Allows you to change the Switch in-game Joy-Con color, to match your outside 'case', if you changed it yourself!

Joy-Con's come officially in couple of different colors, most recently, the new Neon-Yellow for Splatoon 2, but you can't always find them available in stores, but now thanks to Nintendo Scene Developer 'ph0en1x', you can firmware re-flash your Joy-Con in-color game color to match the outside case color, if you had somehow changed it yourself like with paint or stickers or other outside physical mods, etc.

The last few hours, the Nintendo scene on Twitter has been on fire, after @QuarkTheAwesome started dropping various 'subtle' hints that the next entry point for those that sadly updated their Nintendo Wii U consoles to the latest version 5.5.2 might be found in the ads streaming thru the Crunchyroll App.

NNID info, WiFi slots info, Parental control info + more

3DSident, like PSPident and VITAident is a identity tool for your 3DS. It displays numerous amounts of information that the console does not provide, and at this point 'joel16' figures his program displays almost every available information that you can possibly get through software from your Nintendo 3DS handheld, as such it will be the 'last release', except for maybe minor bug fixes, etc.

Formula Found For Generating AES Keys

Following up from the recent 'Nintendo Switch Kernel Progress', 'Plutoo' @qlutoo has tweeted out that the Key generate formula on how big 'N' now assembles the #kek (aka) 'Key Encryption Key' on the Switch, which is bit different than the 3DS system.
Of course you still need to find all the values to plug into the formula, by its another major step towards unlocking the crypto used on the Switch, and it shows that progress is being made on steady basis on the newly released hybrid it should not be long before some form of working 'homebrew' exploit is released using either a game, or savefile, or app similar to how the Nintendo 3DS scene got started. :)

As usual more 'System Stability', but 'exploits' and 'flashcarts' are reported to be still working!

Nintendo has just released a new version of its firmware for its current handheld consoles. The 3DS, New3DS, 2DS, New2DS, and all XL derivatives take advantage of this mandatory update 11.5.0-38 if they connect to the internet. Changelog is common, it emphasizes system stability, we know what that means. "Additional improvements in the overall stability of the console have been made, as well as other minor improvements to make the use more convenient."
