Remember the guy who released 3DS homebrew exploit Ninjhax back in November last year?
As expected, Nintendo had delisted the game Cubic Ninja and released an update to address the exploit some time later rendering it useless.
However, as expected, the hackers have been at it again and now Ninjhax 2.0 has been released which runs perfectly on the latest firmware update 9.9.
The guy behind it, Smealum says that “this means being able to run homebrew applications such as games, tools and emulators! Additionally, ninjhax 2.0 allows you to run many out-of-region gamecards, as well as use custom themes on your console.”
Not just that, the same guy has also released a “region free loader” called RegionFOUR that works on New 3DS, New 3DS XL, 3DS, 3DS XL as well as 2DS on firmware versions 9.0 to 9.8 allowing “you to bypass mandatory gamecard firmware updates.”
The 3DS homebrew exploit, Ninjhax 2.0 as well as RegionFOUR require a copy of Cubic Ninja, the infamous game, which you can only get for arguably high prices on Amazon where owners are selling used copies precisely for this purpose.
There is a lot that the homebrew advocates are boasting off with Ninjhax 2.0 like NES, SNES, and Game Boy Advance emulators as well as custom made home menu themes.
3DS Homebrew and Nintendo have been playing the game of cat and mice for a while now but will the RegionFOUR loader let the former win?
