3DS Update 5.0.0-11

Basic outline

This post is about the 5.0.0-11 update that happend on march 25th. I have listed below all the things we know and are investigating, if you could comment with anything and include a source link I’ll be happy to add it in. This update doesn’t seem to focus on any blocking of flashcards, but more patching of exploits, additions in the eShop and improvement on speed of the browser and other Nintendo related applications inside the 3DS.

Things to note

  • The update will block access to use of the eShop
  • Your 3DS will constantly prompt you to update to the latest firmware until you do.
  • The update was first brought to my attention by ‘gbatemp’ user ‘steve007’ found here

Things we know

    – Users not having to close the eShop to ensure the ‘Download Later’ feature works while in sleep mode
    – Stability, as well as the ability to download software update data in the background.

  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.
  • System versions that are 5.0.0-0u to 5.0.0.10u will not have these updates included
