Nintendo Switches Latest Firmware Update - Version 4.0.0 - Removes All Code for Triggering NES Golf Emulator - "Flog" - Whats Nintendo Up to?

If you guys recall a few months after the Nintendo Switch was Released, This image of the NES game "Golf" Appeared on someones Switch after accidentally triggering it with a Joy-con Gesture.

Not only was this an epic, unexpected and still unexplained Easter Egg put into the Switches Code, but it also had 2 Player Joy-con Support Built in.

The Emulator can only work on an Unused Fresh Console, The Date and Time must be Set to July 11th, the Date of Iwata's Death.

"Some sort of Tribute to him," is all the hackers can speculate, especially without any official word from Nintendo yet.

Reggie: Head of NOA - Said that they wouldn't be explaining the emulator any time soon and that he was a little discouraged that the Hackers found it so quickly while "poking around in the firmware"

Flash Forward to December 2017, a New Firmware for the Switch is released, Version 4.0.0, and in this version, ALL MENTION OF FLOG IS GONE!

What Could Nintendo Be Up too? Did…

[Mobile][News] Animal Crossing Pocket Camp Released 1 Day Early on Google Play Store or IOS App Store! - But w/ Server Connection Issues (802-XXXX) First Impressions

I’m so excited to share this news with you… Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will be coming to mobile devices worldwide on 11/22! I can’t wait! — Isabelle (@animalcrossing) November 20, 2017

Earlier YesterdayIsabelle posted on Twitter that Nintendo's new Mobile Installment of Animal Crossing would be released in 2 days...Well its been 1 Day an the App is already available on the Google Play store & the IOS App Store.

The Game is Fully Playable as is, but there is some Massive Server Issues - where you have to mash the retry button 100 times before it will finally connect to the Servers.

These Error codes Always Start with:

- "802" Followed by 4 random numbers that seem to interchange with no meaning

 I am hoping there will be a quick fix to these issues as tons of players are already reporting multiple error codes that seemingly don't mean anything.

You can Link an existing Nintendo Account to the Game, and it will save your prog…

[Gaming][News] Pokemon Bank & Poke Transporter have an Update to Support the New PKMN Games (Ultra Sun, Ultra Moon, Silver & Gold VC)

Nintendo Recently stated that Pokemon Bank would be getting an update to support the new "Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Games"in Late November.

Well as of an hour ago (Nov. 19th @ 10pm EST ) Pokemon Bank & Poke Transporter received a very significant update allowing just that.

You can now Transfer your Mons from Any Game on the 3DS

CFW users could already do this for along time using PKhex and PKSM (download below)
► PKHex:
But not the mainstream 3DS users can easily do it as well.
Its great to see Nintendo supporting the 3DS so Late into 2017, with an Epic Pokemon Release, and continual Poke Bank Support. 
I believe the 3DS is going to hold a Place in the "Nintendo Elite Handhelds" category for a long time to come right there next to the Nintendo Switch.
If you guys want a Tutorial on how to Use PKSM and PKhex to get pokemon from:
- Physical Gameboy/GBC Carts - DS Games 3DS Games - VC Games and More;

[3DS][News][Tutorial] Anemone "Anemone - 3DS Theme Manager" - First Look - Can it Dethrone Themely? - Kill CHMM2?

Recently a New Theme Manager for the Nintendo 3DS appeared on the homebrew scene.

 It may or may not work on Homebrew at the moment,
(it should but the payloads might not allow it to boot on 11.5 userland)
but is quickly making a name for itself with CFW users
Right off the bat, forums goers were quickly speculating, that with a few updates,this could be the theme manager to De-throne Themely& Kill off CHMM2 once and for all. 

The Creator of Anemone is none other then dev "astronautlevel", currently known for one of the Rosalina-lessLuma 3DS CFW projects. 
(I use these builds everyday dual booted with the normal 8.1.1) Check that project out here:

Anemone Screenshots: 

As you can see from the screen shots, it has a fairly simple and clean User Interface.

I think it has a lot of potential to become "prettier" in the future (like themely being "beautiful") but I really do enjoy it perfectly as it currently is.

[3DS][News] NINTENDO RELEASES 11.5.0-38 & no one can figure out what it did - Smea Already Releases 11.5 *hax Payloads - NOTHING BROKEN FOR CFW USERS!

Today around 8-9 pm I received a tweet on my phone from Smea & Yellows8' Twitter Bot. These Tweets were directing my attention to the Fact that Nintendo Released a "New 11.5 Update" for the Nintendo n3DS, o3DS & 2DS.

