3DS 11.9.0-42, still stability!

Nintendo has released a new official firmware update for the Nintendo 3DS handheld console. This “firmware update” of December 2018 is a minor update (Update 3DS 11.9.0-42).

Like the latest updates, the new official patch 11.9.0-42 is available for download directly from the 3DS terminal and is compatible with all models released (including the new Nintendo 2DS XL and its variants).

News, compatibility of the update 3DS ver. 11.9.0-42:

  • Compatible with: New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, New Nintendo 2DS XL, Nintendo 2DS

Main changes in version 11.9.0-42:

  • Other improvements in overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to improve the user experience.

that’s still the classic phrase about improving stability, and by the way, it’s the 3DS hack that’s still “stable” on the 3DS scene!

Which R4 card works on 3DS 11.9?

As we know, R4 3DS cards are the oldest DS / 3DS / DSI / 2DS gaming piracy products on the market. They are not expensive, but of good quality. So, which R4 3DS card can crack the new 3DS 11.9.0-42 firmware? Here is a list for you:

  1. R4i Gold Pro 2018
  2. R4i SDHC 3DS RTS
  3. R4i Gold 3DS
  4. R4i SDHC Dual Core
  5. R4i SDHC RTS Lite
  6. Ace3DS Plus

We tested all these cards, they work as usual.

and even the special r4 cards: R4i B9S, Ace3DS X and R4i gold 3ds Plus, are also compatible with the 3DS 11.9 version, that is to say, we can still play DS games in the DS mode of the r4 card pre-flashed on a 3DS 11.9.

So does the NTR mode still work? in other words, 3DS 11.9 supports ntrboothax / magnethax, CFW3DS and homebrew

Which CFW 3DS and homebrew can hack the 3DS 11.9?

Apparently the update 3ds 11.9.0-42 has no influence on the 3DS hack, we can update the firmware without worry. On the forum, there are already players who have tried to launch the CFW and homebrews on the console 3DS / 2DS / New2DS XL 11.9.0-42E, here is the result:

So, no need to downgrade 3DS firmware, as I said above, CFW and Homebrews work directly on the 3DS V11.9.0-42.

Which flashcard is the best to hack 3DS 11.9?

The Sky3ds + card remains the best choice to remove all updates from 3DS firmware, including v11.9. And he used a very powerful technology to hack all the consoles, New 3DS, New2DS, Old 3DS, Old 2DS.

This Sky3ds + card has excellent compatibility, it is still compatible with the new 3DS games, such as Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Miitopia, Mario Party: The Top 100, Metroid: Samus returns, Hey! Pikmin, Sports Superstars Mario, Ever Oasis, Echoes of Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia, etc.

In addition, the update of the Sky3ds + card is very regularly on the market. With a SkyDock, players can enjoy 3DS games online without any problem. This 3DS card has only one flaw, it does not support DS games. If you have a Sky3ds +, when you like to play free DS games, you have to buy the R4 3DS card.
