3DS Homebrew Channel imminent ⊟
French coder Smealum is preparing to release a 3DS Homebrew Channel hack for 3DSes soon! Here’s why this project is awesome:
- It works on the latest 3DS firmware, unlike previous hacks that require outdated versions from a year and a half ago
- This will not load commercial or pirated 3DS ROMs, only homebrew applications and games (though it will be able to run emulators like this SNES one for 3DS)
- It will support North American, European, and Japanese systems
- While Smealum hasn’t implemented region unlocking yet, he says "playing games from other region[s] should almost definitely be possible" — I expect this will be with imported cartridges, not ROMs
Smealum has previously said that 3DS owners will not need to use a flashcard to get the exploit to work. Much thanks to @gemesisDev for the photo above and to Octopus for the extra info.