Right off the bat I was a bit worried but as it turns out:

- If you have Luma CFW and Boot9Strap it is SAFE TO UPDATE TO 11.5.0
(make a nand backup if you don't have one first! -->HOW TO MAKE A NAND BACKUP<--)

- Everything Rosalina Related still works fine!

- Kernel Exploits for the 3DS "end of life" were not patched on 11.5
( These are soft-mods for the future after nintendo drops support for the 3DS)

- Smea Already Updated the Payloads before I even got Home - Unfortunately the o3DS and 2DS still aren't able to use Homebrew on Userland Devices (non-cfw)

These *hax Payloads don't matter if you have Luma CFW on 8.0 or Higher:
- CFW users use the "Boot.3dsx" File on the root of your SD Card to launch homebrew (don&…

[3DS][News][08-27-2017] As suspected "arm9 and kernal 11 exploits" are still abundant on 11.4 - Smea Tweets "Waiting for Tendy to Stop Supporting the 3DS" - Does this mean Years until Softmodding 11.4? Twitter A-blaze

Yesterday Smea confirmed in a Tweet - what we thought was true all along - that devs were holding out on Releasing kernal exploits for Nintendo 3DS' on 11.4 Firmware.

This might come as a suprise to some, but much speculation was done regarding when a new exploit would be released for 11.4.
Some thought maybe an 11.5 update would accompany the new2dsxl, but the device has  since been released in Australia & New Zealand for almost a month now & its confirmed to be on 11.4.0 This gave us a little sigh of relief as DSiwarehax and ntrboothax still work on the n2dsxl 

- meaning that we will always be able to CFW those devices in those aspects (until dsiware isn't available)
Shortly after this news of dsiware and ntrboothax not being patched on 2dsxl, Nintendo released this statement-

Nintendo DMCA's Every Mainstream Rom and ISO from a Popular Backup Website (Mario,Pokemon,Fire Emblem, Megaman, Kirby) + MH:XX JPN Disappears from the titlekey site

If you've been on emuparadise lately, you might have noticed messages like this under every mainstream title Nintendo owns, 
It turns out Nintendo has DMCA'd a bunch of older Generation Consoles/Handheld Games Removing Entire Series' like:

What could this possibly mean? 
Well other then us not being able to get all the games we know and love easily in backup form.  It might mean that Nintendo is gearing up for a Massive Release on the Nintendo eShop, both for Switch and 3DS - to hopefully attract buyers to the n2dsxl.
This would also make sense with Monster Hunter Double Cross being removed from the Title keys websites, and with its Release scheduled for America, maybe Nintendo is getting rid of all traces of the games it wants people to legally acquire.
Update on MH:XX-  (I've been informed of transfering all your save data over to the USA Version when its released IS POSSIBLE - so maybe Nintendo wants to Prevent that as well.

[3DS][News][Release] Luma3DS v8.0 - Introducing "InputRedirect Support" (now with C-STICK!) - Homebrew Launcher Support (no payloads) - Built In "NTR Like" Menu Dubbed "Rosalina"

Luma 3DS was just updated to go along with boot9strap v1.2 - there isn't a ton of technical features worth mentioning, but many new things implemented for the Daily User. Such as:

Built In Input Redirection Support - just from having Luma Running - no more InputProc.cia
The amazing thing about this is that InputRedirectionClient now support C-STICK Functionality as well as the Extra ZR and ZL Buttons (this new feature only works on new3DS)

There is also:

Built in Home Built in Power Button 
Both implemented into the User Interface!
Pretty cool stuff we are now on the verge of fully controlling the 3DS with a Xinput Controller!

[3DS][News][05-30-2017] SciresM just Uploaded an 3DS Unbricking Video - using only a DS Flashcart - Custom Firmware on ANY Device soon?

Earlier Today SciresM tried out a NTR Custom Firmware Flashcart with Boot9Strap on it - Created by Normmatt
To unbrick a Nintendo 3DS
Proof of Concept Video here:

The reason this is possible was revealed by SciresM in a boot9strap/sighax Slideshow.

View the Slideshow: here
Near the end of the slideshow there were two slides (pictured above) pertaining to that fact that: - A certain button combination being Pressed while the lid is closed  - Allows NTR Cartridge Bootingbefore the bootrom.
(Select + Start + X + Magnet on B button + Power = CFW)
This means for almost a year we could have Had Custom Fimware with Widely Available Flashcarts - on ANY FIRMWARE VERSION (had the bootrom been released when dumped)
It's speculated that this was likely so nintendo could easily write NANDs and unbrick consoles themselves super easily, almost like a failsafe.
Since you need to spoof the lid being closed with a magnet - no one would have ever tried these button combinations to Boot from the Cart S…
