    hi @ all,

    just noticed that 107.211.140.65 is down and therefore I had to go with 8.8.8.8 to make my 3DS and the other WiFi devices work again.

    Are we getting updates now when I close the lid of my 3DS and accidentally leave WiFi on?

    What is going on with 107.211.140.65?

    Best wishes!

    It goes down randomly now and again. I wouldn't bug smea and yellows (or whoever's running the tubehax dns thing) about it yet.

    well, it is my primary DNS for not letting the Wii U or 3DS get updates. So if it fails, all my other devices fail to get internet.

    Manually setup DNS on your 3DS and WiiU, so all your devices get internet while only your ninty consoles will be offline when Tubehax DNS are down.

    Well, the boot seems to be better. It's has more new features. The one i liked it's create automatically the "dbs" foulder. So no need more to
    recreate database. There is more features but dont know how to use it. I alredy have installed with 3ds friend. I just wanna update to another friend.

    where to get?

    edit: nothing to get excited about. no better boot rate at all.

    "This just adds builds for system-version v10.4(which are the same for v10.5) + some menuhax_manager UI adjustments."

    Even when the tubehax dns is down, it still prevents updates. I don't know exactly how it works, but I read a thread a while back and it said that the tubehax dns still blocked updates even when it was down. People marveled at it.

    Who cares i it does update? With A9HL, updates are safe.

    True, but many people still prefer menuhax because they're paranoid of a brick from A9LH. If an update gets through and they do manage to update, their menuhax is gone.

    If you put tubehax DNS as both DNS on your systems when it's down your console won't connect to any site at all. Problem is that you're relying the safety to a 3rd party that may restore access to Nintendo's severs.

    What reason would they have to do that though? Restoring connection to Nintendo's servers without the person who set up the DNS's premission would make people not trust them and avoid their services.

    Guys, the reason it's down isn't an update or anything, mtheall's site (which all of this is hosted on) is down due to a power outage. Be patient and don't get hyped.

    No good reason at all, but the possibility exists (never heard of hackers being invaded?). That's why people recommend trying to set up your own DNS solution instead of relying on tubehax DNS. Also, as I said before, if tubehax DNS is down you can't connect to any site at all, that means no Nintendo Network, no online play, no games updates, no eShop, until the DNS is running again.
    Edit : except in the cases that you try to connect directly to a IP address, in this case you won't be relying on a DNS.
