Mr Smea released hax2.6 in github, the new feature is that you can return to home menu from homebrew launcher. Hax 2.6 can works well with 3DS 10.6.0-31.
Ninjhax team also released ninjhax 2.6, which can go to the homebrew launcher through copy of Cubic Ninja. Ninjhax 2.6 allows users to run many out-of-region 3ds roms. We tested that sky3ds+/ sky3ds can use ninjhax 2.6 to support out-of-region 3ds games on latest 3DS 10.6.0-31.
The user guide of ninjhax 2.6 is the same as ninjhax 2.0(you need to download the the latest “homebrew starter kit ” for ninjhax 2.6): Ninjhax 2.0 user guide.
Tips: If you want to use ninjhax 2.6 to run out-of-region 3ds games with sky3ds+, please click the region free launcher icon. Then you will find the icon of Cubic Ninja, press sky3ds+ orange button to switch games. Then remove your sky3ds+ completely from your console and then insert it again. The icon of out-of-region 3ds game will show.
As pictures show, we test ninjhax 2.6 with sky3ds+ on 3DS 10.6.0-31E. And the game: Fire Emblem If JP works well with sky3ds+ on 3DS 10.6.0-31E through ninjhax 2.6.
Oot3dhax also works well with 3DS10.6 which can arrive homebrew launcher through a copy of The Legend of Zelda : Ocarina of Time.
Mr Smea think that browserhax/menuhax are not comatible with 10.6.
Browserhax -use the stock web browser to get homebrew running.
Menuhax- use home menu itself as a permanent entrypoint to get homebrew running.
About the new feature: retuen to home menu from homebrew launcher. ninjhax/oot3dhax and menuhax should works well with it. While browserhax is just with NEW3DS, but not OLD3DS.
He recommended that users should update your payload even if you do not need the new fearure because the hax 2.6 should fix some bugs. In order to improve the customer experience, it is better to update it.
Besides, the new features is still an experiment and is not stable now.
