System Titles



The global boolean preventing SAFE_FIRM from being launched is now set in Process9's crt0 if CFG9_BOOTENV has bit0 set, that is to say, if it has been launched from a firmlaunch (this register is set to 1 just before a firmlaunch). The following code has also been added in the firmlaunch function itself: if(!(CFG9_BOOTENV & 1) /* not a firmlaunch */ || (CFG9_BOOTENV & 6) /* firmlaunched from LGY_FIRM (if even possible at all) */) goto panic.

This is to fix safehax.

New3DS kernel9loader

New3DS kernel9loader wasn't updated.

ARM11 kernel

There are at least, and likely, three changes:

  • CFG11_WIFIUNK is now set to 0x10 in Kernel11's crt0
  • A new SVC, svc 0x5A has been introduced, to enable or disable wifi
  • The code handling svcArbitrateAddress with type = SIGNAL, has been changed. It now counts the actual number of threads arbitrating on that address, and if it is non-zero, it executes the following hack: if(coreId == 0 && currentThread->dynamicPriority >= 50) waitCycles(0x64E). This supposedly works around the lag issue in some games, which has been introduced on 11.3.0-36


No FIRM ARM11 sysmodule was changed.


The CONFIG11_Registers are no longer directly mapped under userland for NWM-sysmodule. This prevents anything under NWM-module from modifying the GPUPROT register.

The codebin was updated.

The crt0-poke in PDN that NWM previously did:

 0x1EC4010C |= 0x10

.. has been removed from NWM. This one has been moved into kernel bootup.

Accesses to 0x1EC40180 have been replaced by a new syscall, 0x5A.

A new string was added at 0x13E200: "used"(with 3 0xFF bytes afterwards). The wifi-fw was moved from .data to .rodata.

Internet Browser

The web-browser was updated, only for New3DS. See here for details.
