Like the earlier post today, if you still have not followed Smealum on twitter and want homebrew on your 3DS then I highly suggest you do.
So far all we know is the game will be old and cheap. It is also available in one area’s E-Shop, although probably for a higher price.
Keep checking Smealum’s twitter to keep up to date on this hack.

If you haven’t been following Smealum on Twitter, I suggest you do. For the past 2 months he’s been working hard at churning out an exploit and creating a toolkit for the 3DS, and he’s kept everyone updated on the progress.

He’s recently started giving requirements for the exploit as well.

And although it isn’t guaranteed, we may even see a release next week!

Now, this exploit will not allow backups of commercial games. It will only allow homebrew games/apps. He wants to allow homebrew without enabling pirates.

Speaking of homebrew, Smealum tweeted saying he had BlargSnes running on his exploit.

Smealum has not released the name of the exploit game yet, follow him on twitter to keep up on his progress and the release date.

Nintendo has released another system update tonight which brings the Wii U to 5.1.2 and as usual it doesn’t change much.

The full update changelog states:

  •  Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.

For now, nothing seems to have been changed or patched but as usual avoid updating until a developer gives the OK.
