PROJECT ABANDONED! AFTER CONSULTING WITH OTHERS IN THE SCENE, I FOUND OUT THIS KIND OF HACKING VECTOR IS NOT POSSIBLE!
I am however working on other various Wii U hacking related projects, but don’t expect any formal announcements until I have something tangible to show off. I don’t want anymore mistakes like this one. Sorry for the confusion.
Smealum as promised has revealed the title of the game used to exploit the 3DS, the game title is Cubic Ninja.
It was released in 2011 by AQ Interactive in Japan and Ubisoft in EU and North America, it also seen an eShop release in 2013, but only in Japan.
Here are some tweets from Smealum:
This game will be hard to find and range in price from £10 to £60 and will only get higher in price:
You can try your luck with the links below, but you should be quick when you see a bargain, as these will be extremely rare to find:

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.
