UPDATE: New information on Flipnote 3DS added, see below
Nintendo has released FW11.6 for all regions of the 3ds system. It’s the typical “system stability” within its changelog and it seems that they have only blocked the Flipnote app forcing you to update it.
“Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.
It seems if you have 3DS Flipnote application, it will not start unless you update. For whatever reason Nintendo is targeting this potential future exploit for 11.5″

UPDATE ON FLiPNOTE:
Many users were quick to confirm updates were not available for Flipnote 3DS. Which made your application useless even if you legimately wanted to use it. However, I remember experience from previous applications via the ambassador program. If your not wanting to use this upcoming exploit and already have B9S/A9LH based CFW. You can restore functionality by doing the following:
- Turn on 3DS and open the eShop.
- Go to menu > settings/other > Redownload able software.
- Click on “Your Downloads”
- Look for Flipnote Studio 3D and select the update tab on it.
Amazing enough it does not patch:
B9S based CFW
A9LH based CFW
Smea has suggested it will not affect his Homebrew launcher payload system. But it’s still recommended to not update atm if you don’t have B9S or A9LH setup.
based on 1 test 11.6 doesnt appear to affect hax- 11.5 payloads should work the same on 11.6
you should probably wait until updating though
