Nintendo have updated the 3DS firmware to version 9.0, this is quite a big update and does take longer than normal to download.
The firmware brings custom themes to the 3DS, it has five built in when the firmware is installed, though those five only change the colour of the homescreen, something which the PS Vita has always been able to do, unlike Sony who forgot to supply their users with themes, Nintendo were prepared for this update and you able to buy new themes straight after updating, here is a quote of the changes:
Changes in system software version 9.0.0-20(19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0)E
- Addition of themes to the HOME Menu
The appearance of the HOME Menu can now be customised with themes. Five themes are provided with the update and additional themes can be purchased from the Theme Shop. Themes can be selected using the Change Theme option in HOME Menu Settings.
- Nintendo eShop
The layout of the software information page has been changed to provide easier access to videos, demo versions (when available), user reviews and other information.
Further improvements have been made to enhance the user’s experience.
- System stability improvements and other adjustments
Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user’s experience.
I think the free black one is quite sexy, not sure i will purchase any themes though.
