The Nintendo 3DS has recently been updated to version 9.3.0-21U, adding various features to the system while promising that “further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.” In other words, Nintendo has made their system more stable.

What many homebrewers won’t like about the update is that it apparently incorporates blocks, specifically targeting a recent discovery to exploit the 3DS with the help of a game titled Cubic Ninja, allowing the system to run unofficial software.


Of course, those who don’t involve themselves with this type of activity won’t be affected. Those who do though won’t be having a very pleasant day.

At the very least this update shouldn’t alter our experience when playing titles like A Link Between Worlds or the upcoming Majora’s Mask 3D.
