Update: Full patch can be found after the break.

Nintendo has released the latest firmware update – version 7.0.0-13 – for the 3DS, and it’s a big one.

First, Miiverse is now fully supported on the 3DS. After installing the new firmware, you should see a new icon on the home menu that will allow you to access the online community.

Today’s update also brings about Nintendo Network IDs on the 3DS. Names registered on Wii U can now be used on the 3DS and eShop balances can be combined. Alternatively, a Nintendo Network ID can be created from scratch.

A StreetPass update is also available, though we’re not quite sure what it adds at present.

Added Support for Nintendo Network IDs:

    • Users can now create or link a Nintendo Network ID, which is required to use some network services, from within System Settings
    • Nintendo eShop has been updated to support Nintendo Network IDs (*1)
    • For more information regarding Nintendo Network IDs, please visit our Nintendo Network ID introduction page

Added Support for Miiverse:

    • Users can now view and post to Miiverse from Nintendo 3DS family systems
    • For more information regarding Miiverse, please visit our Miiverse introduction page

Added a Software Update Notification:

    • A notification will now display when software is started and update data is available (*2)

Removed the limit to system transfers:

    • The previous limit of five system transfers per system has been removed

Changed the start-up method of Nintendo 3DS Camera from the HOME Menu:

    • Pressing the L and R Buttons simultaneously will now start the Nintendo 3DS Camera from the HOME Menu

Improved system stability and usability:

    • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience

    I tried updating but keep getting errors :(

    Can anyone access the eShop after updating? I cannot seem to at this point.

    • Carlos

      I can’t even update, so I can’t check for you.

      • sonicfan1373

        Yeah I read some forums where people are still having problems getting the update. It appears to be a regional issue. Hopefully it will resolve soon.

    • I am Error.

      Update went fine, seemed link accounts okay, Miiverse is working but CRAWLING. eShop wouldn’t start for me, just loads and loads and loads.

    For anyone getting errors with the update change your DNS in connection settings. Here’s the link. I got it working after doing this. http://en-americas-support.nintendo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/217/session/L2F2LzEvdGltZS8xMzg2NjUyNDU2L3NpZC9qVjdiQXJIbA%3D%3D

    • I am Error.

      Are you able to access the eShop? That’s my only problem at present.

      • Carlos

        Nope. Got an error.

        • I am Error.

          Cool, thanks for checking, guys! Maybe it’ll be running in the morning. Also, I couldn’t access it on my Wii U, either.

        I also have the eShop error

        • Carlos

          It’s working now.

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            yep, i posted this after many many tries and while I was having problemas, but it seems to be working now here too =)

      • Carlos

        It seems to be working now

    Sounds good.

    About time they dropped the transfer limit. Though, now I can’t access eshop. Too bad we can’t sync up multiple 3DS systems.

    Hopefully my 3DS XL will arrive soon.
