Those of you in the 3DS scene have probably been following Smealum’s recent activity with excitation. The French hacker announced several months ago that he was working on homebrew support on the latest firmwares for the 3DS. Until now, homebrew on the 3DS has been limited to older 4.x firmwares, and requires the use of expensive flashcarts. Smealum has confirmed his hack will not require a flashcart. It will, however, require a specific 3DS game to trigger the exploit. Smealum has confirmed to me that the game is available on physical cartridges, and, in one locale, on the Nintendo eShop. Bottom line is, if you are interested in this exploit you will need to purchase that game, and most likely you will want the physical version of it, not the eShop version (in particular because Nintendo would not be able to patch or remove the physical version from your device). The exploit has been confirmed to work on 3DS, 3DSXL, and 2DS, on all firmwares from 4.0 to 8.1.
