    If you noticed, fb3DS can dump bootroms itself now. And boot times have been further reduced, so fb3DS will now practically guarantee a faster boot than b9s (when installed to FIRM0, of course).

    @d0k3 do we still install it the same way as before?

    Yup, you can use OpenFirmInstaller to update, or you can update from within fastboot3DS.

    So what exactly is this SuperHax and what makes it different from the exploit that b9s uses to dump the bootroms?

    Thanks a lot for the improved sdmmc code. I just integrated it into my nds-bootstrap project (dsi homebrew backup loader) and it reduces the loading time there as well. I hope your improvements will be integrated to libnds in the end.

    Anywhere on the SD, CTRNAND, TWLNAND, or TWLPNAND, though one of the first two is recommended. Then just select it from the boot setup.

    Luma bin or .spla (made via splashtool).

    I just wanted to post in this thread and say thanks. I held off on modifying my old menuhax setup for so long since I can be absent-minded and didn't want to fade out on a step and brick my 3ds, but this was really painless and straightforward and helped me restore an emunand i dumped the night before completely seamlessly, and I love the customization this offers.

    Half the reason I waited so long was that I was still using ctr boot manager since I like having access to a few things like decrypt9, hbl, and fbi before I start up considering I fucked up my emunand a few times "trying things", and between this and godmode9 I can now do everything I could before and then some.

    Hopefully my post can convince someone else to take the leap, because I'll tell you what, those fucking repeated reboots just to get my emunand going on menuhax were total bullshit, despite my utmost respect to the author/exploit. I was getting really tired of the instability getting it running then leaving it in sleep mode to not deal with that shit, and running my battery down half the time. Coupled with the wonkyness of dsiware with emunand launching and having to install dupes, it was totally time for a change.

    I'm not sure, but why stay on GateWay? FreeShop is a thing now.
