When it comes to these "stability" updates, it's actually targetting the latest exploits for 3DS homebrew. They are non-specific and non-descript so as not to help the groups releasing / developing the exploits.

 

Or at least that is the theory :p Most exploits are closed after the updates land, but who knows if any other performances are actually gained. I don't notice any.

It's funny how they haven't bothered closing the exploits on the Wii U. I guess they have pretty much abandoned it.

This update patches the MenuHax and BrowerHax exploit as well, so don't update unless you have a secondary exploit installed if you want to keep homebrews.
