All files under RomFS were updated.
NX bootloader was updated, and is now stored compressed. Before executing, a small stub now uncompresses the bootloader to 0x40004000, size 0x1C000.
The Secure Monitor was updated, and is now stored compressed. Before executing, a small stub now uncompresses the main TrustZone image to 0x7C010800 size 0xC800, and environment setup code to 0x40032000 size 0xC000.
- The 0x100 region used for NX_BOOTLOADER <-> SecureMonitor communications is now 0x40000000 instead of 0x40002E00.
- Memory permissions for .rodata have been fixed, it is now correctly mapped R-- instead of RW-.
- Sealed old keys are now stored in the auxilliary data page (0x1F01FA000) instead of in .rwdata.
- An 0x10 block in the auxilliary page is now used for intermediate key derivation, instead of a block on the stack. This block is only memcleared once at the end, instead of after every time it is used.
- TrustZone code is now cleared from IRAM before signalling to NX_BOOTLOADER that the SecMon is awake.
- A function for getting HardwareType based on fuses now returns 0xF whenever it would previously have returned a non-zero value.
- This function is called by smcGetConfig when ConfigItem_HardwareType is passed in.
- Warmboot.bin has been moved again, and is now copied from 0x4003E000 size 0x17F0 instead of 0x4003D800 size 0x1FF0
- Code configuring what peripherals to set secure-world only now assumes that the code is a retail unit.
- GetRetailType() is still called (though result is discarded), this probably means they now have compile-time switches for retail vs dev.
- The firmware revision magic was changed from 0xA8 to 0x129.
Resource limit initialization was changed:
- PM now sets the maximum number of threads creatable by sysmodules to 0x60 instead of 0x260.
- A new command was added to pm:shell to increase this limit once, on retail this doubles the number of threads creatable to 0xC0.
All titles were updated, except: "Chinese and Korean dictionaries", "European English and Japanese dictionaries", EULA, "Blacklist URL", "Dummy file", "Hoag system config", and flog.
- Localization data etc was updated in applets, likewise for 8XX titles.
- CAction title: new directory "/table" was added. The new file "/table/431FA316E20941779452DD0EBFA05E0E/ApplicationId" contains string "0x01003a400c3da000" - "YouTube".
- Web-applets were updated. "/whitelist/WhitelistEc.txt" in LibAppletShop was updated: "^https://([0-9A-Za-z\-]+\.)*eshop\.nintendo\.net($|/)" was changed to "^https://([0-9A-Za-z\-]+\.)*nintendo\.net(/|$)".
- ControllerFirmware: "/ukyosakyo_ep2_ota.bin" and the .csv were updated.
- Titles BrowserDll and AvatarImage were updated.
- Both bad-word-list titles were updated.

- ldn-sysmodule now has access to service psc:m.
- account-sysmodule: now has access to service npns:s.
- ns-sysmodule: service access to prepo:s was replaced with srepo:u. FS permissions now have bitmask 0x0000000400000000 set (CanFormatSdCard).
- nfc-sysmodule: now has access to services: psm, i2c, and gpio.
- am-sysmodule: now has access to services lm and nvgem:cd.
- btm-sysmodule: now has access to service srepo:u.

- glue-sysmodule: now has access to service srepo:u.
