    Hello, I recently installed the homebrew launcher on my 3ds and I have a few questions I couldn't find answers on.

    My setup: New 3ds, Firmware 11.2.0-35u, Homebrew launcher through Soundhax.

    My first question is why some apps don't show up properly on the launcher. An example is Gameyob GBC emulator. It doesn't have a .3dsx file in it anywhere. I see things like build it using devkitpro but I have no idea what that means. There's other apps that are similar to this.

    My second question is are there any ways to get custom firmware without a hardmod on this firmware? I'd like to install freeshop but a hard mod is out of the question for me because I have the black friday 3ds and I don't want to risk bricking it.

    My last question is simply are there any things I should do now that I have homebrew launcher? Any essentials that I don't know about that will help me future proof etc.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    To answer question #2: Follow the CFW guide here and NEVER FOLLOW VIDEO GUIDES.

    There is a .3dsx of GameYob in the zip download here: https://github.com/Steveice10/GameYob/releases

    As KunoichiZ said install A9LH and CFW first since Emulators are somehow useless with Custom VC since it runs better

    It's Custom Virtual Console. So basically it's a ROM that you inject in an Virtual Console game.
