    It's basically the browser exploit.

    Spider is the name of an exploit in the 3DS's browser. It allows the launch of unsigned code, but it's relatively new and found out by Gateway, so no one beside them really knows how it works yet. So far, there has been very few homebrew that use it. The most notable is regionthree, it allows to start game cartridges which are from a different zone than your 3DS.

    edit : slight mistake, it was found out by a certain MathewE, but used mainly by gateway.

    The spider exploit itself works up to 9.5.0-22, and the exploit was patched the other day with 9.5.0-23. However, system flaws used by ninjhax were fixed in 9.3, and those are required in conjunction with the spider exploit to run Gateway.

    How does that factor into this?

    Ninjhax uses three different exploits, only one has been patched. So, limited homebrew is still possible, but not the homebrew launcher.

    Yes that kind of wizard.
    Easy. CN still works as an entry point into the system. It wasn't patched, a few other things were however.
    Funny thing about spider getting updated is that Ninty used an old webkit version so there's publicly known flaws that one could likely use. Not sure why they bother sometimes.
