Earlier this week Nintendo release a new FW update to the 3DS and this one actually went after homebrew. It patched a lot of stuff that should have been patched a long time ago like RXTools and other old hacks, you read more about what stopped working here. Just like normal, hackers got to work seeing what they need to fix to get homebrew launcher working again on FW11.3.
Less than a few days ago by and bam, they fixed the homebrew launcher but for CFW something still needs to fixed for it to work and that shouldn’t be too hard at all. Nintendo may have put a bump in the road with this new FW but in no time I can see things will be back to like they were before, just takes time and effort.
