[3DS][PSA] Smealum believes he has Fixed the n3ds 11.4 Homebrew Launcher Payloads - Improved Homebrew Support?

If you are using a New 3DS(xl) then you might be missing some homebrew apps, due to almost every one crashing when trying to launch.

Thankfully the epic Smea has updated the New3DS(xl) 11.4 otherapp.bin Payloads, hopefully this means more homebrew will now be functioning on 11.4.0 CFW and Userland.
alright, fixed 11.4 N3DS payloads should be up; both otherapp and ninjhax

[3DS][News][04/28/2017] Nintendo Drops Release Date for New Handheld Console | NEW 2DS XL | Whats Different? Comparing it to 3DS/2DS | Can We Get Custom Firmware or Homebrew? | Custom Japanese Colourway | SD Card + Game Slot Combo w/ Cover

Today is a Pretty big day in the Handheld community as Nintendo did the unthinkable and dropped a release date for a console no one knew was going to exist. 

Special Japanese Only Colourway from Japanese Trailer

Checkout Nintendo's New 2DS XL Section on
Watch Nintendo's Official USA & Japan Trailer Here:

The "New 2DS XL" Boasts the same size screens as the n3DSxl, as well as the same C-Stick + ZR and ZL Buttons. It's the Same weight as the 2DS but has a Folding Screen;  making it much more desirable for portable use!
Can We Hack The New2DSxl with  Luma3DS Custom Firmware and Homebrew?

[3DS][News] Another Luma3DS Release v7.0.3 - More LayeredFS Compatibility for RomFSes mounted as "ext:" Titles like: Taiko no Tatsujin: Don Don! Mystery Adventure

This is just a quick update improving the game compatibility for Luma3DS' new integrated LayeredFS. It will add support to games using RomFSes that mount hacks as "ext:" - Honestly haven't a clue what that means other then more game hacks work now.

The Steps for Updating from 6.6 to 7.0.x that I posted about the other day should still apply perfectly

[3DS][PSA][04-26-2017] Nintendo Updates Swapdoodle - Patches Doodlebomb v1 - (Don't Update Swapdoodle!)

Nintendo has released a quick update for Swapdoodle, effectively bringing 11.4.0-37 Userland Homebrewto a Hault.

[3DS][PSA] How to Properly Update to Luma3DS 7.0.x = FIX Games asking for FIRMWARE UPDATE to play Online [11.3.0-37 CFW]

If you haven't updated your 3DS/2DS to 11.4 (which you shouldn't do) then more then likely you are on 11.3.0-37 with Luma3DS 6.6 Custom Firmware. 

Now normally everything should be functioning perfectly, but recently some CFW users have reported "Games asking them to update to 11.4.0-37 to use Online Play"

Do not fear! For there is a super simple solution to this problem, without having to update firmware.
All we need to do is UPDATE Luma3DS to the Latest Stable Build which is currently 7.0.x


[PKMN][News][04-24-2017] The Pokemon Company Celebrates its 19th Anniversary

Since I was 6 years old The Pokemon company has brought me endless hours of fun, with tv shows as well as video games, toys and pokemon cards.I just wanted to say a big old thank you and I hope we see another 3DS Release, as well as a new Switch Pokemon Game (Pokemon Stars? Are we heading back to Khanto?) who knows.What is your guys favourite Pokemon?

[Emu][News][04-22-2017] WiinUSoft new Release: v3.1 - Use Wii + WiiU Controllers on YOUR PC! - Wiimote Infared Support - Bluetooth Fixes + Sync

Huge news in emulation, one of my favourite Gamepad Button mapping programs: WiinUSoft, received an update last month and I had no idea!

WiinUSoft allows you to connect Wiimotes, Nunchuks, WiiUPro, & Wii Classic Controllers to your PC- via Bluetooth, and Convert the Inputs to XInput.

Now you may ask, why would I want my Wii controllers to be "Xinput"?

Xinput is the type of input that Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers use to communicate. Being has Microsoft owns Xbox, the 360 & One Gamepad driversare installed into most PC Games, Steam games, InputRedirectionClient(3ds) & HID to VPAD(wiiu), meaning they work natively.

Having the Ability to turn a Wiimote or WiiUPro Controller into a PC Xbox Controller opens the doors to many Emulators as well as some cool stuff we can do with Consoles, Such as making controllers work over WIFI on WiiU to play games they were never meant to play. Much like me playing Zelda BOTW with a wiimote here:

[3DS][News][04-22-2017] TheCruel's Free eShop Clone; now receiving Updates through "arc13's" Fork

We were all a little worried about what would happen to freeshop being as unforeseeable circumstances left TheCruel no longer able to update it. Would users switch to ciangel? Or maybe Tikshop? Both apparently boast a more recent/faster updating, game list, but for some reason leave little to be desired Gui-wise. The freeshop is just tried, true, and rolls of the tongue- not to mention it looks very pleasing to the eyes. Luckily for us who are afraid of too much change, arc13, on, has made a fork of freeshop over on notabug.orgClick here to download it.So far it doesn't boast a ton of new features or anything very note worthy but I will mention it is beginning to have themesupport. Which i think its pretty cool, who doesnt love to customize their homebrew!Arc13 has also added an FBI-like top screen with new info: Clock, TW NAND and SD card space.The program uses Encrypted title key file (encTitleKeys.bin) So youll need to find one to download.  Checkout The gbatemp Rel…

[3DS][News][04/15/2017] Homebrew Launcher 11.2 otherapp.bin payloads - working for o3DS/2DS on 11.4 CFW

The old 11.2.0-35 otherapp.bin payload is working on o3DS/2DS 11.4 Custom Firmware to boot the Homebrew Launcher.
Unfortunately there is no way to boot homebrew on o3ds/2ds 11.4 userland(no custom firmware) devices yet but maybe soon!

[3DS][News][04/15/2017] Luma3DS gets update 7.0 from Aurorawright - Implementing LayeredFS - Random Fixes/Upgrades

SORRY for the no article head over to:AuroraWright's Github and view 7.0 release notes - heres a few key things."- Implemented IPS patcher for code.bin, you need to copy the IPS patch to /luma/titles/<titleID>/code.ips.- Added a LayeredFS implementation thanks to @delebile's hard work. Compatibility should be really good as only two games have been reported as being not working out of all the reports (due to the unusual way they were compiled).
To use it, you will need to copy romfs files (following the romfs folder structure) to /luma/titles/<titleID>/romfs/.
Coupled with IPS code patching, this allows for easy legal distribution of game translations/hacks.- Added unverified New3DS SigHax support (it should work fine, though).Added support for the power button in menus (thanks @d0k3).Added possibility to patch NAND apps (like the eShop).Download Play is now region free (thanks @adibsurani)."Use Luma Updater to update to from 6.6 stable or hourly Build t…
