide and have updated to 11.12.0-44 today without issue. I'm not one to turn my back on additional stability, even when I didn't ask for it.
